Groceries On Demand

While pondering what I might give my brother for the holidays this year, I looked up and and saw an open tab for Roasted Hazelnut Butter. A definite omen, my first purchase, oh my. I was reminded of the days when as a very young wife I could call up Payton's Market and order my groceries and they would bring them to my door. That seems to be coming round again, though I liked it better first time round.

The turkeys in the window are dancing their butts off today, inspired by the lovely day no doubt. I went out and found the kale to be in great shape and cut some for some soup. The herbs are looking good too and I loved being able to cut some fresh thyme. Realizing just now that I didn't look at the spinach and chard under the plastic in the raised bed. Perhaps the husband will do that.

He's totally in my good graces at the moment having given me 4 stainless steel ice trays for my birthday which isn't even here yet. I've wanted those trays for a long time, love them! And, I think he ordered me a new tablet as mine is having charging issues. I would have just put up with it, but he is always buying new electronic devices for both of us. He spends a lot of time on his desktop, but today he's out blowing the leaves into piles for later pickup and inclusion in his gardening process.

I made an apple pie this morning. Not for us though, for some doctor where my youngest works; and I'm not even certain if it's a bday thing or what, but it's made and checked off my list. I also managed to get all the houseplants watered. Yeah me!

Yesterday I walked. Today my back hurts. Hmmm.. Not walking today, glad to be finished with all tasks that require me to remain upright.

Today among available networks I saw a DEA Drone listed. Interesting. I can only hope they are becoming interested in what might be a meth lab in the hollow. Still, I don't like it that they are spying on us from the sky. If they're watching or listening to me, they are pretty bored.

Time for relaxation, another episode of Brideshead..., a bath, who knows. I started a new book, another in the Ian Rutledge series by Charles Todd, set in the same time frame as Woolf and Waugh write about and lived in, but by no means is it literature.

May peace find you today and every day...

I dunno E, maybe your drone is just delivering your neighbors' "Groceries on Demand," like Amazon and UPS are supposed to start doing.

But I'd still trade our MQ-9 Reapers, which fly out of here daily, for your DEA ones. Because unless the DEA has really stepped up their game, they're not carrying Hellfire missiles, lol.

BTW, the pie looks AMAZING! And I can smell it from here! Must be the wind is just right.

I am, of course, envious of your already-productive day AND your stainless ice trays. Stainless is definitely the way to go in kitchenware, even though a bit pricy.

On the book front, we had our meeting at the LPL a week early, due to Thanksgiving.

I was trying to get J.D. Vance's "Hillbilly Elegy" reread for it, and fell way short, and then meeting was temporarily hijacked by this hot-shot local writer who passed out a 3-page essay detailing why our selection was crap and a similarly-themed favorite of his was better. Oh, brother!

I'm gonna finish the reread on my own because it's a pretty good book and because I paid good money to get my own copy, lol.

Hope everyone is well and that y'all have a good night. Just don't venture too near that "holler," lol...L

Haha, they don't call me "Lois the Pie Queen" for nothing ya know. Lol

I'm pretty sure the neighbors have renamed their router DEA Drone, actually a bit clever for folks of dubious intelligence.

In spite of early advice not to fear "The Reaper," I'm glad there aren't any in the skies above. Am I paranoid? Without a doubt.

The book club scene does not seem to be unfolding in a wondrous way, I hope it gets better. Do you know what's next on the list?

I seem to be stuck in a time warp unable to leave post WWI Britain behind. I'd probably enjoy "Hillbilly Elegy" if only because my mother's family came from Appalachia and were true hillbillies.

I stay behind my fence and never get near the holler, especially at night. Times come when I hear them and shudder.

We're all good here, hope y'all are too.
