Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

I have had a good week. Only one really bad day. I managed to get the bathroom painted and today I took my sewing room apart. I was still putting it back together when I realized I was exhausted. Then I looked at the clock. Almost 5:30. No wonder I am tired!

It will still be there tomorrow and I will continue then. In the meantime I will sit and rest. I stuck a nice pork loin wrapped in bacon in the oven about 5 hours ago and cooked it slow, on 250. It smells like a smoke house in here, with the hard wood we burn in the wood stove and slow roasted pork, wrapped in apple smoked bacon. Actually, it smells like heaven! Potatoes are in the pot ready to boil for mashed potatoes and the baby butterbeans are simmering on the stove. Biscuits all set to go in the oven.

I am hungry, as I wait for HeWho runs errands for his wife. I found three Adirondack chairs on Craigslist. Wooden, not plastic. All three for a mere forty bucks! Couldn't build them for that. One is a rocker and the other two will be perfect for the new checker table on the front porch. I really wanted this bar height set I saw on Craiglist. It was only $100. Even though it had the table and two chairs ... I already have a table and my deal will provide three more places to sit. I love Craigslist. I have yet to have a bad deal.

So now I will go to the kitchen and finish dinner as the text just came that tells me HeWho is fast approaching home. When I lay me down to sleep, I will know I earned it today!

I would imagine that the dogs' mouths are watering for a taste of pork loin.
