Does today seem like Monday to you? Yesterday at some point, Vince said “I’m going to take off tomorrow!” and I said NOOOO!!!!
We had such a busy weekend — looking for those blasted back handles to the longarm, he felt like he missed having a holiday. Thank goodness he decided to go to work today.
I tell you . . I don’t mind looking for things I’ve lost, which I do on frequent occasions, but knowing I packed all those longarm parts in the original packing box the machine came in, the box that was designed to protect the machine while being shipped UPS, and those packers opened my sealed box, repacked all the parts, losing two screws and putting the back handles, the laser light and the thread guide in a separate box, which obviously isn’t labeled as anything sewing related .. that just aggravates the heck out of me.
I usually plan out my menu and make my grocery list over the weekend, and then go grocery shopping on Monday morning. With yesterday being a holiday and the search for the handles and the house trip, I never did a menu and of course, didn’t get to the grocery store. I figured I’d do all that today but Speck has to go back to the vet this afternoon (nail trim) and it’s still too hot to leave him in the car while I grab a few items and I’m not making two 40 mile round trips to town so . . thank goodness for baby back ribs I had taken out of the freezer yesterday. And, I’m so happy Vince found our cherry wood and I don’t have to use mesquite any more!
We haven’t stocked our freezer yet and all we have in there are steaks, ribs, brisket and sausage. I’m too scared to grill steaks with the fire danger outside. Vince said we could move the cars out of the carport, put the grill there and keep the water hose handy but I’m too scared to do that. One spark is all it would take to add another massive wildfire. Besides, the grill is in the storage building and I’m happy to keep it there so Vince isn’t tempted to grill before we get rain in these parts.
I’ll plan red beans, sausage and rice for tomorrow and then get to the grocery store during the day tomorrow. I do not do well when my routine gets out of whack!
