Tuesday, Bangings and doings...

     I finally got some sewing done yesterday, my oh my can I procrastinate when I want to.  We have a handy man here today and he has already replaced a light and is working on restoring some siding on a window in the kitchen.  Then he is onto the tile floor in the kitchen.  So the house is full of noise and hopefully progress.

     We need to use up our garden potatoes.  I pulled frozen corn and meat balls and marinara sauce out of the freezer.  I scrubbed and cooked up extra potatoes because the  chickens are really starting to lay again and we have a plethora of eggs.  One of our meals this week will be fried potatoes mixed with eggs and onions.  Use what we have and stay out of the stores. I must concentrate on using a good bushel of potatoes in the next month.

















       I almost forgot that good friends of ours brought over a stalk of brussel sprouts and I had them outside in the smoker.  Hubs found them yesterday, so I processed those and froze them. I love brussel sprouts roasted.  We will get at least 4 meals from this stalk.

     Today I will sew and I have to touch base with the carpet layers.  Also need to sand some of the spots in moms room that I have filled and perhaps touch up the paint.  Just waiting on a call from carpet company with their time frame.

     I did take a load of laundry to Lil sis's to dry last night and when I got home our 13 year old TV decided it would not switch channels any more. The remote will not make it switch nor will the manual button. You can still stream netflix and such on it but cannot get it to switch from the channel it is on.  Great!  Hubs watched the news on the internet last night.  I can get a small TV from Lil sis, and we do have a very small one hooked to the wall in moms bedroom but no cable hooked to it. I refuse to let hubs drill a hole into the middle of the wall.  He can do it right and proper or go without the news.  Don't worry he will figure it out.  I don't even mind him hiring this done, but he will not jury rig and mess into this basement.

     I also have to do some investigating of a new shower for the master bath, which looks like it is going to be a problem.  I will work on that after I get my sewing done today.

     So many irons in the fire, but we are getting some things done.  Thank goodness and our pocketbook.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

  1. Oh my! You have a lot going on. I know that makes you happy to get all of this done. I don't blame you for not allowing things to be done wrong. There were things I could do that did not look so hot, but anyone who had the skills was expected to do it right. I once put in a 220 outlet, and it looked awful. However if anyone with the skills did what i did, I would be furious. Are you taking before and after pictures? I am suing up vegetables here rather than buy more.

  4. You are doing great with the house! I've been reasonably productive today. A workout bright & early, made an ortho appt for a child at lunch, meditated & journaled, have a load of laundry going & am heating up leftovers for dinner. . . always so gourmet at weeknights at my house ;-)

  7. If you want to pick the least risky stock market corners, there are several options to look for. Highly diversified mutual funds in stable and mature industries are your safest bet. satta king
