I got up today all gung ho to get some things done.
I got the kitchen dishes done before Master got up when I realized that the dishwasher wasn’t working quite right. I don’t think it’s worked right for a long time. I stuck my hand in there during the wash cycle and the water was cool. Not warm, not tepid, definitely not hot. No wonder my dishes aren’t getting clean. So I called the landlord to put a service call in. Wiped down all the surfaces, swept the floor, fed the kitties.
Master got up and I made his coffee and picked up the living room. While he was getting ready to go to work I got the living room picked up and then moved into the bathroom.
One of my kitties doesn’t like to squat to potty, so I’m constantly gifted lately with puddles. I have had enough. I mopped it up and then went off to find another solution. I found 55 L tub and cut a hole in the side. Their old box fits into this one perfectly and it gives it another 3 inches in height so if he needs to puddle it is still contained. I’m also hoping it will help with the smell. I’m a good kitty mommy, I swear! Swept and mopped up there.
Mom called and talked my ear off about cheap decorating ideas for my nephew’s basement bedroom, I got her sold on learning to make homemade laundry powder for Christmas presents and she wants me to make bread, more hot cocoa mix and lord knows what else. It’s going to be a homemade Christmas I think. Which is fine for me. I feel good when I give them things I’ve made and they enjoy it.
I did a load of laundry, took out 3 loads of trash and then went grocery shopping. I bought the flavorings for the homemade yogurt I will be trying soon. Next shopping trip I hope to get the canning jars. Then I just need milk and plain yogurt starter (yogurt with active cultures). With homemade yogurt we’ll be saving money and the planet. Yogurt is expensive, the plastic containers are waste and homemade yogurt lasts longer, can be made into greek yogurt or quark (a yogurt cheese).
I’ve been busy.
And after dinner I will try to go to the gym and get a decent night’s sleep.
Speaking of sleep…. Master and I both are tired of sleeping in separate beds. If you recall we do this because he’s a sensitive sleeper and I snore really bad. Not a good combination. The solution is to get my ass to the gym more often and lose weight. I need to keep my eye on the prize- sleeping with Master again.
Tomorrow I have a lot of kitchen food prep planned. I’m going to roast some root veggies (parsnip, rutabega, sweet potato, peppers and onions), cut all the onion and peppers I have and freeze them, saute my mushrooms and freeze them, cut up all the celery and carrots I have and freeze them or put them in the fridge for munches. Make deviled eggs for snacking, crock pot TVP “oatmeal”, sausage-pepper-mushroom breakfast cups for freezing, almond thins (like wheat thins for LC diets) and if I have time some no fruit fruit leather. Yeah. I hope I can get through all that.
I postponed my Dr’s visit to mid-October so that I have a bit more available cash until then. I’m not looking forward to interviewing a new Dr. I just hate it.
Master has been working hard on Kink Network things he wants to get Kinky-Blogging out of Beta soon and then he’ll work on Submissive Guide to get the community improvements there. We’d like to be profitable by the end of next year so a lot of work has to be done yet.
