Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Have you ever had one of those days when everything is going just fine, and then suddenly, it takes an unexpected turn?
Well, Monday was one of those days.
My adventure began with a simple plan:
After a long day of work I wanted to bake some delicious stuffed jalapeños to snack on as I caught up on emails, texts and messages. I had everything ready, from the tofu, (it was drained and pressed,) to the jalapeño peppers.
But when I reached for the peppers, I found only one lonely jalapeño remaining. Where did the other nine disappear to?
It was a tragic culinary mystery!
In moments of doubt, I believe in going with the flow and embracing spontaneity. So, I decided to scrap the jalapeno recipe and improvise. I grabbed some breadcrumbs and coated the tofu, I also added a few spices and off we went to the air fryer. I air-fried the tofu until it turned golden brown and crispy. Admittedly, I should have pressed the tofu a bit longer, but it turned out surprisingly well.
Just as I was about to tuck into my tofu creation, there was another twist in store. The power went off, which was a surprise as it was a sunny afternoon. No storms or even any rain on the horizon.
As I sat eating my tofu by candle light, I couldn't help but think about the simple pleasures of life and what we take for granted. For instance, electricity?
Don't get me wrong, I wasn't worried, the cozy cottage was well-stocked with an abundance of candles, matches, lighters, etc. It was a pleasant weather and I had plenty of fruit and snacks to eat without cooking, but it was still an unexpected occurrence.
Actually the thought of a slow, candlelit evening brought a smile to my face. My trusty Mac had a fully charged battery that should last for six hours, ensuring I had a source of light and entertainment. On the other hand, my cellphone and the all-important mobile hotspot were hanging on with less than 10% battery.
However, the idea of being disconnected from the online world felt like a welcome respite. After numerous work meetings this week, I was grateful for this brief break, even if it meant sitting in the dark.
Could this be a message to slow down?
As I settled into the stillness of the darkened cottage, I contemplated the beauty of simplicity and a quiet evening. This was probably just what I needed to recharge and rest. It was during this moment that the power suddenly came back on.
In retrospect, this unexpected power outage turned out to be a valuable reminder to unplug and rest. It reminded me of the importance of taking a break from the constant chaos of the digital world and appreciating the simple things in life. So, while the day didn't go as planned, it was a reminder that sometimes the unexpected can bring us the most valuable insights.
I hope you have a great day, full of unexpected twists and valuable lessons!
