Cheerful blogging...

I don't know why I should be so cheerful, except for the fact that I had three cups of coffee and I think the caffeine has gone to my head and made me a bit high. It is a wonderful experience and I can recommend it to anyone. It is a cheap and safe way to feel real good, but I am going to switch to the orange soft drink now, because the coffee has made me awfully thirsty. That is the one drawback of it, and beside that, I do have to get a handle on myself.
You can't say that I don't like my little thrills in the middle of the night, but I do know when enough is enough and when I have to talk myself down off cloud number nine. Maybe there is nothing as irritating as someone who is relentlessly cheerful in the face of everything. It may be possible to be too optimistic.
There, I feel more normal now and I think I have landed on earth again. That was a quick trip into the outer atmosphere and back again at the speed of sound. It was fun while it lasted, but I am happy to be back. Thank goodness that these altered states are always only temporary and that I don't get stuck in them, because they would wear me out. The soft drink must have sobering effects, or maybe the caffeine has just stopped affecting my brain and is already leaving my system.
I had a wonderful dinner of leftovers last night and had applesauce with everything. Leftovers are always the nicest food to have, because the flavors have blended together and heated up, they taste the best. I now realize that applesauce is the condiment of my choice and mayonnaise and ketchup are not, because they upset my stomach. I will have to make sure that I always have a pot of applesauce in the refrigerator to add to any food I am eating, disgusting as that may sound. It is a Dutch thing and makes any food edible.
I have already started a new shopping list on the white board in the kitchen and every time I turn around, I am adding an item to it. The white board had gotten a bit hard to clean, so I got out some nail polish remover and a paper towel and they removed all the traces of old ink and got it sparkling clean again, so there is no need to go out and get a special cleaner.
I found a cooking website on which there are many innovative vegetarian recipes that I want to try when my American ex is here, because I do want to fix a variety of foods and make the experience as interesting as possible. I also found the recipes for making Nasi Goreng and Satay Sauce the authentic way and I am going to try them. I may turn into the kitchen princess I used to be yet.

I like applesauce as a condiment. Haven't had any in ages, though I used to make my own.

We still have jars of applesauce from last fall that I canned--I must be more Dutch than I thought! Ha ha!
Isn't it a good feeling to get something really clean again?

I love leftovers (providing that the food is something I liked in the first place), especially sprinkled with grated cheese.
