1. This time of year is difficult. Both my parents died around this time 12 years ago. Their deaths cast a pale over the holiday season that I have yet to shake off.

2. I am happy to announce my update to Xyborg Nomad 3.0. I got the Moderna booster recently.

This has been a priority for me. I wanted to receive the booster before I moved to a more rural setting where there is less access to vaccine sources and other purveyors of potions in general.

3. One nice thing about this time of year is that it’s eggnog in season. I love eggnog.

QOTD: “To be a hero means being the author of your own myth. “
~ Alberto Villoldo

In the moment we each chose our path. Yes, somethings are beyond our control. Even then we can choose our response. Each now contains a myriad of possibilities. We can make our routine, comfortable and often unexamined choice or we can select our equivalent to “the one less traveled”.

“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. ~ Robert Frost

Fermented Cucumbers

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.

Fermented Cucumbers

Leave a comment

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.

1. As the year of thinking different thoughts comes to a close my emphasis is changing. I will keep that practice and continue thinking different thoughts by letting go of old patterns and refreshing my mental landscape.

As I begin this year of living dangerously (as this spaceship ages the coming year is more dangerous) I challenge myself to live like I am dying (we all are), to be mindfully present, to not let fear run the show and to metaphorically suck the marrow from the bones of life.

2. NSFW Language: Karissac Some noteworthy advice.

3. I had a wonderful time visiting Rosemary Beach. It was a great road trip. It’s nice to be back at my rig.

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
