Life has been insanely busy the last six weeks or so. We've been out of town almost every weekend, have had friends visiting from out of town or, the rare weekend day that I've been home, has resulted in frantic attempts to catch up on things (think laundry, scrubbing toilets, etc.).
Cooking has been few and far between. Oh, I'm getting dinner on the table, but it's usually a broiled steak or opening a package of pre-cooked shrimp, throwing it on some lettuce and calling it a salad. I have a stack of cooking magazines dating back to September that I'm still trying to get to (which are stacked on the October and November versions which have already been delivered).
But...though I am dead tired, pounding my head against the wall screaming for some down time, and it means taking up even more time trying to learn a new electronic gizmo, I am happy. Because I now own one of these.
The crazies will not stop. Currently my next free weekend is the second weekend in December and, well, I'm sure some Christmas activity, be it shopping or party, will take up the remaining weekends until the new year. But again, that's okay, because I have a new toy to play with (as does Mr. L). It makes not cooking almost worth it.
