I woke up on Saturday at 8:30 AM (I stayed up a bit too late, watching a movie). I warmed up a cup of coffee and posted to the blog. I totally wasted yesterday and, yes, I do feel a little bad about it... on the other hand, maybe not!
But today's a new day. I shaved and showered and made some breakfast. Then I started to clean the house up a bit. My friend B___ called and we caught each other up on our respective Thanksgivings. One interesting tidbit he had was that it would be over 40 degrees and sunny today. He suggested if I still had any yard work left to do, I should do it now because it's supposed to snow Sunday afternoon.
So, since I do have leaves left, I started getting dressed to go out and mulch them. But, the phone rang and it was my daughter Melissa. We chatted for too long (we always do) and then I went outside. I used the blower to get all the leaves out of the gardens, off the porch, and off both rear patios. I was able to cut the front and side lawns thoroughly, but I had to turn on the headlights by the time I got out back.
I didn't cut all the grass out back; I just mowed the leaves around the house. I put the mower and blower away and coiled up the 100 foot extension cord. Then I closed everything up for the night.
I took out two deep dish pie crusts to thaw, while I cubed some redskin potatoes and carrots. I boiled those until they were tender, adding in some frozen green beans at the last minute. I drained them and then added my turkey leftovers and a jar of turkey gravy into one pie pan. I used the other dough to cover it and baked it until it was golden brown. Then I ate about half of it for dinner. I like turkey pot pie!
I watched some TV but eventually switched to reading. I went to sleep about 10:30 PM.
