Busy, Busy, Busy

It has been a busy couple of days. Yesterday when my husband came home from work at 2:45 he decided he wanted to put the cornstalks and hay bails  on the front porch. I went out to supervisor and we moved them around until I liked how it looked. My digital camera is broke so I bought one of the disposable ones and when I take it in I have them put the pictures on a cd so I will take a picture of the porch.  I seen 2 big pumpkins that I wanted. They were only $2.99 a piece. I may go get them tomorrow at Cub Foods. I want to put 1 on each hay stack.  My hubby then decided he was going to cut the grass so I asked him if he wanted me to pick up all the black walnuts on the ground and he said yes. I decided to rake them and the leaves at the same time. I am so out of shape that after a few minutes I started sweating

and was out of breath. My daughter came and helped me big time. My hubby also came and helped. I was watching the football game and I kept taking a break to watch it. I go outside because I figured that we lost with only a few minutes left. My hubby goes inside and comes out and says the Bears won. I couldn't believe I missed the final play. No more racking for me. LOL  

This morning after I took my daughter to school I went to get a few groceries so I could make about 7 different meals/desserts. I went to the store looking for tahini. I didn't know what it was and I know I should have looked it up on the computer but I didn't. It is an ingredient to make hummus. I just love it. I sometimes buy the store bought kind but wanted to make it myself. I didn't find it. I come home and look it up and it is sesame seed paste. Duh!. I should have maybe asked someone at the store.

I only made 4 things today because when 1pm came along I was so tired. I made a peanut butter pie, barbecue pork in slow cooker, creamy cole slaw and baked rotini with Italian sausage. I wanted to make a carrot cake and raspberry cream cheese bars but ran out of steam. As you can see I like to cook. The only reason I cook so much at once is so I don't have to cook all week. With my hubby's hours I never know when he is coming home for lunch so he doesn't mind microwaving his meals.

I keep adding to my list of things to do tomorrow. I want to run to the bank and get a roll of quarters because I want to do all the bedding and pillows at the laundramat. My next washer is going to be a big one. I want to also slice about 50 to 100 jalapenos and put them in a vinegar water solution and put them in the refrigerator. They are suppose to last a long time. We will see.

 Well, 4:30 comes very fast. Have a good evening.
