I'm not sure how much longer I'll be doing these posts. I guess as long as the chaos remains, there'll be something to talk about.
Have you heard about the video Pelosi put out where she's talking about us being in this together eating ice cream (or some such nonsense) while she stands in front of her $20,000 SubZero fridge filled with gourmet ice cream? Sorry, lady, the Dollar General here is out of ice cream and my Kenmore floor model fridge's freezer is full of meat, cheese, and bread I had to buy to stay out of the stores due to the chaos.
Down to my last half-bowl of cheap-ass Great Value super-tub vanilla, btw. The last of the GV orange sherbet went to the Owl yesterday. No ice cream for us po' folks for a while, I guess. I did manage to buy a box of those freezer ice thingies. Oh, yum*. I went all fancy and bought the Italian Ice kind, which should keep the Owl happy. They were a dollar.
I had a real hankering for a chocolate chip cookie yesterday and went to get one. But they were gone. I muttered to myself 'someone ate the last cookie and didn't bother to tell me' at which point an abashed Hubs poked his head into the kitchen and admitted he was the culprit. I don't care if he ate the last cookie. I like making cookies for him to eat. It was the not telling me part because if they tell me, I can make more. I almost made more cookies last night, the need was so great, but they wouldn't have cooled in time for me to put them away before I went to bed, so nope. I'll get to that later today. Along with a batch of oatmeal cookies, because those are gone, too.
Three people on a menu typically meant for two isn't an easy thing. Everything goes quicker. Usually, I eat leftovers for lunch. No leftovers. Good thing I like soup.
Yesterday morning, I went fishing by myself. Just me and the lake. It was necessary. I didn't catch anything, but I did get some time in reacquainting myself with the baitcaster reel, so when I take Owl out again, I can teach her the spincaster I usually use. Oh, and I also had 4 ospreys keeping me company. I even got to see one dive for its prey. (It missed, but still cool.) I'm such a bird nerd. =o)
The parking lot at the lake wasn't quite as full this time. Still, more than on a typical Thursday morning. I guess there are worse ways to spend your 'forced not to work' days. As long as they all get in their boats and stay away from me, it's fine.
Well, I suppose I ought to get my butt in gear and start making cookies.
What are you up to in these chaotic times?
* Note sarcasm. I want ICE CREAM, not frozen, flavored water.
