And there were potatoes and onions.....
Good evening folks, how are you enjoying your Saturday night?
I am currently sitting in bed, under my nice warm comforter, watching some vlogs on the Roku and typing up this post.
Saturday.....so what did I do today?
First I have to tell you that the snow is finally all gone, save for what is left on the mountains. I'm fine with that because honestly it was just ice at this point and making everything so difficult.
We woke up this morning to no Wifi. I love technology but sometimes I feel it is such a pain in the behind, especially if it decides to conk out. We sat on the phone, or rather my husband sat on the phone with the techs for a while to try and get it all back up and running again.
It's fine now, obviously or I wouldn't be here right? Haha
Once that was taken care of, Curt had to head to work so he dropped me off at my sister in law's, as we had to head to Walmart for some Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner shopping.
It's always a treat when we get to go just the two of us, we catch up, we laugh, we ogle and ooohhhh and ahhhhh all the cute things we see and take our time without having to worry about kids or husbands.
By the time she dropped me back off at home, my hubby was just arriving himself. We came in the house and then realized that he had forgotten to get firewood, so we headed back out again.
We got the firewood we needed and then on the way back home we saw a farmer selling potatoes and onions on the side of the road.
50 pound bags for $10. I mean, can you believe that? That is a steal!
Picked up one bag of red potatoes and one of the onions. Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow. Yes, freezing pounds and pounds of potatoes for future meals.
Fries, hashbrowns, mashed potatoes, twice backed potatoes. I'll also pickle some onions and freeze some as well. Busy busy day I'm thinking.
I'm running a little late this year on my Fruit Cake. Usually by this time I have it made already, but time has just gotten away from me.
Not a problem, I actually got my Fruit Cake baked today and it has received it's very first rum dose. I'll keep it stored tightly wrapped and every few days I'll give it a little more booze.
It smells SO amazing, I want to dig in already.
Hubby and I also made it to the storage to put away the Halloween Decorations and grab our Christmas ones. I am dying to start putting things up, but I've been good.
Problem is, now I have everything at hand and I don't think I'll make it past tomorrow without at least my Village going up. Oh goodness.
We've spent the rest of the day watching movies and enjoying the fire.
Christmas with the Kranks....have you watched that one? We watch it every year, along with a few other favorite Christmas movies. We also watched Free Birds which is the animated one about the Turkeys trying to save Thanksgiving. It was really cute.
And I've also been messing with my yarns and trying to figure out what I'm doing with some of them. Planning, thinking, finding patterns etc.
So yeah, that is what my Saturday was all about. I think I may just watch a girly flick on Netflix tonight, I feel like something cute so I'm thinking either Scents and Sensibility or The Real Jane Austen Documentary?
Ugh, decisions, decisions!
Either way, I better get out of here if I'm going to watch anything before falling asleep, and with this rain coming down outside I may just conk out within the first 30 minutes.
