    Default Waste Not Wednesday 2019

    Instead of starting a new thread each day, I'm going to post under this one thread each week. Feel free to post also.

    4/10 I'm going to visit my parents today and eat lunch with them.

    Tonight I'll take dgd to her practice so her dad can do some work at home without distractions.

    Not sure what dinner will be. I have plenty in the pantry and freezer. Trying to eat better. I think the arthritis is setting in. I know the junk I eat is what is causing most of my pain and weight.

    I want to look for a new bird feeder for the yard. I already have a shepherds hook and want to get something to hang from it. My deck feeder will become a flower box for the summer with a couple of hummingbird feeders attached. I have a rebate from one of the stores so it shouldn't cost me anything out of pocket.

    nice! need to find places for all our bird houses that the cats can't get too or be in the heat. so not much. had planned side of garage since we finally got that small piece of land back after years. but then dh did my thinking for me and said to the neighbour put the high fence all the way to the back so now can't put them there because the cats will get them. was going to hang them on the side of the garage.

    4/17 Cloudy day today, storm coming tonight.

    Need to lay some sod pieces before the rain tonight. Hopefully we can get that done.

    Not feeling well today. Not sure what it is, but not feeling like doing much of anything. So far it will be a stay at home day.

    Last night we laid some carpet squares at the inlaws and installed the washer and dryer. Probably won't get back to the floor until Friday.

    Dgd is spending the night since she won't be here this weekend. That little girl has papa wrapped around her finger.

    Not sure about dinner now. Needs to be something dgd likes and will eat. We may just take her to McD's unless I think of something else.

    4/24 Going to visit and eat lunch with my parents today. Dgd may be coming with me. Waiting for a call to see what's going on.

    Need to finish up a load of laundry. Towels always take more than one cycle to dry. Drives me nuts. Then start another load.

    We'll do more work at the inlaws. We'll be so happy when that is finished. Just needs a few things hung/attached and the bathroom and bedroom need a good cleaning and we will be done. Then to set up the beds. The rest is up to the other siblings. They need to help too.

    Dinner will be chicken with leftover mashed potatoes, rice, green beans and broccoli. Kind of a clean out the fridge day.

    Not much happening today since it is rainy and yucky. Took the puppy to the vet for 2nd set of puppy shots and then back home. Leftovers for supper so an easy day.

    5/1 Happy May Day!!!

    Stopped at the library this morning to pick up the books I requested. They were all in, so that's done for the month.

    Picked up dgd and we went to have lunch with my parents. My niece's kids are there too, so she has someone to play with. Came home and now we'll have nap time. Hopefully I can get a few things done while she's asleep. We stopped at McDonalds for a "soda lushy". She loves the frozen cola. She needs a lot of encouragement and things to make her feel happy right now and I knew that would do it.

    Need to make some new nectar for the hummingbirds. I've seen two. Hopefully we'll get more once they figure out there is food for them here. I love my little hummingbird area. I got some flower boxes and put them in the bird feeder we use for the winter. Then got a hanger that connects to the deck and hung two hummingbird feeders on it. We love it and dgd loves watching the birds.

    It isn't raining now, but will rain again tonight. It is so wet and the grass is getting tall, too wet to mow.

    I have ham and bean soup in the crockpot. I'll probably make mac & cheese for me and dgd. I'm having tummy troubles (crohns) so bean soup probably isn't the best for it. We'll see, I may just eat a little just because it's sooo good.

    5/8 Started off raining this morning, but has cleared up for now. It's supposed to rain again tonight. Ugh!!!!

    Didn't sleep well. We have one dog this is terrified of storms. The two big dogs got me up at 4:00 this morning then the phone rang and someone had hit inlaws tree. I don't know why they had to wake us up for that, the police had already been called. Never did go back to sleep. Tried, but no luck. My head hurts.

    I was hoping to go to Joanns to pick up a few cake items. Dh wants a good cake for his birthday and he watched youtube trying to find the perfect cake. So I'm going to pick up so new pans, because I don't have that size and some bake strips. I know we could probably just make some, but with the coupon it's not a bad price. And it will be cheaper than Amazon. Dgd will spend the night so it will be a good time to test out a cake before our birthdays. She loves cake. I also need to pick up a few other items from the grocery store.

    Dinner will be grilled chicken and rice

    5/15 Another sunny day. I'm afraid our spring is gone and used up by too much rain. Now it's starting to turn hot.

    Visited my parents today. My mom made my favorite meal for lunch for my birthday this week. It's so yummy. Macaroni, tomato, hamburger with fried potatoes and cucumber salad. Cheap, easy and delicious. Brought home some leftovers for dinner tonight.

    Put a load of laundry in to wash before I left. Still need to put it in the dryer.

    Dh will mow the lawn tonight, hopefully. Always seems like something comes up and we don't get everything finished. Needs a good edging this time too.

    Time to pick out the paint and get started painting before it gets way too hot to do anything.

    Kitchen is cleaned finally, now I need to declutter. For some reason everything gets dumped on the kitchen counters or doesn't get put away. Drives me nuts.

    5/22 Waiting for the next storm to come in. It looks like it could rain any minute. Got the dogs out to potty before it starts.

    Visited my parents and had lunch with them. Mom cooked frozen pizzas. She's getting better at not spending a lot of money on lunch for us. Last week was my birthday and I was fine with her cooking my favorite meal. Nice and cheap. Everyone else goes out to eat for their birthdays and my parents foot the bill. If I'm there, I always contribute, but most times, I'm not able to go.

    Not sure if we'll do anything tonight. Maybe get gas for the mower and fill the propane tanks. We've rediscovered grilling. It's quick, easy and oh so yummy. If we don't get out, we'll be just piddle around her. Always lots to do. If the rain hold off, we need to paint a white spot on the house to test some of the paint we've picked out. Putting it on the house as is, nothing looks quite right. I think I have the color picked, just want to see it not on top of what's already there.

    Dinner will be shrimp and rice. Dh's choice. We're again trying not to eat out. Dh even helps with the grilling. We save so much and we eat healthier and less when we do.
