...Improve each shining hour...

I’m glad I have a job that permits me to work at home in this current situation.  However, I was a little surprised to find that the two hours a day that I am not commuting has disappeared immediately into a vortex of minor life maintenance activities.  I finally got to use my nice clean painting desk yesterday, with a start on two dozen Ral Partha medieval spearmen and crossbowmen to eventually be fielded as a fantasy civic militia, plus a couple of personalities to support them.  I hope to have them finished by the end of the weekend.

At least the food has been good.  I made a vat of ham and navy bean soup last night, enough for three meals for the two of us, and froze the leftovers for later.

I feel like soup needs some bread to go with it, so I made a batch of a quick soda bread (2 cups flour, 1 cup buttermilk, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, stir, knead lightly, bake at 350F for about 20 minutes).

On to today...

    1. It was/is. I just used a recipe from a net search for “instant pot ham and navy bean soup”, but I can’t tell at this point which site it came from. :(

  2. An interesting alternative to my usual tea biscuits.
