    My mom is an incredible cook. Very slowly, I’ve been trying to learn some of her recipes. Tonight, I made chana batata (chickpeas and potatoes) for dinner.

    Unclear. I was reading a math textbook today. It took me a few pages to realise that I didn’t retain any of what I was reading. The same thing happened last night when I was looking up the difference between “who” and “whom.”

    Somethings off. We watched Julie & Julia. It took us three sittings to watch it through. In the movie, Julie works her way through Julia Child’s cookbook in a year. She, Julie, blogs about it along the way, which brings her fame. A movie is eventually made about it.

    I haven’t been getting to the shop as much lately. The cold, even though this has been a rather mild winter, keeps me away, so too does the fatigue. I’ve just been tired lately. It hit me good when I got home this evening. I was completely spaced out.

    I was sweating a fair bit. Through the window, I could see naked men walking through the hallway from the change rooms to the showers, and then back again. Staring at the grain of the wood lining the walls, I was convinced it was cedar. I was sitting on the top-level bench in the sauna…

    I haven’t been getting to the shop as much lately. A friend I’ve made there called it my sanctuary. It is.

    Have I told you about our bread maker? If I have, my apologies for repeating myself.

    I had a feeling for the first time today. After this many years of living, I never would’ve guessed that I could experience a new feeling. It took me by surprise, and I didn’t act on it.

    I picked up my new table saw today. Hannah and I went to Home Depot to get it. As we were riding the elevator down to the car, she realised that I invited her along because I might be needing some help to carry it.

    Hannah told me that this puzzle won’t count as a Valentine’s Day present because it’s not a surprise. She told me to put a secret message on a puzzle and give that to her on the 14th. Apparently, I’ve been thinking about how to make this puzzle since New Year’s Eve. Since then, I’ve been…

    We’re reintroducing the cats. The plan is to get them comfortable with each other before the school year so that we’re not as worried while writing lesson plans, marking assignments, rearranging seating plans, drafting long-range plans, and preparing for the fall open house. Earlier in the summer, we had our first go at it and…
