I knocked off for a while this evening and made some two-bone pork chops that I had cut off a roast and froze, and some artichokes that I steamed in my instant pot. They were delicious. I like taking time off to cook when I am intensely studying. Cooking has always been a relaxing and satisfying exercise for me.
I had music on for most of the day in the background. I played an album called Wyatt at the Coyote Palace by Kristin Hersh a couple of times through, and am not listening to it once again, intently. It's my new favorite album.
