I've used enzymes on the rugs before, and I could have this time, but since it seemed to be a never-ending supply of dirt, I decided to get rid of this and I'll start over. That's a good idea, having a roll of carpet and using some at a time.

Potato salad will be finished this morning (the potatoes were boiled and cubed and the vinegar and sugar sprinkled yesterday). We all agree that potato salad that was made ahead a day or two is the best. This is for tomorrow's family picnic, and while we all like it, oldest child adores this, so it's an extra mom-pheromone sent out to lure a child home for a visit.

The rice cooker - I hadn't thought of that. When it finishes it stays on a warm setting so if the oats aren't completely done I could let them sit for a while. Steel-cut oats are a lot more solid than the rolled oats that cook anywhere anyhow.

Cleaning the kitchen and doing dishes to prepare for tomorrow. The list is growing - not just mop floor and mow lawns but clear out fridge and dig up the garlic so I can mow that part of the garden. And making it a fasting day (the exercise today will pay off on a fasting day).
