I don't remember how many straight days of rain we've had, but it looks like it will continue for at least the next 10 days! I can't complain, though, as the rain should greatly ease the worst of the drought conditions. The best part is that the Sierra will be getting lots of snow, so those who love to ski and snowboard can enjoy the snow in the mountains. Then we get the benefit in the spring of the snowmelt. This is what we've been praying for, so I am happy even though I've grown to detest the sound of rain on a metal roof!
I'm not happy with my email programs - gmail and/or aol. My computer comes with Mail but I never really cared much for it, but last night decided to try it. I can write and read emails in the program, and I set it to pick up my aol mail as I'm totally disgusted with that email service. For some reason I lost everything in my aol inbox, but while in Mail I noticed it was picking up every single piece of mail in every aol folder. I'm not sure what is happening, and maybe I should just go back to what I know. I'm calling a moratorium on computer usage today until I can figure what I want - stay with a program I know or switch to something that is easy to use but pretty much an uknown to me.
I shopped at Costco yesterday and managed to bypass the danish rolls. It's difficult to get most of the sugar and carbs out of my diet, but I weighed in at the gym last night and am holding onto 130#.
I'm off to the library this morning to return a stack of books and to pick up another stack! I also want to access Ancestry.com on the library's computer and do a little genealogical research. Then I'm headed to Bel Air and some grocery shopping. I read somewhere that you can buy bags of fresh cranberries while they are available and store them in the freezer for use throughout the year. I had half a bag of cranberries left and made a small amount of sauce yesterday - WOW! I found my cinnamon and that with fresh grated nutmeg really added to the flavor. I went light on the spices though, so they wouldn't overpower the cranberry sauce. I had some with pork chops for dinner last night, and found the sauce is every bit as good with pork as it is with turkey!
I hate to drive in the rain, but I won't accomplish much if I stay home, so I'm off!
Tires, Windshield Wipers!
