Laundry Lines and Rain

Happy Spring to All!!! How fabulous that we made it through another winter. This past winter touched me in ways that I will always remember. I am happy that nastiness has pasted and we can move on to warmer pastures ( so to speak).

Grim hung up my close line! Haven't used it as of yet though, to much rain! Hello Spring Rains! I am so happy that I have my rubber boots! Hang on let me go get them and get a picture.

I got them last year near the end of the rainy season, so they didn't get used much. But I can see that they are going to be a life saver.

The past couple of days I have strayed a bit on the diet... not the exercise though. So tonight, we had a big salad (love yogurt ranch dressing) mosstacholi and green beans (steamed). It's hours later and I am still full. Gotta love them veggies!!! I still am about the same weight I have been at for the last couple weeks. But I have been building muscle mass. And since muscle weighs more then fat that is what I'm figuring has happened. I'm ok with that, the clothes are fitting better and people are starting to notice the differences. YEAH ME!!!

Grim was suppose to go back to work tomorrow, but there has been a hold up due to paperwork issues. So hopefully, he will be back to work one day next week. Just when I thought he would be gone.... LOL! Really, I think I am going to have a hard time adjusting to him being gone. Nope, no 9-5 job here. He works on call and the shifts could be 10-16 each and everyday, not to mention if there is drive time too. The pay is good, as is his job. We are thankful that he has one to go back to.

We are smarter with our money now that he has been off for almost a year. So if something else were to come up, I know we will be fine. There are only a few small bills left for us to pay off. I feel that those will be done by the end of the year. Then we will only owe on the vehicles and the house. Not to shabby, considering where we came from. But I digress!

Anyways once he is back to work I will be able to get back to baking. I found some really good recipes that call for white bean puree and bean flour. If you don't want to wait for me to try them out and show you, you can go to Deals for Meals. I still have flour to use up before I can get started on grinding my own.

Speaking of grinding my own. Do I need to sift it to get the ground shell out? Since I have never done it before I thought I would ask.

Gotta Run,
