Three years ago I started making Corned Beef and Cabbage around St Pattys day.  I had just moved into this Canyon Cottage and Jake was home for his Spring break which always fall this week.  So I decided to have a gathering and made 2 large corned beefs and all the trimmings.  There was not a dot of food left that first time! We are not Irish by the way, it’s just good eats, and easy too.  This morning I tried a new recipe. You add 2 bottles of ale and a half cup of Irish whiskey.  It supposed to be braised in the oven, but I put it in the crock pot.  Side dishes are braised cabbage with apples, potatos and roasted carrots. I want to go down to town as today is the Wysteria Festival. If you google it you will know what it’s all about. We who live here call it the Hysteria Festival for various reasons. The town becomes jammed with buses who come from all over to see “the vine”. I just like walking to town and seeing all the craft vendors, its been a while since I have done that. Usually there are the better artisans and not your outhouse toilet paper roll types.

I started yoga, and have been going 3 times a week. I feel soo much better!  Its so much better for me than therapy, it makes me focus and relax, more body aware and I feel the movements and stretches in the soreness.  Work has been really busy and with the evening classes I usually don’t get home before 8 a couple nights, that is going to take some getting used to for me and the dogs.  But now with the time change it will be easier.

The bathroom demo started last Friday.  I took some photos and will keep a record of the progress to share.
