bundled up, walkabout, snow

All Caught Up

  • Mail
    I pretty much handled all of Saturday's mail yesterday, but I put together a couple of envelopes to mail this morning.
  • Dishes
    There was only one pot to wash.
  • Paper
    Including the Jumble and the crossword.
  • Laundry
    I have towels and my own clothes to fold and put away, after I read email and LJ, round one. ;)
  • Coupons
    All ready to sort into the coupon envelope -- during carline.
  • Tables
    Kitchen table & dining room table are clear, including Tigger's and Critter's piles.
  • Quicken
    I updated Quicken yesterday when I paid bills.

It looks like there maybe really be something to staying caught up. :)

It's earlier than I've gotten up all vacation, and I've already:
  • Fixed banana pancakes for breakfast
  • Caught Up
  • Updated the Rookettes records

I'm going to take some time to read email and LJ, and catch up on some online comics, and then go fold clothes and put them away. When Flar gets home, I'm going to see what he'd like for me to do today, seeing as how I have made all this time for myself.

And then after lunch, I've got an online date with Sydb. Woot!

Monday morning

Finished getting caught up, by folding clothes and towels and putting them all away. Flar chose cleaning out the fridge, which I did, as well as cleaning out the chest freezer.

I need to come up with a plan for dinners for the week, using food on hand as much as possible. Tonight for dinner, I'm expermenting with canned diced potatoes and canned creamed corn, to make corn chowder.

I think I'll scout around for some recipes first. Then hop into the kitchen to start dinner and fix my lunch, before getting back online for my date.

quickie update

The chowder looks and smells yummy. If it's a success, I'll post the recipe tomorrow.

I've opened today's mail and updated quicken. I'm taking stationery to work to write a letter to Gaucha, the only Christmas card I haven't yet answered (for some reason it kept hanging out in our bedroom).

Now I'm off to work. Staying awake tonight will be a challenge.
