This is what I am supposed to be doing. I told the Hunny I would paint today. He put the roller in the freezer and it is frozen solid. That is my excuse anyway. I am feeling unbelievably lazy today. The weather is insanely gorgeous, the windows are open, the fans are blowing. I am in vacation mode. Not in the big project paint, bend over and stretch mode. Not feelin it.
And hungry. Seems I am always hungry. I am by myself. That calls for a great brunch. Coming right up! I can however work up a bit of enthusiasm for this.
Yesterday the Noble Pig posted about a cake that has sauerkraut in it. It passed the test of her man and boys. I am too curious not to try this. Maybe today, maybe not, like I said I am feeling lazy. We have not had a desert for a long time. The cake has peanut butter frosting on it.
I can't in good conscience waste the entire day. So my big agenda is to put labels on my spices. I cleaned out the spice cabinet and have put fresh herbs in unmarked jars. I used to keep spices and herbs for years. I have been converted to toss them periodically and start fresh. I like unmarked jars better and buying herbs bulk from Fresh Market. When you start to have a lot of jars with no labels you better have a very good nose. I can tell but just in case somebody else might want to know...
I bought this little nifty label maker. It cost too much, it was $20. I think that is ridiculous but I paid it because I went to the store for this. If you go to the store for something and it costs more than you think it should, do you buy it?
I am now not so smart for buying my herbs bulk.
I have just made saving money more expensive.
There is always a catch.
If a fool and his money are soon parted, then I know where I fit in. I can't go to the store and get out for less than a $100. We are however going to a cash system. I may be in line counting the change in the bottom of my purse soon. GAH!!!
It did however give me a bit of satisfaction looking at the nice labels of the jars that can be recycled, by me, and re labeled. I did find the jars at the Goodwill, but that isn't really helping me get over the 20 bucks for labels. Yeah, I am the lady who was commenting to "no reply blogger," and also my favorite color is clear. What's your excuse?
