Madness! Today was window cleaning day and going room by room to make sure everything looks right for pictures Monday. Gotta sell this house!
I made it through 3 rooms. Not bad.
But I got frustrated after I received a call from someone to let me know that important obligations would not be met.
That seemed to throw me over the edge and I felt depressed and sad.
I didn’t stay in that mood for very long though — God being who He is, I received 2 calls shortly thereafter and they helped lift my spirits.
Later, while making dinner I decided to make pumpkin pie so that I could help deplete our cupboards.
All was going well — uh, no, I guess not. I made the pie crust from scratch only to find I had packed the roller. So, I got creative and used a can of Ravioli.
It worked okay but the pie crust seemed rather thick to me. It did fit perfectly in the pie plate though.
Next I combined all the ingredients and popped the pie in the oven.
Started working on dinner again and — oh, what are these eggs here for?
Oh no! They belong in the pie! Out came the pie after 10 minutes of baking.
I quickly added the eggs in and stirred. Would it work? We’d know later.
The pie was supposed to bake for 35 minutes. Hmmm … not ready yet. Added another 10 minutes. Nope, still not ready. Added another 10 minutes.
Out it came. Looked good.
After dinner, I had the first piece of pie since my family thought by now that I was a little wacky.
Tasted good. The crust was a little thick but overall not bad.
Then my son, who just came home from being out of the country, bit into his piece.
“I think I just got a chunk of ginger.”
Oh well. Trying to bake without the proper utensils and in a hurry doesn’t work too well.
Life as it is.
