Finished the turkey stock, need to shred the meat from the drumsticks and wing. Just waiting for it to cool down.

Tomorrow is laundry, trash and may have to go in to finish some more work day. I've been running the office on my own this past week, doing the work of 4 people. Not fun.

Thank you We were actually there for my mum not me, but after a good nights sleep, I'm feeling a little better after a very stressful day. Who knew sitting in a hospital could be so tiring!

Ugh, maintenance. Looking through log files, running sys checks, monitoring backups, running updates. All that stuff is better than doing nothing, but not by much.

It looks like a different room. I still need to get someone in to steam clean my couch and love seat. The floors are either hardwood or ceramic tile, so the rugs I can clean with my little Bissel machine.

Sounds like Uber Spring Cleaning -- what will you do when spring cleaning time comes next March or April?? Of course, with your wonderful weather, it's probably hard to see the season changes , so that now is as good as ever. Perhaps when your house and yard are finished, you'll just put your feet up for a while and sit back with a cold drink in your hand and a smile on your face.
