Box of Chocolate Week

Friday, March 15, 2013

This was a Box of Chocolate week - never knew what I was going to get. I think I got the vomit or earwax flavored one.

- Planned to work on my backyard garden project, and then got rear ended on Monday. Even though it was a 'fender bender', the total cost to repair was $585. Apparently my car has expensive paint. The other driver's insurance company paid for it in full, though.

- 'Zero Waste' March crashed and burned. I didn't process the leftover veggies from last week fast enough. I pickled some of the leftover snap peas, but the ones that didn't fit in my jar had to be thrown out. A handful of grapes didn't make it. Something went wrong with my batch of homemade yogurt, and I had to throw out the whole quart. No meat was thrown out. The drawer on my new fridge is doing an excellent job of keeping the temperature just above freezing. I have learned that most of my food waste comes from previous weeks, so maybe I'll spend more time on weekends clearing out old food before buying new food.

- Made a mistake attaching the landscape draining fabric to my raised bed garden. I accidentally attached it to the top instead of the bottom. DOH! One minute mistake, then an hour of pulling out staples and redoing it. Now there are holes in the top of the frame, but I'm not going to try to patch them. This is a temporary structure that is just meant to get me started this year, so I'm letting it go.

Today I think I'll stay indoors. emoticon

    Oh boy do I know about those kinds of weeks! I thought of you when sadly I had to throw out some ground meat this week...Patrick and I go so busy and I just could hardly see what I had in there and I lost it. :(

    I hope things improve for you over the weekend and into next week---they gotta right? emoticon
