Yep, you read that right, I said I.AM.COLD.IN.ARIZONA!!!! How's that for an opening statement????
It's been raining and today it's cloudy and I feel chilly, I should be shocked or in disbelief and I mean I am a little, but it reminds me of Idaho so I'm happy. See I'm easily pleased!
I've been bad with updating my blog but in my defense, it's been hard to type with the pain in my wrist. It's doing much better and one of the cysts is completely gone, the bigger one is taking a little longer but that's fine, it's nice to be able to bend my wrist without seeing these huge balls sticking out, it was yucky and I'm sure not very nice to look at LOL
Remember how I told you that usually when I'm not feeling well or in pain is when I get the urge to cook??? It's really something because you would think I would not put myself through that but for some reason I just do, so I was craving some jam and decided to get to work on it. I did!!! I ended up with 5 jars of the yummiest jam I've had in a long time.
The best was Curt and the kid's reactions, I handed them a slice of bread with jam on it and they started eating and ooohing an aaahing, then I casually threw in there "I made it". The chewing stopped and they all looked at me like I had grown a second head, maybe they thought the pain medication for the wrist was getting to my head LOL
There's nothing like making something in your kitchen and getting a big thumbs up!
Right now I have Orange Chicken cooking away in the crockpot, have I told you lately
It really does make things so much easier and I know that I'm a stay at home mom, but even we have days that we're not feeling well, or had surgery or are in pain or whatever the case may be, could even be that we just want to spend the day with the family without worrying about sitting in the kitchen fixing a meal. Thank you to the Rival product designer that invented the crockpot back in the 1970's........you have no idea how much you've helped us all.
It's a lazy day for me, I don't feel like doing anything and we're planning on staying home, watching movies and doing absolutely nothing. Those are usually the best days I think, you forget about the time, there's no schedules to keep, no school and work or appointments, no need to get things done by a certain time......it's just an easy day all around, meals are leftovers or whatever you feel like, you want to nap...go for it.......read, play on the computer, play with the kids, whatever, just do it.
So I'm heading out, all I have to do today is run to the library to return movies but come on, who could call that a chore or an errand really??? I love the library so it's a reward for me, I did a great job all week on the house, I reward myself with a couple books...........for me personally there is nothing better than a book, makes me giddy, there's something about opening it up and not knowing what to expect, smelling the pages, feeling the corse paper on your fingertips....yes it's pure heaven!!!
