Wowsers, did this day ever get away from me!
A close friend who lives away for the winter phoned this morning to say she was back early this year. Of course we needed to catch up, so I invited her for lunch, not sure what if anything we had in the house for hosting a lunch.
DW had a sleepless night last night so needed to sleep this morning. It was all up to me! Found all the makings for turkey soup and cornmeal muffins and a dessert and flew at it, making lunch, tidying and putting away, emptying and refilling dishwasher, setting the table. I was a White Tornado, Mr. Clean and Chef Boy-ar-dee all in one. Got 'er done, though, and we had a fine visit.
The weather has turned mild, so the past week's snow accumulation on the roof slid off--some of it onto the driveway, of course, so I had to shovel that. Shoveling was so pleasant I stayed out for three-quarters of an hour and shoveled more path-mazes for GS, in case he comes to visit this weekend. By then it was time to dreadmill my 5 k or I'd be off-target for my running training yet again and I don't want that. What I *want* is to work hard enough and run enough and eat little enough that I hit ONE HUNDRED FORTY-FIVE pounds this week, dang-it! Give me strength!
