Menu Monday

Another cold, rainy, windy day here. The rain seems to be moving into the area in waves. To think I have to venture out today.....

Anyway here are the menus for this week. As usual they are subject to change as long as I stick to the menus in the month.


Even though it is chilly out today we are going to have Chef's Salad. Kurt is coming home and will want healthy eating. Can't really get much healthier and I will be using up some leftovers as well.


Grilled Hamburgers and all the trimmings. I think I may make a macaroni salad to go with these. Hopefully the rain lets up long enough to grill.


Leftover Pork Roast.... This will be a stir fry, served over rice.


Clean out the fridge. There will be lots to choose from.


Tuna Pasta Salad, served with French bread.


Grilled Smoked Sausages, tin foil potatoes, and perhaps carrots.


Roast Ham, mashed potatoes, corn

So there you have it our suppers for the week. Our lunches are either leftovers or sandwiches so there really isn't much use posting them.

Everyone have a wonderful day.

God bless.

Nasty Weather

While it seems like my city learned from the floods of the past, it seems like others could be on a steeper learning curve.

We have received over two inches of rain in the last 24 hours with more in the forecast. However many places got up to 8 inches of rain causing major problems.

Thought I would share some pictures with you from around the Southeast corner of Saskatchewan.

We are very lucky considering some of these pictures are only an hour away.

Major highways underwater, people cut off and waiting to be rescued, basements full of water and worse yet sewage as things just backed up.

This area is considered semi arid and to get a downpour of more than two inches causes major damage to roads, homes, and utilities. Here is hoping the province manages to get everything back to normal as soon as possible.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Something the Garden Needed

Today the rain arrived.

You can't really tell in this picture but for most of today the rain has been steadily falling. Up until now we have gotten an inch of the lovely wet stuff. The grass is getting green again, and Harvey's garden is getting a nice soaking, something it desperately needed. Not to mention my perennial bed is getting nicely soaked as well.

What to do on a day when you can't get out to do any work?

Well, I did enter a few items in the budget page for this month, even found a bill I forgot to pay!!! Yikes, hope they don't charge interest if I can get it paid on Monday. If they do it will teach me a lesson I won't soon forget.

I also got into the sewing room and started the dreaded jacket.

I did not get it finished, but another hour or so should see it done tomorrow. And this will see the end of another challenge for this month.

This is the simple red knit pullover dress I made a couple of weeks ago. It has been hanging for awhile in order to get some of the wrinkles out from sewing.

I need to clip a few threads and it will be ready to wear.

The cooler weather was perfect for a meal of soup and sandwiches tonight. I pulled some frozen stock out of the fridge freezer and got to work.

A lovely large pot of Chicken Vegetable Soup. Served with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches it was a lovely filling meal. We have enough left over for some lunches or another supper. Once it has cooled more I will divide it up and freeze a container for later on. Planning ahead with meals that can be put together in minutes is a time and money saver around this house.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Friday Happenings

The day started out much like this.

Clouds moving in and out most of the morning. It kept us wondering whether the forecast was going to come true.

Needless to say, by the afternoon the skies had mostly cleared, there had been no rain, and the day had gotten very humid. So humid in fact that for the first time in about 3 weeks we needed to turn on our air conditioning. Still no rain, but I really do believe we will get something later this evening.

Harvey spent the day weeding his garden. Since he has been working on the deck nothing really got done and the weeds were slowly overtaking his plants.

Me, well I spent the day in the sewing room. That is exactly where I will be most of tomorrow as well. I really do want to meet my goal for this month and there is not much month left in which to do so. I managed to sew a top today and got out the dreaded jacket pattern. I am going to force myself to get that done over the next couple of days.

Hopefully on Monday I will have some lovely pictures to show you, as well as an update on how well I met my goals this month.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Thursday Tid Bits

It has been a quiet day on the old homestead. I had another trip to the dentist and so far no trouble what so ever. This is my kind of trip.

We managed to get everything back on the deck and even most of the yard cleaned up. Things are getting back to normal and I am starting to look forward to our summer at home.

