Only two more days until Thanksgiving and I am so not ready. I wanted to do so many things but everything is taking so long to do. I have huge jobs in front of me. But I keep plugging away.
It has been two days now without a fever so I think I am finally over whatever it was I had. That was tough to shake. Joe, however, is sicker. If he is not better tomorrow, I am calling the doctor.
It has been cold and windy today. I didn't even bother picking up the yard very much because things were just blowing all over the place. When I went to feed the outside cats I did pick up a few things, but hopefully the wind will stop and I can really straighten up tomorrow.
Since it was so cold I decided to bake. Our kitchen is an add on and so it is very cold in the winter. Sometimes so cold we can't eat dinner out there. So running the stove is a good thing. I made peanut butter cookies this morning.
Cookies don't last long around here, so I don't expect them to be around too long.
This evening I made a rustic apple tart. I had two apples that were on the verge of going bad. I decided to make this so that I could salvage them.
I did a lot of cleaning today, but still so much more to go. I did make a big dent, though, so I'm happy about that.
But now I have to run. I still have to type up my lesson for tomorrow. Another busy day ahead. I'll leave you with this poem I found. It has a lot of truth to it.
