Balancing Act

In blatant compensation for my election- and semester-related anxieties, I found myself doing a month's worth of grocery shopping this morning. I always feel secure with a well-stocked pantry. I was overwhelmed with the need to cook. With Greg's help, I managed to turn last weekend's apple pickings into apple pie filling. Now four individual serving pies are sending a lovely homey aroma through the apartment. I also made chicken and spinach enchiladas for dinner, with enough leftovers for tomorrow night. I feel soothed. My goal is to keep the positive vibe up over the next few days.

Hope y'all had a good weekend!

Our apple pie is coming today, Election Day!

Because even godless communists like to pick organic apples themselves, clean and peel them, and bake them into a pie (with a purchased crust, which is more like Palin's Real America anyways).

Oh, and I like baseball and mom, too.

But I am a socialist atheist, so....maybe I'm half-real.
