Catching up slowly today.

Knight distracted me. :)

I've only gotten through the first few items of my CUC¹, but I made pretties today. Not happy with my first attempt at a durable CUC, but I've a couple of other ideas...

And, I replaced the stone in my poison ring in time for lip balm weather. Now to find my Bert's Bees.

I called Opman, and I don't have to work tonight. Which means that now I'm plotting dinner. Sayre had Chicken and Dumplings on the menu, but Tigger couldn't find where it was being served. He mashed up the new potatoes instead. On top of that, the Gardenside Café was serving Chicken and Dumplings today. So I'm jonesing for dumplings. I was going to get all fancy, trying to create a yummy whole grain recipe for dumplings, but then I remembered the Carbquick I bought. So I'm going to make my normal recipe, then cook dumplings made with Carbquick & olive oil (instead of shortening) and remove them and some of the chicken, then cook regular dumplings for the rest of the chicken.

[¹] Caught Up Checklist
Those household station-keeping tasks with which I am now caught up, and intend to address daily, as part of CUC time.
  1. Dishes
  2. Mail
  3. Paper
  4. Laundry
  5. Tables
  6. Quicken
  7. Filing²
  8. Coupons
  9. Fixtures³

[²] Okay, technically not caught up yet, but I think this will be my final list, if it can include filing.
[³] Right, this is "sinks and toilets", but "fixtures" looks prettier on a durable checklist.
