Marinated tofu in veg broth and soy sauce. Browned the tofu, set aside. Browned onion, garlic, potatoes, carrots and peas. Added mushroom soup, turkey seasoning, fresh thyme and rosemary, the tofu marinade and a little corn starch. Threw on a crust, baked for about 20 minutes.
We have yet to hear from a couple of asphalt companies. We did get one estimate of $500, which might as well be $5 million.
As far as I’m concerned, our street can stay unplowed this winter.
Yesterday, I mowed the back yard lawn at Edgewater. The back yard has a few bumps and low spots. Spring fix.
Nice email from Carolee and by strange synchronicity, I got an email from the Onset neighborhood association about a party being hosted by “Carolee and Rebecca”!
I went to the dentist for teeth cleaning this morning and to the senior center for wreath-making this afternoon. Dropped in briefly to Ron’s class.
The shop vac was making strange noises, the kind that happens when the bearings need to be cleaned and oiled.
We took it apart and like idiots turned on the motor after removing it from its housing.
It skidded, gouged the table, sparked, and fell, catching itself in my slacks and one of my socks. Fortunately, it tripped a fuse before it could damage my leg.
Groupon had a nice deal for holiday cards from Staples, so we picked out a design we liked and ordered 50. I bought stamps for cards that are going to Canada and a gift certificate for Peter’s birthday.
Ron cleaned out the dryer today and is planning to reassemble the vent tomorrow.
I mowed the lawn, front and back. We should be just about done with leaves.
I made a revved up mac and cheese for the MRTC meeting. Only three of us, which was nice. Tom shared info on road repair. Phyllis mentioned some history lectures coming up that sound pretty interesting.
We spoke briefly at the Selectmen’s meeting last night about our frustration with the DPW’s putting our street on the “no plow” list.
This morning, the Assistant Town Manager called, as he’d promised.
We did learn one helpful fact, that the street will be plowed in the event of a major storm, over 6 inches of snow.
Also, County Road isn’t on the list, so it will be plowed.
He did mention something I’ve been curious about, that the homeowners on Winslow Drive had petitioned for their street to be made public, but they dropped the idea when they found out how much it would cost.
We also got some information on recycling and trash disposal. It sounded like he shares our concerns for the environment.
