I ran the Hot Chocolate 15K in St. Louis yesterday. We went out to Pi for Pizza afterwards, but ate a healthy appetizer (Hummus & veg) and a nice, big salad, so when the pizza came we just ate one piece. AND we walked, well, hobbled the half mile to the Pizza place

Got 5 cards in mail today. A "drop in the bucket". But I shopped for two needy 10 year olds, picked up prescriptions for DH and got some things needed at store. Made business calls and printed out some of the Christmas letters. Did hour of water aerobics, too.
No wonder I am tired!!!

Dogs are like kids and the elderly who do not do well as full moon approaches. Must remember to look at Super Moon tonight as DH and I noticed size of moon at dusk last evening.

I'm not sure what's up with these dogs. Maybe it's the approaching Super Moon? Either way they need to start sleeping through the night. I'm loosing a serious amount of sleep these days. emoticon

This year for Thanksgiving I made one of those 'quick' crusty yeast breads that you let rise as a sponge for 3+ hours then dump into a hot dutch oven and bake off.
I also made some quick knots. Half of those I brushed with garlic butter. YUM!
But I've made a million different types of bread over the years. I LOVE baking bread but we just don't eat as much of it as we used to.
I probably make more flatbread than anything else anymore.

I had a great week off. I got the biggest thing accomplished : cleaning out my baking cabinet. Al wants to take the dogs to the park today, but we have the tree to set up and I need to get all my things gathered together to go back to work.

You are not alone in the weather department. Our kids live in NC and OH and both are having extremes of weather. Last Saturday our daughter sent photo of snow and ice on windshield in Columbus and said she never saw snow so early there. Up and down is the name of the game!!!
Enjoy your week-end!

Not at all, Carol. Glad you all are having good weather. This is a typical Missouri autumn where one day it's 86 degrees F and the next day it's 36 degrees. The colors this year are amazing, though. emoticon

Will I hurt your feelings if I tell you we are going to have 85 degrees for one solid week and that I have been swimming almost every day? We did have a few cool days last week-end, but still sunny and beautiful. Guess Florida deserves this!

I have to go to Rolla for my mom's quarterly meeting at the Residential Home. And RIGHT at lunch time! So I'm eating a good, filling breakfast, taking a healthy snack and then getting a healthy salad at the Panera Bread there. Planning makes Possibilities!

Grrr. So, I usually work a compressed schedule which means that on week ONE I work 4x9 hour days and 1x8 hour day; week TWO I work 4x9 hour days and I get that Friday off! It's a great way to make sure I have a day off every two weeks if I need to make an appointment or whatever.
Because I'm doing this conference in Richmond next week, and because it tips its way through two pay periods, I have to revert to 5x8 hour days for the next month emoticon
I know it's not the end of the world, but my life is, obviously, planned around my usual schedule. I guess a (short term) change is good for the soul????

I don't think it was on purpose...I work for the government so that's half the problem!
However, things have worked out and as terrified as I am I AM GOING TO RICHMOND! I am so excited about what the conference is about, but doing something like this on my own is so outside my comfort zone it's not even funny. But I can do this!

Yes I sure know how you feel. It's awful. Why do people do that. Surely it can't be purposefully.

ARG! I wanted to go to a convention at the end of this month. I told my bosses about it in AUGUST...they approved in Sept. but only paid the registration then because they wanted the rest paid with FY 2018 funds. Great. wonderful. but no one told me the deal was I would pay for this & they would reimburse me....as a result I may not get to go because the hotel is no longer offering the rate I need.
I hate being in the dark!

One of the best parts of a turkey is all you can do with it after the initial meal!
Hmmmm, maybe I'll have to bake one up.

I had turkey for Thanksgiving yesterday and I made my broth. I'm dealing with the preparations I did yesterday like taking the fat off broth and cutting up the turkey into portions for later use.

murder mystery is usually what I pick. Something to do with food. A bride and groom on top of a wedding cake with the groom knocked over. A table full of delicious desserts and a bloody knife at the end of the table. Books that get my attention. Detective books.

Fires are over. It has been raining and more in the forecast. Boo!

While shopping or just out have you seen children and or adults with costumes on over the summer? It seems to be something that is becoming more of a trend. A child in a bunny suit a parent with an animal tail hanging out of her pants and others.

I got into work & an alarm is going off...called the desk & they said it's okay & they'll tell the building manager. I tried to reset it but no luck. Fortunately I can't hear it from my workstation!

It turned out to be an alarm saying the fire suppression compressor was off-line. No problem unless the system decided that the lack of air in the system meant we had a fire. Water and libraries do not mix!

Looks like our hot weather is back next week. I will admit, it has been so nice to have green grass all summer long! Usually the hot & dry of August turns our grass to cornflakes. AND I get to mow the lawn today!!!!

I've going to do some shopping for me. I need white thread so off to the fabric shop where my eyes light up. I'm also picking up ingredients from superstore to make my vegetarian mincemeat. It takes apples and they are on sale now. I'll freeze it and use it when mincemeat season is here.

I think one of the trickiest things when you cook from scratch is trying to then track the food on Spark People. I don't always follow recipes and trying to figure out if that Tablespoon ended up as part of two servings or three gets frustrating.
Unfortunately, that frustration is part of why I stopped tracking food and now I am so out of the habit I'm having a hard time getting back into it.

I went with my daughter and her family to Jefferson City so we could see the TOTAL eclipse! It was truly awe-inspiring. Even after anticipating it for so long. Even after the build up, even after hearing people talk about having seen others; there we all sat with our glasses on as day turned to night and then! GASP! Everyone in the park at the exact same time! We had over two minutes of totality and it was amazing.

All we had was slight dimming of sun for several hours. Was weird!

DH turned 85 today and he wanted salmon for his birthday dinner which we had beside the pool. Grandson put seasoning on salmon, covered it with fresh lemon slices and wrapped it in foil to do on grille. No restaurant serves it so good. Had brown rice, brussel sprouts, asparagus with mushrooms, and salad of tomatoes, baby cucumbers and red onions in Italian Dressing. No cake, so dessert was big fresh fruit salad. I will make Chuck a coconut cake at later date. (Kids are gluten free and our son doesn't like coconut.)

I do love various kinds of muffins and these involve two ingredients I really like. Did you use frozen cranberries? Maybe you can share the recipe.
