I tend to get sidetracked easily. I start out to do one thing and often find myself off in another direction. Sigh.
Last week my kitchen lights went off and stayed off. The handyman finally fixed them Tuesday. So I have been busy catching up on the kitchen stuff that is difficult when the lights are out.
Then I started out going through my fabric stash looking to see if I had enough of one color for the back of a quilt. I found myself surrounded by fabric scraps and an idea for a nifty scrap quilt. Now that I have light above my kitchen table, I can start cutting the pieces.
My grocery order was delivered today. I postponed ordering vegetables for the soup I plan to can, but will get them in two weeks. I hope to fill in some of the open spaces on the shelves. I did order 4 lbs. of butter and will order 4 more next time to can.
I have been crocheting like a mad woman evenings. I am determined to finish the last two afghans by spring. I am getting tired of yarn and want to move on to playing with fabric. When the afghans are finished, the sewing machine will get a good cleaning and oiling and then off to the races on quilts. In between canning and dehydrating, that is. The way things are going in the Swamp, I have a hunch we all had better be prepared for anything.
Can you believe that 'Green New Deal?' Let's see. They want to eliminate gas, oil, coal - all fossil fuels. We all will need electric cars. Planes will go the way of the dinosaur, which begs the question... How does one get to places across the oceans. Even ships need fuel. And I won't even get into the discussion about farting cows. What is really scary is that most of the Dems who are in the running for President are buying into it.
The lunatics are running the asylum. I'm just too old to go protest anything. Phone calls, emails, letters and petitions are a waste of time. Unless it involves power or more money in their bank accounts, they just don't care. The only thing I can do is try to vote them out of office. And gripe. Here. To you all. Which is 'preaching to the choir!'
And keep prepping.
