I'm so tired today! I was fast asleep when my alarm jangled me awake, and I'm usually awake and up well before it goes off. Rich was shopping yesterday, all day, so I did all the chores, including cleaning the chicken coop again. I can't get the whole thing cleaned out by myself because the roosts are on hinges that lift up and hook to the ceiling and it's too heavy for me by myself, but I got the rest of it cleaned out. Underneath the roosts is still a mess and has to wait for Rich, who keeps SAYING he's going to go do it, but never manages it. I'm going to have to nag, and I hate nagging...
On the way home from shopping, Rich always stops at the Chinese place in Sturgis and gets dinner for us, but alas, they took off and went to China for their yearly month-long vacation, so the place was closed. Pickins are pretty slim (haha) in Sturgis, food-wise, so he got a frozen pizza at the grocery store and it was thawed by the time he got home. I baked it anyway, because I hadn't made dinner yesterday, and it was horrible. Limp and soggy. Even the less-than-stellar Chinese food would have been better than that pizza. Missy and Chicklet helped me eat mine, and they thought it was good, but they're a dog and a chicken so they'd think ANYTHING was good. Blech.
Anyway, I had just started evening chores when Rich got back home, so he brought in the house stuff and when I was done feeding and watering, I came in and put it all away, then we ate that godawful pizza. Well, it was better than nothing, and I don't have anything that I could fix "quick" for dinner. I need to can some soups and stuff for days like this. Soup and crackers would have been good. Oh, that's great, now I have ANOTHER project on my to-do list! But it needs to be done, and winter's the best time to do it, I'd best just get to it.
However, tonight I'm making that wonderful Zereshk polo (the rice thing with barberries, chicken, orange peel, and almonds). I LOVE THAT STUFF, and it will make up for the crap we ate last night.
Speaking of crap, does anyone else see the commercials for the CPAP cleaner things and think they say "CRAP CLEANER?" Every time one of those comes on, my brain sees "crap cleaner" and I think, "Man, I wish I had one of those!"
So I'm still tired, I have a headache (I took aspirin, but it isn't working) and I'm gonna go sit in front of the TV, let it mush my brain, and drink coffee. More coffee will probably help.
