Quattro Stagione

On my way home yesterday, I decided to get pizza. I ordered from one of my favorite pizza places. One of their specialty pizzas sounded really delicious. It had prosciutto, black olives, mushrooms, and artichoke hearts. Mmm…

When I got the pizza home, it looked like this:

It had the four ingredients, but they were in four separate sections of the pizza. Ha! I laughed and was sad at the same time. Apparently, that’s what quattro stagione is.

I briefly considered just stacking one piece from each section on top of each other and biting through all four pieces at once, but decided to just have a piece at a time.

Oh well. At least I have some tasty leftovers.

    Quattro crazy. That pizza is like a little kid that doesn’t want his food to touch.

Temperature Regulation

When I come home after school, my apartment is HOT! I turn on the air conditioner right away, but it takes a while for the cool air to get from the living room to the bedroom, even with fans helping move it along.

At bedtime, it can still be kind of warm in my bedroom, so I have just a sheet. As the night goes on, I pull a lightweight duvet on as a cover. By morning, it can be really cold. That’s when I pull the quilt over. If that doesn’t seem to do it, I have a small blanket hanging on the closet doorknob that I can pull under the sheet. It warms me quickly.

I need to get a bedside table.

Refrigerator

I haven’t really stocked my kitchen with food. Part of it is that I’m just kind of lazy when it comes to fixing myself meals. Part of it is that food is so expensive.

I’ve gotten a few things for my refrigerator. Mostly cheese, it seems. There is also some cookie dough in there. It’s about three weeks old now, so I won’t be baking it. I keep not throwing it away because it’s in storage containers I don’t want to throw out.

Milk, eggs, jelly, and some leftovers from Bible study last night. That’s about it.

The important thing is the milk.  Without milk, Brad is sad.

Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Arrr!!

I have been having trouble being motivated to do any kind of work lately. Grading papers is normally hard. Now it’s extra special hard. My apartment is not looking very good either. I’ve been trying not to just let things pile up bit by bit, but it’s hard.

Last night, I got a little surge of energy and did dishes AND laundry. What? I know! It was amazing! I wonder what caused it? I would love to have more days like that.

My dishwasher doesn't have a dry cycle, so I open it to air dry.

Inferno

Yesterday in church was “Childrens’ Sunday” – the lower grades sang and read prayers and Bible readings. It was cute. I sing in the chapel praise band, so I was in front leading the songs yesterday. There are some motions. I am naturally a little awkward when it comes to motion songs, but when I’m in front of kids, it’s very different, and I get carried away. It was fun.

After church was the usual weeping and gnashing of teeth as I did paperwork in my classroom. I’m thinking maybe I should try doing it on Saturday next weekend.

On my way home, I stopped at Target for some peanut butter. I also bought some wine on impulse. It was Apothic brand. I like Apothic Red. This was one called “Inferno”. I had a glass when I got home. I didn’t like it as much as the other kind.

Beth sent the cricket picture.  It was sitting there already, so I turned it toward the camera.
