A Domestic Kind of Day

This was a good day. I feel like I got quite a bit accomplished. Nice feeling. :)

As usual, I started the day in the dark, getting up when the alarm sounded at 6:15. Yeah, I know, I'm retired so why the heck am I setting the alarm??? I've found that I function better when I get up at the same time each day and I don't do well if I sleep late. Plus, I like going to Curves first thing in the morning, so I like to get there when it opens at 7am. Combine that with a need to spend a few minutes in prayer/devotional time, I get up early.

Once back from Curves I indulged my normal routine of coffee, computer, and morning TV. After The View was over, I got my shower and started my "chores" for the day. Randy was already outside working in the yard. He had told our landlord, Ron, that he would do some yardwork while Ron & Ruth were away this week. There are some things that need to get done before Dick & Pat get here the first of the month.

I had two things I wanted to do today. Make dinner using a new recipe and continue making progress on my current cross-stitch project. And since the dinner recipe was a crockpot one, I had to get it started by noon. The recipe is Crockpot Enchiladas and it turned out really good! And it was pretty easy. That's two new recipes I've cooked this week. I'm very proud of myself.

After getting dinner into the crockpot, cleaning up the mess, making myself a salad for lunch, I was ready to sit down. That's a little too much domesticity for me!! :) I spent the next couple of hours cross stitching and watching some shows I'd recorded. Randy spent the afternoon upstairs in the bedroom watching shows he'd recorded. We're such TV addicts!

We did take a walk before dinner and found that Larry & Cindy have arrived. Cindy is another dulcimer player; she and Larry are good folks and we're glad to see them here safely.

And that was our day. Until the next time . . .


  1. What? You post about a new recipe but don't share?? What's that all about? ;-)

  2. I'd love to have a day like that! Sounds like you are having a lot of fun on the road.
