Basically it's Thursday



We are a group of parents that chat and support each other.
We have been at this for a while so some of us are out of the diapering stage.
...some were out and are back in again.
Every once in a while we actually get to answer a diaper question or two in here.
If you are looking for a very diverse and open group come on over and chat.

Re: Basically it's Thursday

The ups and downs of life really do smack me in the face sometimes. I know....not really big important things but still, they are things that affect my life and so they are important to me.


The kids were up and had taken food and drinks into their room again (it turns out Derry was downstairs again this morning before 6am) *down*

then Cami got dressed in shorts and t-shirt after me telling her not to. *down*

Then Shannon got Fynn up and got the kids their meds *up*

(I was too distracted with thinking about other stuff I need to do today) *that should be a down but I felt good I wasn't going to forget the baking I have forgotten about for weeks...so it's an up*

While Shannon did that I measured out the stuff to make a pie and put it in the mixer. *up because I have everything I need*

Then the kids all disappeared downstairs (Derry and Fynn weren't dressed and none of the girls hair was done) for breakfast with Oma. *down*

The pie pastry turned out great. Totally uniform pastry! Light! Love having a stand mixer! MIL's recipe (500g flour, 250g marg, 130g sugar, 2 eggs), mixed everything except for the eggs for a while (well as long as it took me to go to the living room and get my meds because my watch beeped at me and it's always best to stop everything and take meds when it beeps or it could be hours before I notice that I haven't done it and the day is going to be BAD, walk back to the kitchen and take them with some water) and then added the eggs. Covered that and put it in the fridge. Got the fruit and put it in a sieve to drain (It's going to be a peach pie cos that is what I have enough of) and made a cup of instant coffee. *UP UP UP!*

Made Cami some lunch....nuttella sandwich, apple, banana, and a LF pudding. FIL will go to the bakery for Shannon and Fynn's lunch on the way to kindergarten. They love that but I dont let them get it too often. So it's not boring when I really don't have time to make food and really need to use the convenience of the bakery. *Up*

MIL tells me she'll get Fynn dressed downstairs. *up*

....now that's all done I can sit and drink my coffee. *UP*

I just put this pie in the oven.

It's my favourite pie but I never make it because it's too big for us and only Heiner and I eat it. I should get some foil pie tins and make a bunch from one recipe and freeze the extras. That'd work.

That pie looks fantastic, Janine! And I may not be a mathematician, but there are more ups in that list than downs, so I say run with it!

Can't wait to make pumpkin pie this weekend! Off to shower soon and then head to work. I am on the day shift today.

Yep!

Love it when the up beat the downs. The day isn't done yet but the morning was an all round win. The pie turned out good. I had several coffees with my friend and a nice chat. Derry got to play on a retro Nintendo.

She wants me to make another pie. We need to wait for the marg to defrost first. It was frozen. IDK if it'll get done but I'll try.

I still want to try pumpkin pie. I have have pumpkin spice (got it for my coffee) now so in theory I could make some.....

My friend woolly has put a new pattern out to help her commune. It's a cute retro beanie hat in heavy DK/worsted weight yarn. I just know all of the knitters here could make it. I'm hoping it's not seen as pushing but I'll leave the link here incase anyone wants to get it

Re: Basically it's Thursday

My hands are frozen, I was outside for two hours doing chores and holding horses for banding. DH finally agreed to send Lilo to the trainer for 30 days so I have to try on show shirts today to see what I will wear when I lead Mari in the ring for lead line. Envision my options.... bedazzled zebra print, bedazzled with flowers, or black bedazzled with fringe. Holla. I nixed the gray/black trimmed with fringe/cutouts for back/cleavage.
