Southern Peach Cobbler Ice Cream

I should not even go down the ice cream aisle at the grocery store.

Ice Cream

Ice Cream

This stuff is so good! 

Believe it or not, it’s been months since I bought ice cream but when I saw this one, I had to try it and it was so worth it but once it’s gone, I’m going to try really hard not to buy ice cream for a while. Why does Blue Bell have to have such good ice cream and so many yummy flavors?

It’s funny at the Walmarts in MO . . they only have 4 or 5 flavors of Blue Bell. Here, there’s probably at least 2 dozen flavors and I want them all!  :(

Potting Soil

Sometimes, buying bargains can pay off but buying ultra inexpensive potting soil . . don’t do it. My hope is that Vince bought one bag and not his usual “more because it’s cheap”.  As I began starting my seeds, I noticed rocks and huge chunks of bark and something that closely resembles sunflower seeds. Hmm . . I can pick out rocks and big pieces of bark but I can’t pick out all the seeds.

Seedlings

Seedlings

These big things are not tomatoes! Some of them still have the seeds attached to their little heads as they pop through and my guess is still that they’re sunflowers. I will plant them and see what I get and I will buy my own potting soil from now on and not ask Vince to pick it up for me!

Ice and Internet

It looks like there’s an almost certainty that we’re going to get ice beginning late tonight and then it won’t get above freezing til Tuesday evening. I was thinking . . we could lose power and then we’ll lose the internet, which means no home or cell phones and no TV, Netflix or anything but . . I just realized that as soon as the internet antenna gets a bit of ice coating on  it, we’re going to lose the internet, even if we still have power. The antenna stands way up above the top of the roofline and that is not a priority . . we’re not climbing up there to get the ice off it! I’ll finish up some blog posts and have them scheduled so we don’t miss Design Wall Monday and all the other important worthless chatter from Patchwork Times. I will not be able to answer emails or respond to comments so don’t worry about me. We’ll be fine and it’s going to be less than 48 hours (I hope).

Even if we lose power, we’re fine. We have plenty of food, plenty of firewood. Kindles, iPads (for my Knit Companion) are charged. We have puzzles, candles, flashlights, oil lanterns. We have a full propane tank. The generators are loaded and ready to keep the freezers and the well pump going as needed. My biggest concern is that friends will hear about our ice on the news, try to contact us and not be able to get us by email, cell phone or home phone and then they’ll worry so .. don’t worry. We’ll be fine.

And, this goes for any time there’s a disaster or disturbance in our area. You never have to worry about us . . we’ll be treating it like an adventure and having fun!
