  1. I'm glad that Thanksgiving was pretty good for you all! Will walk first and then dog chores. Decorate front porch for Christmas.. Wrap the thrift shop gifts. Write those Christmas cards. Call my step mom and my brother.
  2. Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving! Since I did all my cooking yesterday in a frenzy, today we will have all leftovers as there is plaenty of everything. Watched Christmas Vacation yesterday-- a yearly tradition. Went to bed at 6 pm. Sunday night 3 hours sleep and Monday night 2 hours sleep. I was tired! My list for today includes making out Christmas cards, wrapping my thrift shop gifts for DH, fertilizing the garden to keep the greens going and maybe decorating the front porch. Might run out of energy, though! Trying to take it easy! Also! Our Churc
  3. Glad you all are negative @TheCG! Well, I got almost 2 hours sleep last night. And I was doing so well for a couple of weeks! So, up at 5. Made coffee and got turkey in the oven. Made broccoli and rice casserole. Made stuffing and Green bean casserole. Tukey should be done about 8:30. After it rests a bit, will start packaging and putting away. Sides should be done around 9 and then the same will be done with them. For us, today is Thanksgiving and whenever we want to eat. After all is put away, I am taking the rest of the day off!
  4. Drive safely when you do head out @Annarchy! Went to stores looking at smallish chest freezers this morning. Ended up ordering one online with free delivery. Should be here next Tuesday. Yay! Went for my walk late morning. Did pine cone crafts with my neighbors granddaughter. Got things set up to cook tomorrow! We have a houseguest with his dog for a couple of days. My step daughter tested positive up in IL. She doesn't feel good, but not too bad either. Thanksgiving is cancelled for her family as her mom and a few others tested positive also. Praying t
  5. Walked first. Did pet chores. Called about my Tattler lids that were ordered on Oct. 11th. Lady said they would get them shipped today and they did. Makes me wonder when or if I would have gotten them if I had not called. Laundry is done for the week. Ran to store for old bananas. I get them cheap as I take a loaf of banana bread to employees. I will make some banana bread this afternoon for friends.
  6. Glad your roof is done, Annarchy! We need one, but the patch will have to do for now. After morning walk and dog chores, I will be making sweet potato treats for pups and taking eBay photos. Have to make jello and pudding sugar free for desserts. Might put up Christmas tree--no ornaments this year--Oreo is still too young and impulsive!
  7. Went to local grocery stores today for sales Then bread store Thrift stores. Didn't spend too much so good day! Walked myself and dogs. Done!
  8. Today, after walking and pet chores, I am making sweet potato treats for dogs. Will write 3 more eBay drafts. Will pick mustard greens and radish greens (for me this time) and cook. Will make hot water cornbread. Will finish last bag of clothes in closet--switching summer for winter-ish. That is probably it Guess I will get another pressure canner as PCing dog food would take two days with just one. DH will try to hammer it flat again with a towel and a 2 x 4 but the metal has been compromised - is what I have been told. At least I can use it for water bath and stockpot!
  9. Will do a video in a bit and take care of pups. Already have jars heating and PCs on stove. Should get 20 to 24 quarts of dog food. Then need to pick greens And pull out craft totes from closet, maybe more. Just making tuna salad sandwiches for dinner. The kitty is in her new home and out from under the couch where she hid when released. She seems very happy to be indoors which we could not do. Crap! New stove is hotter than old one. Warped one of my Pressure canners!
  10. Good morning! Will walk at some point and walk dogs. Thawing chicken to make roaster of dog food this evening. Will slice sweet potatoes and carrots for dog food sometime today. Going to visit with father-in-law later this morning And take half feral cat--who finally went into the live trap--to it's new owners! So glad this will be done! This evening will make the dog food in roaster and slow cooker to cook overnight. Will PC it tomorrow and that is done for the next couple of months. Never even looked at my closet yesterday--maybe today or tomorrow.
  11. I just don't think I can manage it this year. I'm sorry. I haven't even thought about Christmas cards or anything. Sigh
  12. Yes, I am! I baked the butternuts and the spaghetti squash yesterday. Glad that is done! Sounds like Oreo's visit. He was already slowed down by pills the last vet gave us. No way he was getting muzzled! One of the women came up behind him and threw a big folded up towel over his head and held him. He completely quit struggling--but not growling. Next time--3 years, I hope, we need stronger sedatives (mostly for him). LOL Please call the dentist that pulled your tooth and let him know what is happening with it @Littlesister This morning--- Wa
  13. Wow! That was a rough day Euphrasyne! I hope your today goes much more smoothly!!! Already walked, next feed dogs and walk them. Will wash outside of windows today. Really this time!!!! Write some eBay drafts. Look at closet to clean out and switch summer/ winter clothes--doubt I will get any farther than looking at it. New range is here at the house. Electrician and DH went to Lowes for stuff. Hoping to bake butternut squash this evening. Some of them went bad waiting for new range.
