Made a run up to the dump yesterday, two bags and a bit of dead produce, once there a man and big machine were working and I couldn't get anywhere near to the pit for dumping the bags in, so left stuff neatly piled on the top near where his pickup was parked. So hopefully when he was finished with the digger he will spot and put it in the appropriate place. So very glad I went yesterday as today has broke out in serious rain. Weather forecast is for the nasty cold front to land on my valley for the next week or so, temps showing at -24°C (-12°F) for Monday night the polar vortex in the future. So when I changed my bed this morning (Sunday morning job) I flipped down comforter so more down would be over my tired ole bones, may even break out bed socks.
Seriously thinking about vegetable soup for today, still have squash, celery, carrots, potatoes, not much but better than nothing. Wish I had cabbage, kale and some spinach but that ain't gonna happen, so maybe will add some cannellini beans and macaroni and call it good.
Finished the 2nd black with reds & oranges sock last night, just the Kitchener st to close the toe and the last few ends to deal with and after 5 months they are done. With lots of good football games on the telly today will start winding Koigu into balls so I can get started on the lots of reds gloves for MG in AZ.
The rain is turning to snow. Making the soup sound even more inviting. And the soup was a success, my idea of minestrone, close anyway. Did end up using a 1 lb. pkg of extra lean ground beef, enuff left for another couple of night suppers.
