Company Girl Coffee.Come on in and let's chat!
We're planning to hold a yard sale next weekend. As we've been cleaning and decluttering, it's turning into a much bigger yard sale than what we originally thought. I am so glad to be getting rid of things and cleaning closets, drawers, rooms and shed in the process. Whatever doesn't sell will go straight to the thrift store after the sale.
On my to-do list this week was to plant my fall garden. I realize I'm on the late side of fall planting but we'll try it anyways. I got 4 planters full of various lettuce and spinach planted so we'll see how it fares! I want to plant some peas yet, too.
I cleaned off most of the front porch, sweeping cobwebs and washing the siding. It was grimy! I'm itching to get a few fall decorations set out but will wait until after the yard sale when all the boxes are out of the way!
I've been running with a friend a few days a week and this morning when we arrived at the park, it was closed. There was a park employee out front who told us that there was a territorial bird (possibly an owl) that they have been trying to catch since it had attacked 2 people on the walking trail earlier this week. Yikes!
I made homemade dinner rolls this week to use as hamburger buns for sloppy joes. I used my favorite recipe for rolls but decided to add a soaking step to maximize nutrition. This is the first time I've adapted my own recipe to allow for this and apparently I didn't quite get it right. First of all, I don't think they had enough flour in them but then they didn't rise well when baking. Instead, they spread out wide and flat.(Like someone else's buns, but we won't go into that!) Fortunately, they tasted great as I was not about to throw them out! One morning we had them sliced and toasted with our eggs and we both thought they tasted like a whole grain English muffin, complete with nooks and crannies. :-) Yummy! Hmmm...think I need to fiddle with that recipe a little to successfully add the soaking step.
We're heading out early in the morning to set up at a show for my husband's side business. A lunch is packed and ready in the fridge. We're praying for a successful day-selling-wise. I need to get to bed!
Thanks for chatting!
