    WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    Mt. Rider and Jeepers! Hope you are both feeling better soon! We went thrift shopping today. Got 24 pint mason jars and a package of wide mouth lids for $6. Also bought another turkey to bake and freeze after, this one 18 pounds. Home now and need to dust house and clean baths as well as make a spoon bread for after Church on Sunday. It's been very cold here! for SW Mississippi anyway. Warming up today, so I put the aloe vera back outside until the next extra cold snap. Harvested the red peppers and left the plants outside as I just don't do well with houseplants.

    I'm not feeling well today. Not ill...I don't think. I didn't take any Nuprin before bed....thot I was past that. Uh...mebbe not. Woke with very sore/spasm in back. Shooot! Also must have laid on my R hand in the night....cuz it's still painful. Just feeling greatly unsettled and on the edge of grumpy. Don't like being laid up entirely and feeling...helpless. Hmph! Think I'll take our preventative immune booster....in case this is the prelude of a Jeepers-type actual illness. MtRider ...blech and no sunshine to cheer this grey day. Ach, this too shall pass.

    WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    Feeling pretty much the same. Just upper respiratory tightness. I've drunk enough hot teas and cold juice to float a battleship. Thanks to the Keurig I've had a good variety of liquid to choose from. Snow plow guy called today. It's a go for another year at the same price. He is a nice guy and does a great job but he just comes too often $$$. Hopefully next winter I will have a new John Deere with a snow blade at a new residence and I can take care of myself. It's going to take some time getting used to a much smaller house but having no stairs inside will be so good on my back and knees. The neighbor issue will be resolved when I get out of here too. I've waited 66 years for a forever home so I'm pretty sure I can make it work. I haven't been truly happy and settled in my mind for decades. I'm thinking I'm finally setting down some roots. It's just been a slow process and "others" don't understand why I'm not moving faster. Oh well, that's their issue to deal with, right? I think I'll go run some errands today and get the stink blowed off. As my granny used to say. I still need a winter coat and some of those little Cutie type oranges sounds good. Maybe some dark chocolate? I also have a big kitchen bag full of fabric to donate to Sal. Army if they want it. And another bag full of shoes. Some of my unworn shoes became gummy and tacky feeling. And some of my purses fell apart inside. Like the glue didn't hold the lining together. I'm pitching all of those too. So with my regular trash and Salvation Army, I should be dumping off about 6 kitchen size bags from the house. It's time to recycle my papers so they can get gone too. Now, if the only thing I bring back into the house is a winter coat I'll consider it a successful day.
  5. Good morning. This thread is for when you send and or receive an ornament. Thank you all for joining again this year.

    What are you canning today? Part 8

    Bought some windfall apples at a local orchard. I canned up several dozen half-pints for my mom and some cooking/baking around our place. The pints disappear too fast around here, or get lost behind the huge cabbages and bags of kale in the refrig. Harvest time is always a stress on the refrig. Tomorrow is more applesauce and canning up the turkey I baked yesterday. Thanksgiving is next week but TWO turkeys wouldn't fit in the freezer. One of them became canned meat for the next year.

    The CAMP Fire

    Oh sheeeeesh, Dogmom. Do be careful of your eyes, lungs, etc. I know that type of sun....have seen that way too many times. Do you have N95 masks? I hate to wear them but if I don't, the results aren't pretty. Any chance of the monsters getting all the way to you? Or.....another one starting? I hate living under wildfire danger. Know where your priority stuff is, dear friend! And the routes outta Dodge! MtRider

    Sheeesh, Jeepers. Besides being ill, you haven't had anyone cooperative today. I'm freeeezing....cuz I fell asleep while on the computer...laying in bed. Brrrr Covered up with more fuzzy blankets. Seem to need a nap before bed. I'm thinking of the ginger, honey, lemon tea....but that would require getting up from my cocoon. MtRider ....unpacked more stuff from being at my folks' and took a walk with dog/DH this evening.

    I buy candied ginger from the Mennonite/Amish stores. They sell them in air tight containers so I just store them in my freezer, and we usually nibble on 2 or 3 pieces each evening before we go to bed. Ginger is SOOOOO good for you not to mention warming you up but also quite soothing for a sore throat.

    The CAMP Fire

    We are getting impacted from all of the smoke from the fire. They are finally closing down the schools in my district for tomorrow because it supposed to be worse. The UC and State colleges have been closed down all week. Our air quality is almost 300 today... that’s considered a hazardous range. I changed the air filter in our house and could not believe how filthy it was....

