Things I've Done Today in Asheville

It's been raining for hours. Not just rain, but thunder & lightning, the- world-is-ending-get-the-ark kind of rain.
  1. Got out of bed at 4:30am
    One of our dogs, Vivi, is terrified of thunder. I got up with her, put her thunder shirt on her & gave her a a bit of children's Benadryl to calm her down.
  2. Had a total of 4 espresso shots with milk.
    Which would explain why I'm a bit manic now.
  3. Bathed my other dog, Josie.
    She's been a bit anxious in her new surroundings, so she's gotten sick a few nights in a row. All better.
  4. Drove to Biltmore Village, by myself.
    15 minutes from here, in the pouring rain.
  5. Made butter.
    You read that correctly. I'm making Edna Lewis' buttermilk biscuits tomorrow morning, so I turned cream into butter and got a bonus cup of fresh, REAL buttermilk. And, while milk with a shot of vinegar or lemon juice does clabber milk, it's not the same. Who am I, I'm asking myself?
  6. Did a few loads of laundry.
    I love to do laundry.
  7. Published 3 lists today.
