Re: Daily Check In April 18, 2021

Bev, I went to Food Lion. It's the less expensive full service grocery store here. I made a spicy black bean-rice-chicken concoction for my lunches this week. Roasted a sheet pan of herbed chicken and carrots and made baked potatoes and baked cinnamon apples. Some of the chicken juices spilled in th...

Re: Daily Check In April 18, 2021

Bev, your grocery total and mine were almost exactly the same. I did buy some meat this week: organic chicken leg quarters, bacon, Italian sausage, and salami. We did not need much fresh produce but stocked up on canned tomatoes, bought a lot of dairy products, and bought a big box of cat litter and...

Re: Daily Check In April 18, 2021

I am thinking we will also have roasted chicken for supper, Jackie. But I will do legs and thighs instead of a whole bird. DH is better about eating leftovers if they are grab and go. Today I must buy groceries and would love to have enough time to finish altering some blouses. Yesterday I did a goo...

JCKitty, the bushes have had a few quinces, but they don't get very big before something gnaws on them and they shrivel up. We just enjoy the flowers mostly. The hedge also does a grand job of keeping the dogs back from the fence.

Re: Daily Check-in April 17,2021

Clem, it's good that you got outside and saw some people. I gave the dogs baths and trimmed Rosie's very long coat a bit while I had her in the sink. She tries to bite if she can turn around and get at me, which she can't in laundry sink. She did snarl at me and I told her we should have named her T...

Re: Daily Check-in April 17,2021

I looked through the online photos of Prince Phillip's funeral. The Queen sitting alone seemed to underscore her loss but also how resolute she is. It's a warm and lovely morning. The pollen count must be awful, but we're coping. I must do routine chores, make a grocery list and give the dogs baths....
