Simple Sunday

Today is a gym day and B needs platelets but not blood so that is huge. 🙂thankful-1081614_960_720

That makes it 14 days. The longest since he was diagnosed back in November. He starts the 4th cycle the first week of March so maybe we’ll see a better response. Let’s hope…

We’re in for rain again all week. Ugh… I can hardly stand it.  I guess they’re predicting flooding in the valley and low lying areas. We don’t have to worry that here but trees do fall over when the ground is saturated so…. let’s hope not. Our neighbor( who had the tree fall on the front of his house) has had a lot of work done already. All new electric box. Some inside work and actually he showed up with his son yesterday. So there’s still the construction that will have to happen but at least he has electricity now. I’d be worried about mold and wetness inside since the window was broken out and the roof was leaking.

This coming week is too heavily scheduled. He has labs and probably platelets Tuesday and Wednesday and then I have my oncology appt Thursday in Sacramento. I will be asking him about what numbers are we looking at for when I’d start treatment if it continues to go up. I’m guessing @ 100.  But we’ll see.

With rain all week there’s no outside time or gardening to do. The gardens and everything needs sprucing up. But it’ll have to wait. I was thinking of getting some pansies for the front door area but with the rain, it might be best to wait.

Not much going on in the decluttering. Things are all in good shape. I do have a small thrift store load (2 little bags) to drop off. Plus 2 bags of canning jars I really don’t need as I have way more than I need.

One thing I like to do in each zone as I start is to look around at what can be decluttered from that zone or isn’t functional anymore. So this week I’m in the living room zone which for us is also the dining area.  I think I could work on the bookcase some and stream line it a bit.UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_350.jpg

Definitely, need to move a few things and make it look tidier.

Dinner is Instant pot lemon chicken and asparagus!! I also made some rice in the IP for the week.

Pickles and menus

Yesterday, we made some bread and butter pickles. These are from our garden. S is a great gardener. She has plants all over. we bought those cool vintage style ball jars. Love that color.Image

Home blessing day is done( Flylady Mondays !)

im heading out to staples to get some binders for the picture reorganizing. I hope they have the slips. On line it said online only. I have coupons to use so hopefully it won’t cost me anything.I’m  faxing off my LLS insurance stuff. I’ll get the reimbursement in a month or so. Sometimes it’s sooner. It’ll help as I’m behind on my 52 week savings. I’m doing great with my $5 challenge. If you’re interested, it’s just when ever you have $5 bill you save it  and not spend it . I’m up to $200. It’s fun and easy.

Menus for the week:

  • Sunday: roast chicken, potatoes, grilled tofu , and delicious broccoli from the garden
  • monday : chicken tacos or chicken salad, not sure yet!
  • Tuesday:pasta night
  • Wednesday: Cobb salad
  • Thursday: spinach lasagna
  • Friday: pizza or Tacos
  • Saturday: Sammies of some sort.

Sunday night chit chat w/ out Carla

Finished a “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” , I loved this as a kid and still love it as an adult.

now I’m reading Evanovich’s  new book” Big Girl Panties” , not impressed.

Looking forward to getting my oncology appt over with.

Grateful to be doing all the decluttering and getting rid off stuff while I still feel good.
