The last few weeks or so sleep has been, once again, a commodity in my life. The bonus this day was looking out to see a promise ....
I had enough of my kitchen floor being crusted in dried tomato juice and seeds. It was beginning to feel and look even nastier. With Tomatoes at bay hopefully still another week way before the last part bushel will be ripe, I tackled the Kitchen this morning !
First off there was some re-arranging and wiping down of all counter tops, along with some cupboard doors. Then the battle of the floor. Welding both a scouring pad, cloth and very hot pail of water laced with vinegar, I got to it ....
Once a load of laundry was hung on the line, Rob and I had to go downtown Wiarton to do a couple of errands. Rob dropped of some bags to the Salvation Store for me, while I nipped into the Dollar Store for a little bit, then we headed over to the Foodland store as I needed some Cottage Cheese for the Supper I was putting together for us today.
I had the strangest thing happen. I was searching up around in the top of our bedroom closet for a gift box. I found a couple stuck up there in a bag.
Not only did I have a "very happy kitchen" today, I also had a very happy Van. I took advantage of the cooler weather, along with sunshine in the day, to vacuum out our personal Van from front to rear. What a job that was ... Rob did help me do a wee bit, which always is appreciated, as well as dragging in and out the humongous Shop Vac for me. Bonus !!!
With the laundry gathered from the clothes line, the afternoon had almost slipped on by us ... time to think about getting our supper prepared before I knew it.
Recipe please? PRINTABLE RECIPE HERE.
I use quite a few mushrooms throughout the Winter months for stews, soups and omelets, so what better way to store them but for drying them first? Two more packages still in the fridge to be done tomorrow evening. They will be all ready by the time I get up in the morning ... hopefully it not being at 4 am again as it had been this morning.
....and before I forgot, I have just sent off an email to Terri Hastings. Oh my feeble tired mind at times, if I don't do it right when I think about it !
I am tired ... it makes for a long day when one arises in the "wee" hours of the morning, does it not?
Oops ... one more really cool thing I had also just came across the other day. I have not tried it myself however I wanted to "share" as it is right up my ally with being Easy Peasy as 1-2-3. Check it out at the following web link:
Sound pretty cool, eh? Maybe some time when the kids are up visiting I can give it a try out, if I remember by then .... ha !
The "Voice" is on now, which is one of the few shows I do enjoy watching. I am off like a "dirty shirt", "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
