I don’t know why I can’t remember when it’s Monday.  Maybe I should start making these posts on Sunday and scheduling them?  Oh well, here’s what’s for supper this week.  Colin’s still combining so, lunches are hit and miss.  Uncle Dennis continues deer-less, so that means Grandma’s still in Bowmanville.

Monday:

crock pot tenderloin and potatoes

Tuesday:

Danish goulash

Wednesday:

baked chimichangas -from freezer

Thursday:

leftover goulash

Friday:

baked sweet & sour chicken

Saturday:

breakfast for dinner -Ella home so egg/dairy free

Sunday:

dairy free meatloaf

I’m not really doing much new knitting.  But I’ve picked up Grandma’s sweater again.  I had to do some negative knitting because I couldn’t figure out where I was 😦  So I started the body over again with a better lace pattern.

OK, I’m not sure what’s up with this week.  Somehow I managed to forget about Monday and Tuesday.  So I guess it’s a catch up day today.

Monday:

Crockpot Thanksgiving dinner -using a turkey quarter.  Colin said it was the best turkey ever, but doesn’t know if that’s because of the recipe or the turkey -it’s ours

Tuesday:

New England corn chowder

leftover turkey

Wednesday:

perogie in my Actifry 

vegetarian pot pie -I’ll use chicken broth and Ella milk of course

Thursday:

sandwiches

shipwreck casserole -looks interesting, I’ll do it in the oven.  I don’t really like CP potatoes

Friday:

leftover casserole

leftover pot pie

Saturday:

breakfast for dinner -not eggs because Ella’s home this weekend since Grandma is in Bowmanville babysitting Great-Grandma so Uncle Dennis can go hunting  🙂

Sunday:

honey garlic chicken wings

I do have some projects to share for Yarn Along.  I got some purse knitting work done.  My sock is almost to my calf.  I also did a bit of work on my pillowcase lace.  Of course, I’m working on a few things for my swap partner too.

 

I’m even behind with the Halloween pictures.  This is the very first year that Ella has done all the pumpkin gut work.  She figured out that my wooden spatula can do most of the work for her.  She then used the ladle to scoop out the guts.

Ella drew the face of Innuyasha, her new favourite manga show.  Luckily the pumpkin wasn’t too thick this year, so I let Ella do the carving.

Daisy’s not so sure…

Pathfinder enrollment last week too.

Ella’s a school girl vampire.

I guess that’s about it.  Of course, the menu is just ‘ideas’ since it’s combine season and we never know when Daddy will need lunch in the field or come home for supper.  How’s your week going?

 

 

We had a nice trip down to Pickering to visit with Auntie Belinda and Uncle Stefan.  We didn’t really ‘do’ much of anything, but that can be fun sometimes.  Ella, Stefan, and I did Laser Quest on Saturday.  That’s always so much fun.  I got 6th out of 23 on the first game.  Ella did a second game (with a big group of 14-year-old boys).  We were watching the scoreboard and at first she was getting slaughtered.  Then something happened and she started kicking butt and taking names!  She ended up 3rd out of a group of 33!!  She’s so happy when she can beat the boys  🙂

Pumpkin carving today.  Ella would like to go into Pembroke this year for her trick or treating.  It’s supposed to be miserable so that’s likely what we will do.  We can hit more houses quicker.  Not sure what she’s wearing because a coat isn’t fitting over her Erza costume

She’s been invited to join her HS friends and is so excited.

So here’s what’s on the menu this week.  I’m just giving you suppers because it’s ‘corn season’ so who knows where I’ll be for lunches.

Tuesday:

roasted chicken quarters and probably roasted potatoes too (since the oven is already on)

Wednesday:

spaghetti -fast and quick

Thursday:

steak souvlaki

Friday:

beef chow mein -new recipe

Saturday:

sesame chicken and fried rice

Sunday:

panzerotti

My Crafting On and Yarn Along posts might be a little sparse for the next few weeks.  I’m participating in a Christmas swap on Ravelry again, so sssssshhhhhh!!!

I do have some purse knitting progress to share.  I used a filter to try to get the colour right.  The yarn is blue and burgundy.

Combine Season

It’s that time of year again…

Rats, I don’t know why I can’t embed a non-youTube video here.  Oh well, just follow the link for the song please.

I was going to tell you we were well under way with our soybean harvest:

But he actually finished up the last of the beans before lunch AND even came in the house and sat down to eat his lunch!!  Yesterday went better than planned and it didn’t rain enough last night to stop him. Finally a time where things not going to planned turned out to be a good thing.

Look what I did yesterday:

I went up to our furthest farm and towed the flex head home for Colin.  It wasn’t too bad.  Just one spot on the back side road where I met oncoming traffic right where a bunch of mail boxes crowd the road.  Even though I’m wider than the lane, no cars or mail boxes were hurt!

At lunch I found out that he wanted the wagons moved further down the field closer to where he’s working.  He actually thought to himself “can I teach Paula to drive the tractor over the phone?”.  I may have started something!

Wednesday we had our homeschool trip to Hugli’s and as per tradition it was cold, and windy, and snowy!  It really came down a couple of times.  But I didn’t mind, snow is much drier than rain.  Ella had a good time.  Her buddies Keifer and Ephraim and Landon were there, they make her less serious.

Speaking of home school friends, tonight is ladies’ night for the home school moms.  We’re going to get wild and crazy without the kids.  I made pie  🙂

I had a bit of startitis this weekend, so I’ve got a few things to share for Yarn Along/Crafting On this week.

Started another pair of socks for Grandma for Christmas.  She’s getting to that age where it’s hard to find her presents.  She really doesn’t need things.  But she loves my knitting socks, so socks it is.  I really like this yarn, not a surprise since it’s Berroco and the same brand I use for Colin and Ella’s thick socks.  I’m thinking of ripping these out and just making a plain sock.  The pattern is getting lost in the colourway.

I started a pair of black socks for me.  I’m definitely going to rip these ones out.  For some reason the math has failed me and they are too loose.  That’s half the point of making my own socks -to have them fit properly.  I might actually use this yarn to make me knee socks with the Ceilidh pattern.

Then I decided I needed to knit a project bag for my knitting projects.  It fits nicely in my purse.  I used some of the leftovers from Ella’s afghan.

And of course, a new project bag requires a new project.  So I started a new pair of knee socks.  These are just plain knitting because it’s a funky stripey yarn that sort of looks like snowflakes.

I think that’s it for the new projects this week.  Oh yeah, I didn’t show you Grandma’s last pair of finished socks.  I took the picture without the flash and the colour is better.

A dim start to the day.  It’s supposed to rain off and on all day.  Good thing Colin got a good start to the soybean harvest.  I’m having a hard time getting my day started.  Just want to go back to bed.

Some fun stuff planned this week.  Homeschool trip and homeschool ‘Mom’s Only’ night too.
