Finished Pecans

We finally finished shelling the pecans. Mostly they are paper shells and cracked so it goes faster than  cracking them ourselves. I weighed them so each bag is one pound. It’s good to be finished. And it’s good to have a good supply in the freezer. It’s possible to buy them shelled, but three pounds shelled cost $34.00. We’d rather buy them cracked and shell them ourselves.

The ceiling fan and light fixture is installed so we aren’t using battery lights and candles. The fireplace seems to be working. So far, everything seems to be working with nothing on the to be repaired list.

Larry wanted to eat breakfast out this morning. We went to a place we go to and like. But today it took forever. In fact, it took so long, I changed my order. I liked mine but Larry said everything he got was over cooked. He only ate half and actually complained. I’ve never heard him complain even when he wasn’t happy with a meal. So eating out was a disappointment.

That Stinks

Today we had the joy of hearing that the place we bought our gas fireplace won’t service it because we don’t buy gas from them. We found a place that sent a service man out twice but the fireplace didn’t cut off.  But while he was working on the fireplace, the overhead lights burned something so the lights went out and it still smells awful. So tomorrow we need to get another light/fan and try again with the service man.

Today I went back to yoga class after being out a week and a half. It is a little hard to start back. It isn’t very difficult, but I’m not wild about exercise of any type. So I was happy I went.

We bought some cracked pecans and have been shelling them for a few days. The first day I damaged both thumbs. The next two days I’ve put tape on my thumbs. The right thumb gets two layers of tape. It is saving my skin which is still tender from the first unprotected day. But we’ll have lots of pecans for the freezer.

Medication Cost

Last month I bought a medication for $13.30 for a month’s supply. Today I bought a three months’ supply of the same medication for $12.00 at Walmart.
