Yesterday I stayed off the internet to avoid hearing about the game, today I must to the sale to avoid it hearing all of the boasting from UGA fans. Forty-one years ago doesn’t seem long enough in my world, back then I didn’t give a shit about college football at all. Braves won the World Series, UGA the National Football Championship. It doesn’t get much worse for a Mets fan and UF alumnus. Thanks, Life. It’s a good thing that I don’t value my happiness based on sports any longer. ðŸ™„ðŸ˜‚
Whoops, stepped away from the blog and forgot to return. Where was I…
Yesterday was all right. Apparently this country has entered another toilet paper shortage, at least that’s what I gathered from the emptiness of the shelves at Kroger and Publix yesterday. While I didn’t do the greatest job of constraining my purchasing, I did manage to buy products for which I had coupons and/or rebates or were BOGOs/clearance, so I was able to recoup some of the costs.
I mentioned going on an impromptu walk with Betsy yesterday and picking up a Christmas tree, well, this was to be repeated later in the afternoon, only this time with Bonnie. And the Christmas tree I picked up yesterday afternoon came with a free ornament! Woot! My two walks accomplished my exercise goals for the day, so I was clear to skip hashing last night.
With the purchases I made at grocery stores I knuckled down at home and did an inventory and reorganization of my cupboards. In the process I pulled out five items that went into last night’s dinner. I essentially made a fake baked ziti, using pasta, pasta sauce, mushrooms, fake ground beef, and some cheese. The dish could have benefited by having a bolder flavor, but it was quite edible and the 13″x”9″ casserole dish’s worth will feed me for days.
The cupboard organizing also inspired me to reorganize my seeds as well. Next step in that process is to make a 2022 WLF plan and ensure that I have everything at hand (dollars to donuts says I do).
Today? It’s cold again! I was planning to go into WLF with Wee Little Chainsaw to cut up tree trunks and larger branches, but I might want to stay in for awhile. There is discussion of trail reccying today, so I should bundle up and do that with Bonnie. And tonight I’ll be bunkering down at home, eating leftovers, staying warm, and trying to convince myself to do something more productive than watching videos.
Hope that you are warm, healthy, and happy.
