I think I'll just stick with the pound cake, and someone else is bringing vanilla ice cream...it will be good.

K.I.S.S.

Val warns to take it easy with the fruit, as it is potent.

I need to find a very small ladle.

I don't think this stuff is shippable...you should see what I did to it to package it up for CanOpener.

Val has already started another batch, but I won't until berries start coming in next Spring.

Kinda fun.

I got a PM from cwf a little while ago. Hillsboro is between here and Bryan where my daughter and her family live. I'll try to arrange a meeting on one of my trips south.

Then why do the highlights keep increasing faster than my wisdom does?

Seeing myself most of the time in just a bathroom light, I don't realize how grey I am until I see a recent photograph of myself...like the selfie I took in Chicago last week.

Ahh, well....we get older, or we die.

Little house is cleaned and vacuumed, and my staging area by the front door has grown immensely.

There is a phenomenal amount to do, and to load up, in preparation for being gone for three months.

I think I'm going to break with tradition and turn the space heater on in the Interstate tomorrow, so that I can load items in the morning that might freeze before I leave on Sunday.

It will make Sunday less stressful.

We had wind chills in the teens again last night, but the sun is shining brightly and there is no precipitation to deal with.

Can't complain about that, having left in snow and ice in more than one year past....when Doug was doing the driving.

Solo me, tho not by choice...

It's too (expletive deleted) cold on a mountaintop this time of year. Dispensing wisdom that way will have to wait for summer.

BTW, DIR1, thanks for the compliment a few posts back. I think the same of you.

Thanks, Mike.

I'm reminding myself that loading and unloading, winterizing and de winterizing, etc., is the price one pays for the privilege of traveling.

No point in whining about it...if I want to go and do, this is part of it.

Gathering together yarn, needing to take as much as I can as no point in buying more when I already have so much.

I've decided I will continue to do prayer shawls while I'm gone, in between winter hats and scarves, and can just ship them back 2-3 at a time.

Why not? I and Hospice can continue to get volunteer hours, I will use up my yarn stash. and the finished items will not take up precious space.

Sigh.


Maggie

Mimi!

I am shocked...shocked and appalled, to find you even know an expletive to delete!

I am chuckling as I read your posts, ladies! LOL! Just because we have white hair (and perhaps some wisdom to share), does not mean anyone will climb that mountain to hear it.

I envision one or two of us "old wise , white haired ladies" sitting in a high mountain cave, wrapped in a bear skin cloak...( one which we, of course, procured on our own, using only our wits and a big Bowie knife)....sitting up there, wondering why no one is climbing up here to partake of this magnificent wisdom we are eager to share...to the deserving few.

I think they must be waiting for us to decend? After all, this is not the movies....they send their stunt double to climb the mountain, while they are snug on the movie set...
Waiting for said sage wisdom. (Smiley face.)!
