We started our day out yesterday eating chicken salad in a lettuce wrap. I made it with leftover shredded chicken from the rotisserie chicken, diced celery and a little mayonnaise.
I spent some time browsing books on the Hoopla app which I get via my local library. I have made a list of what I want to read over the long cold winter. This is a great free service that you can get via most libraries. Mine also has the Libby app. I love the fact that I don’t have to leave my house and go to the library to borrow books. It is a savings of gasoline and time! Plus I don’t like going out in the cold and snow unless it is absolutely necessary.
A lot of my time yesterday was spent hemming two pair of pants by hand. I wish I was a normal size but even my size in short is too long for me. So they always have to be taken up. I could have taken them to the seamstress up the road but she is expensive and I didn’t want to spend the money.
The only small appliances that I leave on my counters in the kitchen are the air fryer oven, toaster oven, Kitchen aid mixer, and Keurig coffeepot. They are left out because I have a lot of counter space and I use them all of the time. I used to keep all the others in the basement but they were heavy for me to carry up and down the stairs. So Hubby built me some wire shelves in the garage. The problem with that is Hubby also was using those shelves for all the garage stuff and it was starting to encroach on my appliances. Plus garages get dirty meaning I had to wash the appliances whenever I wanted to use them. Plus the garage gets cold over the winter. So I wanted to remove them from the garage and put them in a space that would be convenient for me without having to spend money on something to house them. I finally decided to rearrange things that were in the guest room closets. I put a lot of things in the donation pile that I no longer needed. The guest room closet of the room that mostly adults stay in had a shelf of board games, card games and puzzles in them. I decided to neatly put them on the closet shelf in the room the grandchildren stay in.
Since the room where the adults stay now only has some spare blankets and pillows and my cases of canning jars, etc., I decided to put the extra small appliances on that shelf. It is right down the hall from the kitchen and they will stay clean in there. Dilemma solved and no money spent on housing those appliances.
Dinner tonight was taco salads. I made them with romaine, onions, sliced black olives, tomato salsa(for Hubby), guacamole salsa, taco meat, triple cheddar cheese and sour cream. Lately I have not been able to find decent avocados. So instead I purchased the guacamole salsa. I had never put salsa on mine so I tried the guacamole and it was spicy and delicious.
My supermarket ads came for next week. I only saw two things at Top’s that I need. But Aldi’s had quite a few so my two shopping lists are ready for me to go next Tuesday which is senior discount day at Top’s.
Tonight’s entertainment will be Thursday night football free on Twitch which we will stream to our big TV.
