Maybe this new mexican place that just opened up.
Thanks, learning Semaphore! Or maybe it's just flapping my arms at Shrek to get his attention...

I love the sound of Scandinavian languages when they are speaking English. It is very lyrical.

This morning, I updated my freezer inventory to add all the meats I bought yesterday.

I like having it separated by type of meats and have finished dinners in their own category, along with a list of veggies and a really long list of "Other".

I ate breakfast, and planned lunch and dinner.

I'll be working on my "Home Sweet Home" needlepoint wall hanging and reading.

Not much kitchen work today. I just have to strip the pork roast and freeze in dinner size portions. I'll use the bone in my next bean stew.

Finally got out of the house today, been trying to get over this cold my DH was kind enough to give me. Took some books back to the library and went to the grocery store. Just got done putting some sloppy joe mix in the crock pot for supper. This afternoon I am just going to read my book (Ammie Come Home by Barbara Michaels) and sip some nice hot tea.

Just finished cleaning up the pots, etc. from the chicken stock I made yesterday. I let it cool overnight so the fat could surface. This morning, I strained it and ended up with 7 beautiful pints of nice, rich homemade chicken stock. It will live in the freezer until it gets called into service.

Next I'm going to ready things for a weekend visit from my oldest son and his new lady. They live in Atlanta and on Tuesday night my son called and asked if we were up for some weekend company. Well, of course. I'll never turn down a visit from any of my children.

I've already planned our meals, so all that's left to do is to ready their room and box up some things I've been accumulating for him that I'd planned to mail/ship to him. Now I won't have to and I can add to the collection. Yeah!!!! I also told him to bring along a cooler because I planned to send him home with some of mom's home cooking. Can you tell I'm excited?!

And I have to go to a meeting tonight. A very boring meeting. A meeting I wish I could miss. A meeting where I have to give a report on.
