Now You Don't

Now You Don't. 

As in "now you see me, now you don't." Also known as the disappearing act that cost me 24 hours of my life. Hours I'll never get back again. Hours I'd never want to repeat. And yet, this was not the first time . . . So you could also call my recent predicament "fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, learn your lesson, fool.

Let me just say here that I'm kinda used to things disappearing. You may be aware of the fact that I bake. A lot. If you didn't know that, you don't read this blog enough. 
But I do bake a lot. As I've said, it started when the boys were little. I'd bake snacks for them and whatever friends were coming home from school with them. It got to the point where an awful lot of kids were coming home from school with them, and even more in the neighborhood would find themselves here too. Coincidentally, right around snack time. I used to joke that when something chocolate was baking, I'd get overpowered somewhere between taking it out of the oven and attempting to get it onto the counter. Let baked goods cool? Who needs chocolate to be cool? 
I considered myself lucky if I got a picture for the blog and a taste to see if the recipe was a success. Or if I agreed that the recipe was a success. Turns out kids will eat anything baked. There were times when I wondered what they'd do if I put crickets in the batter. Or if they'd even know.
Friends would see the pictures of some of those baked treats and (jokingly) ask me to deliver. My answer was always that they were welcome to stop by the house when I was baking, but I also always suggested they wear a helmet.
Truth is, the safest way for me to even get a taste of a new dessert attempt, I'd learned, was to make something cold. Yes, they love the no bake treats, but I'd have a chance to at least get a taste while they were looking in the empty oven.

Layered Tropical Jello

Now a blog post, for me, is very labor intensive. I write the post itself and I always design my own graphic to go with it. I develop a new recipe, try it out (sometimes more than once if it needs tweaking), take about 30 pictures, choose the best two, edit them, add the wording . . . it's a lengthy process. So there's a big difference between the food, once photographed, disappearing into mouths, and those pictures of the food disappearing.
Years ago, I looked at my Google pictures account and saw thousands of pics. For some reason, they were storing about 10 versions of each blog food pic, all of the graphics, as well as my personal pictures. I didn't need to keep anything but the personal pics, all the rest were already on my blog and I also keep a copy in a Word Picture file.
So I deleted many of them. And they deleted off of my blog. All over many of my blog posts were big white squares with a grey oval inside with a line through it in place of my pictures. I was freaked out, heartbroken, furious, and frustrated. I had to upload hundreds of pics back into my blog posts.
You'd think the trauma would stop me from ever deleting a picture from my Google account again. If only it had.
Google had stopped, back in 2019 when they closed down their Google + platform, storing all of my blog pictures in my Google photos account. So when Google announced that at the beginning of this month they would start charging for storage of photos over a certain amount, I went back into my Google photos. Nothing new was in there that I hadn't taken with my cell phone. But there were still thousands and thousands of old blog pics. Surely I could get rid of them now, Google doesn't seem to be backing up blog pics in this way anymore. Right? 

So I did. Delete them. I did a few, checked my blog, all looked well, so I went on, deleted tens of thousands of them before I got tired of doing it.

Guess what I saw when I went to my old blog posts the next day. Bet you know.

Act two of the great blog picture disappearing show. Now you see me, now you don't.

It took me 24 hours over 3 days to get all of the pictures back into my blog posts. Ten hours the first day, 9 hours the second day and 5 hours the third. That's about 23,040 breaths worth of time. It was grueling, frustrating, mind numbing work. And my ass is sore. Probably for life.

And I will never, I mean NEVER delete another picture from my Google photo account again. In fact, I'm having it put in my will, no one gets a penny unless they agree to leave my Google pics alone. 
In perpetuity.

Mindfield: Obstacles Poetry


Everything Seasoning Chicken. Everything isn’t just for bagels! | Recipe developed by www.BakingInATornado.com | #recipe #dinner

Last Friday of the month is for
Monthly Poetry Group to rhyme.
Diane and I take turns to pick,
"Obstacles," the theme this time.
As usual, today I'll try,
a poem to write . . . or fudge.
Whether I'm successful or not,
you get to be the judge.

