I’ll have to make a note that Sunday morning is the time to hit the grocery store. Hardly any crowds and the parking lot was near empty.
I arrived at around 9:15, and was able to get everything on my list; a first for sure. Back home just before 11.
The wife stayed home, and did not even awaken until I was done unloading.
I still should return to the big city tomorrow to hit the meat market; a new one I found. She wants to build some shelves for the DVD and CD stash, and will require some lumber. I’ll need the pickup for that run, as well as a stop at the liquor store.
I have discovered rye whisky, and I like it. My next run will likely concentrate on a couple of varieties, and it’s cheaper than many bourbons as well as a slightly higher proof.
I am burned out on Crown, Beam, VO and the like. Something new is in order.
I am going to attempt a scratch recipe for Bean With Bacon soup while the weather is cold…then again, maybe not as the wife is busy today carrying out her potted plants, as I am guessing she checked the forecast, and freezing is not happening here for a while. The plants, even though alive, do not do well indoors for many days in a row without proper sunlight.
I am certain that bean with bacon soup freezes well.
Our closing on the refinance is happening Tuesday. Apparently, a roving notary will drop in and we will sign up for another 30 year mortgage. At least we’ll be out from under the dipshit rule of our current mortgage holder, and that will be worth it.
The fauxguration is Wednesday, and I hope to have all my piddly chores done by then.
Still need to fill the gas cans.