    Revamping the car kit.

    Church garage sale today so for 5 dollars I got some gloves, boots and a rechargeable lamp. Plus a picnic basket for potluck dinners.

    I still feel about the same. My throat isn't as sore so that is a big plus. I'm still coughing (unproductive) and I still wheeze sometimes. That sort of bothers me. I called the doctor today for an appointment and they said the earliest they can see me is next Monday the 19th. I'll either be better or dead by then. Maybe that's what they are counting on. Keep the sick ones out of their office. Yeah, I'm grumpy. D-ex just called and I told him if I feel the need, I'll just go to one of those Ergent-Care type places. I think my insurance covers it. Even if they don't I'll go if I feel like I need to. Actually, I think I'm just being whiney. Wheezy, Whiney, Woman. I just called my bank in Indy. They forgot to order my checks. Son has been making trips out to the house for over a month looking for them. This is the third time they have messed me up. And Wal-Mart won't let me make an eye appointment online. Disgruntled. Oh, and my snow plow guy hasn't called this year either. I might have to look for another guy. I called him but he hasn't returned my call. I told that to D-ex and he said, "Move." Not a wise choice of words today.

    It's that way here too. I just want to download stuff occasionally to keep my card active after I move.
  18. Twilight

    Is it me or...

    Jeepers I am not sure downloading is permanent from the library. Here depending on checkout..two or three weeks and it will disappear on your kindle or whatever you down loaded on.

    Is it me or...

    That's really sad about your library Annarchy. Our library is rated at the top in the nation and I'm really going to miss it. I need to learn how to download some of the books just to keep my card active. I don't know how good the library system will be where I'm moving to. This reminds me, I still have my grandma's old treadle sewing machine in the basement. It's probably rusted up by now but that would be a good project for son and I to work on next winter. I think I remember the bobbin and shuttle were missing. I have a lot of researching to do on that old machine. It's one of the old Singer machines where the head doesn't move to fit into the cabinet.

    How to Survive Without the Internet Library Set

    Thanks Sarah. Couldn't access it without power but for right now it looks very interesting. There's a lot of old time historical events I know I'd really enjoy reading.

    Good heavens, Jeepers is really struggling with the auto-correct. dog butt? Sometimes the auto correct need not be so pompously thinking IT KNOWS WHAT YOU REALLY WANNA SAY.... Glad to know you're holding on and riding this out. With all the strain we've been under with my folks and all, DH and I are doing some of our preventative things. I finally got reconnected to my daily herbs/vitamins....were left at my folks when I only thot I'd be home a couple days. Then we're also drinking a hot drink with ginger and honey. I cut down on the ginger [whooo..concentrated/hot] and added a bit of fresh lemon juice. Warms you up on a chilly nite. Now I've got all my stuff back home...I gotta put it all away. My back strain is improving a lot each day but still is quite evident. Taking it easy! MtRider

    I can up some half pints too. I like to throw a jar in a tuna noodle casserole.

    another non-electric clothes washer option

    If one lays their wet clothes out on an outside table, cover it with a towel and use a rolling pin to squeeze out the excess water...it works pretty good

    Hee heee. Cap'n Jack is a hooligan! I think I might be getting better. Must be a virus of some sort. Usually with the flu i get intestinal upset but I don't have that. Thankfully. Headache, sore throat, muscle ache, bones ache, low grade fever, chills, runny nose, stuffy nose, sneezing, cough and wheezing. If I was a horse... I never cough so this has me bothered. I also don't wheeze so that's new to me too. I thought I heard the computer making a funny noise and it was me! Dang. I have all I need here at home so I don't have to go out. BTW, Theraflu Sore Throat tastes horrible. Tastes like a shot of dog but whiskey. Oh wow, look what KIndle auto corrected! I wrote 👕o-t g-u-t whiskey. Now it looks like a tee shirt where it's supposed to say "rot" "Rot" "Gut" "Whiskey". Dog butt whiskey probably wouldn't taste too good either though. I give up. I HATE Kindle auto correct. I'm going back to bed.

    poverty cooking

    When the kids were small I used to make "scones" every Christmas eve...and would add shredded cheese and bacon crumbles to the batter. Then I arranged them on a plate with grape jelly in a dish so they could dip them in. Still love them thingies! LOL

    Made up another fresh batch of Elderberry syrup. We've been hitting it pretty regularly and needed some more! Kitchen smelled "not bad" of Elderberry and cinnamon.
