Workout was good today, Missus has been going with me again in the afternoons. The WOD paired people off again, so we got teamed up. Worked out well. Not too strenuous, but a good sweat.

Was composing a 7points post and accidentally hit a link, lost all five points that I'd made.

Don't think I've got the mental energy to dig them back out of the gray matter.

Time like this that content saver for forms that somebody mentioned might have come in handy.

1. Had intended to go to the office today, but things ran late. And I didn't want to miss my nap.

2. I do so like working from home. Just not enough room to fit all my reference works.

3. Eventually, I may have to move the office home, since we've lost a lot of income over the past year, and even further back. I think I can hang on to it until the end of the year.

4. Working from home has a disadvantage: After a while, the Missus is ready to be rid of me. And I sometimes get a stirring to get out.

5. Working from home saves time and money, wear and tear on auto. And the food is better.

6. A verse of mine:
How small from heaven must seem a man's concerns,
And petty under the sun the knowledge he learns!


7. A verse of God's: "As for me, I will sing about your strength; I will praise your loyal love in the morning. For you are my refuge and my place of shelter when I face trouble" Psalm 59.16 NET.

Wondering if I ought to let my POBox go at the end of the year. Hardly ever use it anymore. We changed from the main post office downtown to a franchised branch, but it's gotten as bad for parking as the former. One problem to using our home address is that the street name is quite long, six words long. POBox also provides, maybe, a bit of protection for the home addy, reckon? Then there's also the fee ...

Rather pleased with the prayer posted earlier this evening. And with the site update to the ministry site.

(For some reason, function to insert web link isn't working in Brave. Did it manually.)

Productive day so far, but I think the ideas and flow of words are about to slow down. We'll see ...

Missus and I walked on track around new park back behind our neighborhood. Quite nice, if not finished yet. New mayor, different political party, other priorities, all that. Got there as sun was disappearing from view, good time, cooler air. Will be a good option for days when we're not lifting weights and doing burpees.

I believe I successfully cloned this account to somewhere, but I don't remember where. Hmm. Oh, well.

Lesson: Old people should write everything down.

Ingredients for Fresh Tomato Sauce

4 medium to large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 large garlic clove, minced (2 teaspoons)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, or 2 teaspoons dried
1/8 cup chopped oregano, or 1 teaspoon dried
1/2 teaspoon salt
Ground pepper to taste
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Instructions

Combine tomatoes, garlic, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

Ingredients for Ground Beef

1 pound ground beef
2 large garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Mix ground beef, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook over medium heat until browned.

Zucchini Spaghetti Ingredients

2 large zucchini

Instructions

Using a noodle cutter, make the zucchini noodles. Cook for 5 minutes in boiling salted water. Drain the water.
Add the ground beef and the fresh tomato sauce.  Serve with buttered bread.

This is my wife's original recipe. We had it today for lunch, and I liked it so much, asked her to share the recipe. Am repeating it here with photo and separate from the recipe thread, in order to share with others.

Our butcher grinds the beef, allows the customer to choose the preferred cut. The wife chose patinho. (Brazilians cut the beef differently, so don't ask me what it is in English.) In the photo is the tad that was left over from lunch. I forgot to shoot a photo of the plate.

Bruised my palm at CrossFit today, trying to imitate the trainer with the thumb under the fingers to secure the hand on the bar better. I must have done it wrong. I think it shifted all the weight to the palm under the ring finger and caused the bruise. I still did some weight lifting and a tad of rope climbing, but could tell it was tender. There's always next time.

um meu amigo italiano chegou aqui em casa (ferias no Brasil) outro dia, com um smartphone um pouco menor do que o meu (que não é essa coisa toda), bom, o 'bichinho' cheio de problemas, super lento e tal, e ele quase no desespero ( é o primeiro smartphone dele)...
"olha  meu amigo, vou te contar um segredo: essas coisas aqui tipo o whatsapp e esses programinhas do google, que rodam o tempo todo, é exatamente essa M...A que está atrapalhando e complicando a vida do seu "bichinho". Se vc não dar um jeito nisso as coisas não vão melhorar....."

Moral da historia: não sei mais se essa -tecnologia- está de facto ajudando  ou atrapalhando mais a nossa vida :-D

Então, meu cel é ainda do tipo fliptop, lá do Séc. XX, hehe. Nada de internet ou app.

Sabe, li a respeito de um CEO que recusa a ter cellfone. Não é má ideia não.

Ecclesiastes says there's a right time for everything, including "a time to throw away" Eccl 3.6. I may be at that time.
