The worms will be eating well for the next few days, which also means Jeff and I are eating well:
- I cooked 2 large pumpkins. Freezing 10 pints of pumpkin puree (some of which will be turned into pumpkin butter, eventually) and feeding the skins to the worms.
- I made beet feta soup and fed all the skins to the worms. The recipe was from: The River Cottage Cookbookby Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and it was awesome! The entire book is awesome, but this recipe was a combination I don’t know that I would have thought of on my own.
- I made chicken (4 Quarts) & beef stock (2 Quarts), feeding some onion and carrot peels to the worms.
I cleaned my sewing room and I’m so pleased with the changes. I did so in a very slow progression, taking lots of time for reflection and memories of my pappap. I went about it much differently than I would have normally and I think because of that I got better results. I wish I had taken a before photo to share with you all.
Doing Not Thinking Challenge Update: Well, I’m happy to report that I did it! I mailed off a query letter and sample pages to my first publisher on Thursday, October 30th! Honestly, I don’t know if I would have gotten it done without making this challenge so public. I was/am afraid of rejection of course, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, and I have a list of publishers to approach should I get rejected by this one. Please check the links on the Doing Not Thinking Page to see how the participants are doing. You all have been such a source of inspiration and encouragement, thank you.
