when little or nothing has been accomplished. I have been a little bit under the weather. Not sick, really. Just kind of tired. I have been napping more than usual but I finally am feeling more awake. I managed to cook and wash dishes and do some laundry, but that has been the extent of my ambition the last few days. On the Up Side, my legs are healing nicely. I didn't have to bandage the right leg this week and the left one is nearly healed as well. I would do a happy dance, but chances are pretty good that I would do myself a mischief if I tried.
It is fun having one of my kids living next door. Oldest Son popped in to see how I was doing. And to plunder my shelves of home canned food. He said he was making beef stew for their supper this evening and wanted to know if I would like some. Answering like a true Minnesotan I said, "Yeah, sure. You betcha!" Said I would trade a bowl of stew for a mess of baking powder biscuits. I think I am getting the better of that deal.
I finally had to turn the heat on here in my little apartment, just to take the chill off. The forecast this week is for temps in the 60's during the days and in the 40's at night. Won't be long before the trees down by the river will be a blaze of color. The Farmer's Almanac is predicting an average fall through October, but after that we can expect a colder than normal winter with lots of snow. I think I will ask Son to get me another 100 lbs. of flour and maybe 50 lbs. of sugar from Sam's. Now that I am back to baking bread, I don't want to be running out of flour. There are only a couple more items I need to stock and I will be ready for winter. When the temps are below zero and the snow is blowing, nobody needs to be going out to the store. That's what deep pantries are for.
So I am off to catch up on everything I let slide this past week. Ah, well. At least I will be too busy to find any mischief. I may be old, but I'm not dead - yet. Mischief is still occasionally a distinct possibility. :)
