Good morning, tt!
Gosh, I wish I had more stamina - I push myself to keep up. However, like everything, when you enjoy the task at hand you seem to have more energy for it, and I'm thoroughly enjoying the jam process...and result!
Refridgerator pickles count! That's a great way to use those cukes, tt, and they last quite awhile in the fridge not having been actually canned for long term. The only step you're skipping is the boiling of the filled jars in the water bath...yours will be crispier for that.
Glad you and Gracie are still loving your memory foam gel beds. Forgot to ask her about her bum. ;)
Yes, if I were a raccoon, I'd make a huge mess to get to that trash, tt.
I don't know what I pay for groceries, individually, either. DH used to ask me how much was this and that, and stopped after I asked in response if I needed to decide if we were going to have milk that week BASED on the price. Of course not so my answer would have always been I dunno.
And, since losing weight and getting to my ultimate size goal I've adopted (at least temporarily) a similar attitude with clothes and shoes. You only live once, and I'm tired of skimping alllll the time. I'm not paying full price for things, but I'm not aiming to spend less than $10 on each piece at a thrift shop, either. Rue La La and Hautelook have been good sources of my spree that, after a few more Fall/Winter pieces, is winding down.
So, are you going out, tt? It's hot and humid... Have a great day either way. :)
Discretion is the better part of valor.
