Today is my monthly deep cleaning, I have been able to do little, maintenance wise the past 3 weeks, since my surgery. It's an expense I budget for, it's worth it to me, and due to my physical limitations with arthritis, never mind my time. I'd rather eat vegetarian all week and never eat out if that's what it took, in order to continue to afford this service.
Bfst was the usual: coffee/tea, OJ, cold cereal and milk
Lunch-2 kids carried bologna and cheese on home made bread, home brewed tea. I and DD will have home made soup, crackers..
Dinner: home made salmon cakes, using canned pink Salmon bought with a sale coupon @ Walgreen's, homemade bread crumbs (the bread heels are used for this), shredded veg, spices. Homemade tartar sauce on the side, using home made zucchini relish. Buttered wacky mac, and roast Butternut squash are the sides, and I am thinking a green salad as well.
Need to make some more tea today, as well as bread and some baked goods/treats for the kids. DD is working later today, may be called to work all day, as her boss fears not being able to get out of her driveway, that wasn't plowed and recent rains have made everything sheets of ice. Sun is shinning, we no longer need the driveway lights on in the early morning for the boys to get the bus @ 6:30 a.m., so Spring IS coming, just taking it's sweet time. More melting of the mounds of snow today and tomorrow, before another cold snap hits, and snow is in the forecast for mid next week. Ice dam update: since paying $$$ to have it removed, more icicles continue to form, much much less and much much smaller. No signs of any water penetrating into the home, so that's good.
