yesterday was a disaster but today, totally not a disaster

Wednesday October 21, 2009

Sometimes I go into the depths of despair.
And it is not pretty when I am there.
Mostly I just want to sleep, not talk, and be left alone.

Yesterday, was a total disaster. On top of my bummer mood I broke one of these iittala glasses and didn’t even cry. I was already in the depths of despair and crying was just not necessary.

Luckily late that afternoon Jake motivated me to start picking up the house (it had gotten messy because, well, let’s face it, who cares about dirty dishes and dust when there are more important things to do, like SLEEP).

It turned out to be just the spark I needed!

Of course, by the end of the night I was dusting the tops of window sills and rearranging all the plants.

I woke up this morning and knew it was going to be a better day. Even with the rain.

Listen to what I have done today -

*  Baked a pie pumpkin for the first time ever.
*  Pureed the pumpkin and separated into 2 cup portions to freeze for future pumpkin pies.
*  Chopped carrots, celery, potatoes, onions, garlic and threw it all in the crock pot with a roast and some rosemary. Should be ready for dinner tonight.
*  Had 1/2 cup left over pumpkin puree. Googled it. Found this pumpkin creme brulee recipe that called for exactly 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree. I have never made creme brulee but ohhhhh do I love creme brulee! Should be ready for dessert tonight.
*  Had 3 left over egg whites from the brulee, so Jake fried some bacon and made himself some lunch.
*  Oh AND I washed every pot and pan we own and did the rest of the dishes. And guess what? I have already put them ALL away!

I feel very productive and full of deliciousness. Today is definitely not a disaster.

My change of mood came just in time for the official last day of my twenties — which is TOMORROW.
