Day: July 20, 2022

Wed. Jul. 20, 2022 – yep, still doing the same stuff

Hot and humid.  Possibly crazy hot, although it would be nice to get a break, I don’ t think we will.

I did some of my chores yesterday.   The whole “stop what you’re doing and get a child at 3pm” and then stay home to make sure they aren’t burning the house down thing really shortens my day in a way I’m not used to.

It’s life though.

Today, if I get out of the house early enough, I’ll head to one of my more distant pickups.   And one that isn’t distant but is the opposite of the direction I head most of the time.

I should hit the grocery store for veg and milk.   Anyone else having milk go bad long before it should?  I have thrown out 3 gallons in the last month, vs NONE in the last two years.  I’ve had the last inch in the jug go bad, especially because it gets warm quickly if it sits out, but I expect that.  I don’t expect unopened gallons to get chunky in the fridge.

I’m bidding on a few more of the small chest freezers.  I really only want to win one more, but I’d take two more if it happened that way.   It’s possible we’ll see chicken or beef, especially beef, have a serious price drop if producers cull their herds.  That would be temporary, obviously, but it would be a shame to not be able to take advantage if it does.   An extra freezer would help.

Look for opportunities to stack something particularly high.   There are always opportunities in times of change.
