dexterpexter's Journal: Something Good 13

Journal by dexterpexter

It's that time again. Just like last time, I ask you:

Tell me something good.

Preference is that you tell me something good in your life, but if you want to just say something good in general, that is fine as well. I like to read about the good going on in people's lives.

I will go first:
-Geckofood's earlier entry inspired me tonight to make my own pizza. Although my pizza didn't look as wonderfully delicious as his, it was a hit.
(And, as a funny side note, in running down our missing, newly-purchased ingredients, we discovered that someone didn't check the bag of freezer food before putting it into the deepfreezer, and so I am now the proud owner of frozen produce, including one rock hard tomato. :)
-I am really loving life. My friends and family are in good health, I am in excellent health, and all of the things I worked hard for are coming to fruition. The weather is turning, and is proving to be nicer with each passing day.
-I have been able to relax in a way that I haven't since childhood, and everything is falling into place like it should.
-I have a renewed hobby/interest in photography that is going much better than I hoped for, and I am about to set up my own home art studio, something that I have wanted for years. Next is a new camera, but only after I find that perfect model that does everything I wish it to. So far, I haven't found it.
-I have been eating healthy food and sleeping better than I ever have. (For those unaware, I have strange sleeping habits, and used to rely fairly heavily on fast food.) I attribute to this (and lots of handwashing) my missing the bug that seemed to be hopping around to my various acquaintances.
-I have removed myself from my phone and IM again (although, to my buddies, I am still online occasionally), freeing up time to throw myself into other things like cooking, reading, and affection with my loved one. :) And to that end, here's signing off for the night.

    Good deal! I hope you had fun with the process?

    I won't tell you that I burned the last one I made...same recipe, slightly different toppings, but 1-2 minutes too long on the stone and it was past it's peak. :-/

  • Racing! The first race of the season starts on Saturday. This year I'm going to be driving two cars in two classes. This is something good. Also good is that a friend who had a crash at 160mph in testing the other week walked away without a scratch. I'm hoping to avoid findout out how I'd fare in the same situation...
  • + Carlos Pena was released by the Tigers
    + Mrs. RailGunner is doing well, only 5 1/2 months to go until delivery date
    + I have a chance to deploy Linux on a major project at work, due to Linux outperforming Windows by 33% on the task (and that's BEFORE a kernel recompile.. bwa ha ha ha)
    + My softball team finally won a game last thursday, we're now 1-3.
  • Well, it's springtime, and that means I get to play in the yard again.

    I've got some stuff to do around the house, which is nice, and I am also very close to working from home all the time instead of here at the office.

    That's really nice.

    Can't wait.

    I just finished getting beaten to a pulp by the dentist and now I'm in my office, with the guy next door having turned the volume on his teleconference up to 11.

    The good news -- it's a beautiful day outside!

  • my wife, family, and friends all love me.
  • Lisa's wonderful smile. A fresh outlook on a fresh day. Knowledge. Spartan simplicity. The early rays of dawn, and the late rays of dusk. :)

    I was looking for a good white-loaf recipe from him, but all I found were frou-frou breads. ;) I ended up going with the white recipe from the Cuisinart cookbook. And food is meant to taste good, not look good. See: Mexican food. :)

  • Running nose, but I'm listening to soft celtic music and sipping on Spanish coffee (dulce something).

    Sucks to be at work for 12 hours on Saturday, but there's always Slashdot and caffeine to chill it out. :-)

I'd rather be led to hell than managed to heavan.

Working...
