The week ahead

This week is fairly open but there are a few things that need doing.

* I need to go to UPS and drop off a damaged book I received from Amazon.

*Then I need to go to USPS and mail a gift off to my sister in Conn.

* I’m planning on getting my Flu shot also this week. Not sure what day but when the mood strikes.

  • Still not figuring out how to keep the font while another tool is being used.??? Well, my tech savvy daughter said there doesn’t appear to have functionality for that meaning using lists and enlarging fonts. I may just email them and ask about it.
  • B will go to Home Depot and get the wood and contractors glue stuff. I probably won’t go but he can do it after his labs or some.thing.
  • The heat is supposed to abate by Wednesday. Let’s hope so. I really miss seeing blue skies:(

So, I changed the font on this and is way too big. go figure.

Tonight I making another Cobb salad because it’s so hot outside. I already made the chicken and bacon in the oven this morning so I just need to make a dressing.

Simple Sunday

Well, back to my regular programming here:)

Wow, our weather changed on a dime yesterday and now it is breezy and cool and just lovely. The high is supposed to be 82 degrees so really nice.

It was a busy sort of week with the dentist and oncology doctor but it all went well. My crown copay turned out less than I thought at $550. So that was good. The crown seems pretty sensitive to hot/cold so not sure if that will pass or ?

We ordered pizza out and that was pricey. I’ll go back to making my own pizzas next week. It was very hot Friday so it was convenient but too expensive just for pizza. ( well in my estimation)

Yesterday, I made zucchini lasagnas. I plan on cooking them tonight as it will be cooler and I can use the oven.  We’re just getting lots of zucchini from the garden, so I thought I’d try it. Then I had a lot of sauce leftover so  I made a regular noodle lasagna and then I ran out of lasagna noodles so I just threw some flat noodles in a pan topped with sauce and cheese and called it good.  Those I put in the freezer.

The FlyLady zone this week is the Living room and then on July 1st, the entryway.

I’m debating going down to the big stores this week to shop. But, I think I might try and wait a week and just get milk and cream and a few things down at our Holiday Market. I have plenty of stuff to use from the pantry. There are a few more prepper pantry things I’d like to stock up on but there’s no hurry at this point. I usually like to wait till we need coffee or TP to go to Costco so that’s still a few weeks out at this point.

I found a really great cooking blog called Just one Cookbook,

She is Japanese and her recipes are pretty good. I’ve made the yakisoba twice already.  Her YouTube is good also. I’m kinda on another Japanese kick right now. I’ve ordered a vintage Tenugui to use as a window covering. And also from eBay, a furoshiki to use as a window covering too. I’ve been looking at some Japanese fabric to make some pillows but haven’t found what I want yet.

This is the west side of our house and it gets very sunny in that window. You can see the window cooler which is a lifesaver in our bedroom. It is removed in the fall.
