I got up this morning and threw together a smoothie. It's official, strawberries are my least favorite smoothie berry. How can that be when I love strawberries? I also had a tiny piece of salmon to cook. As I sipped my smoothie and took my pills, I laid the salmon in a cast iron skillet with a bit of avocado oil and salt. Later, as I sat in the living room, watching Bob sleep in the chair I wanted to be in, I nibbled it and pondered why it was one of the best pieces of salmon I've had in ages. Why is it, that you can do the same thing over and over, and sometimes it is perfect, and other times it's just ok? There's got to be some kind of life lesson in there, but I learn those mostly by letting them simmer in the back of my head, so I will let that simmer away and move on.

In other news, Ernie and Owen and Duncan head to Space in Evanston tomorrow to see my beloved Aaron Lee Tasjan. Why the hell I didn't get myself a ticket I don't know. I guess I just thought Owen and Duncan might feel cooler without a full set of parents. As long as they tell Aaron Lee how much love I send along it will be ok. Seriously folks, if you haven't listened to this man, you really need to get on it.

I haven't posted this many videos in a while. I must be feeling good. Or, he's amazing. Or both.

And now, I must give strawberries a little credit. The smoothie with strawberries did turn a particularly lovely shade of pale green when it had been sitting a bit. Interesting how the berries come on strong right off but the greens come through in the end. Is that another life lesson? I must be thinking too much.

Onward, with my good friend Bob (the one who is sleeping in MY chair).
