On the last day of my weekend

I started off the day by putting together Hearty Split Pea soup in my Crock-pot. I cooked it for 8 hours and it turned out fantastic! The recipe is a keeper.

I spent the better part of 4 hours gathering information in the quest for the next step for my parents. I didn't get far. It was mostly frustrating. I learned a lot. I left lots of messages. I'm really, really disliking this whole thing and wish I could wish it away.

I was about to take a shower around 1pm when I noticed two neighbors washing their cars. It inspired me to do the same. Then I swept out the garage. Then I noticed the bag of tulips I never planted and got them in the ground. Maybe they'll bloom, maybe not. It felt good to be outside doing something physical and getting fresh air.

Guess what I'm going to do next? I'm going to sit on the couch and start a book. That's the plan. There just might be enough hours in this day.

I should have washed my car. I don't think it's ever been so dirty before!
Hope you enjoyed your book.

Hi Cheryl,
Nice to see you are still blogging. Sorry I have not been by to visit in so long. Work and babies kinda does that too a girl. I'm dropping my aliases and starting fresh on Wordpress. I hope you will come visit me! I will try to come back more often.

Hmmm...I've never been a fan of pea soup, but that picture is leading me to possibly changing my mind.

Split pea soup, a clean car, a swept out garage, tulip bulbs put in the ground, a shower and a book! Sounds great to me. Sorry about the stuff with your mom and dad. I know it all weighs heavily on your mind.

Every time I think about washing the car the temps go near zero and I'm not in the mood to put up with frozen locks...so my dirty car will have to wait. (this excuse is as good as any...right?)
