I had such a well-planned list made for today. Wonder where I went astray?
There's a need to be organized (or-gan-ized . . . hmm, must look up the definition of that word), because on Monday of this week we made a trip to the big city (which takes all day) to leave our Suburban truck to have its back end worked on . . . something about a bad bearing. I also took along both of my sewing machines to be left and serviced as neither of them had been checked over in a coon's age, and I was having minor problems with both of them.
Now we're looking at shooting another whole day going back to pick up the truck and my machines. Okay, so I shouldn't look at it as "wasting" the day certainly. Rather I'm actually thankful we have a reliable place to have good work done on the truck, and the shop where I purchased my sewing machines, many long years ago, does their own repairs right on the premises and is more than fair in what they charge for the services.
However, it's not the best time of the year to be traveling the roads as our temps have been hovering right around freezing with rain/sleet/snow falling which can lead to unsafe driving conditions. Our trip on Monday was on clear roads (thankfully) except for the fact that the deer are out and moving about in numbers right now, and you have to drive with eyes constantly peeled for the critters trying to cross the road . . . usually right in front of you.
I did manage to get a batch of cookies made late this afternoon for my husband who finds it difficult to drive long distances without cookies to sustain him.
Our good ol' hens (new chickies ordered for this spring), all eight of the old girls, have been giving us four eggs a day consistently all winter. Can't complain about that.
Also in the above picture you can see a couple of balls of pie crust I pulled out of the freezer to make a cherry pie for which I've had a hankering. The balls of crust are, as of this writing, still waiting to be made into said pie, but there's a chance that could still happen tonight. Maybe.
What was the first item on that list I made for today? Clear Off Desk Top. How'm I doin'?
