I went to bed and not long after took a pain pill and was able to more easily get through the night. I’m nearly out of them but have enough to get through the weekend and call in for a refill Monday. I didn’t have any bad dreams from them this time. I was just feeling very uncomfortable and unable to sleep.
I went to the farmers market and a couple of other errands and then back home with my feet up. I took a nap since I still didn’t sleep that well, and woke up groggy. We three went to California Pizza Kitchen and had an interesting discussion of Lettuce and E-Coli and industrialized farming. I recommend seeking out the current FDA and CDC latest reports on the E-Coli outbreak. After CPK I think I’m getting even less interested in dining at corporate restaurants.
On the way home we stopped at my apartment to pick up a couple of heavy kitchen things (cast iron braising pot and stone mortar and pestle). I want to cook some oxtails next weekend and I have one big piece of pork shoulder frozen at my apartment that I’ll use for a version Cochinita Pibil that I like.
Overall I was very very low energy today. More pain meds and good sleep tonight should help. My only real accomplishment today was finding a source for watching season two of The Good Place. My Girlfriend has mandated that I wait to see it with her. It won’t be long so I’m ok. I have other things to watch. I see there is a new season of the football show “All or Nothing” on Amazon. I know, I’m not a football fan but I’ve enjoyed the previous seasons. If football can be edited to just the good parts I find it pretty entertaining. Though the game ends up being about 5 minutes of footage I think…
