I planned out dinners through September 25. Yes, that’s right, 44 days in advance. Probably won’t stick to it *every* single day, but I’ve got the basics for all of them on hand.
Also planned out my canning/freezing through September. We’ll see how that goes. Have to do it around dh’s wood-cutting schedule, but produce from the garden won’t necessarily wait for dh.
Did our budget for next month. On a no-debt mission.
No, our mortgage is at least 15 years away from being paid off (my ambitious goal is by 2020, even though it’s a typical 30-year loan), but that’s also if dh never gets a raise. Which probably won’t happen because people like him are supposedly in high demand.
Picked a few blueberries and dh picked 2 big zucchini and 9 cucumbers today. Started giving cucumbers away.
Got a favorite zucchini recipe? Share, please. We’ll have enough to freeze pounds of it *and* to annoy our neighbors with it. Same with cucumbers.
Decided when in October ds1’s birthday party will be. Even wrote down on the calendar when I need to send out the invites. No idea whether we’ll get him a present or not. If we do, it’ll probably be clothes because he’s got enough crap.
Am seriously thinking of just getting a fridge or oven box for ds1 for Christmas. By then the basement should be in better shape and the house/car/whatever it ends up being could hang out down there. Hell, the kid drove an empty Coke box around the living room for almost an hour today. The simple things.
