Busy, busy, busy

I owe you an Eco-Saturday. Sorry ’bout that; I promise I’ll make it up to you with a double helping this week. The last couple of weeks have been crazy. I worked 12 consecutive days (including 85 hours in one seven-day stretch), visited my family, replaced my cellphone (if we’re close and I haven’t given you my new number, email me, and I’ll update you), and then came down with a nasty 24-hour bug that flattened me Sunday night and forced me to spend Monday in bed. I hate getting sick, but it was probably the only way I was going to get the rest I desperately needed after the last couple of weeks, so I’m not going to grumble too much.

I had some good intentions about picking up groceries tonight, but I was still a little shaky when I woke up this morning, and after covering a meeting and filing two stories today, I was pretty well tapped out, so I just cleaned out the refrigerator, loaded the dishwasher and made myself a batch of butternut squash soup out of some steam-in-bag squash I found in the freezer. It turned out well and will probably be this week’s Vegan Friday offering.

I am pretty sure I am going to spend the rest of my evening curled up on the couch, listening to Joni Mitchell on vinyl. Unless I give up and crash early, which is looking increasingly likely.

Hope you’re having a good evening, wherever you are.
