Pealed an entire jars worth of garlic (any hints on how to get the smell off my fingers?), helped my daughter blow up a bunch of balloons to fill her friend's car with for the girl's 18th birthday, put together my Pampered Chef new consultant book, and organized my little instruction cards all while watching a Roseanne marathon on Oxygen. It's more than I've done in days and it really doesn't feel like all that much.

Lemon juice... that's what I have always heard to take away odor from the hands, due to onions or garlic.

Happy Birthday to your DD's friend!

AND, I love Roseanne!! That is like my family back in NY state.



Me, I worked today, and then I came home to make dinner. I am spoiling myself tonight, while doing laundry. Exciting, eh?

I have been swimming today and going to make a vegetarian stir fry with lots of crunchy vegetables and chick peas. I feel the spring in the air and start eating healty for those sunny days ahead.

Ahhh.... a bubble bath, that's what I need after working all day, but I'm making dinner!... but you're three hours ahead of me, so that explains it.

On your avartar, is that your kitty? That looks like a cat I had years ago, named Cassie.


Me, I worked all day. Then, I came home and unloaded the dishwasher/partially loaded it up again, 2 loads of laundry, making supper, made a big pitcher of iced tea... and that's about it so far... on the computer, too!

Shredded some Vermont cheddar for use in the bread dough.
Made a batch of Vermont Cheddar Cheese bread dough and baked 3 loaves of them.
Cleaned up the kitchen.

I rearrange my office. I recently purchased a new computer and found when moving my computer desk that it was literally on it's last leg, so I bought a new computer desk and rearranged the whole room in the process. Now it's nice and neat and no I can't promise it will stay that way!

The other 1/2 is wednesdays project.
Nothing feels better than swinging a sledge hammer in 20 degree weather....