Obstacles, a monthly multi blogger poetry writing challenge based on a theme. | Graphic property of www.BakingInATornado.com | #poetry


"I think I can, I think I can,"
the little engine said.
"Must be optimistic 'bout
the obstacle ahead."
And ant, he knew that he could do
what others said he can't.
Move away that obstacle,
big green rubber tree plant. 

Great for inspiration but,
I'm (sadly) here to say,
sometimes math's what's needed to,
get you your own way.

Started on a day when I
didn't see it coming.
Started with a smile and then,
ended with me grumbling.
I'd not expected issues, which
is always when they come.
Should have stressed ahead of time, 
my "ward it off" rule of thumb. 
No, was not a recipe,
I know you expected that,
but with Covid, substitutions had
pretty much become "old hat."

Everything Seasoning Chicken
I'd run out to the store with just,
license, debit card, mask.
But why did I not take my purse?
I was rushing through my task.
'Twas a kitchen towel that pushed me
right over the edge.
Cotton, the way I like them,
no scalloping on the edge.
Picking up prescriptions was
when I saw them there,
kitchen towels, much needed,
mine had holes, even the spare.
"Ma'am, you cannot buy this,"
kid said at my turn in line,
"I think you're at the limit,
your card has been declined."
Not just embarrassed but afraid,
my bank account had been hacked!
Turns out it was my own mistake,
guess I'd forgotten how to subtract. 
Didn't replenish bank account,
I thought that I had plenty, 
but the mortgage had just debited,
and I only subtracted one twenty?

Took away one hundred when,
one thousand was the price.
Just like when you're building, guess,
need to check my numbers thrice.
An uphill climb? Rubber plant to push? 
Nothing as difficult as that.
My obstacle? Old lady brain.
Got a cure for this old bat?

Stupid Guy Things


Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie, an easy to assemble family favorite summertime dessert. | Recipe developed by www.BakingInATornado.com | #recipe #dessert


Today is officially National Stupid Guy Thing Day. Yes, it really is. Google it (I did).

It shouldn't surprise you to hear that National Stupid Guy Thing Day was created by a guy. Two actually. It would take a man (or two) to think that there should only be one day dedicated to these little lapses incidents. Optimistic or unrealistic as those 2 men may be, these occurrences are common, not phenomenon. I should know, I celebrate endure live it. Daily. That's, I guess, what happens when you spend 20 years being the only woman living with 3 males. And it's not only adult men, it seems boys get plenty of practice basically from birth. Must be a trait that's passed along in the "Y" chromosome. Something scientists should maybe look into as, it's become clear, stupid guy things have a cause-and-effect relationship to female sanity (pro and con). I would know. 
Today I'm celebrating the not particularly clearly thought out, frequently mind-boggling actions of my male family members. Why celebrate? Because (back to the mental health thing) those stupid guy things are both a blessing and a curse.

National Stupid Guy Thing Day | Graphic designed by, featured on, and property of www.BakingInATornado.com | #MyGraphics #humor

Withstanding the stupid guy things curse:
Hubs being supportive: When the boys were little they would complain if they didn't like what was for dinner. I kept trying, but any meal that didn't meet their approval, I'd hear about it. Hubs generally ignored the situation, often infuriating me as I'd like a little support (and once made the mistake of telling him so). The next time they complained, he angrily expressed his support for the cook by saying "that's enough. I eat plenty of dinners around here that I don't like and you don't hear me complaining."
Hubs being handy: Often when we buy furniture that requires home assembly, we do it together. It works out best that way. We had purchased a desk and apparently Hubs decided to assemble it himself. He was so proud as he had me come see. On closer inspection, something looked off. Ends up he'd glued the trim on backwards, unfinished side out.

Hubs being helpful: I was out of town. After explaining to him on the phone 147 times (that may be a small exaggeration) how to open the tab in our dishwasher to add the detergent, Hubs finally just gave up and washed the dishes without it.

