2012, Week Forty-Five

Metro North

Nov 4 – Our whirlwind weekend in New York came to a close on Sunday, with a Metro North ride from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central. I love trains.

Dead tulips
Nov 5 – When we got home, these once beautiful tulips were a little dead. But I still find them intriguing looking.

Tortilla Soup
Nov 6 – I made tortilla soup. The soup itself isn’t too interesting, but once you add in all the tasty stuff, like avocados and cilantro, it’s surprisingly complex and flavorful.

Arkansas Black Apple
Nov 7 – Saw these gorgeous heirloom apples at the market and I had to try one. They are great: very crunchy and just sweet enough without being cloying.

Research at Noble Cafe
Nov 8 – I am writing A LOT these days: I decided to jump into NaNoWriMo, and I’m actually writing a novel. And I’m also trying to finish writing a book on data management for libraries. And work has gotten pretty busy, too. So, yeah, November’s going to be a little nuts.

Spaghetti and Meatballs
Nov 9 – I took a little break on Friday night to make spaghetti and turkey meatballs. I made enough extra meatballs to freeze, so I can make a quick and easy dinner on a busy weeknight. I love my freezer.

Sassy!
Nov 10 – Were you obsessed with Sassy magazine in high school? I was. And I still am, a little bit. Last week I bought 10 issues of Sassy on eBay and they finally came in the mail Saturday morning. I’ve spent the weekend so far gorging on 1994, when I’m not writing. It’s kind of fabulous.
