Pen-pen in my lap:

Penny. I’m getting up now. #catsofinstagram


I just told her I had to get up. She was not impressed. I keep my great american aran afghan on a couch in the craft room and do use it when I'm lounging in there.

I spent hours washing all the ramps last night. I put some dough into the oven to proof for dinner while I cleaned them. After an hour- I checked the dough. It was in the bottom oven and I had set the top oven, so the dough was still cold. At this point, it was 7:30 and I was like, "No... no No NO!" Dollar came to see what the disaster was and I just said, "We're not having pizza until 9pm." 

As I stood at the sink stripping skin from around bulbs and dunking the ramps in water, pondering all manner of things because I've got nothing but time and thoughts, I wondered whether I subconsciously purposefully sabotaged the timing of dinner. After the first hour, I still had an hour+ worth of ramps to wash. Maybe I set the wrong oven to give myself another hour? There are so many ramps to wash. Is this what being a chef is like? Prepping food for hours on end? Wait- is that what a sous chef does? Would all these ramps be one night's worth of meals at a restaurant? I heard a theory about Westworld- that Logan's father's consciousness was put into Abernathy and that's why he flipped out last season when he saw the picture of the woman in the city- because that would mean it was his daughter in the picture. You know who doesn't get enough credit? Dave Bautista. He was really good in Infinity War. And as Drax in general...

And on and on and on. But it's all worth it when I can take this picture:

All the ramps washed and bundled. Some for me, some for fam, some for me, some for coworkers, some for me. 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 #ramps #foraging #alliumtri
