I totally forgot about a Teams meeting I had to do online later yesterday morning (like Zoom) with my boss and 2 others. Yikes, good thing I had gotten presentable beforehand, haha. I had just been downstairs in my bathroom. Saw my hair was a wild mess (I hadn't remembered about the meeting yet) so put it back in a pony tail and used the curling iron on my bangs. Then got up to my desk and saw the reminder that the meeting just started. Oops! So, at least I wasn't too late (usually my boss is the one late to these things). One of the other guys got there just as I was too. Except they all use company laptops with cameras and mics and my home computer for work doesn't have that. So then I logged in with my phone and was able to be seen and heard. Plus, I hadn't shut my office door in my hurry, so I'm thinking oh great dh is going to get home, be all noisy, dogs will start barking....so I texted him quick (from my ipad) and told him I'm in a meeting and to be quiet if he's home soon and/or let him know I was busy if he's trying to get a hold of me. He was still in town, so that was good.
I texted my young neighbor (well, seems young to me, she's like mid 30's) down at the end of our street to ask if they eat eggs, as my chickens are laying, and she can have some of my extra if she'd like. She texted back Oh my gosh! I eat a zillion eggs! haha. She wanted to buy them from me and I said no buying! she can just have some when I have extras. She's bringing me some of her garden zucchini for trade ;) I was just the other day telling dd I wish I had my grandmas old recipe for chocolate zucchini bread. It was so good. I'll have to google and try to find a recipe and try it. I did look through all my old recipe cards and did find her recipe for regular zucchini bread (which was very good too!) so I think I'll make that. She gave me one green and 2 yellow. I've never seen yellow zucchini before.
I had to open up a new can of coffee this morning. I had bought a Walmart brand to try. Even cheaper than Folgers and tastes perfectly fine to me (not a coffee snob).
The mornings are getting a fall feeling, being in the 40's. But daytime highs will be back up in the 90's again starting tomorrow.
I guess I'm going to have to break down and buy a new egg cooker. I just cannot find the one I've had for years. I still had 3 bins of "hutch" stuff that I never unpacked (and stuff inside still all wrapped in paper) so I had dh get them accessible for me and looked through them. I cannot imagine where it ended up! I even looked through all my kitchen cupboards again. At least though, I was able to combine 2 bins into one, so one less bin still in storage, taking up room in dh's den closet. I have tried several times to hard boil eggs either in a pan or even in the oven and they just do not come out where we can peel them easy. My egg cooker was always good.
Today is payday, so I just paid my bills online that aren't auto pay. I do have some on auto pay, but I like to actually pay them, haha. Makes me feel more in control, I guess. I need to pay my propane bill, too. I put it on my 2% cashback card and then pay it off out of my checking at same time. The propane bill is $417. Not going to turn down $8.34 back for a few extra mouse clicks of my time.
DH's original plan (when budget allows) was to buy metal racking shelving units for the back wall of his shop. Now that he did that loft in wood and it turned out so nice, he's thinking he might just build his own shelving out of wood, so it all matches and looks nicer. It will surely look much nicer but oh! all the staining I'm going to have to do, LOL. But, it's also a project that can keep him busy for awhile, too.
DH saw my paper bag on the counter with the 2 bottles of vodka in it. He's like what the heck is this for?! LOL. I had to explain how vanilla extract is made. Not sure he still believed me. HAHA!
