No rest for the wicked

Oh, there ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
There ain't nothin' in this world for free
I know I can't slow down, I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could
Oh no, there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good

chorus from Ain’t no rest for the wicked by Cage the Elephant
With that being said I was running around like a chicken with no head yesterday. I don’t know why… It almost seemed like I was nesting. Strange! I cleaned the top of the fridge…. there will be no pictures as the mess could make me look very guilty… LOL! Oh, well! I had intended on cleaning the rest of the kitchen, you know the nasty stuff like the ceiling and the walls but I made dinner instead. Homemade hamburger helper.It couldn’t have been easier. Pasta, hamburger and cheese sauce from Gordon Food Services. If you wondering it is stock rotation time. I never made it back to cleaning. I did however start to do other things. I got all the zucchini, yellow squash and one eggplant out of the fridge and cut up for the dehydrator. The sourdough ended up becoming waffles and blueberry breakfast bread, with enough left over to live another day. I am just happy that I was able to use so much of it up. Even in the fridge and weekly uses it still grows. I got the pickles in the fridge, so we will soon see if they turned out. I have never had pickles turn out so, keeping fingers crossed.
I forgot to tell you we were without sinks for two days. The pipe that runs into the kucky stack, rusted. It had a hole in it before and we patched it will epoxy. Good thing we had some leftover. Grim got it all taken care of. We will be replacing it as soon as payday comes around again. It brought back days of old as I had to use a glass of water to brush my teeth. I know that I really need to get a pitcher and bowl. It would have made getting cleaned up easier then leaning over into the tub. Now that job is all done. We got some tape stuff to fix the whole thing. The guy at the store said that it should last 5 years. I hope to be out of here way before then.
I got the cherries jarred up. They look really good. Once I can clean off the sticky I will take a couple of pictures. Picky monster and I made Grape Soda tonight… We adapted it from here. We didn’t have any basil so I just left it out. In a couple days I will give you all an update. Oh, I also made the monsters jello popsicles. They absolutely love em’.
Real quick does anyone know if my pumpkins will survive or if I should just pull them. Thanks!
