The Old Guy … Realization …

Realization
.

I have never thought of myself,

As an old man,

With old man hands that betray me,

With old man steps that falter …

And an old man’s mind,

That no longer questions.

.

Yesterday has become a blur.

Was it true that not so long ago,

I was loved, and loved …

Once laughter came freely,

And I could see with clear determination,

Beyond the horizon.

.

Now my mirror shows a stark reality,

And in the harsh reflection,

I realize,

With a small sense of acknowledgment,

That I have begun to feel every inch,

of what stares back at me.

.

My rest is coming with measured steps,

I do not know where or when.

The burden of this old man knowing,

Is not mine,

For I have released it all to the wind and God.

The Old Guy … Did I Do That? … Oh Noooooooo …

Oh Nooooooooo … .

Yes … she is cute, cuddly and supposedly innocent lying in my chair on my soft sittin’ pillow …. Mysteriously curious during photo shoots, or at rest … she misses nothing. But … a coiled tiger of energy rests inside … that can be awake and functioning within a single breath.

I was getting ready for church when Kat, fresh from a cat nap,  jumped up on the table, got tangled in my camera strap and pulled the steadfast photographic instrument off the wooden surface and onto the floor. Alas, the Nikon 18-105 mm VR lens was broken beyond repair (body damage), and the double battery grip/pack an unfortunate recipient of the same fate. A quick damage tally came to $400.00 USD or more. An expensive lesson learned about what you put on table tops.

The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … #20

.The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … #20

Thursday Menu

Two-step Pork Tenderloin browned on each side then placed in oven and baked for twenty minutes at 350 degrees. Oven time should be adjusted to oven type and tenderloin thickness in order to not overcook meat. 

Milk with two teaspoons of cornstarch is slowly stirred into a stick and three-quarters of melted butter.

Boiled and drained Bow Tie Pasta covered and slow cooked in Garlic Butter Sauce until completely saturated. 

Plated! Two-Step Pork Tenderloin, Buttered fresh Sweet Corn and Bow Tie Pasta with Garlic Butter Sauce.

The Garlic Butter Sauce was a luxurious addition to the Bow Tie Pasta. It was thick and creamy and a welcome success to bounce out of a string of less than desirable, and edible menu failures. The only adjustment that needs to be made to the recipe is halving the ingredients including the amount of pasta. I ate Bow Tie pasta leftovers for three and a half days.

The Old Guy … Crafty-Curious-Able To Leap …

Crafty & Curious-And … .

I was caught off guard when Kat came to live with me. I greatly underestimated her. And even greatly doesn’t describe the length and depth of my ineptness. I was under the impression and thought she was a sweet little soft kitty that loved naps, playing with stuffed mice and looking outside at the birds from the back of the couch. Along with my scratched up legs, arms and hands … I am learning.

Twice I caught her up on the stove or at the kitchen sink and countertop. Scolding her didn’t seem to make an impression. I was lost to find a solution. Then one afternoon, she must have forgotten I was sitting at the kitchen table working on the computer. She jumped into the other kitchen chair, then jumped onto the small food preparation ledge in front of the microwave and was almost ready to jump onto the stove when I hollered at her. It’s not practical to move the microwave because I needed the ledge to stir food and the likes when cooking. Moving the chair into the back bedroom wasn’t a solution because I needed it for food prep. So, after thinking it over, the temporary fix was to block the ledge with a pizza box and a moist wipe container. I also  keep the chairs pushed up to the table when not in use. So far this temp fix has stopped further feline exploration of the sink, counter and stove top. It has not stopped the demand for explanations.
