Sunday Mornin’, (snow) Coming Down

Sunday was wonderful for one reason: my toilet flushed! But it was snowing all day…

I hard-boiled all but the brown eggs Jake and Carla bought so they wouldn’t go bad. I ate two of them with the new horseradish I bought and cried for 15 minutes. That sh*t was HOT!!!

I started the major clean up in the main floor of the house. The kitty litter downstairs that was on the floor was still wet, so I couldn’t do anything with it, then.

I had thawed the Christmas roast out and used it to make a beef vegetable soup around 4:00 p.m. I sautéed an onion and some celery in the Dutch oven while I trimmed the beef. I threw the beef in with some garlic, the little bit of chicken broth left and a whole box of beef broth. I added in a half bag of mixed frozen veggies, the leftover fresh hash browns and the rest of the kale that Carla bought. Sounds weird, but it tasted good!

I had two bowls, let the rest cool and then put it in freezer containers.

My daughter Melissa called a little after 6:00 and we chatted for a short while (for a change). Then my friend Vicky called about 8:30 p.m. to ask if they had “snow days” where we worked. I laughed (I couldn’t help it) and told her no. But, I told her to stay home anyway and take a vacation day (I already decided to do that myself). There is no reason to get stuck or in an accident just to go to work…

Sidebar: I seriously think I am about ready to retire…

I watched a movie and then went to bed around 10:30 p.m.
