Things don’t always work out as you plan. My chore list has lots of completed checks but I found myself easily distracted while I was out and about today. I have been reading up on the zero waste movement and while I already am doing some of the things…I have miles to go. I stopped in to Bed Bath and Beyond armed with a $10.00 off a $30.00 purchase. I left with nothing. I went in specifically for a silicone baking mat but after holding it in my hand and really looking at it…I questioned it’s safety. Is it the next Teflon hazard? I don’t know the answer so I didn’t buy it. I walked around the store looking for something I needed and couldn’t find anything so I left.
I had already driven out to the farm to pick up meat for the next two weeks and stopped at the bank so at this point I headed home to get the meat in the freezer. One of my coworkers sent me a message about her late mother’s canning jars so I grabbed the Girl and headed back out. Some of them need more cleaning than others but I’m working on it. I inherited 21 half gallon canning jars and 41 quart size canning jars. I am still having food frustrations so hopefully canning won’t be an issue. You can use coconut sugar in canning right???? I guess I will be finding out…
The only other thing I managed to accomplish in the kitchen today was a batch of broth. I still drink a cup with my lunch at work and PT is under the weather so I couldn’t skip this part of my weekend.
When you are just drinking the broth you can skip the parts where you chop things up. Wasteful….yes? I am only one person who only has so much time…
The Girl needed her chemical K-cup type hot cocoa and coffee that she likes from Ollie’s so we stopped there today too. I ended up with these two books for less than $5.00. They remind me how much I wish I could ditch the fluorescent lights of the nine to five world….
My little buddy stopped over to pay the Girl for taking care of her dogs last month and she stayed a couple of hours and that was the end of my day. I sat down too long and it’s too late to get more than a few little tasks accomplished. Tomorrow I have a Lemongrass Spa party in the afternoon. While I am grateful for the extra income…I find myself questioning whether or not I want to continue with this company? I like most of the products but my upline’s upline is a bible thumper and to be honest…it annoys the heck out of me. Don’t get me wrong…every one has the right to seek out and find their own truth….but don’t try and inflict your beliefs on me. I have some serious thinking to do….
I was hoping for a better conversation. I had a “food frustration” trying to get my order. It really put a damper on my evening. I felt like I was interrogating the poor girl asking about the ingredients. She rang up the wrong salad and because I worked in restaurants for so long I was really concerned about eating the right salad. I ate it…it was good…if there was any foul play…I don’t want to know about it.
The whole food thing took the sails out of my good news too…. The Summer Solstice is on a Friday this year and I requested the day off. Girls night out is officially back!!! I won’t be able to have the massive bonfires of the past but I should be able to tweak out a little one. I was so excited about this and couldn’t wait to share it…until the food thing. I can see how people get frustrated and give up with this lifestyle change…it’s super difficult. I have been at it for more than two months now…I am in it for the long haul.
Yesterday morning I woke up with this song in my head…it’s not even my genre of music? I’m sure it means something but right now it’s a mystery to me…Zia
