Sunday drivin’

Before I tackled the pantry mess from yesterday, I took Cygnus for a little joyride. It has been a while since I’ve taken her anywhere but over to the Plum and back or down the I75 SUV Speedway.

I wasn’t really thinking too much about the timing but I like to get out fairly early before the traffic heats up although I head for the back (dirt) roads where there isn’t usually a lot of traffic and I can creep along. I ended up getting out just about when the Sunday morning jazz starts up on WEMU. I don’t know jack-doodly about jazz but I love the Sunday morning show because they play a lot of ancient jazz, often on vinyl (which I am also NOT a snob about). But it’s easy to listen to and kinda “slow” on a Sunday morning and I love it.

Wow! The sun and the light and the colors! This is typical late summer/early fall colors. The trees haven’t begun to turn yet so there’s a ton of greeeeeen with a golden sheen over the landscape in general. I was going slow enough to be able to stop and take pics but I do better at that when I am actually walking. I did get this one and didn’t notice the Waning Gibbous until HOURS after I took it and posted it to Insty.

And then. I slogged along ALL AFTERNOON picking away at resetting the Landfill Chitchen. I combined what duplicates I could. I dumped a few things that were long past their date. They were things that don’t require refrigeration so they were probably fine but they were open and I used that as an excuse to thin things out since we’re obviously not using them. I hate throwing food out but sometimes it feels good and at least I recycled the containers. I still have a Pandemic Stash but it’s more organized and some of the things in it are what’s left of the umpteen bazillion jars of capers (and other things) I bought in sixes from Amazon back in the beginning. Yes I do use capers, sometimes more frequently than others.

I did devise a potential system for keeping track of this stuff and it’s on my phone, which is my handiest device. I won’t divulge the details of that because who knows how long it’ll last. If it’s still going after say three months, maybe I’ll talk about it.

At the moment I am basking alone in an organized chitchen. I predict that’ll end abruptly tomorrow when the GG brings five containers of mustard home. And wilted lettuce🐽🐽🐽

    I need to go through mine and get rid of things from the kids’ stay which is now over a month ago. I doubt that I’ll ever use the tofu. I like it when Ashley prepares it but don’t know how to do so.
