2020. I’m so done with this year. I gave my cat a chunk of cheddar, since I didn’t have a mouse for him, and his uncanny self set it behind the fridge, and then kept checking to see if it baited any mice out. Ummm, my cat might have been human in a previous life and hasn’t quite forgotten all the higher brain functions like reasoning! If I had known he wouldn’t just eat it, I’d have filmed it. Then just now I caught the little female pup that likes hubby so much trying to climb his leg like a bear cub. No, no bears here, if we had them, I’d think her daddy might be part bear.
My last night at work! I’m sore, coming down with bronchitis, ( I know the symptoms, I get it almost every winter, and can taste and smell) so I’ll be happy walking out. But we are expecting ice and snow.

I’ve got two days off, then I work two shifts, and leave the last morning for the last time as an employee there. So eager to be done. I’m counting down! They still haven’t got someone to do half the stuff I did regularly. And I refuse to continue hurting my health for that job. It feels so good to be able to sit down once I get home, hurting from my feet up to my neck, with extra pain in the knees and lower back.
my knee and lower back hurt every day. sometimes it was all i could do to make it thru work then it took all night to recover. it also sounds like you work 12 hour night shifts, witch sucks hard. i avoided all 12 hr shift jobs due to that. 12 hours on your feet is too long.

Well, I should be cleaning and unpacking (new apartment), but I just spend the better part of the last hour arguing with strangers on the internet about refrigerating condiments.... :D
I said it before i'll say it again. If i had one wish it would be to wipe out social media and go back to the days of hard lines and Gatherings with friends and family.

Well once you’re done there, you should come visit us! I’ve got a nice long list of things needing done here!!! And I’ll pay you in puppies!
I just got back inside. Coyotes are hungry, and I had to bring two of the almost-adults in to treat wounds. Purple wound koat and superglue, cleaned one bite wound to the abdominal muscles with peroxide, went out to check the others, got mobbed by my cats, had to pet them, then when tossing bird seed out to the cardinals, got mobbed by the porch pups. Every one wants hi-moms attention. And my crud has just set up camp in my sinuses, right behind my eye. I can still taste and smell, much to my delight as I ate a bowl of chicken and rice soup earlier. I loaded my portion with garlic and onions as the guys don’t like onions. I’m disappointed how weak the garlic flavor was, I used several cloves, crushed then sliced, then sautéed with celery and onions. But it was tasty and filling.

Would love to work outside today; it is going to be beautiful. Instead we are scheduled to do "tastings" outside of The Artisan Exchange (one of our customers) in Milford, PA at the town's semi-annual Toast to Milford. Milford is a quaint, scenic town on the Delaware River in Northeast, PA.

Another evening spent on Farming Simulator. :LOL:

Did some logging. I haven't made nearly enough to buy any logging equipment yet, so I've been using my chainsaw and my tractor.

I also finally saved up enough to buy a new harvester. There were a few that I was interested in but had to go with the Case. Hard to choose against my hometown brand.

Helping hubby with his new ride, 2021 Honda Civic. Some of the options on this car are beyond my vehicle and some I didn't even know existed. I had posted Monday but forgot to hit Post Reply- again. He left work Sunday night and as always called to let me know he was on the way home. I heard a strange noise on his phone and it went silent. 20 minutes of panic to find out the noise was his car being totalled! He escaped with a few cuts and bruises, the car that hit him from behind never even stopped. Monday was filled with phone calls to police, insurance company, his work. Then off to clean out vehicle and go get a new vehicle. 2021 not starting out good!

Wow so happy he is ok! How could that car that hit him even drive after that hit.

The new cars are unreal with some of the safety tech etc. I was very happy with my 06 prius until I upgraded to a new car, still love my prius, but the new car is so much safer to drive.

@mrsclem Sorry to hear about your hubby's crash and how awful the person left the scene. Prolly a drunk! Glad to hear he will be fine. Hope he loves his new car!
