I’m on hiatus from The Daily Special this week. I’m probably the only member of the crew not actually going on vacation, but I still have work responsibilities and columns to write. It’s nice though, not having to wear make-up. Yesterday was spent in domestic bliss, cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping. I don’t know why I find all that so cathartic, but alack, I do. Unfortunately my days of wandering around my apartment almost naked are over, tomorrow I get a sub-letter for the month of August. I’ve really enjoyed this month of solitude. Oh well.
Yesterday I made a chickpea, eggplant, potato stew. I’ve made it before but found it sort of bland so this time I added a lot more spice and quite a bit of hot sauce. Way better this time. Here’s a peak at what it looked like while all fresh in the crockpot:
Now for today:
I’m heading to a spin class after work, then I will take a last ceremonious naked stroll around my apartment before my privacy is interrupted tomorrow.
