» Friday, December 18, 2009Perking Up a Rainy Day
So what did I have planned for today? Thinking about walking around Marietta square and getting the car washed.
Well, so much for that. Everything's awash out there. Rain pounding down so hard that I used an umbrella to fetch the trash barrel from the curb. I usually don't pay attention...as I used to tell my mom when she complained that I put my jacket over my schoolbooks and then got wet walking home: "I dry. The books wrinkle when they get wet." :-)
So I pull out all the things I need for baking to make sure I need nothing else, then go to Publix for fresh baking powder and flour to replace what I'm going to use. There are lots of cool twofers: start stocking up for the Twelfth Night party with M&Ms and Wheat Thins/Triscuits. We have enough pineapple but I got one can crushed to go with our ham steak on New Year's Day. Found mixed vegetables for James without potatoes! Found three-cheese boxed potatoes! And Electrasol...oh, Finish...whatever they're calling themselves these days.
And I did remember the baking powder and the flour...a miracle. Next...wine biscuits and the Holiday Pops channel!
Read "the rest of the story," as Paul Harvey used to say, in Holiday Harbour.
