I wish they would fix the time stamps to be accurate to the poster's location. They've been off for two years and it is driving me crazy. I'd like my posts to reflect the actual day and time of my post.
Anyway, we had more snow almost a half an hour after my last post and it was about 2 inches, and then 1 inch later that night, and last night it started snowing around 11:30 p.m. and my husband said it was still snowing at 8 a.m. when he started work. It's not now, but it dumped another 8 inches. Some of it is melting now because it is bright and sunny and I can see the icicles dripping, but that is just going to mean ice.
I'm glad we made it to the store when we did, even if the only root veggies we could get were sweet potatoes. The parsnips were smaller than carrots and the turnips were tiny. I was hoping to get out today to get cheese at Winco and see if they had them there. So I guess we'll have to make do with the two turnips we have and the two giant parsnips. We have carrots and we have a 65 pounds left of the potatoes we grew, so that's plenty. I can stretch the parsnips by cutting them in half, so can get four meals out of them. We never have them by themselves, but mixed with other veggies. If it melts enough tomorrow we'll go, but otherwise no grocery shopping until February 1st, except for greens, milk, and eggs.
I've lost 6.8 pounds in the last two days. The first day I wasn't on my diet yet, I'd just dropped down from 4 cans of soda a day to one. I got back on them when Thanksgiving happened, and they are so addictive. But then next day I was on my diet so most of the weight dropped of by this morning. I really hope I can do it this time.
My whole family said they would try with me, but both my husband and son ate a ton of pancakes this morning and then DH had a sandwich for lunch. That is not cutting back on carbs and that is not trying. I guess I have to do this on my own again, which kind of sucks, but I can't let it derail me like it always does to have no support. I know my daughter would try if the other two would, but if they don't she won't. Even if she's the one who needs to the most for health reasons. Oh, well. The only person I can control is myself, so that is what I must do.
I think I'll spend the day looking at the two seed catalogs that came the day after Christmas. That always makes me happy. Although I won't be buying seeds this year unless it is one or two items. I bought plenty last year. I just hope the garden is big enough this year that I can plant everything I want to plant.
