It has been a busy week on the old homestead.
Harvey pulled down a couple of walls and the ceiling in the original basement. I helped haul things up stairs once again.
Then on Friday I spent the morning and most of the afternoon making Cabbage Bread for the winter.
I dried more green peppers, and various herb for use. Almost have the spice and herb containers filled.
Then on Saturday we made our trip to Regina to price out finishing items for the basement (floor coverings and wall coverings), do a bit of a stock up on groceries and cleaning supplies at Costco, Michael's and Fabricland. We also got to spend the day with Kris.
Kris informed us that he was offered another position at his place of employment. He now answers to another boss, the big boss of all marketing in Surrey BC. It will mean a bit of a raise and a job title. It also means we don't have to worry about him losing his job for awhile (the economy here is terrible for big machinery).
Here are a couple of pictures of my haul from Michael's and Fabricland.
Then it was off to Fabricland.
Our biggest expense was grocery and cleaning supply stock up at Costco. Once again the bill was close to $600.00. I did buy quite a bit of meat and most of the cleaning supplies will last at least 4 or more months. This does save us money in the long run.
Today I have been nursing my back and hips. I can't sit for very long so I only got a small amount of cross stitching done (part of Kurt's Christmas gift), a small amount of the shawl knit, a tiny bit of reading done and supper on the table. Perhaps tomorrow will be a bit easier. I hope so as it is my big up and down the stairs day, as well as working around the house.
Looking forward to having both our sons home for Thanksgiving next week. Must remember to make a birthday cake and pies for the weekend.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
