These past few days have been extremely busy and I haven’t been able to participate in reverb10 like I wanted. Instead, what I want to write (and still had no time to write) is what I did on my unexpected day off Thursday.
Originally, I thought I would have time to create the post on Thursday. Instead I worked until 11 to get everything done. I have to say though. I got a lot done.
Let’s go back in time and pretend it’s Thursday.
I woke up and ran downstairs to check the closings just in case. Nothing. I got ready and headed to school only pull into a completely empty parking lot. I know I arrive early but not that early. I called home. Mom checked and ten minutes after I had first checked a two hour delay had been posted so I headed back home.
An hour later after spending the entire time on finances I discovered that the two hour delay had turned into a full day off. I can’t express how happy I felt. I spend 2 hours on finances and then moved slowly into wrapping presents. Like this monstrosity that took me 20 minutes to wrap! (Yes Dad. It’s yours.)
Then I started baking. First I made peanut butter cake for Dad. (Do you have it yet?)
Then I had a lot of fun taking this:
Next I finished mixing up the dough for Mama Pea’s Christmas Cookie Dough Balls. (For the recipe visit peasandthankyou.com . Eventually I will figure out how to post links in the text.)
I spent hours listening/watching to various shows like People’s Court, Tyra, Judge Judy, Everybody Loves Raymond and etc (yes, this took me quite a while) rolling the dough into little balls.
Lastly I made a dailygarnish.com ‘s Peanut Banana Raisin Bread. (She made it first with chocolate chips and so did I. I wasn’t a big fan of chocolate chips so I tried it with raisins this time. I think I will like it even better next time when I use craisins. The raisins just didn’t have much taste.)
I ended the night with my least favorite part. Taking care of this:
Over all I am so glad that I had a day off. Now I am on vacation for real. I’m not sure how I will make up the reverb10 posts but I intend to spend some time on them so expect quite a few entries in the next few days.
