Summer Days

Backyard

These days are involving less cooking, not necessarily a bad thing.  We have had some really warm days up here, meaning no oven use.  It is also means I have close to no energy, being 39+ weeks pregnant now.  I helped the husband make toast with Fire Island bread this morning and rinsed some strawberries, that’s something.  He scrambled eggs with spinach and goat cheese

If you happen to be looking for some good store bought eggs, I recommend Vital Farms.  Their eggs are super flavorful and one of the highest rated eggs by the Cornucopia Institute based on sustainable, family run, humane farming practices.

I am working less and less so that should mean more time to garden and blog and organize, and be nesty.  But no, it means thinking about all the things I should be doing but can’t get the motivation to do because I don’t know where to start.  I did make a to do list, and yes there are things crossed off.

What’s left:

1. Finish cleaning out fridge

2. Organize stuff to donate/sell

3. Finish writing thank you cards for baby shower (they are coming)

4. Do work paperwork (I plan on putting this off for a long time)

5. Blog

 

I have accomplished things like paying bills, making some freezer meals, washing the sheets (yes I had to put the on The List).

Kitchen remodel

As much as I want this baby out, we still have a gaping hole in the kitchen, but it’s not as bad as it looks.  The main part is done, and we can cook, clean and eat in it, what else is there to do in a kitchen?  The husband is now building a pantry that will sit behind the fridge, then we should be pretty much done.  If you decide to remodel your home, the general rule is that it will take at least double of what you think it will, even if you have already accounted for that.  So if you think 2 months, but maybe it will take 4 because things take a while, it will be more like 4-6.  We were initially thinking 3, maybe more.  It’s been almost 8.

      She captures the mood of the room well. Baby needs to get a move on, I am too hospitable of a host I guess.
