I am considering going to bed, but I still have so much to do.....We are having a "holiday party" Saturday night(tomorrow). I took the day off to prepare but was feeling quite ill most of the day, that coupled with following the sad events of the day meant that I got little accomplished. I felt better this evening, so got busy, but still hours behind :(.

It is 74F. in my apartment. And I am freezing. I just had to boost up the thermostat again. I am on full aspirin and a blood thinner. The problem is that my apartment is on the direct side of North. I never get any sun, so the walls are always naturally cool or even cold depending on the outside temperature. I hate wearing a sweater inside. But I have it on now. When I feel this cold, my nose runs worse than a snotty little kid playing outside in the snow. Poor Spike. Whenever he comes in the first thing he does is take off his coat and put the fan on high blowing right on him. He hates heat. He keeps his apartment at about 60F. Teddy has a blanket in his bed and at night he crawls right under it, head and all.

Right now I am watching ER Nights taking place at St. Vincent's Hosp. in Sydney. Aus. I have to admit, I can understand the Aussie accent better than I can some of the dialects of England. The English just hate to move their mouth when they talk. As a result most of their words stay inside their mouth. My first husband was from England and it took me a few months to get him to speak up and open his mouth. When he saw me just standing there staring at him, he got the message and would talk so I could understand him. He had more of a Scottish brouge. He came from the Lakes District right up on the border of Scotland.

I just got back from taking full advantage of the sales the town grocery store was having. $1/box for San Giorgio pasta, 2 for 1 Hillshire Farms sausage (Yay! They got some in), $1.25 bricks of cream cheese... I already have some mixed up with some diced jalapenos , $1.69 pork chops! Amazing price for around here. They look pretty good, too, bone in and with a little fat. Bricks of Land O Lakes butter for $2.50 I should be good on butter for a while
I was feeling so good that I didn't even explain to the cashier why I did not take advantage of the store's usual 5 for $20 on packaged meats instead of the weekly sale of 2 for $4.99 and I bought 4. Let's see... 5 for $20 or 4 for $10... I just said, I'm good and smiled
It's a beautiful day!

Gonna make some ice... or rather fill the ice trays with water and let the freezer make the ice. See if I have a glass jar suitable for pickled beans.

I was going to wing it, so I could call it my own
My recipe included spilling it as I was trying to position it in the freezer on that rack It would help if my freezer door swung open all the way.

I got my mayo jar cleaned out, too.
Pretty much just waiting on GG now...
