crabby Kat's Journal, 17 January 2013

I'm thankful for the beautiful sunny days we're having; still cold, but gorgeous out. Just saw a red tail hawk land in a nearby tree, pause, then swoop down in the wetlands, probably picking up dinner.

I took my partner to the airport last night; off for a week in Costa Rica with daughter. Wow, is there a hole in my world! Maybe it's because of the leaving-the-country part; no texting, phone calls more difficult. I got a text from Houston as they were boarding the plane for the last leg of the trip early this morning; red-eye flights sound awful! I already sent an e-mail for when they're settled in enough to make use of the wifi there.

I think it will take a while for me to get over missing my partner & get on with enjoying the feeling of freedom that comes with being on my own.

I'm free to eat what I please; planning a fiery hot Turkey Enchilada Casserole. I can exercise whatever hours I want, as many classes a day as my body can handle. Unfortunately, the pain in my left knee and hamstring are kind of interfering with my plans. I have to choose activities wisely to give my body to heal. It's a little late in the day to make that casserole; tomorrow for sure!

I'd like to find some jalapeno powder to use in making my own kale chips; found a recipe that I can heat up a bit. I do have some chipotle chili powder, which will probably do just fine. I have everything but the kale; think I want organic so will stop at Whole Foods on the way home from the gym tomorrow (I'll try not to buy the expensive ready-made cilantro lime jalapeno kale chips they have there).

I just need to find some energy! I slept like a log last night, was careful in my Silver Sneakers class today, went shopping, made lunch, and have pretty much been planted here since. Watching birds & squirrels & Beau, listening to music, reading the new book I bought & downloaded on my Kindle, etc. Oh yeah, I put a load of laundry in; guess I should get up & dry it. My butt's falling asleep, anyway.

Hi, hope you enjoy your time alone. I am sure you have mixed feelings. I always long for time alone then when I get it, find myself kind of lost. We are funny creatures, humans, that we are.

Mmmmm kale chips with jalapeno powder sounds awesome... I love kale chips. In soups, they're like my new go to... dofijsdf no more crackers, just lots and lots of kale chips! Having your partner out of the country is tough, like you said, the no texting and calling thing sure does stink but.. a week isn't too long, and there is REALLY no better feeling than meeting with a loved one after a long awaited absence comes to an end... it's magic :)

I love your life! The ready made chips sound perfect for emergency which you don't qualify for...LOL...probably too spicy for me but ever since I lost weight I don't get heartburn from heat anymore so I might look them up and give them a try. I left my Kale chips idea in a message for you.
