I am so tried that lifting my fingers to write this is taking effort. There is no reason to be this tired. It was a busy day but the busyness does not equal the exhaustion. I mowed the lawn and vacuumed all the window sills of dead summer flies and swept and washed the floor and did a load of laundry and hung it up. I packed up more summer stuff from outside and put it away. That’s it.
Ha. I wrote that yesterday and was too tired to continue.
It is rain, rain, raining today. Cold and rainy. I had planned to go to church today but decided to stay home. It makes me happy to finally go to a church where I don’t get in trouble if I don’t show up. Instead of going to church I stayed in my comfy sweats all day and watched Little House on the Prairie. When I was sitting I started thinking about all the apples I still have and decided to make a pie. I have never made a pie before except once with one of those frozen pastries you buy at the grocery store. The last time I made an actual pastry was when I was 17 in cooking class. That was 30 years ago. Let me tell you this. Pastry is not my thing and I almost failed the final cooking project because it was a pastry. It worked out after much fussing and I did get an A in the class but that pastry was almost the ruin of a perfect grade. I didn’t try pastry again until today. So far it appears to have turned out but I haven’t tasted it yet. It looks more or less like a pie but not fancy like expert pastry chefs can do. One thing I didn’t know is that making your own pastry takes a bo-billion dishes and the dishes take way more time than the making of it.
I have to words on the Kavanaugh thing. I will just say it is triggering me with emotions that I do not want to deal with today.
Here is a fact that you don’t know. If I won the lottery I would fill my basement with a train set that would go through each room and have the miniature village to go with it. So there ya go. Now you can say you learn something everyday.
