1 cup of boiling water
1/3 cup kosher salt
(stir until salt is dissolved)
5 smashed cloves of garlic
2 Tablespoons of dried dill
(or fresh, but I couldn't find it)
2 pounds of quartered cucumbers
Combine all ingredients with the saltwater. Try them after 4-12 hours. Refrigerate when they taste "pickle-ey." They will continue to pickle, but more slowly. YUM.
The whole not moving thing really disappointed me. I was looking forward to a new place with more light and room. But I do believe with my whole heart that there was a reason it all fell through. My garden, right? It is my peace and joy most days. Gay Boyfriend was so sad that I was thinking of moving. I had no idea until I told him I wasn't going. We are going shopping for a new toilet and shower surround tomorrow. He also has a countertop to mount in the kitchen for a "table" and extra baking room. I've missed baking. I've missed cooking, period. No counter space means not much freedom to cook.
I embarked on a clean and destroy mission since I decided to stay here. Washing walls, vacuuming for hours at a time, rearranging, polishing, washing windows, going through drawers and cabinets. I took every single picture and painting down and I'm going to replace them. All of them. New Life, once again. I have to do something, right?
I haven't written much lately. I don't like to write when I'm not well. But I think things are turning around in New Life world. I'm certain the coast is clear just yet, but it's better.
