Lazy Day

With heaps of extra hours at work the last two weeks and today being my only day off this week I am having a decidedly lazy day. Usually on Thursday I rush around finishing things off to list on my website sometime late in the afternoon. Not today!!!
I stewed up a heap of apples on Monday and early this morning I turned them into this..........

My boys love Apple Pie and they will store nicely in the Freezer until one or both come home from Bendigo or someone goes to visit them.. You will notice that while I was out of the house this afternoon someone decided to have a slice for afternoon tea before heading off to milk.
While the pies were cooking I made a big pot of Chicken soup which will also go into the freezer (well what we don't eat anyway) for the boys, unless my daughter comes home first. She loves my home made soup!! I thoroughly enjoyed pottering around the kitchen this morning as I rarely have (or take) the time to do these things.
This afternoon I had a little shopping to do and instead of rushing around the shops I took the time to have a bit of a look around. We are only a very small town so there aren't too many shops to get round but I stopped and chatted with people I knew and just took my time. Really didn't buy anything exciting just a lovely berry candle and some bits I needed in the sewing room.
I've had a lovely chat to my friend on the phone and it was actually a quick one for us ( No more than an hour!!) Caught up with my brother and sister and visited a few blogs I have been meaning to take a look at.
 I really should have a lazy day more often I think.

(P.S. For those of you who have been wondering how my dog Rev is.....He finally had the pin out of his leg on Monday and is finally out of the Play Pen!! It has taken a couple of days for him to realise he is actually free to come and go again. We are keeping a good eye on him though to make sure he doesn't start visiting the neighbours again cause I don't think I can afford another broken leg and couldn't cope with anything worse than that.  I just had a look at the original post about his accident and can you believe it was on the 11th of May???)

Oh Yummo Jackie, deeelish! Days like these are so precious for a working girl like you, my heart goes out to you!
The freezing method is a dream solution when living alone! I so love not having to do the whole cooking routine for dinner for one, just a quick zap.
Hope your weekend comes round fast and you get to take it easy again ;)
