Making progress! I see living room floor, lol. My son has taken over the living room and is making great progress. I've spent most of my time dealing in the kitchen. Boxes and bags of kitchen stuff. Waiting for the first load through the dishwasher to finish. Then,unload and reload with a bunch more that needs to go through. I've also redone a few cabinets. Plus pulled out the toaster and set it up. Found the blender but its in the box still. Donating my blender because my brother's is nicer with a glass container. Put up canned goods too. Still have a big bag of food items to find a place for. My food cabinets are full right now. I have my brother's canister set which I do not need. I need to figure out what I'm doing with it. They're too small for my usage. Fir a fun note, my son and I made up some vanilla honey today. It's a 22 ounce jar of honey. We split 2 Madagascar vanilla beans and scraped out the caviar and put everything in the honey. Stirred it with a chopstick. Boy you could taste the subtle hints of vanilla immediately. We've also been making our vanilla extract. We started that 3 years ago with Madagascar vanilla beans in Buffalo Trace Bourbon. Delicious. So I poured out 10 ounces and that's for baking and flavoring for the next year. Refilled my mother bottle with more Madagascar vanilla beans and Buffalo Trace Bourbon. It sets for another year. I've got other vanilla beans in both rum, Bourbon and now vodka. There's a great Facebook group for making extract and other goodies that I'm in. Well, the dishwasher is done. Now to put that all up and reload and get it going again. My migraine is back with some awful nausea so that will probably end my night of work. Take care of yourselves. New restrictions are going in effect here in Kentucky tomorrow due to our county being a red zone. We lost a 15 year old student yesterday to Covid. Please wear your masks, social distance, wash your hands and take necessary steps to prevent future spread of Covid. Sending you all much love and hugs and prayers ❤

    the two of you have been busy for quite a while between packing up at your brothers home, and now finding places for all the stuff you brought to your place.
    The making of the vanilla extracts sounds interesting. Do you buy the Madagascar beans locally, or do you need to send away for them?. I found them in a place back in Minnesota at a spice store---they were pricey..
    I know you got rid of your migraine, and hope it will stay away.
    Well, best move along as need a few more Spark things to do, and need to get to bed.
