Digital discarding...

I am reading the Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, which is about her life long fascination with discarding and organizing as well as a treatise on her method know as KonMari and in the spirit of her words, I just "discarded" from my Amazon wish list all the items I no longer need (and probably never needed) and the books I will never read (and shouldn't have made onto the list in the first place) and I already feel better and less cluttered.

The world wide web...

Today, I set-up a Yelp page for my business because a local solopreneur told me that she got the bulk of her clients through her business's Yelp page and when I signed up I saw that I could put up my 2 session special (now for back-to-school) as a "deal", so now I am putting me and my business out there.

I forgot....

I forgot to practice what I preach and didn't write down the sites I needed to visit on the internet and now I can only remember one of the two, which makes me more convinced of writing your to-do list at night for the next day.

Shop local....

I called car service to go to the bus terminal and got into an Uber (oops!) and the driver said he didn't speak good English which explains why "Port Authority Bus Terminal" wasn't understood, but with his GPS and the address I provided I made my bus and realized that shopping local has its benefits-- drivers that speak good English.

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a cookie sheet with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Wash and grate potatoes. Mix in eggs and flour. Form into large "meatballs" and flatten on cookie sheet. Brush tops with remaining olive oil. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Serve warm with apple sauce or sour cream. Makes 6 pancakes.

(P.S. These pancakes have been an excellent dessert this week.)
