Today is the last day for the apron give away, so don't forget to enter by leaving a comment. (see post on March 1st)
We vote for a new school bond today. We have been trying to get a new high school built here for 30 years. It is so hard. I sure hope it passes this time.
Still waiting for the weather to co-operate, and I am not waiting patiently I might add. It is in the mid 50's so warm enough, but not dry enough to do anything outside. Blah!
I tried really hard yesterday to get some things done and I think I was effective.
Hub's and I went to get much needed grocery items and I went way over my budget, but I will blame it on good meat sales. Like three packages of rib eye steaks for 80% off. One package was three steaks under $10.00. How can you turn that down? So I over spent at Albertsons by about $40.00. Then onto Winco and they had chicken legs and thighs in large packages for .69 a pound. Again over spent. I have to remind myself that this is how I keep the budget down later. I ended up with 3 packages of steaks, 2 large packages of stew meat, and enough chicken for 4 meals. All in all it will feed us for about 15 meals. Taking a husband grocery shopping is like taking a 3 year old. They want everything they see. Potatoes were .99 a 10 lb bag as the farmers start to kull the cellars.
Yesterday I made chicken cordon blue with mashed potatoes and peas. There is enough left over for tonight's dinner. Also made my " clean the crisper salad", with three mealy apples and three limp stalks of celery, 1/2 a small onion, some raisins and walnuts. It is a family favorite.
The house desperately needs a spring cleaning, but I want to do this after I get the yard and garden whipped into shape. Other wise I ignore the house and just toss, throw and shove and undo what I have done. This causes my daughters to ask the common question, "Mother which one of you personalities made this mess?"
Well I am off to vote and try to get something done in the shop before I have to teach. Alice and Wonderland is on the docket for spring. Now get 52 kids on stage dressed as a deck of cards all dancing in unison. I've done it before, I can do it again.
Have a great and productive day!
