I actually didn't watch the sun rise this morning, although I was probably still up at an unholy hour. But at least I didn't have to rush out in the frosty dark to get to work (that starts again on Monday). Actually tasting a hot cup of coffee and watching John Besh cook crab gnocchi. Goodness, what a gorgeous dish! And the gnocchi don't look bad either...
My apartment has become a complete disaster area. Working so much OT, I come home too exhausted to do much of anything. So when I got up this morning I emptied the dishwasher and put the dirties in and washed all the pots and pans. I'm SLOWLY picking up trash and at an upcoming commercial break I'm going to go put cleaners in the toilet and tub. The break after that I'll actually scrub them.
The neighbor who promised to help me with the laundry flaked on me so I'm not going to count on her again. I think tomorrow morning I'm going to take the clothes to the laundry room near my apartment that is easiest to get into. I figure at eight on Sunday morning there won't be any competition, and I can get it all done fairly quickly. Sweet Alton is just going to have to wait a bit. I've already recorded the two hours of Good Eats that will be on tomorrow morning and I can watch in the afternoon. I'm also putting a pot roast with potatoes and carrots in the crock pot, so I won't have to worry about cooking since I'm probably going to be wiped out.
Almost time for breakfast. SO glad I got more eggs with the groceries last night. Did the Good Lord invent a more versatile food? I think not. Also time for another hot cup of coffee.
