The coffee is hot, come on over.

There is no school for the kids again today due to meetings all through the province. The strike in on hold while they get the information and vote on the government offer. I hope it is all settled by this weekend.

It would be nice to have stable prices on stuff. I am diving into online shopping. The prices are terrible. I xan see where what used to be a regular income used to be is not going as far as it used to go. I hope your school employees get what they need for their life, Sunny..

Good morning all.

Tina, Prices have seem to have doubled in the past year...on everything. I have to be double~extra careful with our budget now, there is plenty of items that have been taken off my grocery list. Extras are non existent these days. I hope you find what you are looking for at reasonable prices.

The school employees are fighting over pensions Tina...so far the bus drivers have refused the new deal offered as of today. We'll be driving kids to school on Monday...if there is even school, we are waiting on word about the custodians and teacher's assistants voting as well.

Yes prices are crazy. I am buying less and paying more. Online grocery shopping does cut out one thing though, Tina. Impulse buying. When I am out shopping and I see a good price on something that is shelf stable I add it to my cart. Not as easy to do online. You just go and look for what us on your list. So I am assuming that saves money. That or I am penny wise and dollar foolish.

I went to the local grocery today. I spent $100. I had like 6 things on my list. But of course as I said earlier I added things to my cart. However, I did also get a 6 pound baking hen. I have not seen one of those in years. I can taste the soup already !!!

Health Canada has just approved Pfizer for kids aged 6 to 11 here, vaccinations will start in two weeks....it is a good start.

Junie, I haven't seen baking hens in years. Whole chickens cost $4 a pound here on sale, they'd never be able to sell a 6 pounder here. Enjoy the soup.

Today is a baking day.

I saw where Cindy was online in the gardeners chat. Guess she didn't make it to here.

Colt is here and we picked up Aubry and went to the Marshville Christmas parade. It was a great parade but Santa didn't show up. frown

Have fun with the grands Junie. GB called me earlier this morning. He keeps adding things to his wish list for Christmas...the funny thing is that it is all dollar store type items but he always asks if I still have any Christmas money left. lol

Of course the weather did not cooperate. It seems to be the way. I hope Mother Nature gets her act together for you.

I got up a while ago and so here I am.

We finally got some much needed rain today but thankfully it was in the 50's so no freeze for us.

I started putting up a few Christmas decorations last night and got so depressed I went to bed and left Colt awake and up. I might try it again tomorrow.

Bestofour, I can't imagine your sorrow. I am glad that Colt is with you....I do hope you plan to be surrounded by family this holiday. kissie

I went to the appointment yesterday, the roads were good until I was about 15 minutes away from my destination. It was colder there and they had a skating rink for roads.

So far no plans for Thanksgiving proper (Thursday) There will be a Dudley Thanksgiving on Saturday. This year there will be Chicken and tortellini ordered in, and salad and bread. Then a few of us will bring in desserts.I

I think I may go get batteries for my watches today.

Yes, they most surely are yummy. They are made with a butter garlic sauce. I cannot wait !!

I wish you the good luck that makes it possible for you to get your shopping done.

I may make myself a list, them go one day next week. Then I could concentrate on cookie and fudge making...then wrapping...

I only have my mother's shopping left to do. Mind you, I only buy for a handful of people these days.

I am waiting for the vets office to call to give me the 'go ahead' for the pick up time.

Don't forget to set you scales back a few pounds so you don't gain too much weight today.

Junie, I am so glad that you got to go to a family Supper....and that it was delicious as well.

My youngest SIL left at 5 a.m. to go Black Friday shopping, I'd be terrified of crowds in a normal year let alone with Covid.

I am cooking up filling to make my egg rolls and such. GG and I will assemble and cook them tomorrow. Holiday cooking (and holiday weight gain) has officially begun. lol

Good Morning. coffee

I hear there is a new Covid varient. But doesn't the flu do this every year ?

No black friday shopping for me. The crowds do not bother me, but the heavy traffic with crazy drivers sure does.

Yea, I should decide what baking I am doing as well.

Yup, the news states the variant appeared in South Africa but they also found it in a person in Belgium who just arrived home from Egypt. I'm not sure of the whole truth but apparently we can kiss any immunity away from the vaccines we already have received.
