I have done Useful Things today:

  • Found a phone plan that will cost me $20 less per month but get me higher-speed broadband.

  • Lugged (with S.'s help) a dead scanner, a dead printer, a dead keyboard, and a large box full of cables, wires, mice, drives, circuit boards, and things I couldn't even identify anymore to the local Electronics Recycling event.

  • Bought about $20 worth of grains, beans, and vegetables for this week's meals. I plan on trading in convenience for cost savings during my unemployment and will probably be cooking a lot of excruciatingly healthy simmer-for-an-hour vegetarian meals.

  • Started a loaf of Jeffrey Steingarten's 24-hour no-knead bread.

  • Started soybeans soaking for Martha Rose Shulman's wonderful vegetarian pâté de campagne. I buy Marmite wholly and solely so I can make this recipe, which I've been cooking since I was 20 and bought Martha Rose's first book. (She's a very good and strangely uncelebrated vegetarian food writer.)

  • Lolled about.

Lolling about is fantastic. :)

I just wish I found it easier to let go and just loll. I'm always thinking of more things I need to do before I can relax!
