A Shot and A Miss

Sunday was a gorgeous day. Just cool/warm enough to have the doors open to let the breeze in. I worked in the kitchen again ALL day. I ended up making more egg muffins, (They are really called mini frattatas) hummus and croutons. I cleaned up the house a little but Hank and Shooter decided to take out all their toys and have them all over the living. Oh well at least it was clean for about five minutes. Last week Jon was helping me with the studio lights that I am using and I think we figured out that we should get another one to put on the other side since it has some shadows that it is casting. I think that I am being picky but I want my photos to look great. Wait not great AMAZING. LOL! Jon went hunting at the farm again. He saw a deer, Shot and missed. Well that is not really the story but I will spare everyone. On to a lighter subject. Shooter is doing much better. He still cannot jump up on the couch or bed but he is able to go up and down the stairs which it good. I still cannot believe that he likes those pills. They smell horrible. 

A few weeks ago I found a great chore list that you basically take a half hour a day and clean a room. Well did start that but now I have falling off the wheel again. I feel like this is a common tread of a sudden. I am going to start again this week. Then that will give me more time to cook and take photos. Great idea! Here is the chore list that I was using, its from Amy Gregson's Blog. Check it out. You can even make your own since she has a blank one. Let me know how you like it and if it was helpful. I looked back on my photos that I have been posting each week and for two weeks in a row I have posted some of the same things. Oh well. I guess I must really like making those recipes or something. At least the photos somewhat look different.

On Tuesday we received our new Air Pump for our sleep number bed. For the past couple of years we did not know what "our number" was. I was fine with it but Jon ordered a new one so that we can have it wireless controller and then if that breaks again then all we have to do is replace that controller not the whole thing. Jon replaced the old pump with the new one. We were quite busy Tuesday night for some reason. I had dinner cooking, washing clothes, and Jon working on the bed. Oh and Jon ended up cleaning out his closet so I wanted to join in and I cleaned mine as well. It was getting pretty messy again! We got a lot accomplish that night. Now I just need to keep up with that.

It was a rainy and cold day on Wednesday. It seemed to get colder and colder as the day went on. I was so busy at work that I feel like the day flew by. On my way home from work I stopped at the store to get some caramels, sticks and a few other things. I got all the ingredients to make caramel apples which I am super excited about. Jon and I normally always crave pumpkins but I feel like it is too late to crave them. So we will make apples instead. After dinner we went out to the garage to start cleaning and getting the boat ready for storage. This year we are storing it at Jon's Uncle's house. Hopefully in spring we will not have a ton of water in the boat like we did this year. After Jon finished getting the tarp and boat cover on it he realized that the boat cover did not fit anymore since we put in a wooden structure. So he has to re-do it all over again on his day off on Thursday. Poor guy! I felt so bad that he has to re-do it.

On Jon's day off he was busy getting the boat re-covered again. Since the cover did not fit like I said earlier. So Jon ended up buying a new tarp and string again and covered the boat. He ended up doing everything at his Uncle's house which was a good idea since his uncle is a half hour away and we go on the highway. So the boat is nice and ready for the winter. YEAH! The garage actually looked even smaller when I got home form work. I could not believe it. The boat is gone and there is more room in there but that was not the case. Jon and I looked around and said to each other that we have way too much stuff in the garage. Friday is the big day of when the car goes into the garage. We are having a couple of friends over to help us get it off the trailer. Jon wanted to clean up the floor on the car since there was leave, rust etc in the car. So he said that he ended up throwing away about one garage bag full of stuff that came out of the car. There was also a ton of cat poop in the car as well. Gross. I guess it made a good home and potty for animals.
Friday was a busy day for me I had to get everything set in the system for when Monday comes for a new girl to take over. I am moving to another category to take over. The day flew by. Which I wish it did not since I had so much to do. I ended up taking m computer home to work on it some more so everything will be perfect for Monday. Jon ended up getting off 2 hours early so he was busy at home getting things ready to the big move later that night. He also finally cut the grass in backyard. I guess is was too log to bag so Jon just mulched it. Well at least the backyard looks nice again. People came over around 7 to help us move the car. I guess they thought that it was going to be a lot harder than it really was. It was kind of funny. there was about five-six people helping roll it down the trailer into the garage and it took about 5 minutes. Everyone was so funny afterwards since they were all shocked that it did not take longer. We all hung out in the garage for awhile. 

On Saturday I did not want to do anything. I just wanted to sit around the house and do nothing. But I did get out in the yard and started to clean up. I pulled out all of our veggie plants. I could not believe all the carrots and green peppers that we harvested this year. I am very proud of Jon and I with this years garden, We did a great job! Yeah Us! I ended up being on the internet finding other websites/blogs that I could follow. Later that night when Jon got off work we headed up to his Uncle's House to have dinner with them. it was great seeing them. I hope everyone had a great week. Did you do anything fun this week? Till next week...
