Nice pics, Munky, handsome family!

Picked more cherry toms and green beans. My counter top is full of produce and newly canned goodies. I also have a surplus of store-bought red grapes and cherries, so last chance to eat them, otherwise they're going into the freezer.

Very nice pic Munky! Looking forward to the official pictures when the groom gives you permission.

COZI is available on antenna too. Between that, MeTV, THIS-TV, Bounce, MOVIES!, theworks, and My RITV, Himself has more old movies and TV shows to pick from than there are hours in the day. The living room TV has all those channels set. The TV in the kitchen (and the converter box that summers in the basement but moves to the 2nd floor den during the cold months) are set to just the main digital stations. The only exceptions are the ".2" PBS stations, plus both 69.1 and 69.3 for ION in our area. I never watch those stations so I figure why have them in my way when I scan through.


I'm listening to the game and hoping my grumble guts settle soon. No church for me because I don't want to stray too far from home, but I do need to make a run to the corner grocery store (3/4 mile from our house) and pick up a couple items from their weekend sale selection. And I do not trust Himself to bring home the right stuff.

Doing a little happy dance...TL and I scored a side of grass-fed beef for a decent (not cheap--but not terrible) price!

Teehee. I was just going to write that we are emailing each other about the details on this side of grass fed beef.

I love the Utz Unsalted Potato Chips. I also buy unsalted pretzels. I don't have to worry about anyone else fighting me for them. LOL I am not big on salty foods.

I found out that I planted the wrong kind of hydrangeas. They both were gifts I received, and those plants are not suited to replanting in the yard. They grow big and bushy but don't get any flowers on them. For that, you are supposed to buy them at a nursery. Is there anything I can do to get them to bloom? I don't care if they blood pink or blue...just want flowers on the darn thing!

I am sitting here after watching the news and wondering if our friends in California got some of that rain. Or are they in the area where there are floods and mud slides. It seems like Calif. just can't seem to get it right. Drought or floods and mud slides.

I still haven't gone shopping. I have no idea what Spike is planning. If I don't hear from him by tomorrow I will get my EBT card from him and have The Pirate take me. I have never been in this Stop and Shop and have no idea how it is laid out. So it is going to be a looong shopping trip. At DeMoulas, I know which aisles I can skip. I hate having to learn a new store. I will stop at the Service Desk first and ask if they have a map of the store. Most stores do. I have nothing important to do today, so I am going to work on my needlework. The house is clean from top to bottom. I have had an arguement with The Pirate about picking up after himself. I am not his maid. If he feels he can't do that little thing, then he can no longer come here. I am in a real pissy ass mood today. I hope everyone just stays away from me until I get back to myself.

Addie, I hate learning a new store, too. We finally got a grocery store back in our local strip mall. Their prices are higher than I am accustomed to. Also, last night I bought a quart of milk. The sign said $1.25 but it rang up $1.33. I hate that. It's only a few cents, but each time they sell that item they are screwing someone. It's a brand new store, they shouldn't have that problem. Also, the same saurkraut I buy elsewhere for $2 is $2.99 there. I think this is going to be a place to shop when I'm in a hurry for one or 2 things. They do have a $1 section that keeps me from having to make a special trip to Dollar Tree for some things.

Carol,I don't know if you are aware, but in this state, if the sign say $1.25, then they HAVE to sell it at that price. They can lose their milk license for that. Next time let them know you will report them. They have the choice of taking the sign down or allowing you to pay the advertised price. And of course you know there is no tax on food items in this state. So they can't use that excuse. They also have to separate the taxable items from the non taxable ones.
