Today's word of the day is concrete (kahn-KREET adjective - 1: naming a real thing or class of things ; 2: formed by coalition of particles into one solid mass ; 3: relating to or involving specific people, things, or actions rather than general ideas or qualities ; 4: relating to or made of concrete). Let's see if I can give a concrete example of how to use this word.
|sad, empty waterbed|
Last night when Carm came to bed he found the bed wet on his side. Sure enough... the waterbed had a leak. Now you may laugh to know that we still had a hippie waterbed, but honestly they are very comfortable. The heater warms the water in winter so you get into a toasty bed, in the summer we lower the heat to make the bed cool. Then there's the support of the mattress - it conforms to your every curve thus supporting you perfectly. Will we get another one to replace it - we aren't sure yet - spending several hours in the middle of the night and the freezing temperatures may colour our decision.
Supper tonight has been planned as a small cheat meal - I'll use a bit of olive oil to make the roasted vegetables, PLUS we'll drink a bottle of bubbles. I figure one cheat every week or two won't slow my progress too much as long as I don't overdo it.
My pleasures today: spending an hour in the afternoon curled up with a book after a late night. Today it's "Dave Berry Turns 50". I find his writing cracks me up ; bubbles aka sparkling wine ; eating roasted vegetables. I only discovered this way of cooking vegetables recently and it was immediately one of my favorites .
