Putting the Basil to Bed
Today has been very relaxing and productive. I got out my computer sewing machine and stitched embroidery patterns down the front of some blue linen blouses I am making for Ab before she goes back to school. Then I knitted for a bit and watched my cooking shows. Right now I am doing a little organizing of my Paula Deen recipes, typing a list in Excel so I can alphabetize them. I also cleaned out the library book bin and started reading another Georgette Heyer book. So far I have about 19 or 20 books in my collection, though several of these are in the mail from Amazon. I used to have a copy of A Civil Contract, one of my favorites, but it seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth, so I ordered another one.
Tonight I will watch my Japanese shows and knit some more. Not an exciting day, but my goal is to make it seem long, so I don't feel like work is taking over my entire life.
On Friday, after Vi and I did a map review, she told me to email Jeff and send him the review memo. I asked if he had the standard email address, which is email@example.com. Well, she forgot to tell me that Jeff uses his middle initial too, so I ended up sending the thing to another Jeff in Seattle, who promptly sent it back in a, I have to admit, not too snippy manner. It must be annoying to have someone else in the corporation with your same name.
Let's see, what should I cook for dinner tonight? I really want to just sit here and have someone else put a plate in front of me, with steak, baked potato and corn pudding and salad, but that is not going to happen now is it?
