Another lazy Sunday

It's been a hot day without much going on in the Twin Cities. This morning I read the Sunday paper and talked with my sister in Madison WI for an hour. I went on the patio and "deadheaded" the hanging petunia plant to keep it blooming.

I made myself some pancakes and covered them with some raspberry "freezer" jam my cousin gave me. I watched Gracie for a while as she crouched down in front of the patio door "stalking" a tiny little mouse wandering around the tomato plants. Then I took a nap.

Am I boring or what! It really bothers me when I am so incredibly lazy.

Then I got to thinking about making an apple pie. Nothing swings me into action like making something tasty. I have a bunch of apples in the fridge that should be used up--especially now that the new crop is coming in. However, I'm debating whether it's too hot to bake.

But then, it cools off quickly when the sun starts to set and it will take a while to peel the apples and make the pie crust (from mix, but still...). Of course the pie will take an hour to bake and an hour to cool so by then it will be 9:00. This wouldn't be a problem except that cinnamon gives me heartburn if I eat it before bedtime.

Sigh... Life is so difficult for lazy, indecisive people like me.

I'd go with apple crisp myself.

I don't know why people who know how to savor life call themselves "lazy."

Many folks rush all about, into mischief, or wasting time and energy to appear "busy," and it's just a sham!

Save me a piece of the pie!