  14. Glad the Southwest is getting a little rain! I know you need it! This morning, I walked first and fed dogs. Take Peanut Butter to beauty parlor at 11:30. Walmart, thrift store Pick up Peanut and go for appointment with health insurance lady at 1 pm. Maybe wash those windows that didn't get done yesterday and water the garden. Cook a bunch of hamburger meat for dog food since I have to make that on Thursday and I don't know what will happen with my stove top and the new range. Want to have dog food prep done ahead.
  15. Have you made black beans with yellow rice? Lots of flavor! I ended up making a big pot of extra spicy jambalaya, yesterday. Will freeze one container as soon as I pull out the dog food meat so there is room in the freezer. So looking forward to getting my chest freezer! Walked first this morning, fed and walked dogs, did 3 loads of laundry, house is clean! I may wash outside windows this afternoon and still need to make s/f jello for me. This is a pattern---I get one good night's sleep then wear myself out the next day. Maybe I don't sleep well sometimes
  16. Good morning! I went to a 15 mile yard sale in Louisiana, yesterday. Best thing I found was a cast iron chicken fryer for $15, nicely seasoned. Got a few other items, but not much. Did lots of walking and had lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Today, I will do my video shortly, then Church. After that, I will try to coax kitty into the borrowed live trap and take her out to our friend's house. Then Lady's group tonight. I may have to cook something, but have no idea what right now.
  17. I have an idea but won't get to the store to see if I can find what I need until tomorrow. I will let you know either way.
  18. So glad your mom is home and recuperating, @Mt_Rider! How is your dad doing with all that is going on? Sleep is NOT overrated! LOL @Littlesister, so happy you got your tooth pulled today! Sad you had to go through so much to get it done. Praying for your hands to have better mobility and less pain @out_of_the_ordinary!
  19. Already voted! Will feed dogs, walk dogs, take my walk, do one load of laundry, hard boil some eggs and write eBay drafts. Probably put away the jars of greens from yesterday. And haircut at 1:00 Electrician coming around 1 (DH will be home) to change breakers...or something.
  20. Fed dogs first this morning, picked all remaining mustard greens and washed in washer. Took my walk while the greens finished draining. Came home and wilted the greens and PC'd them. Got 7 quarts which doesn't seem near enough for all I picked. LOL Washed dog blankets and our towels, made salads. Done for today!
  21. Good morning! Already did video, going to feed dogs, walk dogs and go to Church. Will go to Sunday School if we are having it this afternoon. Otherwise, it is a free day for me. Might pick mustard greens or not. Won't PC until tomorrow. Yesterday I cut all my collard greens--only 6 plants-- cooked them and made Hot Water Cornbread (still no oven). That was dinner and it was great!
  22. Friday I walked and picked up new thyroid meds at drug store. Doc lowered my meds a 7th time in the last 2 and a half years! There is only one dosage lower than what I have now. Sure hope to start sleeping better--last night 3 hours and 7 minutes. Also yesterday, I walked dogs, paid bills, made rice for dogs food and then gave away some greens from the garden. At 2:30 took two small dogs to vet for 3 year rabies shots. That went fast and well--they are much better behaved than Oreo-corgi. One could use a dental visit, otherwise good for 3 years! Today, I woke up at 3:30 am. Will do vi
  23. Welcome Maria! Nice to meet you! Glad you are getting to a dentist soon @Littlesister! This morning, I went to Walmart first. They were well stocked for the most part. A few cases of jars and they had lids (I got some). Only 3 big bags of baking soda (Pool size), I got one. Everything else seemed pretty full. I did notice things fronted up with some bare spots in the back. Went to the bread store, then one thrift store. I found a bunch of Lula Roe tops and leggings. About $2 each. I believe they will sell well. Came home, put away Walmart and went for my wa
  24. Is you tooth taken care of @Littlesister? I was thinking it was Wednesday for pulling. @ WE2, glad your grandson is progressing! I went caffeine free for two days and that's it. Back to half caffeine and half decaf. Trying to sleep better but have to have enough ambition to function! No walk today. First, shot eBay photos, then fed dogs and walked them. In the mail yesterday, I received an envelope marked "voter" with my address. Inside there was a similar ballot, but saying I should vote at a different location. I took it to the courthouse today and
