Cleaning and stuff

Monday, we're having our garage floor epoxied, so we started cleaning the garage this morning. I thought it would take the better part of two days, what with the 4 drawer file and my 11 or 12 drawer tool cabinet, a couple of ladders, the recycleables bin, and some miscellaneous stuff. Plus trying to decide what we needed from the cabinets for the next few days. Anyway, it was all done by 10:00 this morning. So we'll probably go to the mall tomorrow. I have a 10% coupon from JCPenney which I just can't turn down!

Grandma was working on lunch before she even had her breakfast this morning - beef ribs in the slow cooker. The house smells like a ribs joint right now, and it's making me hungry.

We've harvested over 4 dozen lemons from our dwarf tree, and there're still a lot left on the tree. We set up a production line. Grandma washes them and gets the zest; I halve them and squeeze the juice. We have a Braun Juicer, which is simple to use and clean, so it doesn't take too much time to go through a couple of dozen. Grandma puts the juice in containers and freezes it. This week, she made lemon ice cream, which I can't hardly wait to try; but first we have to finish the homemade chocolate macadamia nut ice cream. So far, my favorite homemade ice cream is anything Grandma makes - they're all delicious
