After all of the action Friday and Saturday, today was a chill day for me. Originally, I was going to get up and take the Mayor to his ref seminar this morning. Fortunately, they moved the seminar to Zoom, so I got to sleep in later than anticipated. I spent the rest of my morning relaxing on the couch while the Mayor attended his seminar.

I was also quite productive today. After leisurely enjoying my coffee, I folded the laundry that bas been sitting for weeks now. Additionally, I went through my closet and dressers to get rid of clothes i no longer wear. Incidentally, I realized that while I love working from home, I do miss getting dressed up for the office.

For dinner tonight, I made slow cooker chicken cacciatore with cheesy mashed potatoes. This was my first attempt. For the chicken I used bone in chicken thighs and drumsticks. Before placing the chicken in the crockpot, I browned it on the stove to enhance the flavor. This is a semi-homemade recipe as it calls for jarred marinara sauce. Consequently, I used Michael’s of Brooklyn’s marinara sauce. Thankfully, the recipe was both easy and flavorful – perfect for a chill day. Consequently, I will definitely make it again.

Here’s a list of our day’s activities:

*I’m reading Wolf Hall, by Hilary Mantel.

*12 days until I’ll have all my boys in one place!

*I still can’t run because my toe. Honestly, I’m going to try running on it on tomorrow.

*We’re tracking the Tropics here in Florida. Fortunately, it looks like none of these waves will be impacting Florida.

*I made chicken cacciatore for dinner tonight in the crockpot, which was the perfect meal for my chill day. I loved it!

*The word of the day is goodbye. Honestly, we are all struggling to say goodbye to Maya.

*I took my puppies including sweet Anakin for a. I put on his harness every morning. Otherwise, I have difficulty controlling him on the leash. He’s incredible strong and can pull me off balance, which is why I’m now wearing a boot to protect my poor broken toe


  1. Glad you had a relaxing day! You’re right though, I do miss getting dressed up sometimes though to be honest my work clothes had all seen better days by the end of my time at work.
