Another Saturday, so it must be a garage sale day again!!!

We are going to do another yard sale again today to try and get rid of the rest of the things. Dd came up last night with a bunch of stuff to add to our pile, so fingers crossed we will be able to get rid of all our things!!! The forecast is good for today, so that is a blessing.

I have to say I am getting excited now, as this time next week, we'll have spent our first night in our new home!! So the final countdown begins. I have got most things packed, but a lot of it is last minute stuff, plus we are still using a lot of things.

One thing I am finding hard though is not gardening. I would normally be tackling the garden now, and I was looking at the back garden bed, and with all the rain we have had it is full of weeds. However, I can't do any gardening as we have packed all the gardening tools, and dh would not be impressed if I unpacked everything!!!

I was given some Canna Lilly bulbs this week, so am looking forward to planting those. Here is some information on them, though not sure what variety they are or what colour.

Otherwise nothing too exciting is happening around here, oh and I got the mortgage sorted out so that was good!!!!

I must say our meal's are getting pretty different, as I clean out the pantry, fridge and freezer. I had a red pepper, half a red onion, and half a packet of frozen small potatoes, which I fried in a pan. We had that with a turkey breast that I had in freezer as well, for Friday nights supper. Everyday it's a case of looking in the fridge, freezer or pantry to what we can use up next.

I have some chicken pies in the freezer, a couple of casseroles, some bacon, and I bought a cooked ham today. We have plenty of eggs, along with pasta and soup, so I should be able to make some quick meals over the next few days, while we are busy with other things.
