  • the rice salad is cooked, dressed and cooled and almost ready to be refrigerated
  • Tony has left ( last minute grocery list in hand) plus he will begin HIS gift shopping now
  • Geni and Leonnie are BOTH still asleep ( or hiding behind closed bedroom doors to avoid cleaning!! and reading instead)
  • I have grated carrot and sliced celery finely. he rest of the salad things must wait

  1. gosh you make me hungry!! lol

    I made a roast. We’ll have a German specialty “Spätzle” with it, plus either potatoes or rice. I’ll whip up a simple iceburg salad plus a fruit salad.

    I did no baking, no even an apple pie which I would normally make (from scratch).

    We are only 3 adults and one baby so not that much needed anyway…. and we’re not big eaters.

    P.S. I tried to answer your photo question in my journal *wink*

    I hope you find time in between to RELAX!! {hugs}
