Gayla, prayers for that good,
Turtle, keep us posted on your Darthmouth trip.

Took the curtains down and threw in the dryer to get the dust off. Decluttered the kitchen cabinets. Washed a load of clothes and dried outside. Last evening, I canned a few green beans. We had dinner from my garden, potatoes, green beans, yellow squash. I found a little cooked beef in the freezer. Thawed it and warmed it up for the protein. I am determined to use those small containers from the freezer.
Today, no big plans. it is 66 and very humid. Will be up to 86 . Maybe get a storm. We could use some rain. Only had a sprinkle over the weekend. The plants are drooping over. This weather has been really werid. My chives are blooming again and I have raspberrys blooming again. Not the kind that normally do that. It got so cool and now is so hot again. I think that plants think it is a new season to grow.
We had a werid thing happen yesterday. DH was washing windows for me. We have the kind... less

I have been meaning to do this for years......I finally bought some door sweeps since we haven't had any for about 7 years as the vinyl just peeled off the bottom of the door. I was rolling towels to keep drafts away and shoving them under the doors.
Our windows have large gaps in them as well and the cold air will chill you to the bone...So I bought some foam tape to stuff in there as well as clear weather taping for those windows. The vinyl trim has pulled away from the glass on a sliding window and I'm hoping the tape can hold it together until next summer. It says it can hold together a cracked window.....
I got some other household items that was needed and will have my winter tires put on in October since we get snow at that point. I keep emergency food/water/blanket/lights in my car 24/7.
I had put insulation behind the outlets in my home as I felt cold air blowing through and it has helped somewhat, but not completely.
I have thermal curtains on the patio window but that... less

I generally don't make or keep mixes on hand. For me, it's just as easy to start something from scratch when I want it as it is to find storage space for the mixes I would have sto start from scratch anyway. However... there is something to be said for the convenience of having a mix on hand, especi...
