Today is Mr. BlueCat's birthday and so I'll be making him his favorite dish, stir-fried chicken & shallots. We don't normally plan anything big for his birthday, since we're in the Chicago area and January 28th can bring all sorts of crummy weather, but today it's just supposed to be rainy and warm-ish for us. So we'll go out and do something fun.

We've got some snow to shovel. I need to do some cleaning and a little laundry. There's an elderly gentleman in town that we take care of...he just got home from the hospital last evening so we'll be going to check on him. I'd like to make some bread today...we'll see how the time goes.

Happy Birthday to Mr. BlueCat!

Still in my slug mode. Got some ribs defrosting on the counter for later. Refusing to do laundry today. Have to walk the dogs. HH is already taking his afternoon nap, and it's only just past noon here.

Today is dh's birthday and next week is grandaughter's birthday so we are combining them since my daughter will be out of town next week. I'm making a rib roast, rosemary baby potatoes, zuchini and yellow squash casserole, green salad and yeast rolls, with cheesecake for dessert. I've already been to Curves, the grocery store and done a couple of errands, so I think I need a brief nap.

I went back to sleep for a couple of hours. That felt good. It's still raining,so, I won't be doing too much until it stops, then, I have to go put deposits down on our cabins for the family reunion this year.

Just feeding Callum before I'm off to my first modern class since before I had him! I'm so excited! 1 1/2 hours, kid free! It will feel so good to get some good exercise! We've also got a friend visiting but we aren't really sure when he'll be here so I'm not sure what we'll do the rest of the day...

We're going to run some errands.. Safeway, homedepot and a stop at Starbucks (yes.. we go there tooooo much!!) After we get home we'll fix the toilet and fix a light switch that's broken and then I'll make some treats to take to the birthday party we are going to tonight. I'll try to get a nap in somewhere since it'll be a very very late night.

I'll be reading a dozen or so articles for my class and writing a short thing about which two articles have helped me the most on my project so far. Also I am washing clothes. I don't feel well at all (possible kidney stone, headache, blood pressure feels very high), so I may be sleeping some, but I also have lesson plans to do this weekend and an important assignment due Monday. Not a lot of rest time!
