A Day Off
I had mental plans for today. Nothing concrete mind you but things I thought I should do.
Brian hijacked me. He thought I needed a day away. He was right I think. We went to Cottonwood to the Mount Hope Organic Store. I needed to buy currants and poppyseeds. For some reason you can't buy currants in the grocery store. I needed currants. For some things you can't substitute raisins for currants. Brian wants some poppyseed cookies and though I have some, they get stale fast. The organic store sells them bulk so you can buy as many or as little as you like. I needed about a cup for two projects. They were only 25cents an ounce. I also bought some fresh ground ginger. I wanted crystalized ginger but they were out of it. I think I can get it at the oriental store.
We stopped and had a sandwich, We went to Camp Verde and then we came home. I did feel better, not as rushed. It reminded me that things will still get done and I do need time off now and then.
Tomorrow, I will work at the library in the afternoon and we have all day plans for Saturday so maybe on Sunday I will finish the tree and then take some pictures. Then, I will have to dig through my basket and find the directions for making them smaller and loading them to photo bucket and then to this site.
Dan laughs at my filing system. He thinks I should put things in order and I wouldn't have to sort through the basket everytime I want something. I bought a book to write everything in but of course I haven't had time to transfer things to the book. I suppose I must be getting slower as I get old. It's not true that you are only as old as you feel. some days I don't feel old and some days I feel older than I am. It's good to do something entirely different for a day.

Those poppyseed cookies sound mighty tasty dooley. A possible recipe for the Recipes forum I think :)
