The goings ons

We slept in until noon today, got up and watched some olympic downhill and then went for a long walk in the nearby suburbs. It was a gorgeous day, sunny but a very windy. It’s freaky how mild this winter has been, in that it is almost impossible to call it a winter. Barely a scrap of snow on the ground all year, and it was close to +10 degrees celcius today. I remeber Edmonton winters of my early childhood, or even back in the late 90’s being bitterly cold, and solidly so from December through February.

I was inspired by Willie’s scrumptious CR salad and meal photographs and so I attempted a salad for lunch that was fabulous. But it didn’t have the aesthetic appeal of Willie’s cullinary perfection, so I’ll spare you a photograph. I made on a large bed of baby greens and diced onion, blood orange, tomatoe, and avocado, with a light sprinkle of olive oil on top. It was damned tasty.

For dinner I forrayed into making a simple indian dahl dish (that’s lentils for those that don’t follow indian cuisine). It was good tasting, and quite good nutritionally, but I know there is a lot of room for improvement. Indian food is one of my favorites, and I didn’t even come close to the stuff I’ve had at restaurants, although part of that is probably that I used very little oil to kep the calories down.

Today I took my belt into the garage, got out some tools and made a new hole because even on the last hole, I could do a little wiggle and de-pants myself quite proficiently.

    Hi Aaron,
    Great blog – much enjoyed! I tried downloading your CRON-o-Meter, but I can’t seem to open it once downloaded.
    Being rather illiterate myself when it comes to computers, I thought you might be able to decipher the error message –
    "No JVM could be found on your system. Please deline EXE4J_JAVA_HOME to point to an installed JDK or JRE".
    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks very much,

    Sorry about that. My old posts about CRON-o-Meter had instructions on this, but I forgot to keep them with the current downloads. I’ll have to fix that soon.

    You just need to go and install Java on your computer. You can get it here:
