Mosaic ice cream cone

The glue hasn't yet dried.

The ice cream is made of "sea spikes," but I don't know what exactly that means. Maybe I should ask.

400 O'Clock

I spent a lot more time in the kitchen today than what I have been at my new job.

I mentioned something to one of the chefs about how I noticed he never sets a timer and I have to use one always. He said that after years of professional cooking, he just knows when to go back and check on the various foods he has cooking all at the same time. So then I said something along the lines of, "I mean, it's difficult to keep track of time since the digital clock on the oven is stuck on 4 o'clock."

"Hey, Jeannette, in case it ever comes up at your house.....you should know that four-zero-zero means four hundred degrees, not four o'clock."


I blogged about this

Same Mosaic, Different Job

Other than visiting family and catching up with a deeply-loved and missed friend, I haven't been up to much. Gardening season is over....maybe next year I'll venture into cold-weather growing. I'm dragging my feet on the robot mosaic. Normally I work on a project and can't seem to get enough, but I'm not motivated on this one. I ordered some materials and hopefully can settle on the boy's ice cream and his face and chest. Then I need to figure out the girl's bow. Then maybe tape off and grout all that stuff....or figure out a way to make myself feel like the bike chain pieces aren't going to easily detach. Then I can worry about the background, which I have no idea what to do, except maybe have all the pieces shaped like triangles. What to do; what to do?

Very slowly figuring out the #robot #mosaic. I may have finally found materials for the boy's face and ice cream.

In other news, I love my new job at Just Right Eating. It's been eye-opening to learn about food and what it means to eat balanced meals. I've spent the last several years learning about processed and packaged frankenfoods, realizing they are a substance created in the lab for people (and their pets) to eat in place of whole foods. I didn't figure that one out until age 33.

I've spent the last couple of years growing vegetables, canning food, preparing homemade meals and portioning them out for leftovers, and so on. My next step is to grasp what it truly means to eat a well-balanced diet. Heck, I'm not even following the meal plan true to the way Stephanie has intended for all of the people who are eating her food four times a day seven days a week, but I've noticed I have more energy, I don't feel tired after meals and I don't feel bloated. I am eating a much wider variety of foods than what I am used to and I feel better. Stephanie educates and inspires me to eat healthier and work harder every day.