I can't remember if I posted pictures of Harvey's "Lazy Kitties" so if I have forgive me. He now has them up on the new and improved deck.
Ahhh, don't they just show how relaxing summer really is!

My flowers are starting to come a bit better. We have had a bit of warmer weather and that is helping a great deal.
My begonia's are starting to bloom.
And what I call mini petunias are starting to fill out.

Ahhh, summer in all its glory is here.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

MidWeek Meanderings...A Bit of This and A Bit of That

Another cloudy, dismal day here in Southeast Saskatchewan. Rain was forecast but it never arrived, though the threat was there for most of the day.

I did manage to get a few more things stroked off my to do list and even managed to catch up on a couple from yesterday.

My first chore after the usual cleaning routine was to prepare the rhubarb I had cut a few days ago.

So I began to chop the stalks into small pieces.

Soon I had enough to almost fill this bowl.

While waiting for my butter to soften so that I could do some baking. I decided it was a good time to cut my scrap material into small squares.

All done now for awhile. Hmmm, I think I had some deconstructed jean material that I should have cut as well. Perhaps the next time.

I have been waiting for our mail person to drop off a package for awhile now. Missed her today and when I checked the mail, there it was.

For the first time ever I ordered something online and my four new patterns arrived today. As you notice they are all marked "Easy", my type of sewing exactly. Harvey really likes the skirt pattern, I really like all of them.

Then it was on to baking.

First I made this rhubarb cake.

A little too much topping but I love cinnamon and sugar!

Then I made a rhubarb loaf. Sorry no picture of this one, it is in the freezer. Probably not for long so I will share it with all of you later.

Lastly, today was the day the deck was totally finished!!

Tomorrow will be the final big yard clean up and the rearranging of the deck furniture and plants the way I want them. Hmmm, Harvey has to add the rest of the lighting as well.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Ahhh, The End Of The School Year

Today marks the end of the school year for me. As a sub you do not often get called in to work the final week of school. Though that was proven wrong for me this year. I worked on Monday as one of the regular aides was attending a funeral for a family member. It was interesting to be involved in the final year tear down of class rooms and set up for the Grade 8 Farewell.

Today was a busy day. I got caught up on a few things around the house that did not get done on Monday and completed most of today's to do list. Makes me happy to cross items off a list, a bit anal of me I know, but hey at least I know what I have done in a day.

After helping Harvey with some of the deck work, I came in and began (well really continued) my work indoors.

I had decided a few weeks ago to go through my scrap material and cut out useable quilting blocks. I did some last week and this week managed to find more that needed to be prepared.

I got these cut out a few days ago. Nice little pile of squares.

I have this stack of material still to cut.

I am hoping to get it done before Harvey gets up tomorrow morning and we start to do more work on the deck.

Since I started a challenge on a forum I visit I have been using up as much as I possibly can. This not only includes leftover food, but fabric, yarn, cleaning supplies and anything else a person can think of. I have a feeling this has saved us a great deal over the past few years. It also gives me a great deal of satisfaction that I am not putting as much in our city's landfill any longer. One bag of garbage a week, unless we are doing a spring or fall clean up of the yard. Even Harvey is getting in on it and recycling some of the lumber from the dismantled deck into shelving for the second garden shed he wants to build (or buy if he can find one at the right price). Got to love it when the whole family gets involved!!!

I also want to clean and prepare the rhubarb I picked. Perhaps make a cake or some more pies. Seems as if as fast as I use up items from the big chest freezer, I am putting more in. Hopefully I will have most of the veggies gone and can do a good defrost before the next harvest comes.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Menu Monday

What happened to Sunday???? Did not get a chance to post last night as Harvey seemed to take over the computer. I will catch up with everyone on odd days this week.

On with Monday's regularly scheduled post.

Another week is here and if the weather holds these menus could change to more the grilling type of meal. That and if Harvey feels like cooking after working outside all day!!


Steak, salad, and potatoes. Hopefully Harv will BBQ the steak tonight.


Leftover beef roast. This will likely be added to the leftover salad along with some thinly sliced onion and a mustard dressing to make a main dish salad.


The leftover Cajun chicken from Saturday.


Leftover pork roast.... Perhaps a stir fry as I have a few veggies that will need using up.


