Sort of got my kitchen clean and tidy yesterday. Can see counter and floor and impressed DH no end ! For those who have had the misfortune to be in my house recently, it looks rather better now. But the diningroom, oy vey, looks like a grocery store overflow ! Went to Menards yesterday afternoon and bought the shelf support brackets - only 81 cents each. After picking tomatoes and other produce from the garden today, seeing as the sun is shining although it is still a rather chilly 55 degrees, the wind is icy, I'll see what I can accomplish in the pantry.
Bambi gave just over a gallon of milk this morning. Maybe I need to move back to milking twice each day but only until Dolly gives birth later this month. The thought of washing up the milking equipment twice a day is off-putting, as well as the earlier rising.
Rich and Rita came over today for eggs, but the hen-house is bare. Do have a dozen for Angel, who usually gets on a Wednesday, and Jackie also wants some.
DH did breakfast for us today. My home-made chicken nuggets and fries, fresh salad stuff from the garden, pink mayonaise for me, tomato sauce and bbq sauce for him. Yummy.
It looks as if Strawberry will be going to butcher shortly as Nicole is interested. Wonder how many lbs she'll yield ? Will probably take Mr B in at the same time, as our lamb stocks are dangerously low :) Hmmm, think lamb curry is in our future ? Yessss !
What bad luck. One of my rather expensive, large, stainless steel pots has sprung a hole. About the size of those plastic coloured bubbles on the ends of pins and about 2/3 up the side of the pot. Have had suggestions of a stainless steel weld to fix, but don't know whether our welder can do this. Nor do we have the ss wire to do the weld. Need to ask DH. Really don't want to re-purpose it, and don't have the additional $100 to replace it. Why are things so badly made ? Didn't poke it with anything, or drop it, and the hole is perfectly round. Just a weakness in the metal ?
Payday today, so need to go do some banking. Saving up for the rather large car insurance bill that is coming early next month.
