I didn’t think it was really a long week, until this evening.
At around 2:00 today, I could barely keep my eyes open. My eyelids felt like they weighed 1,000 pounds each. With just an hour left at work, I was able to power through, but any longer and all bets would have been off.
As soon as I got home, my first and only stop, was my bed. I laid down, gave the dog a belly rub to release a bit of stress, and fell almost immediately to sleep. My thought was to just take a short nap. Over an hour later, I woke up and honestly, I could have gone back to sleep and slept through to tomorrow.
However, as every parent and spouse knows, dinner and other chores don’t get themselves done. There was a new macaroni and cheese recipe I had planned for dinner, had to clean the veggies I harvested last evening, and I had a peach pie to make while the peaches were still fresh.
All of those things got accomplished. Well, the pie is in the oven right now. I’m hoping it comes out okay as I tried a pie crust recipe from a new cookbook. The dough didn’t feel like it usually does. This recipe called for a mixture of lard and butter. Hopefully the lard will add some flavor and will have a nice flakiness to it.
Now I’m just going to sit back and watch an episode of a random cooking show, then an episode of Sex and the City.
