I almost feel guilty because in the morning, I turn the electric radiator on for a few minutes and in the afternoon, I turn the fan on for a couple of hours. Sleeping
is perfect with a very cool breeze and I love the idea of having the windows opened. But I am an early risers and it is cold when I get up. Once I close the windows and turn on the radiator, there is a perfect balance of smelling
the fresh air and not being cold. Dixie is still under the covers, her ears at attention ,in case I open the fridge. She has a couple of hours of sleep time before she even thinks about starting her day.
I have a life time supply of dried beans, thanks to my DiL.She gave me several lbs and every now and then I cook some and use them. This time, I decided to cook at least 6 cups of dried beans. By the time they were cooked, my crock pot was filled to the cover.
I feel very efficient.And we all like beans. I won't have to cook beans for a few months. My pickles are pickling. I tasted the brine today and it was really good. Only my son knows where I hid them, so they are safe for a few more days. I will make another
batch this weekend if I can get another gallon jug. The word is out. The hunt is on. For Bubbies pickles.
