A Mad Dash to Quiet Time
Plans have been in flux every few minutes for the past couple days – last night, we went out to grocery shop and now my larder is no longer bare, and I feel much more comfortable.
Danny’s sister, who lives about 5 hours away, is selling him her car and was coming out here for the weekend, but then a serious of unfortunate events led to him and Jackie deciding instead to spend the weekend out there.
So – quiet time for me, and I did some rearranging on my menu plan to keep meals simple. Deanna is likely to be out and about for a good part of the weekend, now that it’s no longer below freezing and nasty outside.
I’m looking forward to some silence. I plan to listen to my ipod audiobook and do some deep cleaning (the sort I hate being interrupted or having people wandering around blithly undoing what I’m doing), nap as I like and otherwise enjoy life as a crazy old cat lady in peace.
