Living The Routine

Today is shopping day.  The old larder has been significantly depleted over the past few weeks making it time for a journey out to visit Uncle Wally.  Shopping is always so much fun (he says sarcastically) and we are so ever glad that there is no inflation so that our “no cost of living increase” will more than cover the cost of our grocery bill (he says sarcastically).  None the less, we will have food in the cupboard, a roof over our heads, and Christmas gifts under the tree so we are grateful. 

Things at the Plantation are continuing to roll along.  Yesterday Miss Judy continued working on one of her quilting projects – we promise to show pictures after Christmas, if you get my drift.  I defrosted the ‘fridge, gave the bathroom a thorough cleaning, did some reading, and helped Larry the Cook prepare last night’s meal. 

We attended the four o’clock social and then had dinner at the clubhouse.  It was meatloaf night (we like meatloaf if it is done right and Larry’s meatloaf is done right) with “smashed ‘taters” and gravy and green beans.  There’s always a garden salad, tea or lemonade, and dessert.  We ended the day with computers, reading, and television.  Not a real exciting day, but we kept busy anyway. 

It’s been a few days since I addressed any of the “Ta Do List” items so I need to get back at it over the next couple of days.  There are a couple of items that I want to get cleared off the list before we head to Tennessee for Christmas.  The rest can wait until next year (why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?).

Well there you have it – Take Care Until Next Time - - - -
