Have I really not posted here since December?

Yep. I really did not post here since December.
I also really just stood in the kitchen and ate cold leftover fresh (not dried) ramen noodles with tiny chicken meatballs in a broth flavored with garlic, ginger, and lemon. With Scallions and Shitake mushrooms.
Above is the original dish when it was hot.
Last night.

For those of you catching up, I have a pregnant daughter who has moved into my apartment, due in the middle of August. She is doing well and likes to eat. That is a good thing.
Here are some daughter eating well photos for your enjoyment.
Only for enjoyment! She is toned and looks great and walks and works a physically demanding job.
Please do not misunderstand me goofing on her eating!

In other news, I am very unhappy at my low paying retail job that I took to pay the rent.
Working 6 days a week to pay the rent interferes with looking for more productive work.

In the meantime, I have met some new people and have some projects up my sleeve.
On my one day off, I like to go over here.

Flickr Black

Flickr! Do you hear us? Those groups and conversations are your beating heart!
A few of you know how much I love Flickr, and consider it my home base.
There are changes proposed that make it hard for groups to function, hard to converse, hard to get around, hard to share and play games in the neighborhood.
We have written specific feedback to the proposed changes, but feel a wall of silence about many of them.
The Black is to get their attention.
So. You will not be getting any poorly lit muffins or random musing from me on the 8th. Will they miss me? I think not.
But if there are a lot of us, they might notice.

Veteran's Day 2013.

Good Morning! It is Veteran's Day. Made apple pie with cranberries.

I knew from the way that drip was hanging while the pie cooled that it 
was going to turn out OK. Delish. 
Apple pie and cranberries seems a festive way to celebrate this American holiday!
Here is an older picture, about remembering.
With ♥ for the men and women who have served.
