on my little corner of the world today. I haven't even checked the weather forecast. I just want to enjoy the day without knowing if it will last or if more rain is coming. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.
I'm working really hard to become mobile again. That means that today I am spending less time sitting and more time up walking and getting the day to day household stuff done. This seems to be disconcerting to my Yorkies. It has taken a long time to get back to normal (whatever that is). They must have gotten used to seeing me quiet as opposed to my usual moving about, for today they are tag-teaming me. One of them spends an hour or so following me wherever I go, tags off to her sister, who then spends an hour following me wherever I go. This has been going on all day. I finally had to kennel them both for a while so I could get them out from under foot.
It has been a bit frustrating to be sidelined here at home while grocery prices continue to move skyward at an alarming rate. I was glad that I had so much food canned and dehydrated, for it really helped to have it over the long miserable winter and then for the past few weeks when I couldn't get out. But supplies are starting to run low. I like to have lots of hamburger and turkey canned and I am now down to 8 pints of burger and 6 pints of turkey. Turkey prices haven't gone up too much, but the price of hamburger has doubled in the past year. Those two things are at the top of my grocery list.
For the rest, I will just wait for the sales and stock up then, except for onions. I love onions for cooking and I like to have lots dehydrated for that purpose. A 5 lb. bag of onions, once dried, will easily fit into a quart sized freezer bag, which solves some of my storage problems. I saw that Sam's Club has a 50 lb. bag of onions for about half the price per pound of the grocery's 5 lb. bags. I may have to see if one of my kids is feeling strong enough to haul a bag up here for me!
Time to get back at it. I've sat long enough. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the outside world looks like again. With any kind of luck, that will be sometime this coming week.
Life is good.
