another rainy miserable day. though i am thankful for saving on the AC bills we're all going a little stir-crazy and this late aft/early evening half of Kanata was flooded though our house seems ok thus far, our backyard probably had 2 inches of standing water at one point.
i have never seen so much rain in my life. i would have taken pics but i was too busy running around making sure all the downspouts were as far away from the house as possible and that our sewer drain wasn't backing up.
we pick up the new car (car? truck? its more of a crossover so i guess car) tomorrow so that is a bit exciting i guess...
there is an article in this month's (actually i think the date on the cover is September) Chatelaine about food waste that is pretty eye opening. so, tonight in part because of the article and in part because we're trying to stretch our grocery dollars, i made dinner out of what i could scrounge from the cupboards and freezer.
4 chicken thighs, a can of diced tomatoes, a small onion, 2 cloves of garlic and some jarred stuffed manzilla olives served over basmati rice was one of the easiest to make and best tasting meals i've made in a long time. not too shabby for odds and ends.
good luck with the move Ally - have fun going upstairs to bed in the first time in a long time!
Penster - where are you???
