I am one tired gal this morning. I went to bed last night early eager for a good night's sleep. I'm sure I was asleep by 9:30. At 3 a.m. this morning my eyes popped open and I was awake. Wide awake. But still feeling very tired. How could that be? It was so warm, so snuggly, so comfortable in bed, why-oh-why couldn't I fall back asleep?
Finally got up at 3:30. Poured myself a big glass of o.j. (I've always preferred cold beverages over hot), and made out my shopping list for supplies for Thanksgiving . (Which will be very different this year, but more about that in an upcoming post.) Then I sat on the couch and propped my feet up before an open fire and read from cover to cover my first issue of MaryJanes Farm. (Thanks again to my sweet niece, C, who started a subscription for me.)
Before I knew it, the clock said 5:15 and, of course, I was falling asleep. I didn't want to go back into bed because I knew the alarm was going to go off in 45 minutes. So I laid down on the couch and immediately fell into a deep, deep sleep. When hubby came out of our bedroom a few minutes before 6, I woke up but couldn't get off the couch because of the semi-truck parked on top of me. Ugh.
But enough whining. A new day has started. Ready or not, here I go.
I read Jo's blog post this morning over at 14 Acres about her putzy (but very productive) day yesterday. She and I must have been on the same putzy wave length because my day was much like hers except she still had a few things to pull from the garden.
I made a double batch of Walnut Clusters because hubby seems to be on a Walnut Cluster kick and had requested same.
Seems as though I couldn't find the time all summer to replenish our granola supply so I made a batch of that.
You know I get panicky when I don't have a back-up supply of frozen soups in the freezer so after making some Bean Soup with a saved ham bone on Monday, I stirred up this vat of Minestrone yesterday morning.
I even managed to get into my quilt studio (whoopee!) and start on the Christmas water color wall hanging for my daughter's office. Considering this represents about two hours of work, it doesn't look like much, does it? I've got to have this done by her Christmas Open House and Sale on December 4th. Yikes.
I had no part in this chore (except documenting it). Hubby decided to get up on the roof before it got a heavy snow cover to clean our two chimneys. Nothing in there but a bit of soot, but it's always good to know there's no build-up of dangerous creosote.
Okay, hubby requested breakfast at 7:15 this morning (he wants to be out and going on finishing putting up the siding on the north side of the garage by 8 a.m.) and I'm already behind. Gotta run.
