Making progress

It's going to be another 2 weeks (didn't I say this last week?) before the house is done but progress is being made and hopefully I'll have carpet on the stairs when I get home.

It hasn't been all house-work around here.

I made a neat find at Home Depot. (OK, the trip was for more house stuff) If you don't have a Daiso in your neck of the woods to get my neat blocking squares, this may be a good, if bulkier solution.


I have become the master of quick cooking using pantry staples. If you take Kraft Dinner, add sour cream, parmesan, peas and chicken cooked with leeks and garlic and serve with a side salad, dinner is quick and surprisingly tasty.

I leave you with something I call 'sock, resting on newly painted door'.

Pretty! And I'm very glad to know that HD has those squares. I've been looking all over.

Another good, though good in a different sense from your gourmet Kraft good, is to get the white cheddar M&C and dump salsa on it. Yum! Gauche, even for hot dish.

River Rapids is looking lovely. I have a secret passion for KD any way I can get it. Comfort food.

We make "tuna surprise" from our KD, add a 3oz pack of tuna and a cup of peas - add french bread or rolls and salad, and your all done!

lol! Who would have thought that Home Depot would become a "knitting supply" store! That's where I got my foam mats for blocking as well...and the wires for my blocking wires. :)
