I CAN SEE THE WEEKEND
Isn't it amazing? After being retired for 4.5 years, I still look forward to the weekend. You would think everyday was a weekend day for us retired folks. Nope, we still have obligations during the week that need taking care of. Not to mention, 90% of my friends are still working so, the weekend is the only time we get to spend time with them.
Once again, we got our day started pretty quickly. My main goal is to have most of my errands/chores done by noon each day. Almost made it happen that way today.
Started the day by taking my car to get the air in the tires checked. After leaving there, I took the car to get it washed and all spiffed up, as hubby is going to drive it to Las Vegas Sunday. Once I got home, I decided to attach my dash mat to the dash. Our dashes boards have a habit of splitting here because of the sun and heat. With a dash mat, we do not have that issue. I cleaned out the glove box and the arm rest box. I wanted to make sure everything was all nice for hubby. Then we both went to the grocery store as they had whole briskets on for $1.88/lb. We love brisket and hubby does a fantastic job doing it on his smoker. I got the house plants watered, my antique clock wound and had lunch. As soon as lunch was over I made 2 loaves of banana bread.
My house smells so yummy! These loaves were made with rice flour so they are gluten free. Instead of refined sugar I used coconut sugar. I am sending one of these with hubby to give to the people who are housing him while he is up there.
Things are all done for the day until dinner time. (Pork chops with sweet potatoes and spinach salad) I will pick up some knitting and work on it for the next couple of hours. Don't tell anyone but, I cast on another project yesterday. If you want to see what I have on my needles, stop by on Sunday when I will show off everything I have going on.
After dinner the knitting will be back in my hands while we watch a little evening TV.
Until next time...............happy crafting!