Breakfast for Supper. I think this will be the pancakes I had planned to make a couple of weeks ago.


Soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Lots of chicken stock in the freezer and I need to use it. Homemade chicken vegetable sounds wonderful.


Baked Ham, rice, and green beans.

Hopefully I get a chance this coming week to make a few desserts. I picked rhubarb on Saturday so think a rhubarb cake would be awesome, plus perhaps another couple of pies to go in the freezer.

Everybody have a wonderful day.

God bless.

Increases In Costs and Holding the Line

This month is a very spendy month for Harvey and I. I sometimes wonder if we will ever manage to make this a lower cost month for us.

This month sees the payment of our plates and insurance for 2 vehicles. I guess you could say for one vehicle, but we pay for Kris's plates as well. Both plates and insurance have gone down over the years and that is a good thing. Still $2200.00 is a lot to come out of the bank account. I do wish another insurance company would come into play here in our province, but SGI (Saskatchewan Government Insurance) seems to have a strangle hold on our provinces insurance rates both for homes and vehicles.

Hopefully in a couple of years Kris can take over the payment of his own plates but until then the car he drives is registered to me for a very good reason and he can pay us back as he can.

The other big spend we have is our property taxes. After years of small, affordable increases the past two years have seen large chunks of cash increases. In the last two years taxes have gone up a total of $800.00. That is a huge chunk of money, and something that now we are on a limited income is kind of scary!!!

There is no way to lower that cost so we just have to find ways of making up the difference. It's not like we live in a fantastic part of town, or like our house is a huge monstrosity. As our oldest says we live on what is considered the poorer section of the city or "the wrong side of the tracks" (kind of funny as the tracks do run down the middle of the town). We will need to make up the cash in other ways. That could mean I keep on subbing until I am ancient (which believe me after this week I do) or we move to a smaller center or even a place where the cost for property tax is equal to what we are paying now but closer to a variety of shopping opportunities. I could also spend more time looking for ways to save the extra cash. Something this big needs to be concentrated on, cut backs could be necessary so we will have to take another look at the budget.

How would all of you handle this?

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Thursday Tid Bits

No storms today even though it has been mostly overcast and dull.

I am nearing the end of my work week and the substitute work I have booked for this month. It is the end of the school year so I should be safe after Monday.

Thought I would share a few pictures of what I have been up to the past week and a half.

First, I used a sundress pattern and made myself a nightie. Turned out nice and comfy. Roomy too which is just the way I like my nightwear.

Harvey asked me if it was just a bit too flowery....... I however love the bright colours.

I also made 2 more pairs of shorts.

One more pair to be made. I love elastic waist shorts for working around the house. All that bending and stretching needs a bit of give.

I also made this dress.

I love paisley and this fabric caught my eye. The dress drapes beautifully and hides some of my mid life bulges.

I only have a couple of sewing projects left to meet my goal this month. Got to love it when things go according to plan, or at least close to plan.

No picture of the rug yet as I still have to sew the last of the burgundy cord on and it has been much too dismal to see what I am doing properly in the evening. Hopefully I can get that done on the weekend.

I have also started a Christmas gift as well as a red knit dress. The dress has simple lines and I should be close to finishing it tomorrow or late Saturday. The Christmas gift will take a bit longer to make. Youngest DS wanted a rug and so I am making him one. Hope to make a fairly large rectangular one to fit under his recliner.

Harvey is down to the final stage of rebuilding the deck. Hopefully that will be totally completed this weekend as well. He even bought some more powerful lighting for it.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

We are in the midst of a torrential rain storm. Lots of thunder and lightening. I don't plan on doing dishes until the storm passes. It could be an Old Wives tale about staying away from doing your dishes at times like this, but I am not taking the chance.

My computer is also shut down to protect it from any power surges, so I am posting from my tablet. What does this mean? Well there will be no pictures and very short.

I promise to post some pictures if the storm passes by quickly. But for now wish us luck in not getting washed away.

Everyone have a wonderful evening.

God Bless.

A Good Start to the Week

I spent most of yesterday cutting scrap fabric into usable quilt blocks. One of these days I will have to sit down and start piecing fabric together.

