It's been quite a slothful week at the Friesen's.
I tend to get that way when Randall's away.
Not a bad thing, in light of the past few months, to take a week "off". I feel quite relaxed and somewhat refreshed, as far as that goes. And I hosted a meeting here last night which gave me the motivation I needed to clean the house.
And now I'm contemplating a little trip to town. There's a matter of a parcel to post and a boy I could pick up from school. Maybe I'll treat him to an after school slushy for the ride home.
Randall's scheduled to fly home from Storm Central tomorrow evening. Sounds like O'Hare International Airport is getting shovelled out and flights are getting back on track, so we'll see.
I just thought I should let all y'all know how the week is going. It hasn't been too lonely or quiet, so that's good. What it will be like for him to be away in a year and a half when Micah's done & gone is another question. One that I've actually thought about this week.
But for today, the stew is in the slow cooker, and the dumplings are just about mixed up. Micah and I really like stew with dumplings. And ketchup. It's always on the menu when Randall, who doesn't love stew, is away.
So, I'm off.
