Loaded this morning for want of something more topical

Long weekend last weekend, short week, canceled classes, I am confused.

And now I find I can’t load images to my posts….


*breathes deeply*

*counts to ten*

I’m going to watch TV, later.

…next morning

At 4am this morning, I still couldn’t load images, so I switched off the ‘puter and went back to bed. I am now enjoying my first coffee of the morning (about to get my second) and I find I can load them.

Now, after all the frustration, I can’t remember what I was going to write about last night.

*Babble on in the event memory returns*

Egg carton beside my cayenne pepper plant

Last week on Change the World Wednesday the challenge was to grow something maybe indoors. I accepted the challenge and filled the segments of an egg carton with homemade compost and put two little parsley seeds in each part.

Result, I now have seven little sprouts, and another three have just broken through the soil since last night.

Brazilians are notorious for living from one salary to the next. Come the end of each month, the cry is almost a unanimous “Tô duro!” (I’m broke) I am usually astute enough to avoid this problem. However, this month I have achieved Brazilianhood, “I’m broke!”

I can’t go out, I can’t buy beer, I can’t eat at my favourite restaurants. I was invited out for sushi tonight, but I had to decline. I am counting my slices of bread, I have four eggs in the fridge, I opened my last box of milk this morning for my coffee. It has been months since I was this destitute.

Now that I have written something in leiu of the post I had intended, I will blog off!

Later, maybe…
