I'm home alone today. It's hubby's first day back at work so he asked MIL to take SG. I would have rather spent time with her but he wanted me to take it easy.

The only things that he wanted me to do were to declutter a few kitchen drawers which he brought through to the livingroom last night. It was a long task, and I found receipts from 2012. I had a good read through them, and a lot of them were credit card receipts. Thankfully I don't have those anymore. I think we should sort through the mail weekly because a lot of stuff had built up. I also need a shredder to fully complete my job but I can't buy one yet.

Tomorrow we have been together for eleven years. I have decided to make a curry for us then. I checked the cupboards and I have a packet of poppadoms and pilau rice that will take two mins in the microwave. I've found an easy recipe online for curry, and I attempted to make spiced onions to go with the poppadoms today (recipe said they should be chilled for a few hours) so we'll see tomorrow. I didn't have mint sauce or mango chutney which the recipe needed; I'll know for next time.

I've got a batch of vegetable soup cooking right now. I had a lot of vegetables that needed using up. Now I'm happy knowing that they haven't gone to waste.

Have a great Sunday guys. Is it Super Bowl Sunday? I;m sure BIL always used to take the Monday off work to recover from watching it.

    It's wonderful that you have been together for 11 years. Smile ....The grocery store a few days ago looked like everyone was getting ready for Junk Food Sunday. The big store ad featured only 2 produce items: bagged salad mix and avocados. Everything else seemed to be junk food and prepared dishes. I don't know what would be wrong with people making some of your vegetable soup or curry on SB Sunday.

    Happy Anniversary, congratulations...are you surprised at how fast the time has flown?
    In hopes of offering helpful suggestions...

    Mail: I've found it helpful to have a routine for coping with daily mail. It all lands in a shoe box that stays on the left side of my desk, as soon as it comes in the door. It's also the holding spot for every single 'important' paper so there is only one 'go to' place for paperwork. you'll think It's weird but I corral envelopes to re-use for notes, grocery list, spending plan etc as the size is convenient...We've always used an empty tissue box for receipts, all receipts should anything need to be returned, it's receipt can be fished out of the tissue box with a bit of effort!

    Paper shredder: We don't have a paper shredder. They seem to burn out too quickly or be in an awkward spot. I've opted to use a letter opener or small knife to 1st remove account numbers from paid bills to be trashed and rip the address line in half. Gets rid of ant residual anger about bill too. Just so long as the account number and an ID like IN number is removed. The rest doesn't affect identity.

    Mail: we do Desk Day, every Tuesday, I review that box of mail stuff, with the view of pitching out as much as possible, finishing any paperwork shores before I close out the day.
