Yes, same here, DIL and grandson here, just saw grandson once when 5 months, they are here till son gets
here and they are able to buy a house and get settled. That will be the middle of winter, bad time.

I'm hoping all is well but with the additional work I have quit on the garden, wanted to can sooooo much
more, but I just get exhausted. Trying to tell DIL, but she gets stumped and also you can tell she is not disciplined
to just keep working when you have batches of fresh items to prepare.

She means well but she is just not focused like us old folks, still, she is a good mom so not complaining. Our kids just
grew up differently.

Grandson is having a ball with grandpa, with us he cries, etc, with grandpa settles right down
Well I too digressed. I think I will be ok, felt some better today after not trying to can half the night. Hubby says
no garden next year, going to kill me.

Grandson got his cat scan and blood work today. Monday hearing evaluation.

So far his tests are coming back good.

I am getting ready to order a bunch of AA and AAA batteries. I have candles that run on 4 of them for
quite a long time, they make enough light around to see at night. The candles I have can be set up on
timers so really handy.

Those of you on the east coast better get fuel, the Colonial pipeline is going to shut down. They
ship 100 million gallons of gas, diesel, and av gas a day up there. I would get all I could before
it does. May be to late part shut Wed, rest today I believe.

Gas just went up again $.20 a gallon in 2 days, I'm filling up as is hubby every time we go to
town. Expect much bigger jumps each day.

Our neighbor offered us apples and pears today, their trees are loaded. We need to get there and pick them, hope
to dry and can them this weekend. They are old trees and the apples are pretty big, they also taste really good.

They say California would not be effected, but gas is up 30 cents this last week.

Good deal on the apples and pears.

Going for an ultrasound of the heart tomorrow to see if valves were damaged in the heart attack.
If no, that's it, if yes, then a heart cath.

With more NK talk, missile tests and now an H-bomb - goodness gracious. We are concerned about an EMP so doing a little more research.

We are looking at keeping certain quantities of certain pantry goods all the time now. We have been in our little house almost a year so we have a better idea of our eating patterns now that we aren't near our kids any more.
Filled in some gaps over the last 2 weeks, stocked up on drinking water, paper towels, soap, OTC meds and canning jars.

And of course keeping all cars filled - all our gas cans are currently full as are the extra propane tanks.

Catfeet, you might want to try something my Dad always did (and I do now) when the trees are loaded down. To keep the branches from breaking, we would always thin out the smaller fruits in the bunches, and then prop up the branches with 2x4s. The 2x4s provide support for the branches, and help keep the branches from bending too much, and then breaking.
