My last post brought several comments from readers. I have been blessed with a readership who leave kind, encouraging and often funny comments. I suppose that is due to the fact that I tend to shy away from political commentary, although I will confess to going on a bit of a rant now and then when I have read about something that is so incredibly stupid that I just have to write about it to keep my head from exploding.
This time the comments included some suggestions for future posts. The suggestions were very good ones and I will be addressing those in posts just as soon as I deal with the canning and dehydrating coming up this week. If you read my last post, you know that I have about 15 pounds of beef roast ordered. Sometimes the grocery delivery service gets it right and sometimes...not so much. Regardless, I know that Oldest Son is bringing me 25 pounds of beef either this evening or tomorrow. As freezer space is minimal at best just now, I will be canning up the beef right away.
I also ordered 24 pounds of fresh carrots that are on sale at 99 cents per two pound package. I have plenty of carrots canned, but need to add to my dehydrated stash, so that will also keep me busy for a day or so. I thought that canning/dehydrating season was over for the year, but at the rate grocery prices are increasing, it seems foolish not to take advantage of good sales.
When I first started this blog in 2009, I was convinced that my only readers were maybe one or two of my kids. And the grands who liked it when I wrote about them. It still is amazing to me that others find my writings interesting. I have been lucky in that the trolls have been very few. For a time I was flooded with those badly worded comments telling me what a wonderful writer I am, that I have such an impressive blog with important information found nowhere else and always ended with an invitation to visit their website. They didn't know who they were dealing with. This granny didn't fall off the turnip truck just yesterday! My "delete" button took care of the problem.
I appreciate very much all of you who take time to visit here and those who comment. It is fun for me to see what you all have to say. Thank you.
