Samhain Waning Thanksgiving Moon
All day today at the Sierra Club finishing up the first round of interviews for the new policy position. A bit much for me in terms of people interaction, though very interesting in terms of the people I met.
Afterward, I had to eat dinner in the city because we ended at 4:3o, the gut of rush hour. I knew I needed a good hour and a half, so I chose the Red Stag, a full sit-down meal with dessert. The Red Stag serves local beef, lamb, vegetables and I imagine, fish, though I don’t know that for sure. The food is excellent. I had the grilled lamb on chopped leeks with carrots and kale. Following through on my decision to eat more vegetables and fruit, I have also chosen to eat only half of what I would have normally of the entree. That means I have a small box of lamb and leeks with one whole carrot of the six on the plate in the fridge.
This time I made it up the driveway with no problem thanks to the quarry derived granite grit I put on the slope yesterday. The night has turned colder, heading down perhaps below 10 degrees by tonight. 9 degrees Acuweather describes as extreme cold; 4 degrees, predicted for tomorrow night is extremely cold. These folks are not from here.
