Laundry to fold, holiday decorations to pack up, floors to sweep and mop, errands to run. Is a day off truly a day off? Sometimes I really wonder. A friend once told me to do your best to accomplish all your chores on your work days so your days of are truly days off. But for some odd reason I cannot seem to organize that concept in my life. Does anybody?

My biggest excitement for my days off is what am I going to cook for dinner. I so love having a home cooked meal after being in a restaurant all week long. And to be able to flip through pages of a cookbook and create a recipe as if I was taking on a science project of mixing ingredients together and not really knowing the true outcome till we sit down to eat. It truly is an exciting part of my day. Now today my challenge is to figure out what in the world am I in the mood for and how complicated of a cooking project do I want to get into. Decisions decisions.

Work has started off for 2010 with big changes on the positive side of things. We have a new boss that everyone seems rather pleased with. I know I am. We've been handed some projects probably more than we've had in almost two years and it's actually exhilerating and fun to have the passion back to tackle whats been laid before ones self. Funny how when the mind is put to work and not stagnet one feels more alive. Almost like taking your vitamins or going to the gym and getting a big burst of energy. It truly is "A Good Thing."

As for winter weather around here. The snow is pretty but the frigid temps can go. The chilling air has been brutal for the past week. At times I feel like the little boy from A Christmas Story all bundled up and can't put my arms down. If you dare step out not prepared your frozen in seconds. Can't imagine winter life for my Canadian friends brrrrrrrr. I think it's time for a nice hot cup of coffee to not only warm up but to motivate with all these chores to accomplish. Caffine push here I come.

Yesterday was a creamy chicken, noodle and veggie casserole with a crisp green salad with homemade balsamic dressing. Decided on something simple and comforting. Hubby likes a comfort food dish now and then.
