so I had Christmas without water, had to skip the 2 invites I had because no water.... and then the heat is affected because of no water...my neighbor and friend Nicole asked me to go listen to music Friday after the shop closed....and offered a shower if I wanted it...I went to the music concert but begged off of the shower... why not see if I could make it till Sunday? lol
Sunday I bathed. the village celebrated. today JY arrived to inspect my various water and heating issues. He is in a foul mood because of his supposed poor xmas. what about my fucked up holiday??????????????? he needs a spanking. or a trip to the beach. he's a bitch in winter....god, these fucking french countryfolks and their winter doldrums. freakin' Perigordins...
nothing that a bottle of white and a little puff*puff can't medicate.
also. I recently decided to try and cook from my larder till it is depleted vs. shopping and overflowing.
this has resulted in:
poulet en cidre encore.
rice and tuna salad.
fish curry with zucchini.
and various accoutrements. I continue to rifle through my freezer and larder as opposed to shopping. I wanted to deplete my larder before shopping further. For some reason, having lots of stuff on my shelves equalled security ... but moving here I realized that so many folks shop day to day for foodstuffs....I want a balance.... well-stocked shelves that can get me through a short spell, but avoiding the American sickness of weekly shopping and *hoarding* vs. capitalizing on what we have to put forth delicious well-balanced meals.
tonight I had tuna and rice salad, crackers with goat cheese and white wine. slurp.
um maybe I'm kinda tipsy and that is why this post is jimbojambalayed?! lol.
also strangely noticed that today I went from 74th most popular blog in France to 96th.
