I think I’ll go for a walk

I had to leave work early with an attack of nausea and all over body aches that left me wondering whether I was coming down with the flu. After four hours of sleep I felt a lot better, but it’ll definitely be touch and go for another few days.

I did have a good culinary adventure tonight: braised chicken with tomatoes and fennel. But that’s a story for another day.

Esta is alive, and living double rainbows

Esta found a minute to update her blog amid the hectic joy of starting classes at seminary (finally having Internet connectivity at her apartment might have something to do with it). She reports that she’s making friends, even if they do tend to be considerably younger than she is; that Julia Child’s recipe for baked cucumbers is as good as Julie Powell reports; and that updates on classes are forthcoming, including Hebrew I (I always wanted to be able to read Biblical Hebrew; now she’ll be living the dream! Sniff.). Hope she can keep posting.

And hey, Esta, if you haven’t discovered them yet, you might want to download NetNewsWire Lite and Manila Envelope. The former will make it MUCH easier to keep up with your weblog reading; the latter just might make it easier to post.
