Been using up odds and ends of leftovers. Pulled a container of chili from the freezer for one meal -- ate the last of that yesterday. Took bratwurst and leftover pulled pork from the freezer (along with hot dog buns) for meals over the weekend.

Also used up another sample-size container of conditioner.

Got DH to disassemble the dead steam cleaner. We're keeping the screws and electrical cord. The metal pieces and motor went into the scrap metal pile (for eventual recycling). Some of the plastic pieces can go into the city recycling bin. So just a few plastic pieces will have to be thrown out.

Hubby used up the last of the wall paint doing the staircase to the basement.

Hubby used up the last of the pine boards doing the steps.

I used up another ball of yarn on the prayer shawl.

Used up a spool of thread winding the bobbin for my sewing project.

Recycled four more cardboard tubes from toilet paper this time. These are to use up some of my odds and ends of yarn making decorations for the second Christmas tree.

Used up the leftover pork casserole.

Used up the leftover spaghetti and meat sauce.

Used up all the sliced raw veggies and so I must do some more cutting up. It is much handier if I spend some time cutting veggies, storing them in containers and pulling them out for our meals.

I am sure I have forgotten some recycling that I did, but that is okay.
