perhaps all people do this but i notice omar and i work in waves and cycles. take cooking. i’ll be in a cycle of cooking and just as i hit the top of the wave and begin to come crashing down, never wanting to see a kitchen or a stove again, omar takes over and finds his own cooking wave.
and every so often we find ourselves in sync.
today we hopped on the indian food wave. he rocked the chicken tikka masala and i made naan. the naan is from the master recipe in artisan bread in five minutes a day. my goodness, this book is just about perfection.
and as for a reading wave/cycle. i fell into a slump for awhile. omar can’t seem to tear through books fast enough right now and me? i’m just now getting back into a groove. believe it or not it was ms. mary higgins clark to my rescue. can a book really be defined as a mystery when it is more on the contrived side and you’re able to figure it out quite early on? wanting something with a little more depth, i checked out iain pears’ stone’s fall. i should have known that when one description of the book i found was “global finance mystery” coupled with espionage and arms’ dealings this wasn’t going to be light reading. but it’s good. who knew i would want to stay up nights reading about attempted shareholder takeovers, socialist money funneling, and market manipulation?
i think our unemployment wave is about to crash down and that’s a good thing. but more about that soon…
