Garam masala on chicken...chicken vindaloo in the crockpot. I forget what else I've used it in but I do love it.


Tackling Friday...I have an open day and would love to go for a hike but will probably hang at home instead.

Checking on garden.

Yard work.


Talk to my adult kids

Good morning!  It is all white outside!  Seems just about a year ago the same thing happened.  Weird April weather.


Big day today.  My kid is performing at the pre-game show for a pro basketball team.  It's really just an advertisement for her gym, but very exciting and a little intimidating for her.  Ya think?!  My challenge is to show up on time with everything she needs (uniform mainly).  And somehow get my work done AND get the house ready for a sleepover.  Then deal with family and hope a certain individual doesn't drink too much in front of the sleepover guest.  And hope Aunt Flo either waits longer to visit or behaves herself.  And hope nobody is sick or hurting come evening (gym kid twisted her ankle the other day, other kid has complained of headaches / feeling sick).  Other than that, no stress at all!

  • Kids up & off to school bus.
  • Send e-tickets to others coming to the game tonight.
  • Work.
  • Clean the house.
  • Arrange things for sleepover (probably put the mattresses down in the living room, change sheets.
  • A little reading and exercise.
  • Pack bag for the evening - gym uniform, sweats, whatever else ....
  • Thought about doing a load of laundry, not sure ....
  • Pick up kids at bowling.  Gym kid puts on uniform.  Sleepover kid's mom checks in and switches out bags.
  • Swing thru McD drive-thru so gym kid doesn't expire before the performance.
  • Gym kid to pre-performance practice.
  • Other kids to nearby shopping mall to kill some time.
  • Watch performance and game.  Probably eat stadium food for "dinner."  Chat with fam.
  • Possibly grocery stop?
  • Sleepover stuff at home.
  • Work?  Or sleep?  Who wants to lay bets?

I didn't get my co-op classes planned or much house cleaning done, but I did get a bit accomplished. 


Tomorrow we hand out water at the local soccer games inviting people to our church event on Sunday. We may go for a hike and to a movie tomorrow afterwards.

Haha. I didn't do hardly any of it.

Checked on seeds. Notta sign of sprouting. Bought more seeds. lol

The girls and I went out, spent the day together and they accompanied me while I bought some new work clothing. Yay. Thanks to my girls, I branched out and instead of buying black, dark green or navy blue, LOL, I bought mixes of red, orange, yellow tops and sneaked a navy blue in there. 

This is a good motivational thread though, thanks, Jean and other tacklers!
