Another of those gorgeous beautiful sparkling October days. Oh! How fortunate we are to have June and October, April and May. To me, those are the most special months.
I slept badly last night. I think in part because I let my former co-worker bother me. The guy torqued my jaw I will admit. That is my problem and shame on me. I am over it as of today. It was one of those things where someone said or didn't say what I hoped for..I got my tail in a knot over it and woke occasionally with one of those ever ready to spring into your head at the first opportunity thoughts that go like this: " I should have said--------" Arrrrgh, I hate it when that happens. After waking probably 6 times and re-positioning myself each of them, I got up with the first meow of the day and started in cooking.
My youngest came for lunch and shame..I didn't go to church. Instead I fried chicken so as to cut it up for my first ever in my life home made chicken pot pie. It was the most expensive thing I ever made I swear. The chicken (I made that choice though) was 5.00 dollars for skinless boneless. The veggies a bunch more...and so on. But after $13.00 or so worth of stuff it was made and while good..too bland. Help!!! Also made a totally from scratch apple cake that was good (caramel glaze) and messed up my pristine kitchen! All my gleaming surfaces...full of batter and apple chunks. (had I never heard not to try to beat with a mixer 3 eggs and 4 cut up small apples?) But good, I reckon. I took 2 peices up the street to good friends..made N. take some home with him. Ate 2 pieces mySELF and consequently got back up on the treadmill again!
I am enjoying the heck out of my time this past several days. This past week-- save the tragedy next door. A week from Thursday a friend invited me to go to where some Mennonites are in another County and see the crafts and foods. Looking forward to that.
If I seemed querelous that last blog it was not my intention. It was one of my introspective ones and usually I don't do that. I'll have one of my own chocolate chip cookies and move on.
