    @SassyAshley Itís crazy how the people that are hired to repair things end up destroying them

    We didnít get to HD last night since I was exhausted so maybe tonight just before closing so hopefully it wonít be too busy.

    Going to start another day of cleaning and laundry , but first my coffee.

    I still havenít made it to the garden to plant some more stuff so I might try today (in between the rain ) and get my peas done and see if I have any more radishes. The last brand turned out small and crappy.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend

    Spent about 4 hours in the basement.

    When I went back down I moved some stuff off the shelves that were left in the Stockpile room so I could move the shelves. I moved them into the middle of the room and scrubbed down the wall behind them in case Mom wanted to paint.

    Nope, no painting, Mom decided she just wanted to rebuild the pantry as so much on the main floor is waiting on us having access to the basement again. Kind of hoping she reaches the same point with the main floor as I can build the hallway bookcase and we will paint later. I am at a point that I feel like all painting, although I know it needs to be done should wait for fall.

    The pantry is about 90% rebuilt. Everything that has been put back into the pantry has been wiped down and all expiry dates checked. We have a couple Tomato Paste that just expired so we will freeze those. As well I found some sweetened condensed milk that is expired, I was going to use it at Christmas but when I skipped Christmas they did not get used. I also have a Jif Peanut Butter that is part of the recall, I forgot to bring it up so will fill out the claim form tomorrow.

    Right now the only stuff that has not been moved back into the pantry is: flour, oils, a bin of rice and a bin full of various chinese noodles. Should not take us to wipe these down and move them back into the pantry. We did not get it today as our cart I use to move them around the basement is upstairs with the AC unit on it. Plus I was done, I was getting sore, my feet and back were hurting so I was done for the day.

    Not that I want to put off finishing the pantry but I have not gotten any meal/ingredient prep done. Thinking I might do the meal/ingredient prep tomorrow and finish the pantry Monday after work. Just trying to maximize my time. We shall see what happens tomorrow.

    Finally called it quits for the day. Dh helped me in the garden throughout the day. I spent a lot of hours working in the back yard gardens off and on over the last 12hrs. Thereís still a lot more to tackle tomorrow.

    Happy Sunday Everyone

    Up early and getting right at it.

    I got a new mattress pad a while ago because my old one the backing fell off so I could not wash it anymore. I did the research but I am disappointed, it is not as fluffy or soft as advertised and I do not find it as comfortable as my old one. I went to wash it today only to discover it will not fit in our washer even though the description said it is the same as washing a queen size comforter. I can wash a queen size comforter but this will not fit in my washer. Not only that I noticed the stuffing is bunching up and it not flat anymore. Really disappointed, I should have just reordered the one for Costco.

    My bedding is almost done, the last load of pillows is in the washer and my sheets are in the dryer.

    I wanted to also do Mom's bedding but we got an email yesterday they are shutting off our water at noon. It says it will only be off half an hour, hoping that is accurate as I need to do some kitchen stuff and need water.

    Working on cleaning our kitchen, dishwasher has been emptied and reloaded. Working on the hand dishes, almost done, I just have a muffin pan soaking in the sink, they stuck a little.

    Next is meal/ingredient prep for the week. Lost of stuff to break down and prepare so it can be quick grab and go for the week to come.

    I thought of something last night well I was getting ready for bed for dinner tonight and now it is gone. I remember thinking oh that will be perfect as it will use up the last of the older mushrooms but it is gone now.

    Dh surprised me with the most beautiful gift ever! He order a custom solid gold necklace with our pups nose print.

    We got our baby when he was 8 weeks old (we saw him 8 hours after he was born) and sadly we had to say goodbye 16 years and 2 months later . We are coming up to the one year anniversary and itís still the most painful loss for us so Dh surprised me with this necklace so now I can carry my baby with me at all times.

    Good news, the water was only off for half an hour but I had plans in place. I had one sink full of cold water for rinsing produce and the other full of soapy water for any washing needs.

    Got some of the food prep done but not all of it. It was going well until I got to the Romaine and all of a sudden it felt like things slowed down. Probably did not help that I stopped for lunch and ended up taking an hour and a half break.

    Tomorrow I will need to make my Salad Bar as I call it, various veggies to put in my salads and grate some cheese.

    My bedding is done, nothing like climbing into a nice clean bed. Might try to get Mom's bedding done tomorrow.

    I know I need to finish the pantry as well but we will have to see. I am not sure where to put AC unit if I take it off the cart. First I need to tidy up the dining room. Ugh, it feel a little overwhelming right now, there is so much to be done.

    It isn't necessarily the work that to be done that is overwhelming but finding the time to get it all done. This past week I have kind of wished everything would slow down and give me more time. But tomorrow is Monday and back to my work schedule.

    Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

    @harbie what sweet pics and precious memories of your furbaby, and now a beautiful necklace to bring you some comfort.
    That face! The expressions make me wish that our animals could speak.
