Spaghetti sauce, stewed tomatoes, and varnish!

(Sat Sep 19 13:21:46 2009)

No, it's not a new recipe. It's my weekend!

With Lindsay and the boys away shopping for most of the day, I've had time to work on tomatoes, finish building my floor, and even watch a few shows I hadn't been able to catch up on for a while.

It's been... relaxing. I'm not a social butterfly; heck, I'm not even a social dung beetle. My idea of the perfect social life involves seeing people twice a week. Not partying twice a week - seeing *any* people, twice a week, no more. Well, ok, maybe I'm not that introverted. But I am introverted. Social stuff, even just playing with my kids or talking with my wife, can be draining. I'm not saying I don't like that - just that it's nice, sometimes, to be able to recharge my batteries in peace.

Anyway, with all this free time on my hands, I've managed to get a little more of the kitchen floor finished - this is the last step - and I've been simmering tomato sauce all morning. It's been... four hours now? And it's almost done! Apart from the varnish, the house would smell like that of an Italian grandma's. As it is, well, it smells like the house of an Italian painter. Ah well.

By the end of the day, I'm hoping to have a stack of canned tomato sauce, a stack of canned stewed tomatoes, and a finished floor. But even more, I'm hoping I'll have enough "alone" charged up to make it until my next day by myself!
