This morning I was up way too early, especially considering that I stayed up really late finishing Addie’s Thanksgiving pillow.
This one paragraph will give you an idea of what I’ve accomplished today. I walked from the bedroom to the living room this morning with a pair of socks in my hand. Vince had heard me talking on the phone in the bedroom so I sat down on the sofa to tell him about that conversation. At some point, I was in the kitchen and my toes were cold and I remembered I hadn’t put my socks on and I needed to put my shoes on since I was cooking (heel pain). I went into the living room, got my socks . . decided I should bring in the laundry basket out of our bathroom and get some laundry going. I put the socks down on the bed so the clean socks didn’t get put in the dirty clothes. About an hour later, I saw the mail carrier go by and thought . . my toes are cold and it’s going to be colder outside so I went and got the socks off the bed. Before I went out to get the mail, Vince called me downstairs to look at something. I thought .. I’ll sit down on the sofa downstairs and put my socks on. Nope . . never sat down. Went into the downstairs garage to get the turkeys out of the freezer and put them in the fridge. Put the socks down on the workbench and forgot about them.
It’s almost 1:30. My toes are still cold. My socks are downstairs. I need to go transfer clothes from the washer to the dryer, grab another pair of socks and put them on but heck . . why mess up a clean pair of socks when the day is half over? 🙂
So .. here’s how the rest of my day is going.
Fairly early this morning, I went into the kitchen to get a pot of stew going in the slow cooker. Vince came in and wanted breakfast. I said “Vince! I’m getting the meal going for this evening. I cooked all day yesterday!” I really was hoping to throw a few things in the slow cooker and be done in the kitchen today and have the whole day to stitch. He said “You can cook the bacon in the microwave.” I was tempted to slap a whole slab of bacon in the microwave, cook it and put it on the table but . . I obviously needed an attitude adjustment. I said “How about ham and omelettes?” He was good with that. I fixed breakfast, then browned the stew meat, got everything else in the slow cooker.
This is the recipe I’m making but I’m adding potatoes, corn, frozen mixed veggies and frozen lima beans because why not load it up with carbs? 🙂 I want it to be more of a soup than a stew. Plus, the more I add, the more meals we get out of it and this week is going to be all about Thanksgiving meal prepping. I haven’t put the potatoes, corn or beans in the stew pot yet. I’m going to go do that right now!
