Survived the weekend

No one was fired, but it was a close thing. Now I just need the new hires…

Did a bit of cooking and baking this weekend. Used the last of the apples to make applesauce and then used that apple sauce to make a big apple dump cake. Yummy, still have have of it left. Whatever that is not eaten today will be frozen, because it’s so yummy warmed up with whipped cream anyway.

I also made chicken rice casserole because I was in the mood for comfort food. So there are 5 or 6 servings of that in freezer. This weekend I hope to make some bread and maybe some soup or stew.

One of the gourmet delis had lamb pot pies, I almost bought one but was a good doobie and saved the money for gas.

Rob’s and my horoscope are pretty interesting and rather on target for the upcoming week, lol. I am in a creative rut and Rob is starting a new career.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The last few drops remaining in your chalice will soon evaporate. Your luxurious indoor swimming pool (you know, the one in your fantasies) has barely enough water left in it to give a water bug traction. And you haven’t reached out your arms and cupped your hands in a gesture of feisty anticipation for far too long. So what are you going to do about it all, Gemini? Here’s what I suggest: FILL ‘ER UP! (P.S. The gas tank of the flying car you sometimes take for a spin in your dreams is also on empty.)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The film *The Englishman Who Went Up The Hill But Came Down A Mountain* is set in Wales in 1917. Two English cartographers arrive in a small town to evaluate whether the local peak is really high enough to be officially defined as a mountain. To the villagers’ consternation, their beloved landmark is found to be less than the regulation 1,000 feet–a mere hill–and that prompts them to take action. With painstaking determination, they haul buckets of dirt from their gardens all the way to the top, hoping to raise it high enough to exceed the standard. This scenario is comparable to a challenge I hope you’ll take on, Libra. Please do whatever’s necessary to ensure your hill is actually a mountain.
