Once Upon a Time in Pint Lala 3

Leave a comment

1. On this beautiful fall day, my body is telling me to kick back, rest and try to get over this runny nose, itchy throat and stuffed up sinuses. The flow is definitely about rest and I’m going with the flow.

2. Recently I went for a drive to gather supplies. I passed a Koch Foods processing plant. I thought it looked cool with the bright blue sky.

“Heroes work here!”

3. Next door to the RV park the local water company is drilling a deep well to cover future expansions.

Not much happening the last few days. I went to Dollar General to score some supplies. It was new one and the first DG I’ve been in that sold minimal produce. I got some bananas. I like bananas.

I wandered back to Alabama Safari Park. It was fun. Oddly, I forgot my big camera.

A pesky lama blocking the way.
It was a beautiful day

I drove to the state liquor store in Hayneville AL. It’s the county seat of Lowndes County. It was closed.

Civil rights protesters were killed by the white minority.

Personal Notes

1. The early nights have changed my sleep schedule. It is not a bad thing, just a different thing. Change is good. It keeps my brain flexible. There is no point in clinging to what was. It’s like a river. What was is gone. What will be has not arrived. Here I am. Present. Digging it.

2. Snack time.

Miscellaneous herbivores at Alabama Safari Park.

3. I bought myself a kitchen appliance upgrade. I’m replacing my Instant Pot and slow cooker with one appliance, the Ninja Foodi Compact Tendercrisp Pressure Cooker. It bakes, steams and air fries too. I’ll try it out today. I think rice is a good test.

1. Om Mani Padme Hum

2. A magick spell. 😉 I don’t know but I’ve been told that uttering Greta Thunberg’s name three times over a vegan burger under a full moon at midnight causes an angry old white guy’s willy to fall off. Works best in Texas.

3. Things that make me feel inept.
I hate when I create my own disaster. I was defrosting the freezer and managed to get a hand towel wrapped up in the ice maker mechanism. I got out what I could. Only time will tell if I killed the ice maker.

Ice maker update: I appear to have saved the ice maker. It is busily make ice again. 🏆

Second Try

My first attempt was too salty. The salt was over powering. I couldn’t even rinse enough salt off to make them eatable.

Day 0: This is the fresh 1/2 jar of potential pickles. Wish me luck 🍀.

I’m using English Cucumbers.
Day 1, Lots and lots of bubbles
Day 2: The tannin is adding a brownish tint. I did a taste test this day: not too salty, nice garlicky flavor, with a hint of dill.
Day 3: I took one out to taste.

The day 3 taste test results are in. I give the pickles 4.5 out of 5. It was yummy except for a hint of bitter. The taste medley is: cucumber, light salt, dill, and garlic with a hint of bitter peel. These are soft crisp. I’ll increase the tannin when I make another batch. Keepers! I put them in the fridge to slow the fermentation process and so I can try one chilled.

The only “off” thing was some white mold I found on a clove of garlic that had floated up and was protruding from the brine. I fished it out and tossed it into the trash.

Spiders in Paradise Part 2

Lots of fog and moisture this morning.

QOTD: You’re a weird living sculpture in God’s on-going f*cked up avant-garde installation theater project.

As such, you’re guaranteed to experience some form of exile and death, as that’s part of the f*cked up theater.

The spiders in Paradise.

QOTD: Meditation is a kind of medicine – its use is only for the time being. Once you have learned the quality, then you need not do any particular meditation; then the meditation has to spread all over your life. Walking is Zen, sitting is Zen. – Osho

I’m trying something new. Go me! Hopefully I’m fermenting cucumbers.

Day 1
Day 2
Day 2 lots of bubbles.
Day 3
Day 3 – I tasted one today. I think I added too much salt. It tasted better after I rinsed off the salt.
Day 4

These are too salty for me. I’ll try another batch using less salt. Other than the salt this was crisp, spicy and garlicky.

QOTD: Stay curious.

QOTD: “Western science and religion have differing views on how the universe was created, but they agree that it happened a long time ago.

The mystery schools of the West, on the other hand, assert that the universe is re-created anew in every moment through the divine erotic play of God and Goddess.” ~ Rob Brezsny
