Well, we have reached the end of this the first month of a new year. Really not much has changed so far. We are still wearing masks, limiting our trips to the grocery store, and hoping to have a jab sometime soon. Though the jab might not happen until much later.
We still have anti-maskers, and anti-vaxxers roaming the streets causing problems. We had people calling for a lock down of our boarders and now that we have one, well they are yelling about that (recognise some of the names). These are the same people who were screaming that we should be doing what New Zealand is doing and now that we are, well they are screaming their rights are being trampled on. I feel sorry for those in government as they are never going to please these people no matter what they do.
Project declutter has gone very well this month, and hopefully will continue to do so next month. I rid our home of 376 items, and will be going through my closet once again. I am sure there are a few more things that can be donated.
Using up the various craft stashes as well. I am working on the 6th ball of yarn right now, and my bits and bobs that I use for the temperature blanket are slowly but surely going down. If I think there is enough I may make one for when our youngest was born. The more knit blankets and quilts we have the better prepared we are for a power outage. We had one of those during our wind storm this month and the power was out for 6 hours. Thank heavens most of it was during the night.
I am also busy using up those frozen packages of meat. I am hoping to get the fridge freezer cleaned out again during the month of February. Most of those frozen meat packages are ham so I will be interspersing other things between using them up. Most times I manage to cook once and eat twice lately. Guess I am still over cooking since the sons were home.
Also I am making big salads and storing them in a Tupperware type container. We can nibble on that for a few meals and lunches. Saves me lots of time in the kitchen doing it this way.
I did not get all my projects done this month, think I might be project fatigued. Hopefully more will be done over this coming month.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
