I balanced the checkbook and paid a few bills before going to let the dogs out at Wayne and Karen's house, since they are on vacation this week.
When I did get home, I cleaned up the dishes from last night and took the trash out, because the whole house was starting to smell like it. Yuck!!!
I made a Buttermilk pie tonight, and I think I'll list the recipe. It was very easy to make and it tastes great. I must admit that I add a lot more lemon juice than what the recipe calls for. I believe the original recipe calls for about a tablespoon of lemon juice. I used 4 times that much, plus a little splash extra. I love lemon flavor!
After making the pie, I washed a load of clothes, did the dishes, and cleaned up the kitchen area in general.
Right now I'm very very warm. This laptop is hot on my lap, and I'm in a jumper and t-shirt, which seem very heavy right now, though I know they are both lightweight.
I may cut this post a little short- I need to get this laptop off of me!
This recipe was originally posted at the Sugarpie Farmhouse Site.

** I use a LOT more lemon juice- usually 4 tablespoons or so. Add to suit your family's taste.
My finished pie was supposed to be pictured below. Unfortunately, after taking a few pictures, I thought I'd be able to figure out how to put up a photo. However, there are about 460 pictures on the card, so I don't really know how to pick and choose to only download 1 or 2. Frankly, I am angry that I don't know how to do this. :-/
