OK, I Give~~~
Thanks to all for commenting on my misery.~~~I so agree with Paula, some things just don't seem so important anymore, well, maybe, except the family celebrations, for me., at least.
so, I'm thinking (painful sometimes), but it had to be done., maybe if I took a long winters nap, just maybe, I'd wake in a better frame of mind.
The house is quiet, so quiet that I could actually hear my wheels turning about in my wee little head. No hubby, no grandloves, no kids, no TV (literally), as the reciever for the sattelite dish took a dive today. Have you ever realized how wonderful peace and quiet can be?
A pause here while I thank Jack for letting me borrow his color-coded paragraphs without permission...
It seems that all I needed was a good snooze.~~~
Not only did I wake refreshed and ready to tackle another day, but I baked....all day long. The first thing on the cooling rack were two Pecan Pies,.....heaven help me, I had to look at them all day!
Next were two Pumpkin Pies....oh the spices of pumpkin pie......all that nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon~can you smell it yet?
Finally, a very scrumptious looking, 4, yes four pound Lemon Cheesecake. Oh Mercy!!! These guilt-free goodies guarantee drooling and satisfaction.
It is beginning to look like my family will eat turkey and all the trimmings after all. The Cranberry-Orange-Pecan Sauce is marrying it's flavors in the fridg, the Sweet Potatoes have been baked, whipped and waiting for the crumble topping and lots of butter. Onions and celery have been chopped for the dressing and
green beans have been blanched for the casserole. The dinner rolls are baked and ready to be warmed.
I guess I was looking foreward to pleasing my family after all. Our dinner will be a day early, but just as mouth-watering. There is little to do tomorrow. Once the bird is oiled with herbs and in the oven, only warming side-dishes and a prayer of thanks needs to be done to complete our meal.
I'm so happy to be out of this slump I had been in.
Life is goooood!~~~
