I chopped up carrots, tomatoes and celery, enough to eat as salad today and tomorrow. I have a red pepper too, but I'm thinking of making pasta salad so I'll use it for that. I cleaned the knife, grater and cutting board so they'll be ready for the fruit. I also took the composting out, I guess I should have waited for the fruit for that, but my little refrigerator compost bowl was full so wanted to empty it.

Okay, I collected laundry and started the washer, then decided to try on two pair of jeans that have been sitting on my dresser forever. They both needed repair, I ended up cutting one down for shorts to wear around the house, and put the other pair back on my dresser since they still fit, they need shortening (one of these days ).
Well Cando, if you have to keep running out and bringing things to people, you will never have time for any work at home!
Hi Diane. That last roll took me forever, but here's what I did. Went thru mail/incoming papers from the past week * 2 pieces put on DS's bed *8 to be shred *empty box put in garage to be recycled *15 to be filed *19 bills into Office in a Bag (well, some are not bills, but things like registration for our new stove & paperwork to complete that with & for extended warranty if we want to take that out, etc) * 2 put with my book so that I will read them next... newsletters that I want/need to read. *9 coupons put where they go, 68 coupons put in recycle bag *82 papers put in recycle bag in addition to the 68 coupons above.
That stain was not there before the pants were put in the machine, Diane... so frustrating! Goodness! I hope that it is not something wrong with the machine, Yikes!
Next roll: "3" - Get potatos boiling. That could take a little while, too. Don't wanna!
Cando, You have to be careful with stain removers on khaki pants. Sometimes they leave a spot. Take some liquid detergent, pour it on the spot, rub it in a little and then wash it immediately. If you leave the detergent on too long, it sometimes removes some of the dye, and you end up with a area on the fabric that is lighter than the rest.
Goal: Create a serene, peaceful environment, free of clutter.
