No alarm

I made some scones yesterday so I could take them to work this week. I made them with no cholesterol:

Vegan Scones with Blueberries.

    2 cups flour (unbleached or whole wheat pastry)
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    3 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoons salt
    1/4 cup sunflower or other light oil
    about 3/4 cup plain (unflavoured) soy milk
    1 cup blueberries

    Preheat oven to 450 deg F. Mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut in the oil until the mixture is the consistency of coarse cornmeal. With a wooden spoon stir in the milk, using enough so the dough holds together and is neither dry nor wet. Fold in the blueberries. With two spoons put biscuit sized lumps of dough on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are light golden brown.

    So good even if I did forget and the bottoms were almost burnt.

I forgot to set my alarm last night and woke up late. I was only ten minutes late to work but I prefer to be a little early and running so fast I never quit got in sync today. I like to have a little breather when I get to work to get my mind in gear. I missed not walking to work as that also get's the day going for me.

I even felt rushed at choir. I dashed in at the last minute and the sections had been moved all around and I was a little confused the whole way through. It was interesting to hear different parts though.

I'm also upset due to problems in TABRU caused by one person who preferred to try and destroy TABRU when we didn't go along with what she wanted to do. I don't understand people like that. If you don't approve of the way a group is going then you make your position clear and if that is not what everyone else wants, you leave or you fight, but you don't destroy.