I still have a bit more to cut and hopefully will get that done sometime this week. At least before I add any more scraps to the collection.

I am almost finished the burgundy yarn portion of this circle on the rug project. I am hoping to get that done tonight and add some cream yarn. I will be posting a picture soon of what it looks like now tomorrow.

I also made a couple of new recipes. One was from Pinterest and Facebook to use up some of my rhubarb. I think it is okay, nothing special, but tasty enough. If you see Rhubarb Dump Cake, in any of your online searches give it a try and see what you think.

The second recipe I made was to use up some leftover ham I had packaged about a month ago and froze. This turned out very well even though I had to substitute some ingredients.

It was nice and cheesy. The casserole really hit the spot. Next time I may just try it with the correct pasta and the peas instead of the substituted green bean. I just wanted to use things up from the freezer and this seemed a good way to do so.

Off to continue making cord for my rug. Keep your fingers crossed that I use up that yarn!

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Menu Monday

Good morning, another week full of endless possibilities has arrived. School is almost out and soon Kurt and Kris will be home for longer visits. Got to love this time of year!!!!

After a year or two of posting my menus I noticed that I have never put in lunch or breakfast. That is mainly because either those meals are catch as catch can or leftovers from other meals that would only be enough for one person so can't be used for a clean out the fridge night meal. 


Leftover Ham made into a casserole. Casseroles stretch out your meat and since everything is cooked in one pot makes clean up a breeze.


Smoked Sausage, salad, and mashed potatoes.


Cabbage Rolls. I am pulling the last of the frozen ones making room for this falls cooking session.


Clean out the fridge. I might change Wednesday and tonight around I just have to wait and see how much there is in the way of smoked sausage leftovers. If there is enough I may just make something up with the leftovers.


Salmon patties, rice and salad.


Chicken breasts made in the slow cooker. Served with rice and some beets (lots of beets to clear out of the freezer)


This was going to be a pork roast night, but I think I will do a roast chicken instead.

Everybody have a wonderful day.

God bless.

Sunday Ramblings

Today was Trinity Sunday and our 10 am Mass was once again packed. I was second reader and got to read the exact phrase written in the above image.

While I find it easy to understand and relate to God the Father and God the Son I sometimes find it very difficult to relate to the Holy Spirit.

Today Father Brian spoke about what the Holy Spirit is and I find myself starting to relate a bit better. If I consider the Holy Spirit as Love then the whole thing makes a great deal of sense. After all God  and the son are both Love in the purest of all senses.

Today, being Father's Day we had a laid back day. The boys (guess I should think of them as men now) both called their Dad and had nice long conversations with him. Hopefully they will both be home soon and we can have a nice long visit.

Harvey went, or at least tried to go fishing, this afternoon. A lovely rain storm came up and so he had to come home. Of course the rain only lasted a few minutes, but it was enough to have him packing up and coming home.

I spent the afternoon sewing. I managed to finish off the nightie and pulled out the next pattern I am going to sew. Slowly but surely getting through all those patterns I cut out as part of my goals for this month. Once again it was too cloudy to do any cross stitching so I hope to get at that again this coming week.

I hope to post a picture or pictures of all the sewing projects next week, once they are washed and pressed fit once more to be seen.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Thursday Tid Bits

Just a few pictures of our deck almost put back together for the summer.

Tomorrow, providing it isn't raining I will be adding the cushions and another table. The few flowers that are left will be placed after the railings are redone.

Ahhh, coffee mornings on the deck once again.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Mid Week And Dental Visits

Today I made what is the first in a series of visits to a dentist. A new dentist, one who doesn't know me and who I don't know. My old dentist passed away a few years ago and this young one took over his practice.

Of course, I need another root canal and while I have never been bothered by root canals (I have had three already). This time could be another story.

Now that the freezing is out (it only took 6 hours), the whole side of my face is sore to the touch. I know the dentist was as gentle as he could be, but something tells me this one is going to hurt!!! I only have three more visits before all the work that needs to be accomplished is.

Before the freezing came out I did manage to get a few things done.

I weeded my perennial bed and the Hosta bed at the side of the house. I even managed to water a few plants and get a few hung back up.

