Frantic

Ahhhh, how does every night end up nonstop activity?? I have to be fast for real now! I got home from school around 3:30 expecting my camera battery to have been redelivered, but even though the mail had arrived, there was no battery, grrrrrr. I tried calling the post office a million times but kept getting the busy signal, so I decided I might as well head over there anyway since I had to send off my Blogger Valentine’s Day Exchange package. I needed a snack first, so I had 1/2 cup of chopped apples and melon with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and nutmeg (love my spices!):

As an afterthought, I filled my empty ramekin with the rest of my frozen carrot cake because I was so crazed:

I was running around like a crazy person trying to do 12 things at once to get ready to leave, and I knocked this poor little girl off my shelf:

So I had to glue her back together:

I actually managed to get my battery from the post office (wow, something worked out!), and then I raced back home so I could get started on my work homework (that was really supposed to get done yesterday!). Because stuff falls and breaks when I rush around, I took a mammoth spill on the sidewalk coming back. There wasn’t even any ice, so I don’t know what happened! And it was one of those falls that just keeps going and going. I kept thinking it was about to be over, and I kept going down more. By the end, I was totally splayed out on the ground with my arms stretched out in front of me. I tore my gloves and my jeans, but no skin, yessss!! The lady walking her dog behind me was horrified, but I reassured her I was ok and resumed my mad dash (will I ever learn?).

I banged out the rest of my stuff for work while also getting several things going to make my BSI recipe. I don’t have time to post the recipe tonight, but here are some visuals to whet your appetite:

It was SO good!!! I’m thrilled about how it came out because I’ve never made ravioli from scratch before, and this particular ravioli was sizzling with flavor complexity :-). I’ll post the full recipe tomorrow night.

OK, back to my frantic whirling. Still have a few more things to do before sleep, and my bed is worried I am not going to give it enough attention tonight!

    When I saw you taking photos of this little lady for your blog I was wondering how she was involved, but was too tired to ask. Mystery solved. Glad her ponytail and head are both back where they belong.
