As in: too lazy to bother with a picture today.
As in: too lazy to create anything worthy of said picture.
Actually, I’m not sure that “lazy” is the word I’m looking for, but none other comes to mind so it will have to do. Uninspired, perhaps? Yeah…that might be closer to the mark. Yesterday was the real lazy day (but guess what? I couldn’t manage to chronicle it so here we are a day later. Case in point!). I did manage to read most of a book, and since the boy was cooperating, that was pretty much the meat of the day.
Oh, and we did go to the post office to mail the bills and movie.
For some reason, when my brain goes into hibernation like this, I tend to want to do two things (in theory): bake, and sew things that I’ve already made before. I had the sudden urge to crank out some potholders, mostly because I was inspired by something I saw on some kitchen linens in Target last week. But wait: do I need any potholders? Is anyone getting married in the next six months? No? Then it might not be the best time to stock up on them. What I need to do is work on the baby gift that I need for a shower next week, but that’s next week, so…. Yeah—best not to rush right in. And as for the baking, well, that’s not in anyone’s best interest either. I parse out portions for anyone within reach right away, and still I end up eating most of the goods myself. Slowly, mind you, over the course of several days, yet cake twice a day (for several days) is still a heck of a lot of cake. Besides, I couldn’t bake from the couch, so that was out, too.
I’ve started a list, though, so my hopes are high for next week. Yes, I’m already looking to next week; it’s going to be that kind of week, I can tell.
Hey, this brings me to sort of an off-topic question, though. What kind of things do you like to prepare when you’re bringing a meal to another family/household/what have you? For that matter, what types of meals are you happy to receive? I ask this because I have a little bit of a panic attack when I think of preparing meals for other people. I mean, I like to cook, other people have liked things I’ve made, but if I don’t know the family all that well…it makes me really nervous. In fact, I shy away from doing it at all except when it comes to family, even though I’d like to. So come on—dish about your favorite dish!
