Managed to get through my 10 a.m. conference call and now the balance of the day is mine (since it is a work holiday),
Naturally I didn't accomplish near what I thought I might over the weekend. Not much knitting (though I am about half-way done the foot on Colin's sock), almost no reading (don't understand this one at all). I did do laundry and we did grocery shop and the Christmas tree is out of the house and decorations are put away, and I did cook some.
Saturday I made Spicy Cuban Beef which we had over rice and steamed broccoli alongside.
Yesterday I cooked one of those pre-seasoned pork loins. Ours was peppercorn and pretty tasty. I made smothered cabbage to go with it - had never made this before and LOVE it.
Today a pot of split pea soup is on the stove. There is left over cornbread that I made last week, so that will be dinner.
My car is in the shop today for inspection. Got the phone call shortly after 8 a.m. this morning that it will be $1.6K to fix. YIKES! Something is up with the suspension, I need rear breaks and then a bunch of other things (I kind of tuned out the guy when he was talking). The good news is that no tires are needed and they can do everything today, so I'll get the car back this afternoon. I just had not planned on/counted on a bill this high.
I hope to start "Sing, Unburied, Sing" this afternoon. I'm giving up on "The Roanoke Girls" about 1/3 into it. I'm just not enjoying it and there are far too many books out there that I do want to read.
That's the news from here. It is cold again (very) and snow is in the forecast for tomorrow and maybe Wednesday. This Winter.....it just keeps going.....
