Wednesday, Slugs and Sis are hateful....

                                                                       


Slugs and Sis are at IKEA having fun and this is the very bad picture they sent me.... Not only are they together and I am alone here working my butt off, they are snarky to boot!  

It will be a busy day here as I have 7 missionaries to feed and Hubs is up at daughters helping to watch the babies.

The weather here is still very hot with wind and so much smoke.  My sinuses are drip, drip with the air.  I would love to be outside with the heat, but it is just not good to breath and unfortunately it is getting worse as the smoke sinks into the valley.

So yesterday Hubs got home about 3:30 although I had expected him about 11:00.  He was so tired and just over heated I think.  The littles had destroyed the house and he usually keeps up with them, but I was alone in this plus I was sewing.  They are so good that I can sew most of the day without bother, but they do like to strew toys and things every wear. Hubs was so rummy last night that I finally just fed him and made him do nothing.  I ran around a cleaned up.

I need to get more housework done today and plenty of sewing.  Bridesmaid dresses coming out my ears here. so today's list is:

1. x fer laundry

2. finish vacuuming

3. mop floors

4. wipe down kitchen appliances

5. make a chocolate cake for dessert ( i have a mix that needs to be made up)

6. Set table

7. peel potatoes( hubs can boil outside)

8. shuck corn ( hubs can boil outside) 

9.  alter a pile of clothes

10. hem burgundy dress

11. hem blue dress

12. hem green dress

13. hem turquoise dress

14. another turquoise dress hem

I think that is enough for today, let's see what I can accomplish? 

Yesterday I cleaned out one cupboard in the Kitchen and found things that were needing to be used.  I even had to throw a couple of things away, even though I will use things past expiration.  I have to really look at my food pantry and plan on going through things before the end of the month and reorganizing my food stuffs. I plan on  putting things that are close to or over do at the front and getting those things used up.  I am going to do this while Hubs is gone next week.

Do any of you find things in the back corner of a cupboard that you forgot to use?  Do you always go by the manufactures best by date?  You know when you store food like I do and buy loss leaders and stock up you do have to pay attention.  For instance I have 25 2 lb bags of brown sugar I bought for .75 a bag three Christmas's ago.  Will I ever in the rest of my life use this much brown sugar?  It is still soft and good but really?  Sometime Kim needs her head examined.  Any of you do a boo boo like this? Please tell me I am not alone.,

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

  1. Holy smokes that's a lot of brown sugar! I try to keep an eye on dates, and as it gets closer, I often give it away if I don't think we can finish it. Food waste makes me twitchy

    1. Well my next question is do you need any brown sugar? I mean the only thing I really use it in is cookies, as in peanut butter and choc chip and I just don't make those very often if ever. What was I thinking?

  3. Well, in the “crazy food purchase category”….About five years ago, in a frenzy of buying food for the pantry at a good price, I bought a 25 or 50 lb bag of white rice. Turns out, my husband waited 25 years to tell me he only likes brown rice. Sigh. So I am chiseling my way through the white rice, using it in recipes as I can….sigh. And even better, I don’t really like brown rice, so it is a bust all around. The good news is that white rice has a long shelf life in the food grade bucket in my closet ;)

  4. A POX on those two!

    I don't always toss items past expiration date. I found a box a few weeks ago of Kraft Mac n cheese and used it even though it was past the use by date. It was nasty, so nasty I could not eat it. Several years ago, I did the same thing and threw it out. Some foods are still good.

    I would try to keep those kids in one room with less toys, but you are too busy to do that. Try bribing them. That always works.

    1. Good idea but our house is not set up like that. I just have extreme guilt throwing food away.

  5. I think we need to for a secret club with some secret rules and we will blackball both of them and never let them see the secret handshake!
    I have never bought 25 boxes of brown sugar, but I have been known to buy entirely too much when things are on sale. Case in point__pasta!

  6. I'm sorry the fires are still burning. Do hope that you get some rain soon.
    We did some stocking up last year when there were shortages. Dh bought bags of leg quarters which make me sort of queasy, but I really should cook them. We also have a tub of maxwell house coffee. Maybe I can turn it into some cold coffee drinks, and it will be more palatable?

    2. I think we should find some soft black balls and literally hit them with them instead of a figurative blackballing!

  8. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
