Friday, December 7th, 2007 • 1 Comment on Nesting Season
I said I was in a nesting mood and I meant it. I had another restless/sleepless night last night and have felt rundown all day, so I decided to just stay in and take it easy. Of course, I can’t “take it easy” when I have a ton of work to do. I didn’t get a lot of writing done, but I did get the house cleaned up a little bit, worked on my laundry, did a pile of dishes and took care of some teaching and writing administrative stuff like contracts and e-mails.
I also did some baking! I’m not even close to being in the same league as Jennifer who manages to bake enough to feed a small village in the span of a mere afternoon, but this evening I baked chocolate chunk brownies, maple pecan brownies with maple sugar drizzle and chocolate fudge. I also packaged up a bunch of those goodies to send to Jay (and class) and Sheri. There is still plenty left, though. I love to bake, but it’s dangerous to do such things alone. Case in point: my dinner consisted of one chocolate chunk brownie, one maple pecan brownie (pre-drizzle—I wanted to see if they were any good) and a piece of chocolate fudge. Not the most nutritious meal… but yummy!
I had hoped to start some holiday cards tonight and maybe put some decorations on the Christmas tree and watch Grey’s Anatomy, but the night got away from me. Oh well. Maybe tomorrow. I don’t think this nesting urge is going away anytime soon.
