Daily Check-in October 7, 2019

Post by alliesmama4 » Mon Oct 07, 2019 4:58 am

Good early morning. Another sleepless night. I am going to try to see if I am sleepy now. Have been awake all night.. gggrrrr.

Will try to poke my head in later to see how everyone is doing. I have an afternoon appointment with my nurse practitioner and I will be wiped out when I get home. It is a 50 mile wound trip.. Bummer. However she is worth the traveling.

Hope you managed to get some sleep.

Good morning fellow frugalites,

Sun is shining again today, but there is 2.5 inches of snow heading our way for Wednesday. So I will be taking advantage of the sun and walking outside while I can.

Busy day today, between household chore, things I was too lazy to do yesterday, and my biweekly prayer shawl meeting. The two ladies that are usually there will not be today, I will go for a bit to see if anyone new shows up. I think waiting 30 mins will be long enough. Of course I will have my knitting with me and work on it for awhile. Then I will head home and do some pulling up in the garden. With snow coming, things need getting done and done quickly.

Hubby has finished my potato bin and it looks very good. It will keep the potatoes off the floor and well ventilated. Should be much easier to clean than the tubs we used before. Now I need a smaller bin for the onions, but I think I will wait until next year to ask for that.

Frugally speaking things will be carrying on here as usual. Once the carpet is back in the living room and all is put back in it's proper place I am definitely pulling out a frugal idea book or two and searching for something new to add to the regular routine.

As far as projects go, did not finish even one this weekend. I do think that perhaps by tomorrow I will have the last tea towel done and one quilt sandwiched and ready to go. I am hoping the backing for the denim quilt will be done as well. I seem to be working much slower than usual, and the same can be said for my book consumption. Not reading as quickly as I used to for some reason. I wonder if it is a sign of age, this slowing down.

Supper this evening is going to be spaghetti (leaving the menu a bit as there are no leftover lazy cabbage rolls) and meat sauce.

Well off to get some work done, before I dress and head out the door for my morning constitutional (though if you could all see the way I hobble when I first get up you would wonder if I can walk at all).

Today I am grateful for another day of sunshine.

Everybody have a great day. Take care.

Hello all,

Have noticed much reduction in belly swelling, but belly & chest pain aren't reducing yet.

Dd6 insisted on starting a baby loom hat Saturday, I helped her with it a bit yesterday.

Dh’s Saturday canning adventures yielded less than he wanted, but was still happy for it, 5quarts applesauce, 8 quarts juice (3 of those with a cranberry/pomegranate juice boost).

A friend called us yesterday, his son had killed an elk, and they asked if we wanted the meat. Dh said yes. So after girls are dropped at school, we’re going to get the elk & take to our fave meat processor. I’m going for the ride, with pillows & blankets, though not sure how I’ll prop me feet.

Have a bit of gutache, probably too many mini butterfinger candies— since I can eat chocolate now.

I fell asleep some time around 4:00 AM and woke up at 6:45 AM. What the heck? I am forbidden to take a sleep aide since I stop breathing for up to 70 seconds at a time. Sometimes there were 70 episodes during my sleep study a few years ago. My pulmonary Dr wants to send me to a specialist. I told her I thought she was the specialist...lol. Nope she is for breathing and c-pap. Insomnia is a whole other ballgame. The problem is distance to the necessary specialist she wants me to see.

Gayle my addiction is also Butterfinger. I will not buy the mini butterfingers since I am like an alcoholic with a bottle of wine..lol.I tell myself they are small so you can have another and another etc..lol.

What does Elk taste like? I have eaten venison. Does it taste similar? With your beef,hog, and now Elk you will be well stocked with meat for a very long time. What a blessing.
