Tuesday was my Monday
My clothesline was in full swing yesterday (leaving no room for bedding, so that's going on the line today), as well as my dishwasher.
Tree trimming is on the list now. Oh how low those branches are right now.
After a few pots of coffee I dove into cleaning the kitchen first, while my washing machine went full swing. It was one of those days where every job gave me another one. Like putting dinner in the crock-pot to find out that my bottle of organic chili pepper was low and needed refilled.
I got my smaller dehydrator cleaned and put away, foaming hand soap refilled, previous laundry day folded and put away, plants watered, and organized one dresser drawer.
It'll probably continue that way all week, but in the end it'll be lookin' purty darn good in the house. That's the plan anyway.
Shopping list is getting long. I need to make a new canning journal, and need to update it.
The car is down now. I have no vehicle, but it's not like a don't have work to do.
Menu for the week
-crock pot fiesta chicken and black beans
-tuna sandwiches, beets (might make the sandwiches grilled)
-breakfast for dinner (undecided yet)
The week is already halfway gone. I better get busy.
