Loads of Laundry

I don’t like doing laundry. I think it’s my least favorite chore. It’s the folding. I hate folding. Hate.

I had let my laundry pile up pretty high this time, but yesterday I did ALL of it. I washed AND folded it. Woo hoo! I think that kind of accomplishment means I won’t have to do chores for a week. Or at least laundry anyway.

I’ve moved my laundry basket into my closet since the getting the new flooring.

    Good for you!
    I always fold laundry while watching t.v. Would that help?

    Yay!!! Enjoy that high, sir. Nice laundry basket, by the way. (I notice that stuff now.)

    I, too, hate folding, so I’ve tried to eliminate as much as possible. Everything that can go on a hanger, does. All pants, shirts, and now even my jeans. I fold towels, underwear and socks and that’s it. (In front of the t.v., Deborah, as God intended. 😉 ). Of course, you could make it go super-quick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz6rjbw0ZA0. , or you can go the super-zen method of KonMari and file your t-shirts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lpc5_1896ro. She says you are supposed to fold with your heart, but that might get a little messy.

A Sign of the Times

We had parent/teacher conferences on Thursday and yesterday. We did masked and socially-distance visits. It was a little weird. It’s hard to read facial cues that way. Still, I think everything went well.

Dinner Party to Go

My friend Judy from church caught me on Sunday to chat. She said that having people over for dinner parties has been very important to her, but she can’t do that because of covid, so she has been delivering meals to people instead. She was wondering if she could bring me a meal.

Could she?!? Yes! Yes! A thousand times yes!

I had parent conferences until about 6:20pm last night. Judy dropped the food off at 6:30.

I took it home before I ate it.

The main dish was BBQ cups – barbeque meat in bready crusts

It was so good! It was the best meal I ‘ve had in a long time. I stuffed myself, then went to bed. Thank you, Judy! It was AWESOME!!

Peanut Parts

Ack! I forgot to post! We have parent/teacher conferences today, and I haven’t been going to sleep early enough lately, so last night I was fussing about going to bed, and stayed up too late, then forgot to post.

We have a snack break in the morning at school. I’ve been eating peanuts. Whenever I eat peanuts, I like to bite the tiny plant part out of the main peanut before I eat the rest. I think it reminds me of my nail-biting days.

A Tale of Two Taters

Last time I went to the grocery store, I bought potatoes. I like them, but I never buy them. I cooked one in the microwave last night. Actually, I cooked two.

The internet told me to set the microwave timer for 10 minutes. That was way too long. If I would have read the comments on that post, I would have seen that one person had his potato catch on fire after being in the microwave for ten minutes. Mine just shriveled up and turned super hard.

I cooked the second potato for five minutes. It was much better.