Hubs being nurturing: I was sick, very sick with the flu. I really, really needed to do laundry but just couldn't get up. Hubs reassured me that there was no reason to wash the clothes, I was just too sick and I shouldn't worry about it. I thought that meant that he'd do them. Turns out it meant that the laundry could wait until I was feeling better.
And counting the stupid guy things blessings.
~ They are the best excuse for indulging my chocolate addiction. I don't need an excuse, of course, but he provides them anyway.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie

~ They're easy fodder for the blog, a bottomless supply of inspiration. Seriously. Today included. Truth is, if you read my Fly on the Wall posts (you should, you know), you've been laughing along with me at these guy things for years.
~ And that leads me to the main reason I'm celebrating National Stupid Guy Thing Day, and it goes back to the impact on my sanity. Because through it all, these guys and their "do now, think later" approach to life keeps me laughing. And laughter is the best medicine. 
Well, laughter and chocolate.

They keep me laughing. I keep me in chocolate. It works.

At this moment, Hubs is outside rerouting the drain pipe from the in the basement. More than likely celebrating National Stupid Guy Thing day in yet another of his unique ways. Can't wait to see how this goes. I'm two floors up but perhaps I should put on a bathing suit, you know, just in case.
In the meantime, pass the Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie. No need to slice it, I'll just take the serving plate and a fork.

Happy National Stupid Guy Day, hope you get a chance to celebrate. With a laugh. And a pie.

Bird Watching and Day Drinking: Fly on the Wall

Peach Pie Coffee Cake, a breakfast cake with hints of peach pie. | Recipe developed by www.BakingInATornado.com | #recipe #bake



Welcome to a monthly Fly on the Wall group post. Today 4 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house. At the end of my post you’ll find links to this month’s other participants’ posts.




Proof that spending 17 months together 24/7 can make a couple capable of snipping at each other about pretty much anything. Even birds. And now that we're getting out again, we're starting to realize that particular acquired skill appears to be permanent. 
A recent dinner conversation: 
Hubs: Oh, look, a Yellow finch. That's the first one I've seen this spring. 
Me: I think I actually saw a Baltimore Oriole the other day. Is that possible? 
Hubs: It's possible. What did it look like?
Me: At first I thought it might be a Cardinal, but this bird had an orange breast that contrasted with a dark black head and wings.
Hubs: That's a Robin.
Me (rolling my eyes): And you saw a bat.
Hubs: A bat?
Me: Do you know what a bat looks like?
Hubs: Yes.
Me: Do you think I know what a Robin looks like?
Hubs: Fine, you saw an Oriole.
Me: And you saw a bat.

And I am NEVER letting that man retire.

I made the mistake of posting this on FB:

Day drinking and aging graphic | Graphic designed by and property of www.BakingInATornado.com | #MyGraphics #humor

I thought I was being (honest but) funny. Apparently Hubs took it too far. I was laying on the couch, awake but with my eyes closed when I overheard this conversation:
College Boy: Where's mom?
Hubs: She fell asleep on the couch.
College Boy: That's not like her.
Hubs: Yeah, she must have been day drinking again.

Me (popping my head up): What? Don't tell him that! Who else did you say that to?
Hubs: Well, your mom called a while ago . . .

College Boy comes up from the basement and I'm standing in the kitchen.

Me: Ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch.
College Boy: Are you OK?
Me (looking at him with one eye shut): Oh, I didn't hear you come up. Yes, I'm fine.
College Boy: What did you do?
Me: Nothing.
College Boy: Do you regularly stand in the kitchen with one eye shut saying "ouch?"
Me: No.
College Boy: What happened?
Me: Not telling you, you'll make fun of me.
College Boy: I'm not going to make fun of you if you're hurt.
Me: I'm OK. I was just peeling this orange and the juice squirted in my eye.
College Boy (said under his breath as he walks away rolling his eyes): Only you.

I guess that's his idea of not making fun of me.

Hubs walks into the room and I'm sitting at the kitchen counter with my laptop open, laughing.
Hubs: What's so funny?
Me: I was looking at this facebook post.
Hubs: What's it about?
Me: It asks if people passed their driving test the first time or had to take it again.
Hubs: You passed yours, didn't you?
Me: Kind of.
Hubs: What do you mean?
Me: Well, I passed the written part easily.
Hubs: And you didn't pass the driving part?
Me: I guess I did.
Hubs: You guess?
Me: Well, I'm pretty sure the guy passed me because he was afraid if I retook it he'd have to get into a car with me again. 
Hubs: Why do you think that?
Me: He jumped out of the car while it was still moving and ran into the building saying something about hoping I get more practice.
Hubs: Really?
Me: Yes and I've had an epiphany about my dad too.
Hubs: Your dad?
Me: Yes, when I got home from taking the test, there was a car he'd bought for me sitting in the driveway. I thought he was being so generous.
Hubs: He wasn't?
Me: Now I'm starting to think that he just wanted to be sure I never drove his.

