This one has convection and is big enough for a 13 inch pizza. I can cook whole meals in it.

Just finished supper, picked up a thin pizza & some wings at wal mart. Sitting & relaxing for the first time today in my recliner. Rushing from 1 thing to the next most of the day.

I am fortunate in that I don't have to worry about paying for the water or heating it. So I can stay in there as long as I want to.

I just finished sitting here for three hours listening to The Vienna Boys Choir clips on YouTube. I need to get up and stretch the old body.

Good morning. I am just getting up and trying to wake up to go to work. We have a brunch on Sundays. 7:30 start time for a 9:00 opening. I like being back in food service but don't like the weekend work. It's even more fun(not) when I play with the band the night before. Nothing like going to work on 3 hours sleep.

And a good morning to you. Serving the public in any manner means giving up your life.

Not when you volunteer and choose your hours, like I do There are plenty of 9-5 jobs serving the public as well.

I'm reading the Sunday paper and helping DH plan the menu and shopping list for an annual event he does for about 24 science teachers in the district. He and a couple of others teach a graduate class funded by a grant. As a capstone for the class, they take the teachers to a state park and rent a couple of lodges. They give their final presentations on their projects (project-based learning for students) and do a one-day canoe/kayak trip on the James River. I usually go to help cook, but this year I'm going to visit my sister, BIL and Dad in Austin next weekend.

Sounds like has a busy time ahead. I would love to go on that canoeing trip. I am killing time until I know my daughter is up. This is her chemo week and I know she spends most of it in bed. I just wish I could do something to help her.

Cleaning the floor of my downstairs bathroom/utility room/laundry room/mud room. Needless to say, with such multi-purposing, the floor catches a lot of yuck: Mud year round, de-icer, melting ice/snow, salt and boots strewn around all winter, gardening clogs, sneakers, yet more mud, and grass and leaf trimmings all summer, lint flying from the clothes dryer year round, dog bathing stuff and hair all around. Ugh! It is a chore!
