Dreaming of Mac & Cheese

Potatoes are a staple here in "the County" as my home base is called. This is potato country. Actually these are yellow organic so Im not sure exactly where they were grown, but I'm guessing locally. 

I'm making shepherd's pie tonight - mashed potato, turkey burger and corn. One corner contains green beans just because I had them leftover from lunch and I like them. It's as close to comfort food as I can get tonight. I'd much rather have macaroni and cheese but alas, dairy and I aren't on speaking terms right now. Sigh.

It was a challenging day, all starting with the phone ringing at 1:00 am for hubby. A truck breakdown is typical when below zero weather persists day after day. He went out and came back by 2:00 and went back to sleep. The last time I looked at the clock, it was nearly 4:00 am. 

I was determined to drag myself to the gym and meet with my trainer for my once a week health check She cut our session short and sent me home to rest. I've been fighting sinus stuff and nausea ever since I got that flu virus on the day after Christmas. As weary as I was, rest didn't come easy either. 

It has been an out of sync day for me.  Hubby came in tonight while I was peeling potatoes and asked what was for supper. I looked at him with a blank look and said,"uhhhh?"

"Okay, I'll take two." He quipped.
We both laughed and I told him he'd be lucky to get one today.

I've said it before but its worth repeating. God knew what he was doing when he gave us day and night. I love the thought that a brand new day awaits me tomorrow and there is an end to this one. Smile.

  1. Well He did say my with today as it has enough problems of its own and don't worry about tomorrow....sorry you're had such a hard day. Lack of sleep can whack up lots of things; I know from experience. I hope tomorrow is a better day..I have talked to several people who have had what sounds like the same thing you've had and everyone is having a really hard time getting over it. Hugs...
