This post comes in three parts  
Part one: Kickboxing!

Hear this, lame-ass self-doubting inner voice of doom and disparagement! I went to class twice this week. That's right: twice. That may not be terribly impressive, but it's twice more than I went last week, or the week before, and so on and so on back through the past few months. And I taught thrice, so there was a bit more of a workout as well.

There was also an attempt - not always successful - to eat healthier. Smaller portions were consumed (except for last night, but hey: Harpoon Bay doesn't reopen every day! and the wine was very good, and the dessert was utter happy). My pants may be a bit snug, but I haven't yet had to bump up a size. All good things.

Part two: food!

I've got chicken, lentil and veggie stew in the oven. Chicken and white bean chili is in the crockpot. Tomorrow I'll cook up some cream of tomato soup (just didn't get to it today) and maybe - MAYBE! - attempt bread. Some of you on my flist will laugh at my fear of baking bread, but all earlier attempts have ended in tears. There's a recipe for spinach dahl I've been wanting to try forever. I expect that'll be Wednesday's dinner. Must stop at TJs for naan. I'm too lame to even think of making that myself.

Part three: kitties!

Zinda, on occasion, likes to curl up with me while I'm at the computer. She comes trotting over, all kittenish mewing and breathy purrs, and settles herself onto my lap. After a half an hour or so, she remembers that her default setting is 'naughty biting cat who loves Don best,' and balance is restored to the world.

Now we have Esme to consider. Esme loves me. She loves Zinda. The two of us together are, clearly, too great to resist. Now, I'm not a small girl by any means, but Zee's at least ten pounds and Esme has to be around six. I only have so much lap, kitties!

Esme doesn't care. She'll be happy any old way. She clambered up and draped herself over Zee.

"... the hell?" Zinda asks.


"You do realize you'll pay for this later, right?"


"Hmpf," Zee says. "Maybe it's not so bad."

"Camera! Mom! HIIII!" says Esme."


"zzzzzzz," says Zinda.

"zzzzzzz!!!" says Esme.

OMG So cute. My kitty only ever sits on me when she wants to eat.

Could I get the recipe for the chicken and white bean chili?

okay... I posted it in a separate entry. If you need any adjustments or clarification (I know I'm a bit scattered, so...) do but let me know!
