Soup-er cool…

Grocery outlet has a really great low sodium chicken broth on sale for 99c for a rather large carton.

Which just so happens to be the perfect thing to eat in this horrible fire season. Much like the nuclear winter that is so favored in Cold War post world war 3 post apocalyptic fiction, the current smoky state of California is freaking cold.

So making egg flower soup is just the sort of easy comfort food this Keto guy is craving currently.

Lucky for my, egg drop soup is really easy to make.

It’s name says it all.

It’s chicken soup with veggies, chicken if you want , and some beaten egg stirred into the boiling soup.

Simple and elegant at the same time.

Driving faster in my car….

Getting out of my car often spooks the local wildlife, weather it’s the urban homeless or the more rural wildlife when I am in “photo safari” mode.

But the idea of getting out of my car when it’s wildfire season is no an exciting one.

But I thought this bird was worth it.

I was even happy with the bird I flight shot, which always seems to happen when I get greedy and try to move closer.

Waking up early.

I feel fine and I feel good
I’m feeling like I never should
Whenever I get this way
I just don’t know what to say
Why can’t we be ourselves like we were yesterday?

Bizarre love triangle -new world order

My iPhone app choose to start my day with with a random album like it does most days, but unlike Monday thu Friday , instead of getting up and going to work , I got to embrace the luxury of staying in bed, covers up to my head and listening to the music.

Most of the way into Substance I decided to get out of bed and see to my twin mourning rituals. That of meds. And coffee.

With my small pills swallowed and strong coffee brewing, breakfast had to be made.

Breakfast is a relatively simple affair on most work days. Partly because I need to make it in a hurry, and partly because I am not very creative first thing in the mourning.

But on the weekends I can be more artsy.

Today switching from music to the newest James Bond audio book, I happily made a simple an colorful mix of veggies, and eggs.

Mourning sun

I used to think that the day would never come
I’d see delight in the shade of the morning sun. -New order- true faith

Driving to work on Friday, the sun rose at the same time as the day before,but today it was hidden behind a thick layer of clouds.

The sky went from dark waves of clouds, with ribbons of darker shadows and light. To a muted red glow like something out of a sci fi movie.
