I can’t quite believe it’s already 4:32. I’m finally done responding to all the feedback received and I’m so happy that’s behind me. I guess in a sense I did my daily ranting in the replies so it actually helped me accomplish two things: deal with my feedback backlog (redundancy unintended) and post my daily dose here. It was a chilly morning but it looks like it’s tamed down a bit since we’re in the mid-40s. Still cold but not deathly cold. (Can’t help but give out a sigh thinking about warm Manila.)
I’m almost done reading HARRY POTTER & THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE, and I’m thinking I’ll be able to start reading Bill Clinton’s MY LIFE by the weekend. (That’s IF I can get some reading done considering Alan is arriving from Paris Saturday evening!)
I feel I accomplished a lot more by repairing my favorite LET’S COOK WITH NORA cookbook which had gotten all tattered and scraggly due to the fact that it’s been used ever so often, since it has my favorite spaghetti sauce and my ever reliable Sukiyaki recipe. My JOY OF COOKING tome is also falling apart but that’s too thick a book for me to bind like I did this one. I had requested Mom to send me a copy during my second year here in the US, and even if I got a supposedly IMPROVED EDITION (according to the cover, that is), I still prefer her original copy which has better paper and picture quality.
Although this is all battered, it’s one of my most precious cookbooks, at par with the signed first edition cookbook of reknowned UK Chef Jamie Oliver (a.k.a. THE NAKED CHEF).
Okay, I’m all blogged out — and I want to get out of here early so I can see how Angel’s doing back home. Again, thanks to all who stopped by and visited. It’s nice to have this one-off conversations with our kababayans out there.
