My parents are visiting, and as is usual when they are here, it’s been go-go-go! My sisters and I call them the “traveling work crew” because even when they say they are just here for a relaxing visit, we always end up doing some kind of project. Today they helped Michael and I straighten up our front garden beds and lay down new mulch. We took advantage of the 10 for $10 sale on mulch that Lowes has going right now and our front beds really look fantastic. We also picked up some lava rock to act as a barrier between the foundation and the mulch — something recommended by our pest/termite people that we have been meaning to do for a while.
While I was out picking up the mulch, I also stopped by Winn-Dixie for beef stew meat and smoked sausage. I now have four packs of beef smoked sausage and 12 pounds of beef stew meat in the freezer.I think my storage squirrel should be satisfied for a while, now. I have really been craving beef stew, so at some point next month, that will be on the menu.
For dinner we had NY strip steaks with mushroom marsala sauce — really yummy. Garlic mashed potatoes and buttery green beans on the side. It was a nice meal.
Of course, I still had school work to do today and so part of my day was spent on the computer while everyone else was outside. I would have rather been outside. 🙂
