The start of a wonderful weekend.
Yesterday I made something I haven't tried before... homemade bread bowls. They were super yummy, and since I made a beef stew in the Crock-Pot, just the perfect thing to set off a super yummy dinner. Our middle daughter doesn't eat a lot of meat, so she passed on the beef stew. Well, the 4yr old told her, "Sara, you missed a yummy dinner!" It was funny, and super cute.
I had a productive day yesterday. We did grocery shopping, I washed 4 loads of laundry, cleaned the kitchen, cut up and through everything together for beef stew, and made those bread bowls. Tim cleaned up a bit and did some weed eating.
Speaking of the man, he did manage to find some race tickets in the monetary limit I'd set for him. LOL. I knew he would if he wanted to go bad enough. Now I have to go and order the tickets for him. ;-)
Oh, and I did some book writing too. It was a good day.
Today we don't have to go out for anything other than school drop-off and pick-up. I've sworn off article work this weekend until I'm done with the new chapter writing. I've decided that I will do NaNoWriMo after all this year, so I'm determined to get this one finished so I can write book 2 in this series during November. Should be lots of fun... yeah, fun, that's it! 50,000 words in 30 days. Why do I torture myself so. Oh yes, I'm a writer and that's what I do. LOL.
Nonetheless, today will be another work day. I'm thinking that I'll lock myself away in the bedroom and let Tim & the youngest fend for themselves together. Surely they'd survive a few hours without me. Um, yeah, wishful thinking, I know, but I may try it anyway.
Mom is suppose to take the kids tonight. Tim & I are planning a peaceful night at home with cheddar turkey hotdogs, potato salad, grown up drinks, and Netflix dvds. I enjoy our nights alone... and the morning after when we get to sleep until 10am.
I'm off for today. I hope you have a fabulous Friday and a glorious weekend. :-)
