I haven't been posting much lately. There has been nothing exciting going on in my little corner of the world. Just catching up on odds and ends of household stuff that needs doing before winter. Scrubbing the outside of the fridge. Vacuuming accumulated cat hair from the backs of appliances. Washing windows. You know. All that fun stuff.
I'm working on building up my food pantry. Luckily, I still have a good amount of home canned food left from last year, so there are only a few things there to replenish. I transferred all of my dehydrated food to canning jars and got them arranged on shelves. The only thing I am low on is dried onions, so I will work on that until I have enough. I'm surprised that none of my neighbors have complained about onion smell. I set both dehydrators in front of open windows in my bedroom and shut the door, and I guess that helps. So it's just the odds and ends of store bought foods to stock up on, and I should be able to finish before winter sets in.
I also spent an afternoon going through my scrapbooking supplies to see what I have on hand and what I need to buy. I enjoy making the mini albums and winter is a good time to work on that, although it isn't work for me. It is more like fun playing!
I'm sort of taking it easy today so I can go tomorrow to a family get-together. My oldest son is moving to Phoenix at the end of this month. His sister is hosting family so they all can see him before he leaves. I understand completely why he doesn't want to spend another winter here in the frozen north. He lived in Phoenix many years ago and loved it. And even though he hasn't lived with me for many years and even though I understand why he is moving, I will still miss him.
