No crazier than yesterday...

Just read a wonderful blog by Joey Joan, and decided to share the "thoughts" a step further...  Hope you don't mind!

I got up this morning, and after pulling on some comfy clothes, went to comb my hair in the bathroom.  While I did this, I thought that I'd best go get the newspaper, rather than have it "go missing" from my driveway.  As I passed the kitchen, I saw the coffee maker, and decided to make some, to have while looking at the paper.  Then, I headed towards the front door and noticed my keys on the table in the hall, and thought, I'd best put those with my wallet in the bedroom, or I won't be able to find them later...  I went to the bedroom to set them down, and saw that the bed was unmade, so I tidied it up  before I continued.  I heard the mail truck out front, so I went to pick up the mail.  As I opened the front door, I noticed the newspaper on the drive, and thought... "yes, I had meant to pick that up earlier."  I stepped out to the driveway, and my neighbor said "good morning," so I responded and went back inside.  I realised that I'd not put the dogs out yet, so I went to the side door, and let them into the back yard to "run a bit..."  While they were outside, I went to find the mail... I was SURE that I'd brought it in...  I looked on the table by the front door, but didn't see it.  The dogs wanted back in... so I opened the door for them.  It dawned on me that I was exhausted, but had no idea why...  Perhaps I'd better have some coffee to perk me up.  Much to my surprise, I saw the mug of coffee on the table.   I went to sit at the table, only to find that the coffee was COLD!  What had I done to tire me out so... I could not recall.  Now, where are my keys?  I was sure I'd seen them by the front door when I went out for the paper and brought in the mail!

(Laugh a little at myself, or I will go totally NUTS!)

Be happy, be healthy, and be CRAZY!

That was a bit like following myself around for the day except I don't have dogs. The point is... Oh! Look at the pretty flowers in the back yard!

manella, things I've learned... ALWAYS park in the same area at the grocery, AVOID malls, the "big box" stores, and IF YOU HAVE NO CHOICE, make a note just what dept. you step into when entering - assuming that you can remember long enough to shop, and exit! Also, it doesn't hurt to attach something totally FLAMBOYANT to your radio antenna that (hopefully) can be seen from a short distance... Best of luck finding it! Be well!

You just wrote the story of my how my days go. So funny and so true. I walk back and forth through my house all the time, because I can't remember why I went into the kitchen or the living room or the garage. I crack myself up!

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