It had been raining off and on for days, as it tends to do in the spring here in the Midwest.

Hubs: DO NOT let it rain overnight. The lawn is already soaked and I absolutely have to mow it tomorrow.
Me: OK, I'm on it.

Hubs is a heavy sleeper, even sleeps through the tornado sirens (yikes). I'm the opposite, if someone sneezes in the house next door, I wake up, so when we wake up the next morning:

Hubs: Did it rain last night?
Me: Yes, it sounded like it was pouring.
Hubs: You had one job . . .
Me: I know, and I failed. Clearly I shouldn't be expected to do any jobs.
Hubs: Right.
Me: So you should get the laundry going, before you start the coffee cake for breakfast.

Another day, and I was laughing at a facebook post again (I think I spend entirely too much time looking to facebook for amusement).
Me: Wow, I'm reading another one of those facebook posts and this one asks people to name the song that makes them think of growing up and their mom.
Hubs: Why "wow?"
Me: I'm trying to imagine what it must have been like growing up in this house.
Hubs: What house?
Me: Most people are naming sweet songs like "You are my Sunshine," songs like that. But this one person, I'm wondering what their upbringing was like.
Hubs: What song did they say reminded them of growing up with their mom?
Me: Livin' La Vida Loca.

Hubs had surgery a couple of days ago. It was just one component of an all around pretty crappy day. Watch for next month's Word Counters post, I'll be talking about the whole thing.

That evening I was talking to him about some of the things his surgeon had told me about his recovery.

Hubs: Don't mind me if you have to tell me things more than once, because of the anesthesia, I'm still a bit confused.
Me: You're a bit confused in the best of times.
Hubs (jokingly): Shut up.
Me: Are you sure that's how you want to talk to the keeper of the pain meds?
Hubs: Good point.

A little later:

Hubs: Where are you keeping my pain meds? I should probably have them with me in case I need them.
Me: Nice try.

Fly on the Wall, a multi-blogger writing challenge | developed and run by www.BakingInATornado.com | #MyGraphics

One of the things you need to do after surgery is to move around as much as you can to avoid blood clots. I reminded Hubs regularly that first day to just walk around a bit every hour or so.
Me: You need to walk. I know you're in a lot of pain and don't want to move around but it's important.
Hubs (starts moving): OK.
I notice that he's lifting his legs really high and I start to laugh.
Me: You realize you only have to walk, no one said you had to march.
Hubs: You're laughing at me? Are you going to torture me during this whole recovery?
Me: That's the plan.

Later that day he had been in the basement, came up to the main floor, then headed to the stairs to the bedrooms. 
Me: Are you OK?
Hubs (starting up the stairs): Yes.
Me: Are you going to bed?
Hubs (half way up the stairs): No, I'm getting my wallet.
Me: Your wallet?
Hubs (from upstairs): It's cold in the basement.
Me: And your wallet will keep you warm?
No answer. I'm pretty sure he knows that the gas fireplace down there is already paid for. But if he leaves some money on the mantle, I guess I won't complain.

I wasn't sure what his appetite would be that first night or at what time he'd want to eat so I planned warm roasted pork sandwiches with rice and fruit, figuring I could make it quickly when he was ready to eat. He had a good breakfast but only had a snack for lunch. When I asked, he said he just wanted one sandwich for dinner. While he was eating dinner:
Me: Good thing I made 2 sandwiches, I made the second one just in case.
Hubs: Yeah, I told you I wanted 2 because I didn't end up eating any lunch.
Me: No, you told me you only wanted one. I made 2.
Hubs: Oh.
And the next morning he wakes up and comes into the kitchen with his mask in his hand.
Me: That's OK, we don't require a mask to get coffee here . . .

I know I'll probably go to hell for saying this, but turns out I'm really enjoying Hubs on drugs. I haven't laughed this much in a long time.
