The first clue was released today with the outline. It has been so long since I have done counted cross stitch it should be an interesting beginning. I went to the store yesterday and picked up all but one of the floss needed and the Aida cloth. They were out of the eggplant color. I'll have to check my other baggie and see if I might have it. I hope I grabbed the right needles. I had the hoop and scissors and printed off the pattern this morning. I plan to give it a start later this evening. Greg is dropping Aidan to the orientation this afternoon and then we will head over for 4 when the parents are asked to go.
After running errands yesterday, Greg, Bear and I headed to Grandma's house mid afternoon. We wanted Bear to meet Scruffy - Grandma's dog.
We had them meet through the fence first as we were not sure how either would react. Both did submissive behavior and did really well! Now we know if we need to babysit Scruffy, the dogs should be fine together!
With school starting soon and me picking the kids up at 3:25 and 3:45... and with the known beginning of school pick up chaos usually taking 30-45 minutes to get them and then 20- 60 minutes to get home with traffic I need to think of meals and prepping ahead again. This is the part I dislike!
I opened the big freezer and pushed and pulled things and tried to figure out meals for the nex
t couple of days. I pulled some ham from Easter and that is tonight's plan with some mashed potato and frozen peas. (We have orientation until 5:30 so won't be home until 6 -6:15? I may be talked into takeout on the way home, but we will see!) Tomorrow, I pulled out some pork chops that will thaw overnight and then we can pound them for snitzel tomorrow night with some roasted cauliflower and a salad. Greg will take Aidan after lunch to check out the computer from school. I also pulled a whole chicken out to thaw (the deep freeze is at zero) and will plan to do that as a dry roast in the crock pot with root veggies on Wednesday. Who know's when we will get home from school! It will be nice to have dinner ready and waiting for us.
