It’s Sunday afternoon of Labor Day Weekend (though you’ll read this on Wednesday) and yes, I have labored. What have I done? The usual Saturday and Sunday chores (you know, all the stuff you don’t have a chance to do during the work week), but this weekend, I’m also making a big batch of spaghetti sauce (with meatballs and sausage), which is simmering as I write and I’ve got a roast in the crock pot that I’m going to shred for chili.
|The pot I use is about four times this size...and it's full!|
The aromas coming from the kitchen are driving my dog nuts. She’s not sleeping in her usual places, which is the loveseat or the futon behind me. Nope, right now, she is sprawled on the living room floor, her front paws and her nose in the kitchen. She really hasn’t moved from this spot (and yes, I’ve tripped over her a time or two…I always apologize though, especially when she looks at me like “Didn’t you see me here?”. Is she hoping I’ll drop something? Oh yeah, that’s what she’s waiting for. Eventually, she’ll be rewarded for her patience.
The other thing I did (in between the cooking and the cleaning)? I finished reading To Save a Sinner by Adele Clee. Ms. Clee is a new author for me and I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. So much so, that I’m gonna have to pick up her backlist. I love it when I find a new author! Especially if she (or he) has a backlist!
Now that I have all that done (well, almost done….I’ll be divvying up the sauce later to freeze and shredding that roast) but tomorrow (which is Monday and Labor Day and a day off from the day job), I plan to indulge in my passion for movies. We have free Showtime this weekend (whoooo-hooo!). I’ve made a list and hope to get as many movies in as I can (Any suggestions? I like just about anything). Doesn’t that sound great? A total veg day for me...
Unless inspiration strikes and my current characters start talking to me, which would be great. I love it when my characters tell me things. I’m working on a Mail Order Bride story and it’s been fun. She’s kinda spunky and I like that.
And that’s it for me….gotta go stir that sauce.
Until next time, remember to spread kindness wherever you go.
