In case of happiness...

Tonight I am in possession of a serious dose of sense and sensibility, and I am glad of that, because last night I was full of piss and vinegar. I think I remember several people mentioning the full moon these past couple of days, and maybe that influenced my mind, although I am not claiming to be a lunatic by any means. I don't know if my behavior is influenced by the state of the moon the way ebb and high tide are, and I tend to think that these are old wives' tales that are told. The statistics don't prove it anyway. For now I will believe that my silliness last night was just a chance occurrence.
I just poured the last glass of orange soft drink and think I should nurture it and not drink it so quickly, but as usual, I am very thirsty and can't get enough of it. It is really not such a horrible thing, because I have a full two liters of milk that are on their past due date and that I should drink as soon as possible before they go bad. I will willingly sacrifice myself and have tall glasses of it in a little while. I am not the milk drinker I used to be and had overestimated how much I should buy of it.
For dinner yesterday, I made pasta with a cream sauce and a whole basket of mushrooms, sliced and fried in butter with Italian herbs. Mushrooms are high in protein, so I figured that I didn't need a meat replacement. I will have the same meal tonight, because I have another basket of mushrooms and I don't want them to go bad. I didn't eat applesauce with this meal, because I didn't think that would be all that tasty, but the next time I eat potatoes and vegetables, I will. You can have too much of a good thing.
I can't wait to go grocery shopping again, but I am going to have to wait a few days, because I haven't run out of supplies yet. I am learning what is nutritious and what I like to eat and what is most filling too. I do know that I have an enormous appetite, but I have had that my whole life. I do enjoy eating and by that I don't mean eating snacks that spoil your appetite for dinner. Dinner is a holy meal that needs to be looked forward to and enjoyed completely, and you need an empty stomach to appreciate it.

I plan my meals carefully and always look forward to them. Gnocchi for lunch. Yum.