I started some sewing as it was much too overcast to even think of trying to cross stitch and tonight as soon as I finish this post I will be back working on my rug project making cord to stitch on tomorrow.

Here is hoping for a pain free tomorrow so I can finish up in the garden. I need to dead head some mini roses, some petunias, and some Gerbera daisy plants. I also want to clean the front of my cupboards and finish sewing the shorts I started today, perhaps even starting the other pair I cut out.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Baking, Using Up and Cleaning

I think I am a bit worried about my upcoming visit to the dentist tomorrow so I have hardly sat still at all today.

Along with all my regular little Tuesday chores I managed to do a few others.

I painted the stairs to our deck. Harvey did the first coat and I did the second.

Hopefully by the weekend I will be almost back to normal. I can hardly wait to have coffee in my rocker out on the deck each and every morning this summer.

I took all the dried out bits and bobs of bread and made bread crumbs.

I even managed to use all the rhubarb I harvested from the garden yesterday (sure hope there is more) making two rhubarb sponge pies.

I also make a Rhubarb Dump cake that I forgot to take a picture of. As soon as it cooled I put it into the freezer.

I got a picture today from my niece Ashley of  her two little ones.

Rylan Cooper is 3 years old, and Aria Rose is 8 months. Poor Aria got a reflection through her face when I took the picture.... This is the best I could do.

I also did a bit of sewing cord to the rug project and once this post is done will start making more cord.

The item that I am most proud of however is that the insides of my kitchen cupboards are clean and well organized!!! Now just to give the outsides a good cleaning and one of my goals for this month is finished already.

Still trying to simplify my life, and by decluttering my cupboards I am one step closer.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Menu Monday

 A new week and more menus.


Chicken burgers with mixed veggies.


Baked Spaghetti


Glace and Eggs


Clean out the fridge




Hot dogs (hopefully BBQ), along with tinfoil potatoes and carrots.


Being it is Father's Day and Harvey loves him some pork chops, especially BBQ, I figure this will make a great meal along with a salad (potato) and pickles.

So here it is and some of you may have noticed that many of these menus are a carry over from last week. I don't know what happened, but having Harvey order pizza and us going away for a day, kinda shifted everything around.

Everybody have a wonderful day.

God bless.

End of the Week

Today is Pentecost Sunday and Father Brian gave a wonderful homily. He mentioned how the list of the gifts in the Bible is just a short one, and that there are many more gifts of the spirit that are given to each of us.

We are supposed to use our gifts and talents to help all those around us. The questions we were left with were how do we use our talents in our families, our parish communties, or city or town communities and the world as a whole.

Hmm, as far as the first three go I figure I don't do too badly, but the world...well that needs some work on my part.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

The End Of Another Week and I Have Been Thinking

Wow, almost a full week into June!!! I can hardly believe that May went by so quickly. My Mom always said that life went by quickly as you age. I think she knew what she was talking about.

Harvey is working hard on the deck. He is about half done now and hopefully we will be sitting on it enjoying the summer (if it ever really arrives) very soon. Tonight there is a risk of frost, so I have been running around and covering our tender plants. Sure hope this is the last frost warning until late September.

I have spent the last couple of days seriously contemplating my life and have come up with just one word.... SIMPLIFY. I need to step back and really concentrate on those things that are important to me right now.

Here is my road sign for the rest of the year.

I have some ideas on how to accomplish this over the next few months.

1.     Get off those extra church committees that seem to be heading no where fast. Perhaps I should say those ones where decisions are made without the input of all the members of the committee. I have had enough of being just a body to be used to do all the work.

2.     Keep better track of what is in my cupboards and get rid of extraneous "stuff". I have already started this cleaning out the cupboards in the kitchen. Still have a ways to go, but I am getting there.

3.     While I love working in the schools make sure I do not sub more than 4 or 5 days a pay period. I spend way too much time in that environment some months. I need to learn to say no.

4.     Cut down on decor items. Do I really need 35 doilies even if my Grandmother made them.

I am sure that as the summer goes by I will think of even more ways to simplify my life and in doing so make it more worth while to my family and friends. I will keep everyone informed of decisions I make.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Monthly Goals for June and A Bit Of A Wrap Up On Last Month

Thought I would begin this post with an update of how I did with last months challenges.

