It goes against my nature and training to spend any more money on the porch’s temporary floor, but I do have to concede that certain readers are right about one thing…
And while I do hope to replace the plywood with a proper 2X6 floor next year, there would be no meals missed if I spent $20 on a gallon of water sealer in the meantime.
A couple of people hit the tip jar recently, plus one of those care packages of water bottles came complete with an envelope of green paper, and that gave me the opportunity to stock up on some commodities. I do go through a lot of dollar store peanut butter and jelly here at the Secret Lair, and having moved the pantry into the Lair’s loft last October I did something dumb: I moved all the jars from the kitchen cabinet to the loft. And so I lost count of how much I was using, and this past week something unthinkable happened: I ran right out of strawberry jam, and damned near out of peanut butter!!!!!!!
I’ve never done that before.
So anyway, I hit the dollar store this morning during the regular Monday water run, and have begun the expensive process of stocking back up. Also they had some of the good flour, so I scored #25 of that. I’m nowhere near out of flour but I do go through it pretty steadily since I bake all my own bread.
Also refilled a glaucoma med, and renewed vital but precarious stocks of ammo and bourbon.
So that’s where your money goes, and
much grass (yeah, I wish) muchas gracias!
