And to top it off, it's PAYDAY!!!
And as my usual routine, I sit for a moment and think about just blowing my whole paycheck and just ball ball ball til I fall fall fall.
And then reality kicks in...
And I go online and pay my bills. And then I make a budget in my head. I need to write it down on paper, though. Really, I need to.
Anyway, the weekend is nigh... and on days like this, especially on paydays, the blinds of my mind are partially closed. I may as well just go home because I haven't gotten anything done. My boss sent me something to look over, some type of checklist for our reports. I think I breezed through that in all of 10 minutes and made some suggestions.
Plus, I can't even think straight because I have the "itis".
And I want to take a nap.
Because we had our FALL FESTIVAL at work today.
The tobacco and nutrition groups do this yearly. And since I am new to the tobacco work group, lo and behold I get to participate.
A menu sign-up list went around. Discussions were fast and furious for a few days. And we had a wonderful feast!
I signed up to bring green beans and butter cookies!!
And you know I took pictures:
I purchased green beans at the local Whole Foods. Here they are in the bags.
And it took a full hour to snap them.
By 9:30 pm, I'd chopped up a large white onion, thrown in a smoked turkey wing, and threw everything in the crock pot.
By 8:00 am, the green beans were done!
And I also made some butter cookies. I experimented with cutting them into shapes...
On to our Fall Festival.
There was SO much food. So much.
Meatballs, cocktail sausages, honey baked ham...
Fruit and pies!
Someone made red velvet cake. I am not a fan, but you KNOW how much people love red velvet cake. Glory!!
A good time was had by all.
Dr. HazelEyes organized it all. There was even a jeopardy trivia game while we ate.
And after all that, I could and still cannot get much of anything done today.
I need a siesta... maybe two, maybe three.
Heck, I need a weekend!
And that's what I'm snatching... on purpose.
That's it for today. Soooo picture heavy!
Bet it made you hungry, didn't it!?
Have a good weekend. :)
