is there an ap for that?

Symptoms may include muscle fatigue, pain, tiredness, weakness--

The post-novel ennui is weird, this time out. It's manifesting as physical tiredness rather than can't-brain. So while I know I should be dragging myself out for more exercise, it's just not happening. My calves hurt. How ridiculous is that? As if writing novels were climbing stairs.

Ooof.

But I did write 1000 words on the novella last night. Today, I'd like to write a thousand more, and a thousand pages of the novel. And I have a whole pile of beets to can or pickle... and I might make borscht with some of them. Also, I need to eat a lot of salad.

I know, thrilling, right?

Off to scrub beets!

There was a lot of scrubbing of cucumbers yesterday. ;-)

The second picture is almost entirely the sweet pickles. And now I have to go load the dishwasher. Sigh.
Very nice.
I am convinced, after a childhood of hand-washing everything, that the dishwasher is Dog's gift to canning.

[Mom, with her corn allergy, mostly did fruits and zucchini relish, things that in their mass-produced versions contained corn syrup. It was, of course, the job of the children to do the pre- and post-canning washing.]
