Thunder, Really!

Yep, we are in the middle of a thunder storm. It is November 14th and we have low 60’s and rain. Where is the snow? The squirrels are so fat that they can barely walk. The little black caterpillars are everywhere. So I wonder how long we will go without snow!

As with most things I only got a couple things accomplished that I had planned for this weekend. First I was able to make the laundry soap. I have a website, directions and photos to share tomorrow. And we were able to get the Christmas lights up. The soup bones must have been old, because the broth is milky. So that will go into the trash. The reason I didn’t get everything done was because my mom decided it was time to clean out her freezer. Everything that she wanted to replace came here. Some of it was good, some not so good! But I have 3 pork loins in the fridge thawing so that I can pressure can them up tomorrow. She has a couple more waiting for me to have time to cook them up. There was also a turkey found. So that will be used for Thanksgiving.

She was cleaning out her pantry so I got quite a bit of canned stuff as well. I know your wondering why she is giving me the food. She will only keep food on her shelves till they are close to expiring and then replaces it. Same with what is in the freezer. If it is getting close to the time, I get it because I will use canned goods past the use by date and I will can up any meat that is 6 to 12 months old.

With tonight I have 5 more bingos to work. That is all I am signed up for. I am counting them down. I really can’t stand the bs that goes with the program. What happens is that regular workers like me are bumped up to management and then become power hungry. So it is not the best work environment. But like I said 5 more! Then next year I only have to work 3 and that can be at my leisure. I get paid into my monsters student credit account to work bingo. I have been doing this to pay for band camp. I will have 1/3 of it paid for by the end of this year. I just need to decide if I want to continue to do this next year or just pay cash. I will probably work, it is just one of those rock and a hard place things.

Enough babbling!
