A rare day – Vince is not coming home for lunch and he isn’t coming home for dinner. He left home this morning at 5:30 so you can bet that by the time he gets home tonight, he’ll sit in his chair, I’ll hand him a glass of wine, we’ll talk for a while and he’ll soon be immersed in something on TV or . . fall asleep.
So, I have at least from 5:30 til probably 7 or so to do whatever I want to do. My choices . . unless something else grabs my attention:
- Start a pot of spaghetti sauce – The sauce will simmer for 5 hours but there are meatballs to be made and lots of getting up and stirring to be done so that will probably get ruled out.
- Start a pot of gumbo – A chicken has to be boiled, roux made, lots of veggies chopped, and then than will sit and simmer for a long time but, it’s labor intensive for a few hours so that will probably get ruled out.
- Sit in my chair and knit, stopping to spend a little time on the spinning wheel.
Any guesses as to what my choice will be?
A good friend mentioned going out for lunch but I think I want to spend the day in my sweats and not leave the house!
