Up around noon today, to find the weather dreary and a lot colder than it's been lately. So far, November has been pretty mild, but today was not pleasant. I spent a desultory early afternoon online while queenmomcat was out exercising at the Y, and after she got home from that we went out to lunch together. After lunch, I ran a few errands, and then came home for the day.
At least I was busy in the late afternoon. I did some laundry, balanced the checkbook, and paid some bills. I also sent of a poetry submission to a journal I've been trying to break into for a while, which is having a "poetics of science" special issue. That's right up my alleyway, so out the submission went.
In the evening, I prepared chicken pomodoro in the slow cooker and then settled in to do some updating up my LiveJournal, which continues to be between two and three weeks behind. Sigh. The chicken pomodoro turned out quite well tonight: last time it was a little dry, but this time I cooked it for about an hour less and it was perfect. And now it's time to look towards going to bed. Tomorrow is another book store day, and I want to be awake for that. Who knows what holiday preparations I'll have to carry out this time.
