A calm spot in the evening

When I got home with the boys, I went into high speed. Flar was getting ready to go to this evening meeting he has once a month, and said not to plan dinner around him.

So I made Chicken n Dumplings. I still need to put together the calorie count on it. Hungry Jack flaky biscuits dissolve more than they dumpling, so perhaps it's creamy chicken soup.

I caught up on Live Journal while I was cooking, but my computer locked up with I tried to look at a page with political cartoons made out of movie posters. I haven't tried the page again, to see if it was that page, or just too much open at the same time. I tend to open new windows to read all the comments, and to make comments, while I'm reading my Friends view.

If you saw me in AIM and then I went away, that's why.

I've been running AIM more now, as a simpler way to communicate with Critter upstairs.

I'm disappointed that I didn't have Flar's clothes folded for him when he got home, but I picked flowers for the kitchen table: daffodils and pink hyacinth (thank you Wolf for helping me find the name). I've decided if I'm going to suffer from allergies, I might as well enjoy the view. ;)

And, now that I've reformatted my weekly list for increased readability in the text file, I've got to get to work on laundry.

The list:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple
