Just a short posting tonight..
We are still being blessed with lovely days although a bit cooler here in New Brunswick..
I kind of feel like I am beginning to see the
end middle of the tunnel here at home..
When we return home from the cottage it takes me a bit to get situated and then we go back to the cottage and bring home more
junk necessary stuff and I need to find more space for it all..
We do this about 3 times and since we have already passed that number and most of it is away then I think I am getting somewhere..
This week I actually cleaned all of my cupboards..
Hence the pics above..
Drawers and such..
Have you ever seen such a pile of platters..
I need to get rid of half of them..
As there are only the two of us here of most of the meals I did get rid of a lot of cloth napkins and placemats..
We only need 2 of these things..
I think everything looks better..
Terry put the pantry floor down and I got that all cleaned and reorganized for the second time since we returned home..
My living room is almost back to normal as I kept putting stuff in there and the dear man put away all of his tools for the floor and appliance hook up.. sigh...
Yes, I am beginning to feel normal, I think ... grin..
Next week, Lord willing, I will attack the bedrooms..
I need to weed out our closets and drawers and such..
My darling Mom is giving me a wee round table that
belonged to my Gram ..
I want to put it in my Sun room so maybe on Saturday we will get that done..
What a busy time of year, though, eh?
Love being busy when I can see that it is accomplishing something..
To be honest, the last month or so just felt like we were going in circles..
We would feel normal and bring home a pantry and fridge full of stuff..
Or just get situated and bring home all the leftover pickles, clothes and tools..
Get the picture..
Perhaps my blog posts will soon be back to normal..
Thanks so much for putting up with me the last few months..
I am starting to feel creative once again ..
Thank you, dear Lord..
Made a Chicken Noodle Soup for lunch today and mixed up a steamed bread recipe my cousin gave me..
I will let you know how it turns out..
My friend gave me the pepper plant..
Man they are small but mighty..
I am not sure what to do with them.. smile.
Chicken Noodle Soup...
For the soup I just cooked a big chicken breast in veggie broth (left over from cooked carrots), added some carrots, celery, leeks and a bay leaf..
Some herbs... summer savory, a garlic clove, red pepper flakes and parsley..
I let it simmer for about an hour then took out the chicken breast and shredded it..
I added some egg noodles and a spoon full of powdered chicken broth and let it simmer until the noodles were tender..
Very tasty and good for you, too..
Thank you for dropping by..
I received several lovely emails from some of you and so enjoyed meeting you this way..
I am sorry you haven't been able to comment due to me turning off the anonymous option..
I may try again, soon so keep checking..
We are having company tomorrow night for supper so I will post about that next time perhaps..
God bless you sweet friends..
