Thursday, so tired.....

     I am putting the canning things away today for a week or two.  I am very tired of the mess, but grateful for the addition to the pantry.  I made 10 jars of apricot syrup and 20 jars of apricot jam yesterday.  I was able to get quite a bit of sewing done also.  This has worn me out!  Hub's took me out for a taco salad last night as I pulled meat out of the freezer too late and was too tired to do anything with it.  So dinner was $8.65 cents.  We are big spenders.

     I will do something with the chicken breasts I thawed last night, but not sure what yet.  Just have no inspiration, hope I get some soon or they are going on the grill.  I think a stir fry and then make some chicken salad for tomorrow, that sounds good to me.

     I am spending today in the shop.  Next week I will need to get enough together for the house payment and I had better get busy putting money aside.  It seems to take every penny just to get through the month and a few extras.  We will be needing gas in both vehicles and food for the animals this weekend.

      I need to hop in the tub, and get myself going, I plan on staying strapped to the sewing machine today and a few cleaning projects.

Have a great and productive day!
