I've got nothing

Not much going on here so I'm just going to babble at you for a bit.  Some random stream of consciousness stuff.  Hmm... Where to start....
I've been starting to work on becoming 'zombie ready'.  I've been using the elliptical every night after work.  I also need to work on upper body strength- not that I'm a weakling- I'm still amazed at myself when I am pulling groceries out of the trunk of the car that I can hold two gallons of milk in one hand and use that hand (jugs and all) to reach up and close the trunk.  So I guess that's not too shabby.
I'll admit it,  I was hesitant about that last post about zombies.  I almost didn't post it and I'm thrilled about some of your comments.   I'm so glad that you all don't think I'm totally crazy (or maybe you do and are just too nice to mention it, LOL).  But really, what it amounts to is finding what I can use to motivate myself to move more and get healthier.  And if zombies work for right now, I'll go for it.  I do know I need to make changes for my health and energy level. Of course, I kind of like the idea of being "zombie ready".  To me that means I'm ready for just about anything that life throws at me.  Because... zombies... really??  If I can handle that, I can handle anything.
Other than that, nothing much is going on.  It's still the dark of winter and too early to start seeds, work has been hectic, sourdough starter is working it's magic while resting in the fridge and the children have been busy with school.  Just life.
I've been researching sourdough pretzels, looking for a good recipe. I think that may be the next project with 'extra' starter.
A few of the hens are looking pretty scruffy. Of all things, they appear to be starting to moult... in February.  Go figure.  That would also explain the drop in egg production.  Hopefully, it won't suddenly get terribly frigid- I'd hate to have frozen chicken butts.
Ok, I've got nothing else.  I've been feeling a bit scattered for the past few days- having trouble focusing at times.  I think I either need more sleep, more caffeine or a combination of the two.

  1. Maybe we are all just a little nutty, we always refer to "Squirrel Attack" around the house but that's just because everyone else was saying zombie, it's all the same LOL! I am thinking about doing a yoga class at the local rec center here if I can get away from the kids that long, here's to us all being zombie ready!

  2. I work at the CDC and a few months ago they had a campaign to promote disaster preparedness. They used, you guessed it, zombies.

  6. I am really interested in the sourdough pretzels. Can't wait to hear how that goes for you. I made two loaves of extra-sour sourdough bread last night - and baked them too long! After two days of souring I overcooked them. Argh!

    1. I may try them tonight- I need to look to see how long they take. And Ugh- how sad about your bread. I hate it when I overbake and things are all dried out and overly crispy.
