Poetry

my mind is a tornado
bits and pieces
fly every which way
no rhyme or reason
there’s just
an ocean of thoughts
brimming over
threatening to engulf me
smother me
i try to switch off
but no, i cant
try to sleep
not happening either
so i sit here
and stare
my heads in a spin
its like a whirlwind

Recipe-Yeast rolls

You Need:

  • 4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm milk (about 100 F to 110 F)
  • 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted, cooled to lukewarm)
  • Coconut oil(for brushing rolls after baking)

How to:

  1. Oil a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking dish.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the yeast with the warm milk. Let stand for two minutes.
  3. Add the flour, egg, salt, sugar, and melted butter. Using a dough hook, mix on low speed until combined. Increase the mixer speed to medium and continue to mix for 15 minutes, adding small amounts of extra flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking to the sides of the bowl.
  4. Form a ball and place in an oiled bowl. Cover with tea towel and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  5. Shape the dough into balls, about 1-1/2″ each. Place in large baking dish to make about two rows of four (8 rolls).
  6. Cover lightly with a clean dish towel and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  7. Heat the oven to 375 F.
  8. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.
  9. Brush with coconut oil.

Enjoy!

Random wednesday thoughts

so what can i say about today? well, mine started off bad. i woke with the worst headache ever, i think it was from dehydration, i drank tons and tons of water, that seemed to fix things and make it go away, along with taking a nice long walk around the park for a few laps. i really just felt like going back to bed, but i pushed on through, and i’m glad i did. i managed to work on my career preparation module, i put a resume together, it took me a long time, trying to remember all the dates and years of when i studied, not an easy task. did not realise i’d studied so much until i actually sat down to write the resume. i tried to do a little college work, i’m kinda stressing out, because i have a 2000 word book review due foe next week. the book i am reading is beautiful boy, by david shep, about his sons addiction to meth amphetamine. i have not started reading the book yet. i’ll start tomorrow. hoping to get it read by friday and do the review over the weekend. thats the plan anyways. ate some of the shepherds pie i cooked yesterday for lunch, one of the other girls in my class had some as well, i was trying to use up the left overs so i offered it to my class mates. after lunch me and nitro did the route to the bus stop. he did well today the only thing was he saw another dog and so got a little bit distracted. but he found the bus stop and got his treat, we got back just efore the rain started pouring, which was good. the rest of the afternoon session we just did our own thing, worked on more college stuff,. oh did i tell ou i passed my first module? well i did. digital media. i had my exam yesterday and i passed it and my portfolio. i was thrilled. after class today i went upstairs, called jess “for those who are new to my blog jess is my partner whose in IL, she’s currently in a psych residential facility. we talked and that was fun, she was doing well and had gotten the xmas package i sent her. then i talked to mom, she was going to my niece’s xmas play at her school tonight, i was kinda bummed that i had to miss it. i usually go to it every year. my cousin facebooked me to tell me that she got the xmas presents i sent, and to also tell me mine are on the way, yay presents, cuz who doesnt like presents. i’m also expecting a box from a good friend in the states, cant wait to get that either. tomorrow we’ll be having our xmas party here at abode, thats the name of the centre where my independent living programme is run. anyway there is a big slap up xmas meal, should be nice. then this coming weekend i need to finish up my xmas shopping, all i need to buy is my moms present and a few more bits for my sister. we are also going to go to a xmas market, we go every year, its so much fun. there are food stalls and a real christmasy atmosphere. well thats about it for now guys, hope all of you are having a fantastic wednesday.
Tell me what you did today?

I am so dehydrated today

i am a little worried today. i feel really dehydrated. i mean literally i am gasping, have been drinking a ton of water. cups and cups of it out of the water cooler. i had a headache this morning when i woke, i didnt know why. i told noelle and clodagh about it. they wanted me to talk to the nurse here but i didnt want to, because the nurses here make a huge deal out of everything, they’d have had probably wanted me to go to the doctor or something, when all i need to do is lie down for an hour. anyway, it turns out i didnt lie down at all, i just got some water and it went away on its own. i even did two laps around the park and i felt much better after a bit of fresh air. im not used to being dehydrated though. i am diabetic and i thought my sugars might be high because sometimes when they get high you can become dehydrated. i have no way of testing them though as i left my kit at home. i guess all i can do is keep drinking as i need to.
