I generally do dishes while attending to cooking but I guess I was too tired. Did a rack full this morning. Will do more tonight. The others are dry and put away. Did laundry/changed the bed yesterday and all is put away. Today was foraging, hot bath, relaxation, pick up bag of produce from farm. Soaked feet also; my left foot encountered a baseboard heater on Sunday night, in the dark. It hurt! In the morning, I discovered it had opened some skin and foot was swollen badly. I had to unbuckle that strap on Birkie. Still very sore and swollen. Same one that broke almost 3 years ago - so still twinges from that plus swollen. Today I could walk; Mon and Tues, I hobbled.
Supper is half ready: cauliflower cooked; will cook cranberry/maple sausages, add jar of spaghetti sauce and use cauliflower as pasta. will do more dishes while keeping an eye on cooking! Watched two hours of TV; hot bath does take some recovery. It was a lovely day - well, warmish and not raining -yet! But I did not get last plants into ground. Hopefully tomorrow - it is to be warmish but might rain, however, must get it done as the temp is dropping on Thurs!
Need to figure out how to teach English to this poor woman from Russia. She wants so much to learn - she says; but I am not sure how long she remembers what I have said. She is only 68... I am becoming concerned.
Soon November and I have "planned" to have an open house for pottery in November - like SOON! Maybe I can set it up this week, go to Beaver for a week and have it the following week. Tomorrow...
And another pot of soup! R likes the pureed soup because his teeth are bad; I like it because the flavours of all the veggies are blended so I do not get a bite of something I am not fond of.
