Good morning;

today, i

- stayed in bed a little longer (delegated to DH the getting the two eldest children up) ... that was a sort of private celebration of school starting and avalability of a little bit more "me time"

(i really seem to have some sort or ADD that gets far worse when i'm in company ...)

- took DD2 to school

- went for my mammogram & ductal sonogram = all is well, for which i'm thankful and overjoyed

it was a new doctor (not so many do the "ductal" thing) but really nice, explained well, answered all my questions etc ...

- went to the store to pick up stuff & it's just been delivered & i've put it away

- sent an e-mail, wrote a post

- have started a load of laundry, still need to put it up to dry

- need to stop browsing the internet and seriously review my dance routine for tomorrow lunchtime !!!!!

- prepare whatever i need to take with me (i sew during a group talk there is in my neighborhood this afternoon, i need the stuff for tomorrow lunchtime & my sewing machine is presently at the repair shop )


... i suppose i'll do my chores of the day after 5:00  pm !!!

dropped off some books at the used bookstore - that box has been sitting in my dining room for over a month!  Today I had the car so I made sure to get it done!

dropped off a box of stuff at goodwill-  ditto above ^^^^^


Late last night swept and vacuumed the living room and dining room (after husband rearranged our living room)


SO much more left to do, but it will have to wait until tomorrow!  Hope I can keep my momentum going!

Hey Isafrench, what is whitebait?
I worked today. Most everyone worked. It's not a holiday here.
I plan to do nothing more than put out the trash. And relax the rest of the evening.

whitebait is very small fish (one to two inches maximum) that you fry whole (tail & head, non gutted) ... i think it's delicious .... it was a bit heavy to digest though since i had covered the pan with oil (i don't have anything for deepfrying) & am not sure how i'm going to fare on Monday (am on a weight loss thread ....)

Oh wow, whitefish are tiny! How interesting. That sounds like a nice, simple recipe (just my kind).
