What are you doing today?

Right now I am watching cooking shows on PBS. I don't have cable so I'm stuck with the local PBS shows.

We are doing errands all day. Shopping and taking things to be repaired. I'll also go to the tanning booth and get a dose of "SUNSHINE"

Worked on my dirtbike a little, smoking some beef ribs, my left hand found the business end of a screwdriver, so I'm nursing that.

Emptied and cleaned out a kitchen cabinet that I've been wanting to get to for a long time. Looks good.

Chopped up all the waste scraps from 10 pounds of chicken and several pounds of beef. Put them in a pot of water and simmered them for the outside kitties. They'll eat well for at least a week.

Made the dough for Vera's King Cake and have it in the refrigerator for it's 24-hour rest. Didn't get to the cake on Mardi Gras, so we'll enjoy it this weekend.

Will start reading a book I bought our 8-year-old grandson that I'll send him for his birthday, which is on Valentine's Day. We live far, far away from him and I want to be able to talk about the story with him when he reads it.

If there's any time left, I need to finish two columns I've started and do outlines for a couple more.

Love it when it's a sunny day. It's just like a shot of adrenaline and I have the urge to do all sorts of things.

What a good Grandma you are, Katie.

Went to ballet this morning. Then I came home and grabbed Aidan (dh and Callum napped together for 3 hours!) Aidan and I ran some errands for a friend that is on bed rest. We just came back from a walk down to the beach. Aidan scraped his back on a rock, so he'll be whiney and attached at the hip for the rest of the day. I'm gonna go start dinner now. Hopefully dh won't crash early tonight, I wanna watch Lost.
