Yesterday, I stopped by the store and all I bought was chocolate. The new Ferrar 'signature' box of chocolates? Disappointing. For that kind of money, I want either quantity or quality. There were 8 pieces of chocolate and the ones I've tried so far were just meh. Live and learn. I also got a box of chocolate covered cherries because reasons. Those never disappoint. And I picked up some turtles for Hubs because Hubs loves turtles.
What I really need are these. Guylian Belgian seashell chocolates with their hazelnut filling. OMG, so good and so worth the price. You know, if I wasn't such a tightwad.
I sent out Christmas cards last week. At the same time, I sent out my middle sister's b-day card. She got the b-day card but not the x-mas card and Mom hasn't gotten her card either. WTF? They were in the same batch going to the same place.
Speaking of the mail, Mom was telling me they're having problems with mail just disappearing. For instance, a company they do business with sent them a check on 11/1 and it never arrived. Of course, they're in Michigan and that was right around the election. I suspect the check went into someone's garage with a boatload of other mail :cough:ballots:cough:
And that's all I have to say about that.
Yesterday morning, Hubs went out and fed the deer like he always does. Usually, 3-6 deer arrive shortly thereafter. Yesterday? Thirty-three deer showed up. 33. And that was without any of the bucks. They went through the corn like damn and whoa, and then milled around looking for more. Hubs took another bucket out and while some of the deer scattered, the ones that stayed went through that corn lickety-split. Sheesh. Sorry, deers, I know the unexpected snow makes it hard for you to forage, but we can't afford to feed you like you're cattle. Umm, and if you stop letting the crows chase you away, you'll get more corn in your bellies. Just sayin'.
In poker, I moved up from the 10K room to the 100K room, and now I have almost 8mil in chips. It wasn't hard once I got used to the larger amounts, or more specifically, the potential to lose larger amounts. I used to cringe when I dropped 20K. Now I can drop 200K before I cringe. It's all play money, so no big deal.
And I think that's about enough out of me this morning. What's up with you?
