How important it is to blanch (not only your almonds…;0)
but everything else in your life! Blanching instead
of just boiling, steaming or roasting or God
forbid frying ;0/ Blanching makes it stop
boiling inside (keeping as much good stuff in
as possible). So far the best way (that
seems to work for me;) is to crack a joke,
regardless of how hurt, angry or super sensitive I
feel at the time). And it doesn’t matter if it’s
not at all on the topic! I don’t
even have to
say it out loud. Sometimes I just say a joke in my mind. And even that seems to
do the trick! I guess there is a certain degree of
easement appears (like a smile;) in my eyes.
And sometimes I just can’t help myself but to
laughing, almost uncontrollably (almost being
the key word here;) and that normally
throws my opponent right off the track. But
not in a bad way as there is no malice one can detect in my
eyes or my laughter. I learned that
technique from one of my favourite elephants, who sometimes just
starts (and keeps on) laughing very loudly (no
matter what the subject of conversation
It used to piss me off sooo much but then I
learned that it actually does more good than
bad (for both parties;).
Sorry I kind of seem to be deviating from the original topic here. The reason being…I just felt like it;) No… actually, I’m taking back the “sorry” part! As it is my blog and I can write about… whatever I feel like writing about. But I do promise to go back to the original story line (at some point;)
I will be back soon! Stay safe and sane till then!
Love! E ;0)x
P.S. There is an amber weather warning’s been issued by the Met Office for the area where I live. That made me wonder about two things: Is it going to be serious? And why have they chosen amber to be associated with that threat? I think Amber is such a warm, soft and friendly colour, don’t you think?
Storm should really hit the ground running after midnight tonight but for now it almost feels like Christmas (minus the presents of course;). When everybody has stored some food to last a week and is planning to stay home for a while
