MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 258/262 – SEPTEMBER 15/19, 2013 – Playing Catch Up
Posted by Robert Edler
MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR SUNDAY TO THURSDAY, DAY 258 TO 262 OF 2013: Well, today I’m playing catch-up for all the days I missed this week. Little did I realize at the start of the week that I would receive a free-lance writing and design project that would keep me busy for half of the week. It was just a direct mail project … but when you haven’t been working in that mode for a while, it takes a while to get back in the groove again. So project was completed yesterday and delivered and accepted today. So now I have to get back into the blog mode again. I think the best way would be to give you a day by day rundown.
There has always been an abundance of September birthdays in my family. (Guess that means the birds and the bees were more amorous during the holidays.) So rather than having multiple individual birthday celebrations, the family get together for one big bash. That’s what we did Sunday afternoon at my nephew’s new house which is really a classic older house. (And very nice, by the way.) Food was barbecued meats and potluck sides and appetizers. (I created a new recipe for chocolate oatmeal cookies, and spent Saturday baking. I also made my South of the Border Eight Layer Dip.) So basically we spent the day talking, eating, playing games, taking pictures, and exchanging gifts.
This year’s top birthday cards.
And even though kids fail to get excited about adult antics,
they do find ways to keep themselves amused.
MONDAY – DAY 259: The morning after the day before.
Unfortunately, I made enough for three breakfasts. That’s my new birthday STL ZOO mug filed with hot tea. The extra pancakes were cling wrapped and stored in the freezer.
I did manage to get one weekend blog posted before I received the freelance job.
TUESDAY – DAY 260:
Had a really bad frozen dinner for dinner.
WEDNESDAY – DAY 261:
Breakfast was toaster warmed leftover pancakes with a scoop of maple/macadamia nut ice cream. So, I ran out of syrup.
Knowing that it would take me more than an hour to fold a new frog, I refolded yesterday’s frog to plug his ears. And you wouldn’t have know that if I didn’t tell you.
THURSDAY- DAY 262: Finally call caught up!
Actually, Mlle. Renee and I slept in this morning and didn’t crawl out of bed until 10:45. So I had brunch of a turkey club instead of breakfast. I also made Pork Sub Gum Chop Suey for dinner tonight.
