to all of you for your words of encouragement and your prayers. This quitting smoking thing is no fun – no fun at all. I am still somewhat cranky. And I still want a cigarette. But I am smoke free and have every intention of staying that way. Sometimes stubborn can work for us. :)
My groceries were delivered today. There was a sale on turkeys and hams, with a limit of two on each, so that's what I ordered. The hams were about 7.5 lbs. each and they fit nicely into my freezer.
The turkeys, however, topped out at 17 lbs. and 20 lbs. They would not fit in the freezer – no way, no how!
Note to self: Check to see how much freezer space you have before ordering meat for the freezer. Duh!
Guess who will be cooking and canning turkey tomorrow. :)
Not complaining. Not at all. I am just happy to have that much more meat to add to my food storage. And to be able to get it while it is still affordable.
Here in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, we have had a couple of light snowfalls. But by mid afternoon, what fell the night before has melted off. That's fine with me. Although it is not unusual to have a considerable amount of snow on the ground by Thanksgiving, I won't mind if that doesn't happen this year.
That's all I know for now. I suppose I could work up a rant about several things going on just now, but I think I would rather stay relatively happy.
Sometimes, the best revenge on those who would try to make our lives miserable is to be happy anyway. Drives them crazy. :)
