Last week in addition to doing numerous hours of yardwork ripping out grass and weeds after our edging was done I also painted above the cabinets. This is not easy. I had to actually stand on the counter to do it. Yesterday I scrubbed the tops of the cupboards (gross! dust and cooking grease? scum) and then laid down newspaper so I never have to do that job again, just change the newspaper. I put all of the Mexican pottery back up and added our Mexican wooden turned bowl that we bought in Zihuatanejo last year. I don't think I've ever shown it but it's got vibrant fish inside and out. There is still room for a few more pieces up there so I can continue collecting.
It is raining today - and we intend to have a mostly lazy day as a result. I am actually happy about the weather, more people will behave here if the weather is lousy on a long weekend. That and we've got the yard work we needed to get to done for several more days completed. This evening's menu is homemade fettucini alfredo. We haven't made pasta for a while and are craving homemade pasta. I use a McCormicks alfredo sauce mix as when I've made it from scratch it is way too rich. This one is just right. It is a two-person job (at least at our house) to make pasta and takes 1-2 hours so we are starting early. We've never had much luck at freezing homemade pasta, last time it just stuck to itself into a congealed glob when we went to cook it after unthawing. Does anyone else have luck freezing homemade pasta?
I've just placed my online grocery order. Last time I was missing 9 items when I picked it up. I still go to other stores that are safer but unfortunately, they are more expensive so I still place an order with basics like canned goods at Superstore who is still offering to shop for us with no additional surcharge. I still feel like they wouldn't be good at social distancing inside so for now will continue to order online.
It does feel like hubby and I are the only ones wearing masks here when we go out, except maybe at Costco where more people seem to do it as well as the staff (not mandatory here like in the USA). We started our social bubble last night and had Mom over for supper, BBQ steak. We also showed her our new patio and furniture as she has seen none of it. I think it was nice for her to get out of the house. She told us she does miss in-person grocery shopping but realizes the current experience is nothing like the last time she went shopping at the very beginning of March.
Tonight will be our usual Saturday night old Svengoolie horror movie. We are addicted to these movies from the 1930s-40s, likely Dracula's daughter will be shown. Have a great weekend everyone and stay safe!
