Cranberry Chicken (Day 20)

Welcome to Day 20 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking!

 

I decided to Google a writing prompt for today because I was coming up blank on what I should write.  I found a website called Massive Sway that had writing prompts for each day in October.  So I’m using today’s writing prompt.

What do you like to do on a dark and stormy day?

Last night as soon as the Wee One had soon left for his acrobatic lesson with his grandma, the dog decided he was going to jump on me.  He was breathing on me and shaking like crazy.  Why was he doing that?  It was getting ready to storm.

I was working on progress reports at that time so I finished working on them.  Then I took a bath and just relaxed.

The rest of the night was stormy.  It made for good sleeping weather.  However I kept getting interrupted by the dog walking into my room, jumping onto my bed (something he’s not suppose to do), walking around my head, and then jumping off the bed.  He did that a few times before finally settling down for the night.

It continued raining throughout today while the temperature was dropping.  I wish I wasn’t at work because it would be a good day to just relax, read a book, and cook some cookies or brownies.  On a rainy day, it’s nice to make soup in the slow cooker.

In fact, I had made taco soup last night.  We had more of the soup for dinner tonight.

Chinese Pot Roast (Day 19)

Welcome to Day 19 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking!

I’m a day behind with the Write 31.  Life has gotten a little crazy around here.  I ended up having to write an Individualized Educational Plan for one of my students.  Then I had to get ready for a meeting with my principal.  Finally I had to write detailed progress reports for each of my students.  That’s only on the work end of my life.

My mom ended up moving out on Monday.  She is within three minutes driving time from my house.  That is if the weather is nice.  I can walk there in 15 minutes.  Having her close is so much better than the previous situation.  She used to live 40 minutes from me.

So I helped her out with moving out on Monday.  Actually I used the Imaginative One’s strength to help get the tv, microwave, and other boxes out to her car.  He and I ended up walking to her apartment so he could help get some of the stuff out of the car.

Last night I took her shopping so that we could get a tv.  The one she took to her house ended up not working.  It was manufactured in 1996 so maybe it was time for a new one.  LOL!  So my life has been CRAZY for the last few days.

With the crazy came a writer’s block.  I couldn’t figure out what to write and I didn’t want to write.  Now it feels better to have some of my inspiration back.

I’m going to attempt to have the next recipe up later tonight.

How’s your last few days been?
