Most people get sidetracked by summer fun this time of year. Me? I’m sidetracked by a kitchen renovation and food processing and storage for the coming fall and winter.
Yesterday I was in the basement rearranging the freezers and taking inventory. I actually started the inventory process in the cupboards on Wednesday. I admit, I’m a bit of an organizing freak. I like to know what I have and how much. Then I can plan to use it up.
I used to draw up a menu plan and follow it religiously. Not anymore! I make the menu plan and pick and choose meals from it depending on how I feel and my time constraints that particular day. It is a lot more relaxing that way.
In kitchen renovation news…the cabinets are half built. The installer will take over the kitchen on the 21st and remove the old kitchen. Hubby will sand and paint. The flooring guy will come do his thing. Then the installer comes back. Then we have to call in a plumber to connect the sink and dishwasher. BUT none of the hookups can happen until we buy and receive appliances! Rumour has it appliances are hard to acquire right now. We’re off today to check.
In rug hooking news…I’m almost done hooking “The Weave”! I figure I have another three to four hours of hooking. Then the finishing. I’m guessing, with everything else going on, it will be a couple of weeks yet. I’m looking forward to “The Bubble”.
If you have been, thanks for reading. Have a good weekend everyone!
