things I accomplished today
1) walked the dog this morning (because t'wings was at work)

2) made two (2) pies - well, I made the fillings, and t'wings made the pastry:
a) Peach Blackberry! Made because we had bruised peaches and had just gone berry-picking yesterday. Largely handwavey on the measurements:

b) Apple! The first apples of fall, for us; there've been a couple at the farmers' market for a few weeks, but they've mostly been early varieties I don't like. These are some that we got yesterday at a local orchard (the same one with the berry picking).

I haven't tried the apple pie yet, but it looks and smells pretty tasty.

T'wings made a single recipe of her grandma's pastry dough which made both pie shells and lattice for the top. And she took pictures.

3) Wine tasting with [profile] livre_libre and [personal profile] thingswithwings! This is one of those great living in a wine region benefits, where you can just go "hey, want to check out what they have at the in town tasting place tomorrow?" We tried many wines; t'wings had some good rieslings, and [profile] livre_libre tried a great sparkling wine, but I mostly tried things that were supposed to be refreshing and summery but instead were one-note (that note was mostly citrus).

4) Big Grocery Store Errands. Blah blah pharmacy blah.

5) Short walk out to the coffee shop with the puppy, who needed an afternoon snuffle. And I needed a coffee.

6) Watched Doctor Who.

7) Ate extremely tasty tomato salad that t'wings made. (Also while she was picking the tomatoes I watered the plants.)

8) Watched K-20: Legend of the Mask, which made us all laugh and laugh. Hijinks! Acrobatics! Mistaken identities! Disguises! Sudden undercover heist! Kaneshiro Takeshi! Helicopter rescue! Alternate history! Yoko is seriously awesome! Other exclamation marks! I recommend it to anyone who likes heists and stealing from the rich and acrobatics and AUs and ladies being awesome.

9) Seven chapters of [project]. Yay for doing things on that project that I'd been ignoring!

Things I did not accomplish today:
1) Any dishes. Well, that's a lie, I washed the worst of the baking bowls. But it's basically true. (Too much baking! Too hot in the kitchen! Preheat to what in summery humid weather? But still, too many dishes.)

2) The other ten chapters of [project].

3) The fanwork stuff I meant to do today.

Things I plan to not do tomorrow if at all possible:
1) Walk and/or stand. My knees were already kind of cranky after going to the orchard and picking fruit yesterday, and now they have rebelled. Unfortunately, tomorrow is the farmers' market, which I want to go to. And also the dishes are sitting there taunting me. And if I don't do them the fruit flies will attack.
