I'm Running Behind

   Thanks to my dehydrator dying, I'm running behind on things. Luckily, last Sunday Any and Daniel found a brand new, in the box dehydrator at a yard sale for $10.00 and bought it for me. Today's project is to start dehydrating again. Since the weather is getting colder, we need to harvest the last of the garden.
   We have had rain the last few days, so hopefully, the ground is soft enough to put our snow gauge out. I also need to bring in the hummingbird feeders, since the hummingbirds haven't been around lately.
   Besides the dehydrator, the vacuum cleaner bit the dust. I am waiting for my bread maker to follow. It is so noisy. I only use it to make the dough in and then I put the dough in pans because I like the bread cooked in the oven better. I do know how to make bread in my mixer, just putting everything in the bread maker is easier.
   Our TV picture is getting darker and there is no way to adjust it. If the TV goes out, we will be doing without. I will admit, I will get more done with no TV.
   The animals are getting ready for winter. Tim has a large toolbox with drawers and there are nice piles of pine nuts in every drawer. Our squirrel has been busy.
   Poor Jake is having a rough time. Michaela throws toys at him when she is in her playpen. Her aim has greatly improved and she is throwing  harder as well. His feet are always good to try and get, too when she's crawling around. Unfortunately,Jake doesn't like his feet messed with.
   Well, I took a writing break and played in onions. I chopped onions for 2 hours and put them in the freezer. My eyes poured, then my nose. Later everyone else's eyes poured. Just wait until I dehydrate onions.
   Other than all this excitement, it's been pretty slow. My leg has been hurting a lot lately, so I've been taking it easy. Besides that, Chip thinks it's my job to sit with my feet up so he can lay on them.
