    Dinner is done. Everyone fed. Kitchen clean. Just waiting till 7 to run dishwasher. Will gather laundry and put a load on at 7 too. Then put the dry stuff away. Move my drying racks to spare room to hang stuff when wash is done. ( expecting rain tonight). Then tackle basement a bit and post stuff for sale. Tidy dining room.

    Laundry is all folded and put away. 2nd pot of chicken, veggie with noodle is done and just about cool enough to put in the freezer, so now I'm going to sit and relax. I asked MIL if she was going into town this week if she could bring me as I'd like to stock up on PRIME whole chickens which are $2.00 lbs at FreshCo. this week, nothing else really is turning my crank.

    Going to head over to pinterest to look for some recipes (lol), I now know that the guys will not eat

    soft cookies
    anything with oatmeal
    no bananas or fruits in cookies

    Looking for everyone's 2 cents....I know baking from scratch is healthier than store bought and takes so much better but

    NF has 500g of Mr. Christie's cookies (various kinds such as choc. chip) for $3.49 a bag so it doesn't seem financially feasible to make them from scratch once we take into account the choc. chips even themselves, any input would be appreciated.

    See ya later ladies

    PS looking for names for the September thread

    That one grocery bag of bruised crab apples turned into 3.5 yogurt containers of un-sweetened apple sauce. I will not eat it this way. It is way too sour. I froze 3 containers of it. The other 1/2 container is in the fridge. I am giving it to the lady that gave me the apples. I am getting more apples from her tomorrow. She wants to buy various stuff that I turn the apples into. Baking and possibly apple sauce. She is also giving me more containers that I can use. I am hoping to make more apple sauce tomorrow. It was REALLY fun to mush it all up.

    I'm currently making cream of mushroom soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. I tutor in less than an hour.

    Frugal - buying a new strapless dress online ($3) and converting an old bra into a strapless one with a few snips and tacks (FREE)

    Not so frugal - pedicure with mom and sister

    Frugal - DH sold two barn cars and parts

    Not so frugal - he is out using that money to buy a VW Super Beetle as we speak (this one is in running condition and will save him time and money, neither of which he has a lot of, on his current project). It is actually my hope he will sell the last of the barn cars (his VW Beetle) and put the money away for upgrades on the new one!

    Got a call yesterday from one of the stores that sells my towels. They`re right out so I need to have another 20 done by Thursday in addition to the ones I was doing for AnnaMae`s. There is a woman who comes into the store and buys 10-20 at a time. She resells them somewhere else. My hot wax bath is being used frequently.

    Feeling well this a.m.-thanks for the kind wishes. I do have travel health insurance( which I have never used before) so I can claim back the $ in Canada I think.. Out for traditional German food last night-too die for. One plate was too much for 2 people. Brought home ham on a bone and today making lentil soup with a %50 off round loaf of yummy looking bread.

    Good morning. Decided to hang laundry out to dry since it's sunny out but calling for rain later. Oldest DS is off on a road trip and youngest is still in bed. Have 2 pick ups this morning since I was planning on puttering around here till appt at noon. Then May head to Barrie to visit family and Costco. Really should get to basement and garage and post stuff for sale. People get the child tax credit today so they seem to like to spend it

    Ds and I found a kids basketball net on side of road last night. He loaded in vehicle and I sold it for him this morning. He can't believe how quick it sold and wants to sell everything now lol.
