  1. Both our Class B motor home and our travel trailer have refrigerators that run on propane, LED lights that require very little power, two generators to put power into the house battery of the trailer (the house battery on the motor home is charged while the engine is running and we have "a bit" of gasoline put back for just that) and we might have to quickly rig up our two solar panels to re-charge batteries.
  2. I usually just delete them from my device, and let them stay in the "cloud" just in case I want to re-read them later. We have five devices set up. One each for our kindle readers. One each for both big laptops, and one for our Acer notebook. He has his, I have mine and then we have the Acer notebook. We purposely download them separately because of space.
  3. Absolutely beautiful day...a bit windy but was mostly sunny and 60.
  4. Went to Dad and Stepmum's for the "yard party" (raking and burning leaves) with rakes and lawn chairs in hand. She cooked hot dogs with chips and brownies. Hubby also measured her deck for new screening around the outside and under ... she hates spiders and snakes (don't we all!) ... and living around a lake they're plentiful. Then figured out where the noxious smell in her laundry room was...it was sewer gas! Hubby went under house and sure enough, when the plumbers ran new plumbing (after a freeze) they failed to put a trap in the line that runs from her washer to the sewer. So, he'll get that taken care of also. Probably going to do some bartering. They have a nice sized air compressor that hubby would put to good use (it's older but works great) and a nice sized generator that we can surely put to use. She says she can't pull it to get it started and is wanting to sell it ... or barter it. Sounds good to us! Then stopped by vet to pick up our girl's monthly meds for flea, tick and heartworm (wish we could find an alternative to the costly heart worm) and then to the doggie park for our girl to run, play and do some ramps. Then home for pizza.

  6. Rain again this morning so no walking...but it will clear up. Nice afternoon though. Tomorrow we'll head out to see my Dad and Stepmum...she's having a "yard party" for friends and kin to bring a lawn chair and rake and get her yard cleaned up. She'll furnish hot dogs and chips. Should be fun, and she wants hubby to measure her screened in deck to put on new screening for her...and she's got an odor coming from somewhere in her laundry room that he needs to check out.
  7. Time for us doesn't matter...when our power goes out the very first thing I do is look outside to see if there's any stranded cars and people around them. Then I punch a button on my battery powered NOAA radio. There's no fire hazards around the homestead, and that's where we'd head asap...regardless of what they say we'd go! Got everything there we'd need...for quite some time.
  8. Didn't post for a few days but we've still been eating! Fixed some Lemmon Pepper Smoked Paprika chicken with pasta and beans, also fixed some catfish, tater tots, hushpuppies and pork and beans, and used my electric pressure cooker to make some of our "Lasagna" using regular egg noodles etc. Tonight I used it to make a Chili Rellano Casserole...our style! I use the little cans of green chili's instead of messing with Pablano peppers. Could have drained more of the juice off the tomatoes as well as more off the chilis. They both contain lots of juice...but oh my was it good!
  9. Not much. Did make a run to Aldis for a bag of potatoes. They have the smaller bags. Sav-A-Lot is cheaper per pound, but it's a big bag and they often start sprouting before we get them all cooked up. Besides, I like the big baking potato size...in the whole bag. One of those works fine for our breakfast potatoes. Aldis also has sweet potatoes...when I need them and SAL only carry's the normal white and yellow onions. I don't like the purple. To hot for either of our liking. Went by library and checked out a couple of books for me and several for him. Also downloaded some free kindle books onto my reader. I delete the ones I've already read so I have plenty of room. I do save the "how to" books etc. Might need them in a pinch.
  10. Prayers for safe passage to your destination and back home.
  11. Buy the generic Ranitidine (sp?) ... I get a nice sized bottle and it's tons cheaper than Prolec etc. It's an acid reducer. I have several bottles put back just in case... The ones I buy are OTC so I don't need a prescription. https://www.goodrx.com/ranitidine?kw=price&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=ranitidine|e&utm_campaign=ranitidine&utm_content=Ad-Group_General&msclkid=96e2579bd7601fa92dfb0b0932160636
  12. Rain most of this morning so no walk Perhaps in the morning...but...I get a lot of walking when doing laundry back and forth from laundry room to bedroom etc. Temp was nice though.
