So here is our crazy week that we have had. On Monday David and my dad (pappy) put in the hardwood floors in the dining room and foyer. They started sometime after 9am and finished up around 4pm. They came out really well! they did a great job! I tried to help picking out boards...even cut a few! but i was not a key player! Tyler was interested in hitting the boards for all 10 minutes. but he did get geared up for the job!! Safety first with Tyler the builder!!!
Well that shot Monday, we didnt do much else! In bed by 9pm! It took me time to reorganize the furniture in the living room since we took out the 1/2 wall. Plus i had alot of cleaning to do. funny story....when the flooring was about 80% complete i jokingly told david....maybe we should take down the wall between the dining room and the foyer! I thought he was going to kill me! i was just kidding!! Wait till i tell him what i want to do with the Kitchen!! I asked David if he wanted us to put hardwood floors in the kitchen and he said nope. So if I want new flooring in there i will need to get tile i guess.
Other house news: I put up my fall decorations. No Halloween stuff yet just my fall leaves! get us in the festive mood! I really want some homemade mac n cheese or chicken riggies. Every year i try and decorate on Labor day weekend. I guess i missed it by a day!! close enough for gov't work!
Peppers!! Wednesday was crazy, we had dinner, and then worked in the yard! Tyler picked up all the apples that fell so that some day david can mow the lawn! I had some red peppers ready, so i thew them on the grill and roasted them! I now have 8 roast red peppers to use! I love roasted red peppers! in salads, in pasta, on sandwiches. "YUMM-O" Rachel Ray. Bye friday or saturday i will have more to do! its so easy and its saves you so much $$ they are so expensive in the store.
Tomatoes: I still have so many tomatoes left. i could make more sauce but blah...Not really in the mood! lol !! I stole an idea from Jenny! I put some on my dehydrator and by this morning I had sun dried tomatoes!! I still have 29 tomatoes left. I think i am going to freeze them so i can use them this winter. I have searched for great ideas, some are pretty good but i want something quick i have played with too many tomatoes this year!
Zucc: I still have a ton left. I found a apple zucc bread recipe that sounded yummy i may try that. Since i how have sun dried tomatoes and roasted peppers, i figure i will be making some yummy dips so i am drying some thin zucc to see how they taste as chips. If the chip idea doesnt work out i will throw them in soup! In the last 2 nights i have made 4 more loaves of zucc bread. I dont know what else to do with it.
Squash: i am ready to put it by the road with a free sign. we have so much its out of control.
so that is about it on the home front. I will be at girls weekend from saturday morning till sunday afternoon! i can not wait to go scrapping!! Starting Monday, work is going to suck...OT most every night and on weekend. 26 days to go!! I will be living off coffee! Glad the crunch open up on 13 October! and NHL like the last full week of September. I will need to get my frustrations out! So what do you think of the hockey mom running for VP???
I know that tyler has said some funny things but i am really tired i can not think of anything at the moment. Have a great weekend!
