i will have you know

it's 11-12-13 today


i love sequence dates!

but anyways

i was absent yesterday

mainly because i completely flopped on taking pictures this weekend.

but i will have you know

i hosted bill's family saturday for dinner and christmas name drawing for gifts

i will also have you know

i cooked beef stew

from scratch.

browned 2 lbs of beef cubes

peeled and cubed 6 potatoes

peeled and diced 12 carrots

peeled, sliced, and diced garlic and onion

and the icing on the cake?

i baked a cake.

from scratch.

carrot to be exact.

more carrot grating (bill volunteered to do that)

it was divine.

and there was, indeed, icing on the cake

cream cheese.

also made from scratch.

i wish i had taken a picture of it - because it was lovely.  i even put it on a cake stand

but, thankfully, there is no more cake - it was ate and sent home with others to be enjoyed.

i've been so tired the past few days

i barely stayed up long enough to eat dinner on the couch last night

before shuffling to bed.

i'm guessing it has to do with the fact that it's pitch black out by 6 pm

i'm in full hibernation mode.

i'm hoping to keep my eyes open a little longer tonight as i have a couple of books on my kindle that need devouring

anyone else having a hard time adjusting to the time change?
