So far still so good. Lets hope it stays that way. Here is a picture I found online of when Hwy 99 flooded the other day. This is about 45 minutes up the freeway from us. Pretty much shows if the levee breaks your toast. Looks like most of that was farm land so that is good. Better than homes!
I made it to the grocery store yesterday and got all my menu items for the week. I made soup for dinner last night. Turkey Chili Taco Soup . Just for fun I figured out how much it cost to make it. $10.70. I had a few things already that I didn't add in (onion, generic Rotel, and tomato sauce). If you didn't have a Trevor with you you would have several meals. We had dinner and lunch lol.
Sadly I killed the garlic bread. Trevor didn't mind.
Finally took pictures of my little heart banners I have done. Put them on FB and sold 3 ($15 each) so not too bad. I still have a big basket of hearts to put onto banners lol. They have been fun to make.
I'm addicted to making pom poms now. I went and got 3 more things of yarn yesterday. Dark red, then 2 variegated ones. It is fun to mix the colors of the yarn together too.
Worked on some spreadsheets for work today. Figured I should maybe work on those a bit since I had abandoned them lol. Next week we are supposed to be in Monterey for our area meeting. Tuesday and Wednesday. Hopefully Monterey and the roads to get there are not under water. Although I'd be fine with not going and being exposed to more germs. I had a staff meeting with one of the offices today and the guy was just like you will be exposed so wear a mask if you care. Sigh. Lovely.
My friend Cassi's mom just got out of the hospital yesterday after 5 days there. She was having low oxygen. I think she might have ended up having pneumonia. Negative for all the testable viruses. Just sick. She said she is doing much better now.
Well guess I'll do a little bit more spreadsheet. I really want to take the Christmas tree down but I'd prefer to do it when Trevor is not sitting in the living room. His job is over now so that time is less and less.
Rusty is crying to go out, why do we have so many animals? I am not going to be in a hurry to replace them when their batteries wear out. So much work with 6 of them in the house.
