Although I thought winter would be a restful time and much handiwork would be done, it hasn't been. We have been prosperous with starting small on remodeling. It however, puts me behind in regular chores.
Instead of snow, we got something in between, like a mix of freezing rain/sleet. There was a layer of ice on everything.
Tuesday was a busy day in the kitchen. First on the list - infuse a hearty nettle tea. Second, clean up the kitchen to boil chicken for our dinner casserole. I had to boil eggs, make a breakfast scramble with greens, and make organic pudding for a side dish.
There was laundry to do, kindling to fetch, firewood to fetch, chickens to tend, rugs to spot clean, carpets to vacuum.....long day.
By the way, fetching the firewood was a bit tricking with the driveway a total sheet of ice. I have spikes on my boots, but I still had trouble getting the cart back to the house.
Dinner was Mexican Chicken Casserole, so I pulled some homemade creamed soups out of the freezer to make it. I used organic Chia/Quinoa tortilla chips.
More lists were compiled - craft store, dollar store, groceries, a trip to Aldi's etc. Aldi now sells organic white quinoa.
Today we have leftovers, so I'm truly happy for that. Also, I heard back from the museum gift shop. They want to sell my dish scrubbies (another happy moment).
