Eyes not shut

It is 2:52 AM, in the morning. I have laid in bed for hours…trying to go to sleep. I ate salmon patties. Something in them is keeping me wide awake. Salmon patties..you ask, what is that. You take a can of salmon and put one egg in it. Crush some crackers, I used about 6 of them. Mix it into the salmon and egg. Put some pepper in the mixture. I put a splash of milk, so it was not so dry. Make a patty and fry it up.

I put it in some canola oil. The stupid oil got hot and started popping all over the place. It popped out of the pan and hit my face. It hit me in the chin and neck. Hot oil popping out of the pan and burning your face is not fun. Hot oil spashing all over the stove and floor is a mess to clean up.

Something about that fish is not agreeing with me. It is keeping me awake. My body probably does not like the mercury that is in the fish. They say mercury is in a lot of fish.

So, I got up and turned on my computer and decided to write a post about my eyes wide open. Wishing I could go to sleep. I have to get up in 3 hours to get my son up for school. I should go back to bed and just close my eyes. Maybe I will eventually go to sleep.

I saw this cloud in the sky the other day. It was shaped very strange. The wind currents from the mountains make the clouds into flat looking clouds.

Maybe that is part of an angels wing, or at least it looks like one.

I love to make videos, cooking ones and legos ones. I like to draw and paint and make crafts and read blogs. I have a Nikon D80. I also use my new Canon Rebel. I don't really notice not much difference in pictures between the Nikon D80 but I bought for the video use. You can not use Nikon to make a video, it is not on the camera.

  1. Connie, I always enjoy visiting your blog. I think the issue with your sleeplessness was that the Canola oil got too hot. If it gets too hot the chemistry of the oil changes and it turns toxic. Ick! Toxic oil. Salmon is a pretty good fish to eat, so it’s a shame this happened to you. I hope you managed to get some rest. Keep on blogging!


    1. I didn’t know it gets toxic. Thanks for the info. It was popping all over. Scary too. I covered it and took it off the flame and it popped for a long time against the lid. I put it on a smaller burned and it stopped.
