Sleeping in Church/Super Moon/Smashing Cheese
Sleeping in Church
I visited another parish this morning - not my regular home, but a place where I like and care for many of the people.
But, "oh dear" I twice drifted off to sleep during the sermon.
This had little to so with the sermon. It has to so with my continuing problem of intense sleepiness throughout the day.
A couple of my Doctors think that this sleepiness is rooted in sleep-apnea. I am not so sure. I use the CPAP machine on a regular basis. Its programme records very low levels of apnea.
So I will be back to my Primary Care Physician soon (after submitting blood for testing) - then she and I will try to figure out why I frequently fall asleep at the drop of a hat (and mostly when no hat is in sight).
The internet (at least in North America) is filled with the "news" that we should expect another "super-moon" tonight.
I am certain that tomorrow my Facebook page will be filled with photo's of the big and gorgeous moon.
My response is BLEAH.
Many damn fools with internet access and a decent camera will post pictures of the super-moon as if they alone knew about it.
Excuse my cynicism, but I will not have the slightest interest in these photo's. I want to see it for myself.
Thus, I'll be happy to take my own gander at this moon if our Floridian clouds allow, but I also wish that I could have a sense of awe and wonder not because "the internet told me so", but because I encountered it all by myself.
I confess that I wanted to alliterate, hence my use of the British/English word Smashing rather than repeating the word Super. That being said, here is another confession.
The very expensive Springbrook Farms Reading VT made cheese which I bought a few days ago at Whole Foods is so utterly good. It is a worthy substitute for the now unavailable but gorgeous French "Morbier", but it is very expensive.
My confession is that I bought some more today.
I bought just under half a pound @ $15.99 per pound. Damn, that is expensive!
But this "Vermont made unpasteurized cows milk cheese" is so utterly delicious that I abandoned all thoughts of frugality, and splurged without shame.
I will try to use it on special occasions rather than eating it as a "snack cheese". (Fat chance!).
If my American cheese loving friends find that their taste buds are being teased (and they should be) I can tell you no more than that this cheese is available at Whole Foods with no special name - it is marketed by Whole Foods under the label "Springbrook Farms Reading".
I hope that my splurge will bring some benefit to the hard-working Dairy farmers of Vermont.
