I wish

I wish I had something to tell you, but I really don’t.

I made this butternut quinoa gratin for dinner the other night, and it wasn’t as good as it could have been. I meant to throw in some spinach, but forgot, and I wish I had. It wasn’t terrible, just not insanely delicious, which is what I’d been hoping for.

It’s a co-worker’s birthday and I’ve brought in some very attractive little pink and red sprinkled butter cookies. I’m a little bit excited about eating them.

On Jeanne’s recommendation I’m reading Gone-Away World (which keeps reminding me of a book I vaguely remember called Gone-Away Lake, which might, in fact, be kind of similar.) It took me about 100 pages or so, but I am liking it kind of a lot. I borrowed it as an ebook from the library, which was also pretty exciting. I’m wondering how it’s going to return itself.

Ho hum.

  1. Ron tried to comment on this earlier, to say that the Enright Gone-Away Lake was one of his favorite books as a child. We’re laughing at the thought that it’s like The Gone-Away World in much but title.

    • I can’t really remember it all that well, but doesn’t it involve an old couple living in a sort of deserted town on a lake (sort of like the post-apocalyptic landscape of GAW?) — perhaps not.
