Things I did today


Today I worked from home and got the last few church things done before Thanksgiving (remotely from home) and then made two homemade pies for Thanksgiving...pumpkin and cherry. Pie is probably my favorite dessert of all time. My grandmother used to make excellent pies...the absolute best. I don't quite come up to her standard but I try hard. I am also making something special for Larry's birthday which is Friday. I won't put the details here, being that he reads my blog daily -- good husband that he is. (GRIN)


I cleaned out my spice cabinet today and rearranged it. I've been wanting to do that for four years. Seriously. It's waited that long. It's a major job as the cabinet is large and being that I am a serious cook I have a gazillion spices, cooking and baking products. For some reason the mood struck me today to just do it.

Dustin is at college in classes til late tonight, Jordan has an away soccer game tonight and Larry has a board meeting. I am going to get another dish made for Thanksgiving, and do some light cleaning and go to bed early again. I know many people wouldn't understand how I could be this tired after a good night's sleep, but all I can say is I truly am tired. Thanks to all who gave me the advice to slow down and allow myself to take time to recooperate. Aside from doing these few things I am resting as much as possible and going to bed early again tonight without guilt.

Wish I could say I made my pumpkin and cherry pies...never made them before. I store bought them..if I could get someone to teach me how to make a home-made cherry or apply pie I would be estatic!
Thank you for the comment about my header. Sent you an email. GET SOME REST! You are a crazy woman! Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving - and as far as pies go? I'm in charge of the veggie tray for my family's Thanksgiving, if that tells you anything (Oh, they SAY it's because we are traveling 7 hours to get there, but we all know that's not entirely true, lol!).
