Well, we did it!
We pretty much did absolutely nothing again today. We didn’t even leave the rig. Nice!
This was fine with me as I’ve been fighting off a low-level cold for the last few days. Just nasal congestion, no cough, no sore throat, nothing else. And for feeling under the weather, what could be better than chicken soup?
Well, Chicken Tortilla Soup, anyway. I shredded a couple of the chicken breasts I had poached a few days ago, put them in the slow cooker along with some of the liquid from the poaching, and another container of chicken stock. After it started getting warm, I added containers of Monterey’s salsa and pico de gallo, along with some extra cilantro.
Then it was off for a very nice nap. It’s been a cold, dreary day here. I don’t think it even got out of the 40’s. You’d almost think Nick was in the area. But just perfect for a good nap.
Up a little after 4 pm, I dished out the soup, added some shredded Monterey Jack cheese and crumbled tortilla chips, and we sat down to some delicious Chicken Tortilla Soup.
Later, Jan made some fantastic Baked Kale by taking fresh kale, spraying it lightly with olive oil, sprinkling it with salt, and then baking it in the convection for about 10 minutes. It comes out crispy, crunchy, and delicious.
I got my yearly blog report from WordPress today and it was a real eye-opener.
In 2010 we had 56,000 visitors to the blog. And last year we had 133,000.
But this year we jumped to 174,000 visitors with them coming from 144 different countries.
And still no one from Antarctica. I had visitors from the other six continents, just not Antarctica. I keep hoping that someone down there at one of the research stations would check in sometime. Just once, OK?
For some reason I had only 147 visitors from Mexico, but 233 from Brazil. And 2 from China and 1 from Nepal. Nepal?
We also had 62 from South Korea, but 0 from North Korea.
Hey, just because your country is an oppressive dictatorship, doesn’t mean you can’t check in once in a while.
Thought for the Day:
Violence is rarely the answer. But when it is, it’s the only answer.
