I'm feeling mildly productive. I've gotten a nice start on laundry, to the point that I'm waiting on machines. I reorganized a cabinet section that was getting unruly, and then did the first run on mail, which doesn't count as sorting it, so I'm listing "thinning" separately.
I figured out something that can simmer all day: potato-cheese soup, and (in another pan) block of something frozen. It might be chili, burgoo or gumbo. There's almost certainly meat in it, but it's hard to tell, otherwise. I'm thinking of cooking it in a pan in the toaster oven, as less likely to burn than on the stove....
The potato-soup is the lazy variety: onions & garlic sautéd in a little oil, packaged potatoes o'brien, a pound of velveeta, a quart of chicken boullion, and the rest of a bag of crinkle-cut carrots.
While I'm waiting for the laundry, I'm moving on to dishes. Thus pushing back quicken to tonight.
