Not much interesting stuff to report today as I was rather preoccupied part of the day. Since it was raining cats and dogs today my husband and I went to town to try to apply for Seniors Income Supplement Allowance. We usually use rainy days for things like this since we can't work outdoors. My husband gets his Senior's Pension  and Canada Pension Plan benefits and I'm on a rather conservative salary and will be receiving my Senior 's pension next year. There  were forms that we were supposed to fill out and as soon as he received his Senior's pension but we've been both busy and put it off all summer. We don't know if we qualify yet but it can't hurt to apply.

I came back home to eat lunch, wrote a check and paid some bills on line. I brought a milk sample to  to the Agriculture Lab for analysis and back down town to pick up calf feed, then up town to buy a couple of plastic floor scrapers for the barn at Canadian Tire, some cat food at the Co-op. When I got home I put some pork ribs to simmer and prepared every thing I needed for a stir-fry and  after work I came home, cleaned up and put the ribs in the oven in a 5 Asian Spice Sauce because I had forgotten to buy the regular sweet and sour Garlic rib sauce. By this time the meat was falling off the rib bones. I cooked some instant noodles and added sesame oil and soya sauce. Since I had no beer, we settle for some red wine and later some tea and carrot cake. Sorry the cook was too busy to take pictures. Now it's time to relax as this rainy weather gets me to feel very tired.

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for putting up with me every night.  JB
