EARLY EVENING END

Evening sunshine swung down and is shining low through our windows. Everything is lit and glowing. The horse out back is outlined in fire, limned in a rosy halo. I snuck out the back onto the porch, camera in hand, and he tossed his head and took off to the other end of the field. Camera-shy, I suppose.

Anders and the kids went to Maria's for dinner, mostly because her husband owns a welding torch and Anders has plans for several motorcycle pieces. I opted to stay home and continue my downtime day. :) That's a good thing, not a bad one. I've been pretty accomplished, knocking off laundry, dishes, the bathtub, the entire refrigerator* (how the HELL does it get that dirty!?) and cleaning up the entire kid's department. Now I need to get some work done on the AWC site, but otherwise, the evening is mine, mine, all mine!

Yummy Recent Things With Eggs: Deviled eggs (today), toads-in-the-hole (last week), and that omelette that I think needs a repeat.

File Under "The Grass Is Always Greener": Clock

I have a meeting with my boss tomorrow to talk about work. My list so far: No, I don't like the open landscaping. No, I don't think I'm getting used to it. No, I don't think I'll ever get used to it. No, I'm not sure what to do about it. No, I don't think working from home is the answer, quite honestly, even 1 day a week. sigh
