i hope it's not the original one of which we refer...

i don't think that i've ever packed for any trip more than 12 hours from departure. usually in the frantic last few minutes. pds, you are too organized.

Yeah, but bucky, at least the original ALWAYS fits, even though it may have lost its elasticity in some areas and have a wrinkle or two.

I read the paper and had coffee this a.m., then got a haircut, then went shopping for plants and a few other things, and got some knives sharpened by the butcher at the supermarket. Came home, made a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch, made a focaccia for tomorrow's lunch, and read for a while. Then DH and I took the dog for a walk and then went to dinner. Just got back - I had Japanese sea bass with mashed potatoes and sauteed veggies. DH had Cajun-spiced Frutti di Mare - shrimp and scallops over linguine with peppers and onions in spicy tomato-cream sauce. Then he had an Espresso Martini and I had a Chocolate Martini and we shared a slice of chocolate cheesecake.

Sunday mornings, I always spend a couple hours in bed with coffee reading the paper. Then we make breakfast - probably pancakes and sausage and grilled pineapple. I have some work to do for my Tuesday class, so that will be tomorrow's chore. Then planning the week's menu, grocery shopping, and making dinner. Man, I'm tired already

I woke up feeling very sorry myself, the others are all gone to charleston for the week. I couldn't swing the holidays, so it's me and the cats. But, on the upside, I get to cook whatever I want, without having to worry about picky eaters. Made a double batch of crepes for the freezer, a great pastitso, and chicken with shallots, apples, calvados,and cream.

Have a great time in Mezico, PDS!!!!

Totally lazy day today. Didn't do much at all. Spent a lot of time here and did some writing.

Tomorrow I'll make a big "special" late breakfast. Might play with making a loaf of cinnamon-raisin bread.

Still trying to recover from the "crud" so I don't feel like doing much but sitting on my butt or napping. Ugh! Been like this for a month and it's getting very OLD!!!

I've been busy with performances this weekend. Today is the last one.
It gets really hectic when I have shows, trying to do all the house and family duties and having additional stuff to get ready for the show. Laundry is tough, I find the time to wash it but not time to fold it. The kids drawers start to go empty but even if it is a big pile of laundry, at least its clean laundry.
Other than that, not a whole lot going on around here. We went out for margaritas after the show last night. That was very fun.
Before I leave Aidan will tell me "break the leg Mom!"
