Somewhat busy day

November 28th, 2012 at 06:38 am

My to do list today is as follows...

1. Clean up the living room as there are boxes and Christmas deco strewn everywhere.

2. Make dinner. I'm making homemade turkey soup. Easy and yummy. I have the turkey carcas simmering with an onion and bay leaves rt now. Smells wonderful.

3. Shell pecans. Getting to be very tedious. I do a little every day.

4. Pay bills. Enough said...

5. Laundry. Prob have 4 loads.

6. Make out my grocery list. Need to look at sales and make a list to price match.

7. Clean out the fridge. Prob have some science experiments growing in the back. hahaha.

8. Wrap presents.

Other happenings...our desktop computer and my husband's laptop are both having problems. Evidently both need new hard drives. Who knows how much that will cost. I am currently on my sons laptop. Maybe I should just buy one of my own. Merry Christmas to me!

Took our kitty in yesterday to get her fixed. Prob $100 for that.

Money just seems to be flowing thru my fingers and I can't stop it. Makes me anxious.

I got news yesterday that a good friend of mine is moving away. We have been friends for 11 yrs. Gonna be hard without her.

Pecan pie

November 14th, 2012 at 06:59 am

A friend and I went pecan gathering. I scored about 40 lbs for free. I paid 25 cents/lb to get them cracked. Pretty good deal. Today I will try my hand at making a pecan pie. Looked up a recipe online and took into consideration the adjustments in the reviews. Hopefully it will be yummy...

I will also be making spiced pecans to give as Christmas gifts along with some cookies. Hopefully they will be well recieved.
