Busy busy...

I have been very busy with mom, projects and travel so much so that I did not realize I have not posted for a long while.

Healthwise I am fine. There is so much to be done. I feel a bit overwhelmed. I took mom to her home last Friday and came back yesterday. Now I can structure my days around project responsibilities.

In fact, I have been working all morning. Took a break to put a roaster in the oven and check on some blogs while having a light lunch. The bird will provide quiet a few meals and I will make stock using the carcass.

Tonight, I am having roast chicken with broccoli and mashed potatoes. I will also make some gravy to go with it. My favorite combination. Yumm...

I will have to plan what to do with the rest of the chicken. Some will be had with rice. I have some rice left and I need to use it up before buying a new bag.

A pot of soup is in the plans too. I think, I will freeze some of it for salads,sandwiches or small pot pies for one later on. I do not think, I can be eating chicken every day.

I have finished my tea as I typed this so, it is time to go back to work.


  1. Don't work too hard, remember you are supposed to be mostly retired lol.

    1. So true! Mom says the same thing but I am sure, there will be no work in the summer. I can rest and enjoy the season then.

  2. I love making soup and freezing it, great for a quick meal when I don't feel like cooking. Sounds like retirement & contract work is agreeing with you!

    1. Thanks Jan. I like this state of being semi-retired.

    1. I like roast chicken and turkey. If done right, it is super tasty and juicy. Broccoli is one of my favorite veggies too.
