Oh yes, the $20.00 I had set aside for Post Crossing this month? There is still $5.00 and change remaining in that envelope, so I am still within budget there. I think I will be able to send three more Post Cards, should I feel inclined to, still remaining within budget.
Now onto the second important item at hand, before this too I forget .... a Warm Welcome goes out to my newest follower, Kerry of Stitching Sister. Thanks Kerry for joining me here for my daily ramblings, and hopefully only an occasional rant or two at any given time.
I almost was blown away at the wash line this morning, and again when retrieving the clothes just before suppertime. The Willow trees are swaying to and fro still as I gaze out through the patio doors, and never mind how cold it feels ... brr.
I can not believe how long I did without a "main" light in the kitchen. There was a bit of jaw jabbing back and forth before this was put into play .... I am sure Rob said something to the effect he had meant to keep me in the dark for this long, as he didn't want me to get out and really see what was going on. Umm maybe he had a good point, there were cobwebs on the light fixture I really hadn't noticed until it had been fixed. Ha ! that will teach me.
I had to think about what I was going to make today for our supper. Out came a small roast from the freezer. Into the Crock Pot it went along with carrots and a couple of cooking onions Potatoes were added in later, as they go too mushy if added in at the first.
I had a Broccoli needing used up in the fridge, so I got to doing preparations to make Rob's favourite Broccoli Salad.
This recipe was given to me by my friend, Reenie, and has been one of Rob's favourites since he first had it at her home a few years ago. For the size of salad I made today, I made up only 1/2 of the dressing amount.
Recipe please? PRINTABLE RECIPE HERE
Laundry on the line, dishes done up, light fixture fixed (Rob couldn't believe it was only a wire that had came loose; how in the heck did that happen way up there on the ceiling?), bed made, Aussies looked after .... it was then an errand trip downtown Wiarton.
Oh yes and then there was the matter of the Tomato Powder I had made.
If it doesn't work, I still have a bottle of Ammonia that cost under $3.00, I can use for other cleaning projects. Just a tad in with vinegar and water adds sparkle to any window or appliance.
Oh man, here it is after 9 pm already, with me having forgotten all about putting those sliced carrots in the dehydrators ... where does time fly to? I guess I have been living it and not missing out one bit.
I can remember feeling like this a lot at one time in my life ....
The fear of missing out. – If you feel anxious because you constantly feel like you’re missing out on something happening somewhere else, you’re not alone. We all feel this way sometimes. But let me assure you,you could run around trying to do everything, and travel around the world, and always stay connected, and work and party all night long without sleep, but you could never do it all. You will always be missing something. So let it go, and realize you have everything right now. The best in life isn’t somewhere else; it’s right where you are, at this moment. Celebrate the perhaps not altogether insignificant fact that you are alive right now. This moment, and who you are, is absolutely perfect. Take a deep breath, smile, and notice how lovely it is. ~ Marc & Angel ~
I am off to get myself tucked it and hopefully to sleep as I listen to the howling of the wind outside our windows, as Rob and I have ourselves an adventure planned tomorrow, I am looking so forward to, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
