Books and Dust Bunnies

Gosh, another rainy day with no gardening in site.  A perfect day to hole up and read The Zombie Survival Guide.  Apparently I have a lot of preparations to make; it’s really quite exhausting thinking about it.  Just being eaten and getting it over with is actually starting to sound appealing.

Other than my efforts to enlighten and educate myself for the coming apocalypse, I also accomplished a few things around the house…

I tidied and purged my children’s book-case, my crafting book shelf, and my cookbook cupboard.  I also cleared out a bunch of old magazines and a few articles of clothing.

The children’s books all fit in one book-case again.

The sewing and craft books all fit on one shelf (crochet books not included)

Today’s purge pile of magazines, books and clothing

An hour or so after lunch, Maddie started acting all needy and neglected, so I HAD to sit on the couch with her for a while and cuddle/rest.

Then Mr T and Miss A came home and the pizza making began…

Taco pizza on a whole wheat thin crust (all handmade). Mmmmm.

And that’s about it.  Other than my unsuccessful search for some sort of eye drops to soothe my dust filled eyes.  Book shelves were very dusty … so itchy.

P.S. I still haven’t sewn the curtain.  But I did find the fabric and lay it out to remind me that it’s being neglected.

Thank heavens for rain

So glad it rained today … I had an excuse for not gardening.  Phew.

Instead I cuddled my dog, went for a massage (which was 1/2 painful and 1/2 nice) and made up a yummy lentil stew for supper (inspired by Leah’s suggestion ).

Lentil Stew over Rice

Ingredients:  Red lentils, stewed tomatoes, onions, celery, carrots, garlic, agave nectar, apple cider vinegar, curry powder, chili powder, salt.  Serve over rice.  Gobble.  The end.

The rain did eventually let up and I needed to escape from a certain someone (who might just be a teenage girl) who was driving me bonkers, so I hosed off the trampoline and the play structure with a very violent spray of water.  Great way to drown out the craziness.  Silas and Isaac, come quick before the spiders and mold comes back!

I purged magazines!  It was delightful.  I made a very weighty stack and Mr T has promised to carry it downstairs for me.

Sir W visits every Thursday evening, so we hung out and he told us about his plans to build a nuclear, hand-held weapon that shoots a kind of force field at the target.  I couldn’t figure out whether it’s lethal or not.  He said it does NOT have a safety.  Apparently he’s been researching atom splitting.

And I think that’s about it.  Leah mentioned popcorn on Facebook and now I’ve got a hankering, so I think that’s next on my agenda.  I may also see if I can find some more stacks of magazines to throw out!
