Do you ever get home from work and immediately shuck all of your uncomfortable clothing and do ballet jumps through the air while naked because if feels so wonderful to break free from the chains from adult life (at least for a moment)? No? Oh. Me either. I’m not sure why I even asked that…..
To add to the joy of getting out of that dress and heels, I came home on my lunch break and started dinner in the crockpot. Soooo….no cooking duties tonight! Woot! That only leaves laundry and the freedom to paint rocks.
Yes. You read that correctly. Paint rocks. Apparently there is a fledgling fad on the Great Facebook (sarcasm font) that is trying to take hold. It’s like that awful Pokemon obsession but much much less lame. (Shut up. Yes it is.) What you do is gather some rocks (hopefully legally) and paint super cute, silly, and/or inspirational things on them and then hide them in random places in your area. (Be sure to paint the name of your local rock painting site on the bottom!) You do this in the hopes that someone will find it, be delighted, notice the page name on the bottom, and report their find online. Then, hopefully, they will rehide it elsewhere and be inspired to rush out and paint and hide their own rocks. I have no idea what the long-term goal of this is, but I enjoy it. I feel kinda like a gift fairy flitting around hiding miniature pieces of art for others to find.
Don’t judge. Just try it! You may even find the whole process therapeutic.
Peace and oil paint grease.
Song of the day:
I chose Asleep at the Wheel by The Bloodhound Gang because knowing that song helped me solve Final Jeopardy last night.
Book of the day:
My book challenge dictates that I read a book published before 1900, so I am reading Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss. Who the heck has that much practical survival knowledge in their noggin? The characters obviously didn’t live in the digital age, in which we know a whole lot of nothing because why should we? If you don’t know something, Google it.
Recipe of the day:
Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing
I have no idea where this recipe originated or who to give credit to.
1 lb chicken
1 box herb stuffing
1 can cream of whatever (you pick)
1 can’s worth of milk
A few slices of Swiss cheese
A few pats of butter
Salt, pepper, other seasonings
Put a crockpot condom (er….liner) in your crockpot. Place chicken (frozen or thawed…it matters not) in there. Season. Top with slices of Swiss cheese. Mix the cream of and the milk and pour over chicken. Top with entire box of stuffing mix. Dot with pats of butter. Cover. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Make a veggie to go with it for diminished guilt level.
