It is a lovely day here in the north country. Temperatures have risen enough so I could shut off the heat in my apartment and crack open a couple of windows. Spent the morning getting caught up on the household stuff that the latest arthritis flare up prevented me from doing. Dishes are washed, laundry is folded and put away and a pan of cornbread muffins are in the oven.
Duane and Lori were here this morning. Duane wanted to borrow my large roaster pan for a beef roast he is cooking for supper. He raided my shelves for a couple pints of baby carrots to go with the beef. I am glad when my kids raid the shelves. That's what all those jars of food are for. And he will bring me a plate of food for my supper. Pretty good trade, I'd say. :)
I was reading the website for one of our local news sources when I saw this headline:
'An Undocumented Future: Fear in The Immigrant Community.'
Basically the article tells of those illegals who are worried about deportation now that we have a president who seems to believe that laws should be enforced. I can't really blame many of these people, especially those who have families here. They were told for eight years that there would be no consequences for breaking our immigration laws. I suspect they counted on the coronation of Hillary to continue that practice. Well, surprise, surprise. Now many are heading for Canada to avoid deportation here. What a mess Obama created by refusing to enforce those laws. And how terribly wrong he was to mess with the lives of those who believed him.
So I have goofed off long enough. I am off to the kitchen to rid the freezer of a few more gallon bags of cranberries that, with any kind of luck, will be cranberry sauce and cranberry juice. I am almost afraid to see what is lurking underneath all those berries. :)
