Full Fridge

August 21st, 2006 at 12:29 am

I came back to town from the camping trip today, flush with food. I felt like a bit of an oddball, but if two pancakes or a near empty jar of jam are going in that garbage, it’s my natural instinct to rescue them. Other foods that I help rescue include some garden squash, a hot dog, a bit of left over steak, hamburger and chicken; some provolone cheese, and some sautéed mushrooms. I also brought back a bunch of the chopped veggies and some of the potato salad I brought.

I did put in $5 towards a gift for the hostess at the cabin, but that and the extra gas was worth it. I did end up feeling mildly punk, but not miserable. Did nap on Saturday in the tent. I would really like to be headache free for a while but I guess I’ll take mild or medium headaches over doozies.

I’m getting close to needing a freezer. The plums are really coming in, and berries will be coming. I’m looking at a Kenmore 5 cubic foot chest freezer for $169.99 from Sears. Maybe I’ll do it next weekend. A lot of thrifty chores coming up: my favorite thrift store tomorrow in Sacramento, the “buck a bag” book sale at the library next Friday night, and freezer. The “buck a bag” sale is pretty great; I love stocking up on mysteries. If you pack the bags right, the books are around three cents apiece. Most of the gift worthy books sold at the regular sale, for 50 cents or a dollar, but sometimes there are great finds.

Another 17 hour day tomorrow, leave the house at 5 am and get back at 10 pm.

    I don't actively work for 17 hours. I'm "on the clock" most of the time. I travel to Sacramento and go straight to a meeting. I got out of the meeting at 1 and had time to kill, though I hate that phrase. ("As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.") There are plusses and minuses to travelling for work.
