Hi. Past 9pm.
I will turn in relatively soon. I am still coughing a lot, but it pales before Patricia's lung lunges. She remains off work. We are hoping that maybe she can return to work on Wednesday, but we are not taking bets.
When I got home from work today, Patricia had cut up some veggies in anticipation of preparing a stir fry. I ended up cooking the strips of beef, and supervised the cooking of the rice. After the meat was cooked, which only took a few minutes because you don't want to overcook beef strips either, I put the beef in a container to rest before cooking the veggies. When they were about done, I added the beef and the sauce for a few minutes. Then, we had a delicious beef stirfry for dinner. Better than any restaurant. Why eat out, spending all that $, when you can stay in and have a very good meal using ingredients already in the house?
Why, I ask?
I exchanged another email with crime fiction writer Jas. R. Petrin. He gave me some insights into his writing process. I very much look forward to meeting with him when the weather improves, and after I have read all of the Petrin stories I have in my collection. I really think that you guys will enjoy reading about him, even if you haven't read any of his fine stories.
I think I will conclude my evening by reading a Petrin story. You guys have a good evening, and I will talk at ya tomorrow.
