Ready to settle in

Pramas is home and I couldn't have been happier to see him. Not that it helped me sleep at all; even though Pramas got home after midnight and we settled in to bed after 1:00am, I was awake at 5:30 and after laying there for an hour and a half hoping to fall back asleep I gave up and got up. Argh. I'm SO ready to settle into a routine, hunker down at home and not worry about going anywhere for a while. I kept myself occupied this weekend catching up with all sorts of household chores. Fall cleaning instead of spring cleaning, I guess.

I caught up on laundry, put all our summer clothes into storage and pulled out the sweaters and moved everything into the dressers. I reorganized the living room to accommodate Tim's tv, bought and assembled three IKEA shelves, moved the old entertainment center out to the garage and reorganized things out there so we can once again walk. The recycling bin is full to the top and I have several large bags and boxes full of packing peanuts that need to find a home at Office Depot or some similar drop-off location. Dead tedious crap for the most part but I can look around and see the results of my efforts and that sense of accomplishment is always good for my soul.

For the first time in ages I'm also ready to do some cooking. Between the travel and the summit it's been eating out, eating leftovers, or eating quick meals with Kate like frozen ravioli or canned soup. Kate and I did a big shopping trip and came home with the ingredients for: Chicken and Goat Cheese Quesadillas; Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast; Pork Roast with White Beans and Cranberries; Three Bean Chili; and Pork Loin Braised with Cabbage (on the menu for tonight). I'm also going to whip up a batch of Jasmine Chai Rice Pudding, because it is SO rice pudding weather. These are all new recipes I'm trying out, so I'll be sure to post recipe page updates if they're worth making.
