Waiting for 7:30 a.m. so I can start my monthly marathon shopping.

I'm using the time to review recipes looking for more ideas, but I'm running out of room on my shopping list!

Just got my latest order of wool so I will be spending part of the morning putting it into my inventory with prices and yardage, etc. It helps me when I go to use the yarn for products to sell. I found this wonderful notebook that records all the information including my patterns and finished product pictures.

It's starting to rain, so I'm going to make Steve Kroll's refrigerator pickles. I might also make candied ginger. And I'll make couscous salad with grilled veggies and vinaigrette dressing for dinner.

I'm back from shopping. All the groceries are put away, although there are some things that will need prep - separating, packaging, freezing some.

Most of the prep work can be put off until tomorrow after my back has had a chance to rest.

I got a huge (9.9 #) pork sirloin. It's cut into two pieces, one fairly large, the other huge.

The bigger piece is now braising in beer at 275°.

I got quite a few items that were lower sodium, but wish some of the chips companies would come out with less sodium products. I miss my snacks.

Just finished chopping up 3 pounds of bacon ends and dividing it into 4 equal portions, which are going to be fried up into homemade bacon bits for assorted recipes. I've already fried up two quantities and the house smells heavenly. Can't imagine why I'm craving breakfast!

Drying out (not in that way!).

Got soaked tonight when I went to bring in Horse from the field. I've arrived home dripping from everywhere and reeking of wet horse! Sitting in my dressing gown and waiting for the water to heat up for a shower!

You don't have a water heater? How long does it take for the water to heat up?

Just got done prepping strawberries with honey and basil chiffonade for stirring into my morning yogurt. Never had strawberries this way, they taste wonderful! I hope they make it till morning and I only use 1/3 of them. It's supposed to last me three days.

Spent a good part of the day re-potting houseplants, now I'm cooling off inside. I love my houseplants, but they can be so needy. Also went to a couple of yard sales earlier and found some fun stuff that needs to be put away - mostly Halloween and Christmas décor. Like I need more....

I'm hungry, so thinking about what sounds good to nibble on for dinner.

I talked to Poo today. He started his PT for his lungs. He won't even consider going back to work until he can breath for at least thirty minutes without getting out of breath. He figures that is the length of time he takes with each patient. He can sit down between patients. I am not happy with his thinking, but there is not much I can do about it. So I am just praying and hoping his boss stops him before he tries to go back to work.
