Posting later in the day....
I had a call from my dentists office that they had a 2.5 hour cancellation this morning, so would I like to come in and finish up my work? You betcha. But it about killed me, keeping my jaw open for that long and as my jaw really is frozen and does not open even wide enough to take a bite of a hamburger most days, getting even a child's size rubber damn in my mouth was hell. But the work is done. All the restorative work that needed to be done is done. It has taken almost 18 months. I had a ton of old fillings that were leaking. I really have not had a cavity in years and years.
I also got B's college papers in I think. They might want some documentation but we will see. I was able to get my Aunt's fabric boxed up and labeled just need to get to the post office. I printed out a bunch of medical forms to get reimbursed. I cleaned down the dirty steps to the down stairs. Got enough cat and dog fur to make a pillow. I did all of my ironing last night as I watched a movie. So my list is getting smaller. I will just keep hacking at it.
We are having a bad wind storm right now and that is not good for the local fires. It will have to be really bad before Hub's is called out. They don't like to pay Foresters overtime they are too expensive. Yeah that is why I worked 4-5 jobs most of my life to augment that expensive income:) Okay a little sarcasm.
I have been so appalled at the price of groceries lately especially meat, but with the garden and all the fruit going ripe this last month I have not felt the pinch too badly. Apricots, cherries, plums, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries as much as we can eat and then some. I also found whole chickens on sale for 69 cents a lb. That is almost unheard of anymore, so I bought all they had out. 10 chickens! My freezer is pretty full. Then I found 80/20 ground beef for $1.69 a lb, so I stocked up and I had no room so I made several meat loafs. We will have one for dinner tonight and leftovers tomorrow. I can wedge the others into the freezer as they are smaller. I love having things cooked up and in the freezer to thaw. I just pull out the meat and go out to the garden pick what is ripe and dinner is done.
I think I will start canning tomatoes this weekend. I did not do any last year and I love my big quarts of home canned tomatoes. Now I hear thunder and lightening, crap, I hope we don't have any new fires. It has been really smokey out and it affects my breathing.
Well I need to get my butt in the shop as it is almost 5 p.m. and I have gotten no sewing done today! Shame on me.
Have a great and restful evening.
