How To & Tidbits

How to tell if the chicken, you put in the fridge last week and promptly forgot about, is off. Open the bag and try not to throw up due to the smell.

Today I did something I wouldn't normally do. I told a friend that she couldn't come over. I did have valid reasons.
1. I was exhausted mentally and physically from seemingly constantly hosting people in our house and keeping them amused
2. I had work to do, deadlines to fill and uninterrupted concentration to partake of.
3. I was getting behind in the housework due to seemingly playing host every day and night.
4. I needed quiet time.

I sorta feel bad, but not a lot, from saying no to her but then I have stuff to do and today was a free day. Hubby is at work, the sis-in-law and her hubby are out checking out the city, the kids were watching cartoons (winding down also) and I had deadlines to fill, personal ones.

One of the things I completed today, hopefully or near completion that it will only take a few minutes to finish up, was my advanced cookery lesson 1. It is 4 pages and now awaiting for the editor to check it out, whip out his metaphorical red pen and highlight mistakes.
I enjoyed doing it because I was able to tap into my memory banks and put it out onto paper in a language I think I understand (childrens language).

I didn't get the filing done, I haven't folded the laundry yet, or even taken yesterdays off the line but it can all wait. I have a computer free weekend coming up due to hubby's 30 hr LAN! I think I can fit in a bit of gardening at that time also, maybe a little sketching too.
