A quietish day here.
Foster dog continues to live in our large spare room ( en-suite no less!) and to exercise whenever our cat is locked in a downstairs room. This dog really doesn't like cats, and I reckon our cat is not too keen on this dog either!, she's usually good with dogs, but not this one... Cats are canny things. We thought that he had been rehomed today, but unfortunately the guy who was giving him a "forever" home had some bad news and couldn't guarantee it would be forever. So better if the poor dog is not just moved on from pillar to post. However the situation here is far from ideal and is not fair on either animal. let's hope tomorrow brings some good news.
On clearing out the sewing room( I still haven't worked out how to load a photograph from my mobile to show how well I have done) I find I have 6 unfinished projects. The lovely neat piles of material and wools tempts me to start something new (especially Frugal Queens latest project...genius patchwork!) But I resolve to finish the projects first.
Like just about everyone else in Frugal world I have resolved to keep away from the shops ( not TOO difficult for me as I hate shopping) and feed us from whatever I have in the fridge , pantry and freezer. This is also is not in the least bit difficult as I am closet Prepper and have three freezers, all just about full! it tends to be butter and milk that I run out of as I no longer have milking goats.
Today I threw some cooked potatoes in the oven with some spare garlic butter I had made, with some chopped onion I then added a jar of feta cheese in oil ( good old Aldi) ten minutes before serving and we had this concoction with the last of the mushrooms from Lidl and some of my green beans in tomato sauce that I froze in the autumn. Oh yes and some home made bread. No pudding.. too full.
Iv'e just realised that all that food put aside makes us sound really greedy. Tho' D and I live here alone with our animals we are rarely on our own, being blessed with family and friends and our Shared Lives Guys so we do get through an awful lot of food.
As we have had no rain for four/five days now (Shhhhhh!) we can start to work on some of the vegetable patches tomorrow in readiness for the big spring plant. Excellent so long as nothing happens to scupper the plan !
To Bed... Thanks for reading
