I did nothing, absolutely nothing, very unlike me but it felt great to lounge around and recoup on some much needed rest.

errr. is 'nothing' an answer?! ok ok, I did enjoy doing pretty much nothing, had such an awesome brunch with my girlfriends - omelet (ham, onion and avocado), the best french toast ever and nutella crepe. Woww, after that, I could not do much because I was so full!

Congrats from me too, Luvs!

I got some more good writing done, and now I'm getting ready to wash my hair.
We get by with a little help from our friends

the hardest thing in the world for me to do is to do nothing. got it done today though, lol. read the paper and drank coffee. played on line my word game, surfed the forums i belong to. took a nap. on net most of afternoon. did search on line for planting zones and container gardens for vegs. got out the book i bought on it and read part, finish tonight. oh forgot to say more rain, and gloom and chilly, so just stayed warm and goofed off. actually it wasn't that hard at all.

Assembled a porta-crib to keep in guest room ... my first grandchild / granddaughter, daughter, & son-in-law come for a visit next month ... now I have to sew Care Bear sheets & bumper pad.

And my doggie Lucy was standing by to give me assembly advice ...

Finished laundry for my kids, fixed dinner and exercised with DH.

I finally got around to making my first ever batch of home-made refried beans. The best thing is, they turned out great!

Ok, this thread is dated the 15th. I searched the net for recipes for 2. I need to revamp my cooking and shopping habits as it is just me. I read a million recipes and saved about 100. I plan to plan a menu and shop accordingly. I usually just fill the pantry and freezer with everything. I can't afford to do that now. Planning all that took up most of the day. Then I talked to my son and on the spur of the moment, haphazardly planned a dinner for my grandsons 7th birthday. Just typing this is making me tired. I ended up roasting a chicken, making parsley potatoes, succotash and a chocolate cake with chocolate malt frosting.
