Vince comes home for lunch every day. He’s home a little after 11 and since lunch is our main meal, I try to make it a decent meal (instead of a cold sandwich) . I usually go over to the sewing room shortly after 7 and spend an hour or two knitting with Boots, then come back to the house and get lunch going by 9:15 or so. Vince leaves about noon and by the time I clean the kitchen,
take a nap, go out and make a trip around to check on the chickens and see if anything needs watering, come back in and get laundry going, or do a bit of ironing, or clean the bathrooms, then I go back over and knit for a couple of hours with Boots and then it’s time for Vince to be home from work.
I don’t know why I think I should have ALL day to do what I want to do just because Vince isn’t coming home for lunch. It isn’t like I spend ALL day getting lunch done. Today was one of those rare days when he wasn’t coming home for lunch. I knew I needed to fix something yummy for lunch yesterday so I would eat leftovers today because I’m not much of a fan of leftovers. I made crawfish etouffee for lunch yesterday and all morning, I could hardly wait to have leftovers for my lunch. I stirred up some coleslaw and sat and ate while watching The Grocery Girls’ podcast.
Not surprising I suppose . . I haven’t had nearly as much knitting time as I had hoped to have. I’ve been in the sewing room almost all day. I came back to the house several times to transfer clothes to the dryer and get another load going. I’m going to spend the next hour or so ironing and then try to get in another hour of knitting before Vince gets home.
Days go by too quickly when there’s so much I want to get done . . never enough time!
