Foraging for Flowers

Tonight I made the violet jelly from the violets I foraged on Wednesday….They look pretty and the taste is subtle. I would say it is more suited for a cheese tray…or what is that new fancy word? Oh yeah…charcuterie….this jelly would make a nice addition to a charcuterie platter. It was worth the time crawling around in the grass foraging for violets.

Unfortunately because I was foraging wild violets on Wednesday I missed my opportunity to go to the farm where I buy my meat for the week.  I can get up tomorrow and leave at the same time I do during the week and bring the meat home before I go or I can leave a little later and head straight out to my naturalist field trip and keep the meat on ice for seven plus hours??? I didn’t realize that they opened at 8am, I had been planning from a 9am start. Regardless….I have to go tomorrow.

I guess I will be getting up early tomorrow. It wouldn’t be so bad but my dreams have been so intense and constant that I am waking up tired….

Even at lunch where I only sleep for 15-20 minutes….today I dreamed about a barn dance. It’s not a restful sleep when I am constantly dreaming. I think that the one hour of sleep after my colonoscopy was the best sleep I have had in years. I honor my dreams and understand that they have meaning but come on….give a girl a break once in a while…

I am very happy that it is Friday!! It has been an exceptionally hard week of trying to fit in a world that I am not a part of to say the least…

Hulu recently added Zombieland….which is to the Girl what Buffy was to me. She quotes every line before it is said…it’s a good thing I like that movie….Of course one movie doesn’t compare to seven seasons but it has a similar effect…Zia
