Home Alone

Yesterday was my first day home alone...no husband, no kids, no job, no worries. Well, maybe not the last part. I always worry about something. My mother always said I had worry lines on my forehead as a baby.

I did get some things done...some cleaning, some cooking, some exercise, some reading.

We were expecting a 100° day yesterday. Ernest said it hit 101° just as cross country practice started. So I wanted to get my cooking out of the way before it got too hot. I baked enough chicken for 3 meals...roast chicken last night, green chicken enchiladas tonight, and maybe chicken chow mein in a day or 2. I've got to give them a break from chicken tomorrow night!

Cluck cluck cluck.


Homer feels he hasn't had enough press lately so he decided to crowd into my chicken picture. He also feels it is misleading to say I am home alone when he is such good company. Homer had a very successful day yesterday when he managed to con Handy into a second dinner at 6:00 while I was out of the house. "Meow meow, what? No I haven't been fed yet. Meow meow. I've been starving all day. Meow meow. " That lying cat. I fed them both at 4:30. And his accomplice, Francine, just went along with it.

100 degrees. Wow. That's rough. I hope you have AC.

We go through chicken phases too, but it's just so tasty that I can't seem to help it.

Ugh. The heat. I would totally do chicken popsicles for dinner except EEEEEWWWW! Chow mein sounds great. What time do you want us there? :-D

They are lucky you cooked! The best I can do in that heat is microwave a potato.

The Droid is far superior for talking on--my husband was iPhone and I was Droid; he actually ended up going back to the Blackberry because the iPhone was worthless for talking on.

I grill in that heat - it is hot outside while I am doing it but I can escape into the cooler house to eat!
