Pie -- yum

I thought I would try a new pie recipe for Thanksgiving this year. Every year I like to try a new recipe or two just to change things up, but here are certain recipes I cannot change or skip. Pies however, are easy to change. It is just a matter of adding and as long as I include a Lemon Meringue, all is well.

Today I went out and got everything I need for the new pie so I could do a trial run on the recipe, but it was so warm, I did not want to heat the oven. Maybe tomorrow I will get around to it. I will let you know how it turns out and if it is a keeper.

Do you ever do that? Try out new recipes before the big day?

Until tomorrow . . .

So much to do

While several necessary tasks were accomplished today, I still feel as if I accomplished nothing. Perhaps my list is too long or my expectations are too high? Or maybe it is because the common daily tasks were left undone?

Do you ever experience this?

Until tomorrow . . .

I need to start a list . . .

Every morning I have a list of things I want to accomplish in my head. I should start writing this list down. Right about mid-day, I find that I have forgotten half the list and let other diversions take over.

I used to write everything down and as the day went, I would check off each task. It was amazing the number of little jobs that could be finished that way.

It is so easy to forget what is to be done when other tasks are right in front of you and seem so important. I often find myself setting aside the me projects to do something for the rest of the family and then I am left feeling unaccomplished at the end of the day.

Do you have that problem? How do you combat the distractions? 

Until tomorrow . . .
