My day as a cat.

September 2, 2013

They can't all be winners.

Soooo…. It turns out that if you sleep all late afternoon and into the evening, it is difficult to fall asleep at night. But if you don’t have to go to work the next day, you can act like a cat and only wake up to eat.

I am so lazy.

Ok, I did do two things worth noting: I finally finished a job that I thought about last year. I collected empty frames and planned to fill the interior with cloth-covered homosote (bulletin-board-like stuff that’s not cork). A couple of months ago I cut some homosote for just two frames, and today I finally covered them. Only six more to go. Ha ha ha ha ha!!


The plan is to hang these up at school for little areas of ‘always nicely framed’ art. Well see how it goes.

The second was to make another tomato tart – fancily called ‘gallette’. It’s just a pie with tomatoes and stuff. The recipe is here, except i just made basic pie crust. (still trying to figure that out.) Saturday’s was pretty basic – just cooked onions, tomato and basil – but for today’s I added fresh corn and it was pretty good.


Then I took another nap.

    Hey! I was there when you cut those boards!

    Hmm… I wonder if I would like pie crust with savory fillings. I don’t much care for it with sweet fillings. I may have to conduct some experiments.

    Cool idea with the frames.

    So very creative on both items!

    I wonder if you could make a little beef pot pie this way, but completely cover it. So it would be like a beef pot pie hot pocket.
