Sunday was a day of rest at our house and we didn't do any work that day to day to routine didn't require other than a few loads of laundry. Today I hit the floor running to make up for it.
Curtains have been washed and are rehung.
Bedding is being washed now.
Daughter's bathroom is clean.
The living room needs vacuuming, but that is all.
The kitchen has received the brunt of my focus.
Refrigerator is cleaned out.
Microwave and stove are scrubbed.
Counters are washed.
The spice cabinet is reorganized after a few months of me just tossing things in as I finished.
I've finally gotten down to where there are only a few pre mixed seasonings I buy.
I'll still can't duplicate my favorite fried rice flavoring to save myself...lol
While I was there I went ahead and did some freezer prep work.
I froze 5 small bags of celery.
I'll use these in soups, stews and casseroles.
While I was at it I blanched 8 bags (with approximately 1 1/2 cups each) of sliced carrots.
Again they'll be used in soups, stews and casseroles.
I forgot to photograph it, but I chopped the last two of the onions.
They were large and filled a quart bag.
After they're gone I'll be switching to my dehydrated onion pieces for the winter.
(I've already switched to the dried bell pepper and mushrooms.)
This evening we'll be having a somewhat quiet night at home.
Homemade pizzas, wine, sparkling cider for those who prefer, and some finger foods.
(I was smart enough to prep and freeze some of the items and the crockpot will take care of the rest.)
Then the not so quiet part will begin --
we have a ton of fireworks to shoot off!
And to you my dear friends, I wish the happiest of New Year's celebrations however you chose to celebrate.
