Corn chowder was loved by all and there is enough left for hub's dinner tonight.
I took out chicken breasts from the freezer, chicken Parmesan will use 2 quarts of tomatoes from storage,breadcrumbs, and Parmesan cheese, and spaghetti as a side. I will make more sauce than needed and use it for some other dish later.
January blahs are setting in, with the long dark days of overcast skies and fog. I really am grateful for the rain we had last weekend but could it not have been on the week days? I read of many bloggers who fight the January blues. I try to stay busy doing something useful, but even that gets old. It seems like the same old , same old day after day. Life just gets monotonous. I think we all need to see January a little differently. Like a rest from the holidays. A rest from the spending and running. A time to regroup and set new priorities. (notice I didn't say goals?) I have noticed that this year is a little better, and it is already the 20th, so maybe I will conquer my dread of January before I get much older.
Hub's worked hard in the yard yesterday. Maybe too hard. I called him in about 12:30 to eat some leftover potatoes that I had hashed with onions and eggs. He has essential tremors which are getting worse with age. But his hands were shaking so bad he could not hold a fork and get food to his mouth. He finally resorted to eating with his fingers. Then I made him go take a nap as he had been up since 6, spending most of his time in the yard.
I got busy with sewing and forgot about my chowder and scorched the crap out of it. Luckily I remembered just in time and was able to save the majority by not scraping the bottom of my pot and transferring to another. Oops!
I really enjoyed my Celtic class last night, I just love those kids. Actually I love all my students, I just want to squeeze and hug them. I have calls into the school district to set up times to take them out on St. Paddy's day.
Today is my typical day, of sewing, and cleaning and cooking, and I think I will add a load or two of laundry and then the dreaded paying of bills. All before I go to the studio. I need to be there at 4 today. So I had better get a move on, as I have a lot to do.
What have you done to get over the January blahs? Is it something you struggle with?
