No heat Tuesday

Today was the free lunch. They served Shepherd's Pie with pickles and onions on the side. However, the stew had biscuits on the top and mashed potatoes on the side. I just had a biscuit and mashed potatoes and a piece of cake. Can you say carbs? I did not want to eat peas or beef, so that was it for me. What I had for dinner was not their fault!

We went to Publix and got four half-gallons of e2milk because they were on special. One gallon cost $7 instead of $9/gal.

I went around town cutting from public property pieces of foliage with glossy leaves, red berries, and huge thorns. It is for a table centerpiece for lunch next week.

My universal remote quit again, so I had to take it back to WM so the guy could make it work again. Last night, I could only turn the volume up or down and mute the sound. I am getting so tired of this. Thankfully, it was on a channel I like. Plus, this TLC TV is failing again.

Tonight, it felt like someone punched me in the side of my throat as I immediately became ill. By morning, I will be ready for something to stop all this. Now, I know why I have felt so tired all day.

Monday night, I roasted three turkey breasts in one oven bag and transferred each to a gallon bag. Today, I was going to put Tommy's into quart freezer bags. I felt so tired that I gave him the quart bags and told him to tear off chunks and divide his 7+ lbs. turkey breast into the gallon and four quart bags. I made the green bean casserole and sent the whole thing home in the aluminum pan it was cooked in. I promised him dressing and gravy and sweet potatoes next week. Ha! We had dinner at the church on thanksgiving, so this is a little extra.

He took home milk, bread, and raisins.

 I have not had heat since Thursday! I do not have $140 to spend on a  service call from an electrician. I may freeze to death tonight,,,,brrr, Now, I have to get my hands under the covers.

So, there was nothing exciting or important today.

  2. I think it's colder at our FL place than up here! I really want a nice, long cold snap between now and Christmas, along with a heavy bit of snow.

  4. I hope you can catch your oncoming illness before it gets too bad. Sometimes lots of rest helps. Sounds like you have been busy cooking. Do you enjoy cooking? Me, not so much. And bundle up in the cold weather. I sometimes wear gloves to bed. Always socks. If I can keep my feet and hands warm I usually sleep well. Prayers for you to feel better.

  14. Like everyone else, I'm concerned for Linda's welfare. Has anyone worked out, over time, where Linda lives? Names of friends or family?? There must be some clues in previous posts that might help track her down. It's all very worrying.

  15. I too am very worried I know Sluggy had her phone # and I think knows the town she lives in and had tried calling once. (Someone hung up) I'm hoping she'll call again, or sadly look in the local newspaper etc. I've tried to look for clues in reading back posts. Not trying to be a lurker but really concerned.

  16. Someone posted on American Dreamer's blog that they have been in contact with Linda as of Thursday 12/13--

    "Just wanted to let everyone know that's concerned about Linda, I spoke to her on the phone last night...she's okay, but her computer has a virus and she doesn't have the money to have it fixed. I can't post on her blog, so please share this info. Thanks"
