Remember when a day off meant relaxing?

Yeah, me, either... Now, a day off means chores. We decided to invite an old friend over for dinner tomorrow night, so that meant I had to do some housecleaning today. I'd sort of gone easy the last couple of weeks, but today I dug in and cleaned. Honestly, the house looks and (more importantly) smells great. The carpets are clean, the floors are polished and while it isn't impossible to find dust, let's just say it's harder than it was earlier today. In addition, the laundry is done and that includes rugs, towels and bed curtains. The kitchen is clean and all the dishes are done and put away. I am ready for tomorrow.

We decided that we are going to start with pot stickers, then shrimp bisque, Normandy Chicken Fricassee, pasta and then baked apples and port to follow. Happily, the pot stickers and pasta are already done and I will do the bisque in the afternoon. The apples will be ready to go and stuck in the oven during dinner. It will even be cool enough for a fire, the first of the season. :D

So anyhow, that's been my day. Now I'm just waiting for TBG to get up from his nap (and before you worry, I've had two today), and we are going to hang up some paper jack-o'-lanterns from the front trees. After that, I want to go to the shed to get the heated cat bed for the outside cats and then out to Wally World for some water and cat food before heading out to dinner.

I hope everyone else has had an equally kick ass day. Make it yours, my friends.
