Post 3584 - A Day Later

Well, hello there, my lovelies.

I will be turning in soon. We have to get up early to drive to the cottage so we can shut it down for the Winter.  Weather depending, we will mow the lawn one last time. By Sunday, we will load the car with the foodstuffs we are bringing back with us and return them here.

We have so much food in the house. So. Very. Much! We have a full fridge, with a good size freezer on the bottom. A full freezer that is nearly as tall as I am, stuffed to the gills. Another freezer down here in my home office, full of freezer-burned items. Now, we have to find room in our fridge, in our freezers, in our cupboards, for the food that is at the cottage. Mother of Moses.

Plus, there is food in the Valley, both in a full-sized chest freezer, and the fridge freezer.

Counting Newbie, it is just the three of us. There is no need for us to have so many victuals, but there you go.

In an effort to use a bit of that food, I prepared breakfast this morning. A Western sandwich, only I used bacon instead of ham.  We hate ham. It is to meat as Bob Dylan is to singing. Bacon with orange and yellow peppers, mushrooms and onions. Add some beaten eggs to the mixture and stir until the eggs are cooked. Serve between two pieces of toast. Plus, McCafe coffee, which you can buy in local grocery stores and prepare in your coffee maker. We don't like Tim Horton's coffee. It is to coffee as acting is to Pauly Shore.

Made several sandwiches.

Mid-afternoon, we hit the two thriftstores in Spryfield. One is run by a local church, St. Paul's or something. Huge thrift store, although the prices are not what I would call thrifty. The Salvation Army down the street was better. All clothing was fifty percent off. I got two Kirkland shirts for about $3.00 each. One of them still had the Costco tags on it; it had cost $17.00 new.

We left there and went to the Sobeys in Spryfield. I had not been in that store in... 15 years or so, I think. Quite a spell. The store is quite nice. And since it is open 24/7, the hours are hard to beat.

This evening we watched a couple episodes of Season Two of Stranger Things. All nine episodes were released today. Episode two ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, so it was a challenge to back away from the tv for the evening. We have an early day tomorrow.

Speaking of which, I have an early day tomorrow. I think I will turn in.

See you... Sunday, I guess.
