Gotta Love Online Shopping

I was completely out of Ro Tel and ordered six cans online from Walmart and picked them up at 9 pm last night along with quite a few other things. I needed 10 oz cans. I clicked on the wrong item and ended up with six 28 oz cans.

So, when I got home I edited my Albertson’s order and added the smaller cans and picked that order up this morning. I’ll give Audrey the larger cans and she can stock her pantry. On top of that, what I thought were gallon jugs of vinegar from Albertson’s turned out to be half gallon jugs. Some days I just miss the mark. Oh, well. I’m trying to think of anything else we need and just remembered the frozen dinners we like so I’ll pick up a few tomorrow.

We have a winter storm headed this way that is due to hit later in the day on Wednesday, with freezing precip. Oh, yay. I also need more boneless chicken breasts to stock the freezer and I’m thinking a whole chicken for the crock pot would be nice. Maybe even a nice pot roast. And pot roast means more potatoes and carrots.

Brad’s had a rough day and he’s winding down and getting ready for bed a little earlier than usual. His toes are bothering him where the nails were removed a couple of weeks ago and he had a precancerous spot removed from his upper lip this afternoon, so he’s not feeling his normal chirpy self. Good news is it only took one go at it for the dermatologist to get it all and it wasn’t very deep.

We’ll make a trip to town tomorrow for errands and then I see my chiropractor Wednesday morning and then we’ll be set and ready when the bad weather hits later in the day.

I got a couple of more inches done on the sock ribbing today while I waited on him at the dermatologist’s office. I sat out in the pickup, with the windows down, and enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine. There was an elderly lady waiting in the car next to me and eventually an older man came out of the building and got in the driver’s seat of their car. He had a big bandage on the left side of his face near his jaw line. He looked so tired. As he sat back in the seat of the car, his wife leaned over and gently patted the right side of his face, and they held hands for a minute. Such a simple gesture that said so much.

I needed that! There’s so much anger and resentment and ill feelings these days and it’s refreshing to see normal people simply dealing with day to day challenges in a quiet, peaceful manner.

Just yesterday, looking around on Facebook to see if I could find someone I hadn’t seen in a long time, I came across someone else, the husband of an old school friend who had died, and was appalled at the posts on his page. He’s pro vax and pro mask and the horrible things those folks post about people who don’t want that stuff crammed down their throats made me ill. I quickly blocked him and tried to forget it. Such unbelievable condescension and venom! They must be very unhappy people.

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I signed up for Gab Pro. I renewed my membership online, two years this time. I’m really enjoying the people I follow, and who follow me. I’m also enjoying Bongino’s Locals page, also a paid subscription. Really nice folks there, too. The only thing I do on MeWe is a knitting/crochet group that used to be on Ravelry. We chat every day and I love keeping up with the ladies in the group.

Brad is dozing in his recliner and I’m going to finish this post and stop typing on the laptop and let him rest. He needs it.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
