8:33a faire season is coming up sooner rather than later. i’m so fucking excited. i need to get my table built so i can set up my sewing machine and make a new dress for this year. omg.
i’m going to do a linen dress, fingers crossed it will breathe well enough so i don’t die. gotta figure out an easy, filling menu for camp meals. gotta start setting aside money. gotta make sure i have enough in savings to fix up my truck if harvey happens again. it shouldn’t. i think this year might be a bit more quiet, despite the storms that spun up in the atlantic last week.
omg i need a dress form. fuck. i forgot.
9:11A found a dress form on deeeeeeeep discount. so that’s done. fuck, i forgot about the tent platform. i couldn’t find a plan for one that i’m thinking about. needs to be the follow:
* easy to get base material cut to size from home depot.
* can be broken down enough to fit in our storage unit. our tent is an 8’x10′. ugh. i need to get some free cad software so i can draft this asshole out.
* 5″ inches or so off the ground. gotta talk to jimmy about this one. worried he will trip and fall.
9:45a so i finally saw a doctor for my eczema on thursday. it took until saturday to get my perscription fixed so i was actually getting something i was covered for. doctors on demand’s customer support is pretty great. my feet are healing nicely. feels good.
3:53p i made a decent soup over the weekend. i think i found this on budget bytes and altered it a bit
2 tbsp olive oil
1 yellow onion
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp sweet paprika
— red chili flakes
salt & pepper
9.8 oz 1/4″ diced sweet potato (2 small)
8 oz chickpeas, soaked and skinned
1 (14.5oz) can diced tomatoes in juice
1 quart vegetable broth
next time i’m going to cook some lentils and mix it in. also considering making some rice pilaf with lentils to go with it instead of just mixing some in. idk yet.
