    More work on the floor was done, but it is still not finished. Once I am interrupted by family duties, I lose my zeal for the day. But what is done is looking good.

    • I have to start things like that first thing in the morning and usually work through lunch, once I stop and the aches from what I have done start to settle in I don't usually go back to it!

      Can you use broth or bouillon for your veggie soup? One thing I use to help flavor soups is a seasoning mix that is made using 4C of Nutritional (NOT Brewers) Yeast, 4T of Spike, and 4 tsp garlic powder, then you sprinkle a tablespoon or two onto the soup. It is very yummy. When the kids used to do popcorn, we would drizzle honey on top of the popped popcorn and sprinkle this mix on top of that. Nutritional yeast is what vegetarians or vegan often use to get a cheesy flavor and color to foods.

      • Hmm, I have some nutritional yeast in the pantry. I'll give that a try. Thanks, Demuralist. No garlic, since it is on the list of things I am avoiding for a while.

        The floor is kicking my butt. I am at a tricky part, and do not want to proceed. Took an internet break, but now it is time to go back.

        So, I'm going.

        Sort of.

        • getting to tricky parts in a project has derailed many a past project. Actually it is what usually keeps me from starting things!

          • The floor is laid!

            The soup tastes better! (Thanks, Demuralist!)

            The library is about to close, so that's all I have time for. But I knew you'd be waiting with bated breath to hear about the floor. Putting the molding back up tomorrow.

                Up at 6:45

                2:00 1/2C vegetable slurry with nutritional yeast and salt

                6:45 double portion of yogurt

                Water: 9 glasses
                Walking: nope- more floor stuff
                Pains: slight

                Bed at 9:30

                The double yogurt was because I was relaxing on the sofa with Honey and too lazy to get up, so I asked Middlest to bring it to me, and just ate the whole container instead of stopping half way. No regrets at all, it was delicious. Although my stomach started gurgling in a funny(not painful) way half an hour later. FODMAP action? Or just my stomach happy to be working?

                Woke up hungry this morning and am looking forward to a nice breakfast. Even thinking about the possibility of a sashimi lunch. But first, my chores, errands, and walk. I've been plenty active laying this floor, but I want a REAL walk today. (Please, let it be a little warmer. I broke down yesterday, and turned the heat back on. Those of you with snow and ice, feel free to laugh, but for us, 45 is COLD!)

                • y'all have some crazy weather! I thought it was bad here. But it was high then low then high again with a thunderstorm that was quite a show and oh so windy while we were there.

                  • We haven't shut our heat off yet... Luckily, our gas bill is relatively cheap each month ($47), so using a bit of extra gas isn't harmful to us. The furnace is the only appliance we have that runs on gas - thankfully. Gas is expensive! But... our electric bill isn't getting the break we're used to this time of year - usually we get a nice break before we start using the A/C, which again brings our electric bill back up.

                    Personally, I'm itching to start my garden so I want this snow gone!!

                    • At least I don't have to deal with snow! I should quit my yappin'.

                      • we were supposed to get snow last night and all day today, so far...nuthin. Actually I am glad for the weather, I don't really have time to get out into the garden until the beginning of April, so I lucked out.

                        • We've been using the heat, still. I run very cold. Luckily, gas is somewhat inexpensive (I also have a gas stove, which I LOVE). Our electric on the other hand....

                          I want to start planting but know it is WAY too early, even for here.

                          • Our last freeze date is considered March 15. We are having a very late winter here because in my limited experience it is usually done by the end of February.

                            I have tons of pruning and weeding to do, I try to do most of my planting in fall, but it looks like the neighbor is going to put a privacy fence up next to my perennial garden, which will turn that from a "full day sun" spot to a "full day shade" spot. So most of what I have in there will have to be moved and new stuff planted.

                            • It's so great to not have neighbors... I mean, I do, but there's either a street or an alley dividing us, so no property lines to fight over or to screw up where I plant things.

                              Sabine, complain all you want. Your weather is your weather and I'm sure it is cold to you. We'd be THRILLED with 45 up here. Winter came late and it's staying late for us. But, it's supposed to be 50's this weekend, so we'll probably throw the windows up and blow the stink out of the house and enjoy it while we can! I might even kick on the self-cleaner on the oven if I can open windows. Oven is in need of some work. lol

                              • I love living in the city, but we do always seem to end up with one neighbor that impinges on our life. This is the same neighbor with 2 dogs that bark incessantly, I mean for hours, as soon as they both leave the house.
