Came home and did two loads of laundry. Cleaned out the open shelves in the kitchen. They go from ceiling to floor. Rearranged them. Filled up a box of paper, magazines for recycling. Dinner was pizza muffin. Still cold , will be 31 overnight again.
Tomorrow is church then vixit my Mom. I will go to church with her. They have it in the afternoon at the nursing home. She loves that even if she really cant hear the speaker. She like the music and sings along with all the hymns. She knows the words so it doesnt matter that she cant see the words.
Hope everyone had a great day, Babs less

I got up and discovered the df had a cerfitied letter I needed to sign for at the post office and realized while I was there I could send ds#1 his b'day present a month early. Ds#3 wanted to go to the thrift store near the post office so he and dd#2 came with me. I stopped at home depot and bought a wire closet shelf which was cut to fit the big freezer so now I have 5 compartments in my freezer and it cost about $12. It's a good thing I got it to cause the farmer I'm getting my meat from this year called to say the beef was ready. It's vacumed sealed and slides around so organizing the freezer with out the compartments is almost impossible. Right now ds#3 is putting the beef away and organizing the freezer for me. We still need to get chicken breast and hot dogs but those can wait a little longer. I've got the last load of laundry in the washer and a few bins of summer clothes that I still have to put away while packing away the win... less

Martha, sorry your medical office experience was not a good one.
Spent the morning at a prayer event at the church office.
Main meal was a small boneless pork roast from Aldi's, mashed potatoes (needed to use up the sprouting ones), broccoli shoots and kale from the garden (cut yesterday), and defrosted apple sauce. There is enough left for our after church meal tomorrow.
We have a cuckoo clock I bought in Germany in 1981. The timing chain somehow snapped off yesterday. DH found some repair instructions on the Internet and has been working on the clock since I got home. Hope he can fix it, otherwise it will just be a lovely wall hanging.
Everyone have a blessed weekend. less

My BFF and I are going to lunch this afternoon, making a trip to Costco for her dad and a few things for us and in between showers we are going to pot her veggie plants in pots. Her backyard is all cement with a pool so we are doing container gardening. This will be her first garden. She is really excited. DH will be home from his business trip this evening so I need to decide what to make for dinner tonight. Maybe I will get some inspiration while at Costco. less

Do you have a rag bag? You know, a place where you stash worn out clothing and household linens? You might have some old tshirts there or a thin sheet or maybe a stained tablecloth or worn out jeans. If you don't have a "rag bag," better get one started!
What you do with your stash besides ...

Yo Steve, My wife and I fight, or shall I say disagree, all the time about spending and a budget. She has one opinion and I have another. She says we should not spend more than 25% of our income on housing but I say 33% is alright. Who is right? Jim...