  13. I buy the Equate brand at WM...but I think they all work. Some are even chewable.
  14. Hubby finished up the work on his clients house that he wants to put on the market. I went cob web hunting! Where do those stupid things come from! Finished personal laundry...now need to take care of the bathroom linens. Watched a couple of games of women's softball while doing my stuff. Just finished (with help) changing our bed linens. He does his side and I do mine...just quicker than me having to walk around the bed 6 or 8 times to get things on and the mattress straps attached. Love that fella!
  15. A friend of mine who was a nurse, told me to take "anti-gas" tabs for it...even for indigestion. They work wonderfully!
  16. Hubby started working on a client's project...repairing some drywall that previous workers slobbered around. I watched Women's College Softball (I love this sport!) and got some laundry done. Also unzipped Abby-girls softy bed, removed the liner, and washed the outside and tumbled the liner with some fabric softener sheets to "freshen" things up. She only uses it in the winter time or when we're traveling we put it on the floor for her to sleep on. Changed the sheet on her "youth mattress"...what a hoot! Jeepers...you should have seen her. The minute I put the mattress back down on the floor she flopped down on it before I could even put her snuggy pillow on it! Should have had a video of that escapade!
  17. We won't be planting any garden this year. Our plans are to transplant our blackberry and raspberry bushes, take down both of the mulberry trees and probably take out the raised beds. We're planning to go pretty much only container gardening when we resume. The only beds we'll plant will be Okra and pole beans...when we re-build raised beds. We're stocked up on several of the large "mineral-type" containers that farmers use for livestock. We have a friend who runs cattle so we'll see if they've got a few more for us to add to our stock. We'll buy Mennonite/Amish this year and I'll put those foods back for the pantry. We have two produce auctions in our state and after the "big buyers" are though, they have another sale for people who want the smaller quantities. Sometimes you can even buy just a few from one of the big buyers. We've got "a lot" of seeds set back, so it just makes sense to us to buy fresh grown produce and then plant at a later date. We want to do some travelling this year.
  18. Started our morning walk in the chill but end of day was very pretty...plenty of sunshine.
  19. Took our newly scheduled morning walk...even though it was only 35 outside ... Abby-girl didn't seem to mind the chill at all We've made a commitment to walk three mornings a week...weather permitting. Won't be able to do it during rain though. Then hubby and I took my van over to the garage and got it lined up under the ceiling pulley so he can lift the overhead a/c up...so he can install the new gasket.
  20. Beautiful day today. Took a day trip in our Miss B and just enjoyed the sunshine and 60 degree weather. The robins are out making their presence known, and the sparrows are singing and flirting with each other like crazy!
  21. Loaded up in Miss B and took a day trip... What a beautiful day to enjoy the outside. Ate lunch in one of our "homes on wheels" and thoroughly enjoyed it. Stopped at a rest area that has a "doggie comfort" field so hubby took our girl for a nice walk...and the other stuff... Stopped at PetCo to see if we could find a spill-proof water bowl for her but no. Ended up finding one at Camping World though. We had one we got for her when she was a puppy and she chewed holes in it. She should be fine with this one now. When we're in the travel trailer it's not an issue because she has a "rack" with her food pan and her water pan and we set them outside once we're camped. Got a call from a friend and she's having a welcome home party for our lady friend that will be returning home from Spain next month...with lots of stories! Tomorrow hubby will put Miss B in the garage and lift the overhead a/c to install a new gasket. Hopefully that will stop the leak there. He'll also put on the flex tape while it's in there.
  22. We love the stuff! I have learned how to can them up using a "sterilization/pasturization" process with my roaster. I rinse them off, roll them in corn meal mix and into the fry pan they go! Or...I jar them up with tomatoes and corn...which is wonderful poured over pasta. Freezing them is okay too!
