The book kept me up until well past 3am last night. Today I’ve accomplished pancakes, organizing my office/guest room, cleaning the deck and carport, and watching Harry Potter year 1 and 2. I would have watched the third one but when I put in the disc, it plays Polar Express!? Needless to say I was not happy. I am also too lazy to go back to Wal-Mart and exchange it today. That will be added to the list of things to accomplish tomorrow evening.
This morning’s breakfast was a quick, throw together type of pancake because its the end of the month and I have not been to the store recently. I was using what few things are still left in the fridge, freezer, and pantry.
