Thanks for all the dinner comments yesterday-they were just what a girl needed for a good dose of culinary inspiration.
We ended up having whole wheat pasta in a garlic-y, lemon alfredo sauce topped with chicken, garden broccoli, carrots, onions and a hearty handful of fresh basil. And some homemade apple sauce.
And wouldn't you know it? Yesterdays veil of lethary lifted about 3:00pm and I ended up doing dishes, twice. sweeping floors. cleaning toilet and bathroom. putting laundry away. doing more laundry. hanging said laundry to dry and taking it back down from the line again. making supper. unpacking Sundays picnic things and swimming things. hardboiling dozens of eggs. changing the sheets on the beds. tidying my bedroom. Having the children tidy theirs. paying some bills. weeding the basil. Adding more hay around the basil. cutting the suckers off the corn. vacuuming the rugs. cleaning the living room. cleaning off the dining room table. emptying vases around the house, refilling vases with new, fresh cut flowers. sorting old eggs. sorting due library books. taking a shower and reading a bit before zonking out.
So see? I DO things.
Today I was smart and this morning I put a roast in the crockpot for shredded beef sandwiches tonight. Which is good, because I really don't feel like doing very much today...
(but you know I will.)
