Sunday, Time to change

     We switched Church times again this year.  So church will start at 1 p.m. instead of 9 a.m.  I don't like mornings as it is really hard for me to get going quickly, but I love having the afternoon to take a long nap or go for a walk.  Having afternoon church is nice as I can sleep in and take time to get ready, take a long bath, soak, but my whole day is gone by the time I get home.  Gripe, complain, never happy. Right now I am really rested and I can blog before I get in the tub.

     Hub's and I drove up to the University yesterday to deliver a bed frame to B (I bought a really good twin bed frame for $5.99 at Goodwill) and we also bought her groceries for the upcoming semester.  We stocked up at Winco and really bought a lot of meat.  I will not have to buy meat for another few months.  I did not plan to spend so much money, but the deals were too good to pass up, so I will be redoing my budget a little in the next 2 months.

     Hub's has a colonoscopy tomorrow so I will be cooking nothing today that has a good smell as he would be forced to eat one of his young.  Hub's does not like to skip meals. He is just a little grouchy.  He isn't often grouchy, this has just not been a good week.

      My bread turned out beautiful.  Four huge 2 lb loaves.  Took one to B and D#2 took one to a friend we ate one and are now down to 1/2 a loaf.  I don't dare make any today, but it is so easy now with my new mixer.  I was able to buy dark honey by the lb at Winco, which really lowers the cost of making the bread.  I will post pictures next time I make a batch.  Because it has no preservatives I will have to start freezing  loaves.

     Carla and I must be on the same wave length as she was getting very frustrated with her kitchen storage.  I have very little storage in my kitchen and I had a dishwasher that was not built in and it has been broken for 2 years.  We used it as a microwave cart.  I had it hauled away and bought a cart at Walmart where I can store my new Crockpot (I named Judy) and my salad bowls that I usually keep on a chair in the dining room.  I am a little worried as  my Microwave is a DCS convection microwave and it is heavy, the rack might not be sturdy enough for the long haul.  I will continue to look for one that is sturdier and I will take this one down to the studio as we really need a rack for our microwave down there also.  It is just so nice to get rid of that big old appliance in the kitchen.  I am also going to be cleaning cupboards.  I don't believe I have that much to throw away, I just need to reorganize desperately.

     Don't tell Sluggy, but I had to buy one large storage container for Christmas crap.  I looked in all my bins and there was just not room.  I am sure next year when we take out all the bins I can reorganize down to less but right now I am not willing to get out the mess.  I spent $4.97 too save myself time. I am bad.

     I really miss my sissie and my mom, I don't know why it is so bad this time, maybe the dark gloomy weather.

Have a restful and quiet Sabbath.



  1. You've inspired me. I am going to make bread this week. I don't know if I've ever made bread except in my moms bread maker when I was a kid (and banana bread and the like but that really doesn't count). This should be fun.

    psst, I have a feeling Sluggy will read this post so you've just outed yourself :)
