As much as I dislike shopping, I am thinking that I will wind up a shopping fool this week. My local grocery has sales on beef and pork loin. I bought four packages of each this morning. They are all cubed, jarred up and a pressure canner load is cooking away, with several more waiting. Beef rarely is at an affordable price here, so I will be going back at least once more - maybe twice - to take advantage of the sale. The home canned beef makes the best beef stew as well as lots of other tasty dishes. This winter. When it is cold outside. And the ground is covered with ice and snow. And I won't have to venture out in it.
I just wish I could get all of the shopping done at once, but there is only so much I can haul home on the bus in my handy dandy little old lady shopping cart that I use for groceries. I'm not complaining, though. Every day that I wake up in the morning is a bonus. And every day that I still can get around well enough to do my own shopping is even better. And every day that I still have the strength to haul my cart up the stairs to my apartment is awesome.
Life is still good.
