Yesterday you saw the egg shells that dumped in the kitchen floor. Here’s how my day went today. I realize I have a very good life so I’m not whining . . I’m kinda looking behind me to see if there’s a black cloud following me around.
First, I woke up at 3:30 a.m. I never wake up and can’t go back to sleep but I could not go back to sleep. I tossed and turned and finally got up about 4. Vince got up about 4:15 to see if there was something wrong. I told him I was fine . . just couldn’t sleep . . go back to bed. I was happy to have a couple of hours alone. I sat and knitted til daylight then went out to the garden. Vince came out about 8:15 and he was going to the grocery store.
I went into the house, washed my hands, and went to deal with the freeze dryer. The eggs were done so I put a quantity of about 5 eggs into mylar ags, added an oxygen absorber, sealed those and will give them to Chad for taking camping. I ended up with 16 bags. There were 88 eggs total so if each bag has exactly the same amount in it (they don’t because I roughly measured with a cup), there would be 5-1/2 eggs per bag.
I came back to the house, tackled the peaches. I added 8 quarts of peaches for the freezer, for a total of 23 quart bags. Then I cut enough to fill the 4 extra trays for the next load in the freeze dryer.
By then Vince was home from his errands so I put away the groceries. He was able to get two packages of ground meat. Each package was 2 pounds and I had to divide those into 1 pound packages and vacuum seal that for the freezer.
By now, it was about 1 p.m. and I was dragging. I told Vince I needed a nap and he said “Good because I imagine you’re going to be grouchy. You didn’t get enough sleep!” Took my nap.
Woke up about 2:30 and since we’re having sandwiches today, I started getting stuff out for the sandwiches.
The worst thing that happened today: I dropped an entire quart jar of my homemade mustard and it shattered. I was sick about losing that mustard. It was a mess to clean up but dang it . . I LOVE that mustard. I guess I should start looking for more wasabi mustard seeds. I still have a pint of the mustard left but I do not want to run out!
Just to be safe, I’m going to sit and knit . . at least til it cools down and I can go out and work in the garden a bit.
When I woke up about 2:30, our weather station showed 107. By the time I dropped the mustard and cleaned it up, it had cooled off to 105 but it’s jumping between 105 and 107 and yes, I see two grains of wheat under the weather station. I guess we don’t have a hungry mouse in the kitchen!
