I have pureed everything today. I made black bean soufflé early in the day to go with the slaw-topped taco my husband made later. I cooked & pureed extra beans to put up in the freezer as a soup base for next week. Lunch was delivery pizza. Our mid-afternoon snack was mango-peach-guava-banana smoothie. While my husband made apple-pepper slaw for our tacos, I processed a half-bushel of apples for applesauce. I have washed my food processor four times today. (Just a reminder, no dishwasher in my house.) I am trying to keep busy.
I mean, I did finish framing a commission. I am waiting for THREE past-due notifications. I need mindless busy. How do venues take our money and not notify on time? Why not just under-promise? Why not five themselves and extra week then surprise us all with an early notification? Of course, my imagination and insecurities ramp up to a 14 & I begin to assume that I haven’t gotten an email because I have been rejected and I was so bad that I didn’t warrant a response. Or, when left with too much time to dwell on it, I start to become paranoid like an 1990s sitcom and start wondering if my phone is working or if email is out-of-order. Ridiculous. So, soufflé, soup, smoothie & applesauce. Noisy. Delicious. Busy.
