Just finished slicing, chopping, etc. everything for tonight's dinner. I've learned to do those things early in the day when the arthritis hasn't clobbered my hands.

Also, finished 3 loads of laundry and have all of it put away, which is a good feeling to have it all done and where it belongs.

Lastly, a few minutes ago I pulled out two loaves of French bread from the oven. Omigosh, the house smells so gooooood! I got up this morning and just wanted to make bread...any kind of bread and settled on baguettes.

As it turned out, I let the bread dictate what tonight's evening meal would be. Worked out great and I'm glad most of today's "chores" are behind me and I can play or, perhaps, take a short nap.

I'm on the phone with my cell phone provider. They are going to give me a Samsung, Galaxy Q, Android phone for 30 "Fido dollars" and a 2 year contract. I have been with them for over 11 years, so I have no issue with the contract. They are also giving me a better monthly plan and a blue tooth headset. w00t!

Have the liquid part of a Thai curry ready for dinner. Need to put in the spinach and chicken, but that's last minute. Husband loves the way my chicken breasts taste and mouth feel when I do this. The real thing is it has to go in very last minute, just lightly poached.

Still haven't gotten our forms from the bank, credit union, and even the fed government so I can start getting taxes together.

Have you already posted your recipe for this? If so, would you provide a link to it?

Thanks!

wow what a productive day! With this freezing weather it makes me want to start the oven & warm things up with good smells. Thanks for the inspiration.

why is it that this thai curry dish has such an erotic feel to it?

I just love French onion soup JoAnn. I had some on Monday at Panera Bread. ;)

We're watching the live SpaceFlightNow feed from the cape in Florida. At 6:38 EST today, our son will push the button (or throw the switch or whatever they do) to launch the Delta 4 rocket carrying the MGR-4 military communication satellite. His first mission as the launch control officer.
