Yep.....that's me. I've been busy and have spent little time at my computer lately. That's my excuse and I'm going with it.
My TV stand got emptied and moved to Son's apartment. He is making good use of it. It took a day to find a home for everything I had stored in it and another day to recover from the lifting and moving and sorting. I don't bounce back as well as I once did. There is still a stack of stuff to go into a closet as soon as I finish cleaning the closet out. A couple of trash bags full went out to the dumpster and that helped. If anyone is old enough to remember "Fibber Mcgee's Closet," they will understand why mine is taking time to sort through. I didn't have anything falling on my head when I opened the door, but it was close.
Son helped me move my desk and I put two of the leaves in to give me a large work area for sewing. I like it. I especially like the part where I can keep my sewing machine set up as opposed to having to move it from my kitchen table so often. This arrangement will work well.
The cleaning of the chest freezer is proceeding at a slow rate. So far I have unearthed a stray pork chop, hidden beneath bags of cranberries, that made a good supper. And a couple bags of frozen vegetables I had forgotten about. Hope springs eternal that there are at least a couple of chickens under there somewhere. Turning cranberries into juice to can is time consuming, so I expect to be at it for a while.
This week onions were on sale, so I ordered 12 lbs. Tomorrow I will peel and chop them and get them to drying in the dehydrators. Drying them seems to be the best way for me to keep onions. I will hold out a couple to use fresh, but I like having the dried onions on hand and I mostly use them in that form.
I have noticed something about the grocery store lately. The sale ads run from Sunday to Saturday. Used to be that whatever the store had on sale, there was plenty to last the length of the sale. More often than not these days I get a phone call from the person who does my shopping, telling me the store is out of at least one sale item from my order. This week they were out of fresh chicken breast. No substitutions or rain checks. And this was only Wednesday. I have to wonder if this is a sign of things to come.
Time to get busy again. Son called earlier wanting to know if I needed anything from the store. I said I didn't, but would he like a BLT and homemade french fries for supper. He allowed as to thinking he probably could choke them down! :)
Sometimes a person just has to go for the taste good thing. I love fries.
