Well, much of what I had planned yesterday didn’t happen. This time I can’t blame MS. I felt perfectly fine, but I made the mistake of watching the weather report on the news. I just didn’t feel like going out in temps in the teens. I am a coward! So, after my husband had some lunch, he lined up the ingredients I needed, and I made a cake. The house smells so nice when I bake – and this time the aroma was chocolate!!
I’m freezing all my baked goods, and I’ll frost everything that needs it before I deliver the goodies to my daughter. Originally, I planned to take the baking down to her house this Sunday, when we went for the little guy’s birthday. But I think I may take a ride down on the 6th. That way she won’t be looking for places to store my things.
As for sofa shopping, I think I’ll wait until Friday. I’m hoping the weather may be a little warmer. I’m limiting the stores to two – both of which are fairly close. I’m looking for a very neutral beige. I have that color in the carpet, and it can go with us when we move. (Whenever that will be!!) Since the main color in my living room and dining room is blue, I’ll use accent pillows to bring out the color. I already have colors chosen for all my other rooms that will need repainting before we sell. I’m trying to keep away from bright colors and staying with neutrals.
Today is cold again, so I’ll stay inside for the fourteenth day in a row! I’m going through my recipes to see what I’ll bake, but I think I’ll go with apple pie. Tomorrow, I’ll be cooking for my boys, so I’m not sure if I’ll bake. If I do, it will probably be cookies. That way, I can use it as a dessert plus another baked good. I also have to get a lot of non-perishable foods in stock. Our church will be doing a big collection on Sunday to go along with other churches in stocking area food banks. I’m sure their supplies have dwindled this winter with the awful cold.
So, despite a change in plans, I still got some things completed. That makes me feel as if I’ve accomplished something and my spirits remain up.