Out of my six challenges I can honestly say I have diligently been working on 4 of them and partially working on number 5.

It has been so rainy, cold. and I have been working so much that the walking and adding a couple of blocks a week did not happen. I walked whenever I could. I had hoped to be up to 22 blocks by the end of the month, but I am stuck on 16.

I also did not sew the jacket. Two reasons for this, it's summer and somehow sewing a long sleeved jacket just doesn't fit somehow. I also have run out of fusible interfacing so I hope to pick some up this weekend when we head to Regina for some shopping and a visit with Kris.

I still feel pretty good about accomplishing what I have on the remainder of the goals.

My goals for this month are as follows:

1.     Continue with the rug project.
2.     Continue with the Angel cross stitch I started oh so many years ago.
3.     Continue with my daily early morning walks and try oh so hard to add a block or two each week.
4.     Clean and organize the kitchen cupboards. I really do not know how they get so messed up with only two of us at home most of the time.
5.     Sew the patterns I cut out last month and perhaps get that jacket sewn as well.

Once my subbing at the schools is over with July should be a breeze for the goals I have in mind.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Monday, June 2, 2014

Menu Monday

Upcoming weeks menus, here we go!!!!


Leftover pork roast made into a stir fry....mushrooms will be used up here. Serving this over some leftover rice. Kind of like another clean out the fridge supper.


Cabbage Bread. We are getting very close to having the chest freezer cleared out. Then comes the defrosting and repacking of all of this years harvest.


Leftover Beef Roast. I plan on making a gravy and using the strips of beef I cut and packaged along with some thinly sliced onions and making open faced hot beef sandwiches.


Chicken Burgers and perhaps some fries...That is if we don't take off for our Regina shopping trip. The same goes for the next few days. Depending on when we go menus from here to the end of the week could change a bit.


Glace and eggs


Spaghetti and meat sauce perhaps a lovely side salad.


Roast Chicken and mashed potatoes. Lots of veggies in the freezer to use up so I will pick something.

Everybody have a wonderful day.

God bless.

I Thought I Was Done......

Mass today was beautiful, we celebrated another baptism and that ceremony always fills me with hope for the future of my church. Parents, trying to bring up their child in their faith always fills me and I feel the Holy Spirit reaching out to embrace those involved. Heck, the whole church for that matter.

This is the first Mass we have attended in our church since we have reduced the number of Masses on a Sunday. The church was packed, something the likes of which I have not seen in awhile.

Father Brian gave a sermon on how we need to be uncomfortable, not stagnate or go backwards in our faith to the way things have always been done. Certain traditions and teachings will never change (they have been the foundation of our faith for over 2000 years), but the way we practice them could. We need to embrace the changes and move forward.

Then this afternoon I traveled to a small town called Redvers for our Deanery Pastoral Council. I was finally going to get rid of one of my many hats (I have been divesting myself of these hats for the past 2 years), that of Chairperson of the Deanery Council. I did succeed in doing so but..........

No one would step forward to become the Vice Chairperson and I was nominated.......I should have done this.

However my Catholic guilt stepped forward and made me say yes. I did warn them that I would be missing meetings...quite a few meetings. That still did not make anyone step up to the plate. However my acceptance made 2 priests very happy, whereas my not taking the Chairperson position made them very sad. Foreign priests do not like change very much, they like what they know.

When I gave my report on what has been happening in Estevan I said the dogmatic theology course was done, and one of the foreign priests got on my case. Finally, filled with frustration I told him that the course was okayed by our Archbishop, the Bishops of Canada and my parish priest and chosen it as an adult faith formation. I think he knew I was getting a bit peeved, but the eye rolling by said priest when I mentioned that I was the person giving the course was the last straw.

It has been raining since late last night. Harvey says we have an inch already and it is still coming down in fits and starts. The rest of the upcoming week is not going to be much better either. We won't get much work done on the deck, but we should be able to make a trip to Regina to do some stock up shopping. I get to see Kris and make sure he is okay.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
