    It has been a week already.

    I spent pretty much all of Sunday in the kitchen getting things ready for this week. I made three different Instant Pot recipes, Teriyaki Chicken Bowls (needs some work, had to cook it twice and veggie did not steam as recipe said), Chicken Hibachi (made this recipe before, we like it) and then for Dinner because I did not want to cook Lazy Instant Pot Lasagna.

    Used all older produce in the fridge which was my goal but realized when I went to put dinner together I forgot to chop the romaine for the week.

    Monday was insane as I prepped for the week but I did take a 15 minute break and got the lower cabinets washed, I know you should go top to bottom but I did not have standing in a ladder in me. I also cleaned the outside of the stove.

    Today was a branch day. In the next 3 weeks starting this week I was supposed to visit every branch to help with the launch of a new online program but the launch has been put on hold. So now I need to rework the upcoming weeks.

    Today Mom harvested all our remaining herbs and they are in the dehydrator now.

    Today was insane so much going on, already ready for the weekend but it is only Tuesday.

    Happy Tuesday

    Ugh coupongirl so sorry to hear you have Covid. I feel like a walking time bomb because I feel eventually we are all going to get it. I was in the office today and honestly so few people are wearing mask on the GO and itís almost as full as pre-pandemic. Thankfully the office is still pretty thin so we all feel safe and the cleaning is next level.

    Thanks for all the comments everyone .
    I got a better sleep last night my neighbour called asking if i needed anything this morning -not yet.
    I willl test hubby maybe tonight ,he has no symptoms so maybe he may not get it .I opened all the windows and wiping everything down ,staying in my spare room.

    I did just sit out back on my deck just now for 15 minutes as this is the last nice day.Hubby told me he will hang the clothing on the line for me .

    Just a low grade fever and my nose is not dripping like it was yesterday .

    Good Morning!

    Had a massage appt. first thing this morning. Haven't had a coffee yet! Guess I will wait and have one this afternoon.

    Bedding is in the washer. Then will make bed and put on comforter that I washed at the laundromat last week. Ready for the cool nights (its better then the duvet... i usually use it all year long)

    Apparently DS ate all the sandwich meat I thought I stocked him up on. Grabbed the last one at Walmart this morning. (its the best deal I have found) Will watch for them to restock and get more to last to the expiry date.

    Enjoy the day!

    Ancaster has been darkening for the past 10min-storm or rain time! I managed to rake some of the leaves yesterday (so dry) and get them bagged for next week.

    Snuck online when I realized I haven't heard Bro for awhile. Looking forward to temperature drop tonight and tomorrow. Just cleaned up my photo files on USB.

    Um, the stress is back with family (Mom's not happy with my pitch and toss but I am). They got home at 5pm. Bigger luggage is stuck somewhere in Europe-they were on the morning flight that got late to connecting airport so only carryon bags came with them. Airline's to send big luggage here eventually. Most of planned visits they had went well except the one cousin (I called it! I knew she'd stunt again) flaked again for 2nd time in 5yrs even though on phone call prior to trip she said ok, come on over. No contact made with male relations-no starting point except general area where they live.

    Looking forward to paper bundle and flyers tomorrow. Got my bank statement in mail yesterday but no exciting treasure or promo mail.
    Glad I have tea-making a point of having a cup every morning!

    Good Evening,
    Today was another branch day but the manager was in today so I only stayed for a half a day so I could come home and be me.

    On my way home I stopped and grabbed a few things before the sales changed.

    I needed to run into Wal-Mart for more Oregano pills so since I was there anyways I grabbed 3 x Mushrooms $0.84.

    The to Food Basics to grab:
    2 x Raspberries $1.88
    2 x Clementines $1.88
    2 x Broccoli $0.98
    1 x Cheez-it $1.98 (Mom say these and said she wanted to try them)

    Then to No Frills for:
    2 x Green Onions $0.79
    1 x Naturally Imperfect Peppers 2.5 lbs $3.99
    2 x Bleach
    1 x Milk

    Mom texted me well I was in the store to ask if we had more bleach so on a whim I checked the price and it was on sale, it is 2.4 L for $3 something, was cheaper than the no name.

    Still need to look at next week's flyer and see if there is anything we need.

    Dinner tonight, we made our own version is a Chicken Sandwich, we used Chicken Breast Halves, Dredged them in Egg and Flour and pan fried to make sandwich (a rip off of a Big Crunch or Big Mary) and I made Air Fryer Fries on the side. It was good and it wasn't take out, I have so been craving a Chicken Sandwich.

    Happy Wednesday

    At first I thought this was a joke, but no, it's definitely not. I hope posting it here doesn't offend anyone.
    @coupongirl I hope you are starting to feel better.

    @barbis9 wtactual F?? She must have a screw loose, even though she teaches shop!

    @coupon girl that certainly is a bummer to have a repeat of covid. If this was a lottery you'd be considered so lucky! ( sorry, nervous humour here )
    As far as un-vaccinated persons making sweeping judgements about vaccinated persons getting infected, it's like you said.... at least you've not been hospitalized, intubated or worse.
    Thankfully a bad cold and headaches appear to be the default setting of symptoms. Hope you get back to normal soon, and praying your DH can avoid catching it so you two can have a belated celebration for your b'day and Anniversary!

    Good Morning Everyone,
    It is a work from home day and I got A LOT to get done. There are a few things on my plate that are larger tasks and need focus.

    I took a look at the flyers last night and there are some good deals out there to be had this week but it looks like another week where I am going to have to go to most stores to get what I want. But with that being said, I am thinking I might go to No Frills, see what I can get and then what they won't Price Match I will go to the store to get.

    I see there are some baking supplies on sale I want to stock up on, the prices are comparable to last year. But there are other supplies I am hoping going into Christmas we might see some better prices (i.e., Flour, WOW the bags I was buying for $7.99/$8.99 are now going on sale for $10.99/$11.99 and Oil, OH MY GOSH what is up oil prices, they are insane).

    It looks like cooler temps are coming our way and I am all for it. I want all of the Fall comfort foods. I see Food Basics has Cauliflower on sale and I am already planning a Roasted Cauliflower soup for next week. So excited.

    Happy Thursday

    Good Morning! Cold damp rainy day here to start. Good day for working at home and then house stuff.

    Breakfast was coffee and eggs with rye toast. Tidied the kitchen. Washed pan by hand and other dishes in dishwasher.
    The fridge needs a clean out so that will happen today. Only thing we need grocery wise is lettuce.

    Goal after work is to clean the hall entrance and put my orange lanterns out on the entrance table. My Fall decorating will then be done lol.
