I tried water steam distilling rose petals Monday night. The principal configuration of doing it at home was demonstrated successfully, but the result was bitter. Nothing like steeping the rose petals in tea water. I imagine i will try drying the petals next, or layering them in sugar and trying to extract the essence that way.

I know some think Taco Bell is horrible food. It can be vegetarian, so it got some business from us in California. (I will admit that here in NC, the chain has been far more been disappointing.) Their cheese quesadillas are one quick snack i enjoy. Monday night i figured out how to easily replicate the creamy sauce with Russian dressing, hot sauce and cheese. It's not something i needed to learn to make, but it's mighty satisfying.

I have touched crochet while watching shows twice now. It's not a habit yet, but i would be happy to get back into doing a craft while sitting.

I've not been doing the yoga.

Black holes of negativity: Quakers this past weekend. I was cranky. (Perhaps i forgot to take my antidepressant on Sunday?) I want to focus on the good things. So i am also not reflecting heavily on displaced energy for work focus yesterday.
