When we shopped Friday, I bought a bottle of Nyquil all-night cough relief and some Mucinex, which I had been taking but had run out of; these cough-and-cold remedies are expensive! I'm glad I have an envelope with money set aside for stuff like that, because our grocery budget couldn't have handled it. I have slept well for two nights, and that alone makes me feel like a new woman. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be recovered enough to go with Cliff and the dog on a walk. We shall see.
I have a craving for Mexican food, and am trying to choose between taco soup and healthified chicken tortilla casserole. Tough choice, but since I have the ground beef thawed, I'll probably do the soup.
Cliff recently spent some of his tractor fund on a wood stove for his shop. He and his nephew have been gathering wood for several days, and he has quite a pile now. There's always been a heater in the shop, but it uses propane; that's so costly, he hesitated to use it as much as he would have liked to. Now he's set, and believe me, I only see him at mealtime or in the evenings. He'll no doubt spend some time inside today watching football. When I went to bed last night he was watching yesterday's games, which I had saved on the DVR for him. I'd be willing to bet he went to sleep before they were over; he'd been awake since 5:30 yesterday morning. He'd been up for over an hour when he asked me, "When does it get daylight, anyhow?" Poor guy.
I really have nothing momentous to share, but since I didn't do an entry yesterday I figured I'd better check in. Bitter cold is headed our way, and possibly three to five inches of snow. I doubt we'll get that much, but we surely could use the moisture.
I keep dreaming about the garden I'll have, come spring. I'll plant peas and lettuce in February if there's a thaw.
Come on, springtime!
By the way, be on guard against cabin fever this time of year; I got this little gem from Wil, of The Daily Snooze. Click HERE.
