I figure one of the things I need to do to get myself back on track is to blog as often as I once did. So today, I have no idea where this blog will go, but I'm blogging :)
It is a drizzly day here in small town USA. Cold, damp, and definitely one of those days one wants to stay inside. This is perfect for the recluse in me :)
I will say I feel more like myself than I have in a very long time today and that is pretty wonderful. I had reached a point where I just didn't give a damn about much of anything lately and now I feel like I have the energy I once had again.
I've been working on housework and pie baking today. We're having our Thanksgiving dinner this week due to hubby's home time schedule. His home time this week also allows him to be home for our youngest son's 21st birthday :) Which is definitely a rarity considering the type of work hubby does.
So of course we must have my homemade pumpkin pies because the youngest son is definitely a pumpkin pie junky :) For so many years now he's only wanted my homemade pumpkin pies for his birthday. So we have two deep dish pumpkin pies, one crustless pumpkin pie, and two homemade cherry pies for dessert. Since I learned to make cherry pie filling I would rather make these homemade too :)
Tomorrow I begin cooking the rest of the meal. You know all the yummy goodies that go with a large dinner, ham, turkey, mac and cheese, baked beans, green bean bake, chicken and noodles, the works...
A week ago anticipating cooking this meal just wore me out to think about it. I haven't been up to cooking simple meals much less a huge dinner. Which was very out of my normal realm because I do enjoy cooking. Tonight as I sit here I'm actually excited about it which makes me very happy.
See what I really like about the up and coming day tomorrow is, I can get things cooking, work on my NaNoWriMo project and go back and forth between two of the things I enjoy most :) Then getting to spend family time and eat all the goodies will be even nicer :)
Well I guess I've bored you all long enough. I better get ready to clean up this mess for tonight so I can start fresh in the morning.
Everyone have a lovely night!!!
Blessings to all!!!
