It has been a very busy couple of weeks for me. I work 12 hour shifts and rotate back and forth between days and nights. Last week I worked Monday thru Thursday. I came home Thursday night and packed. We left Friday morning in our Sand Rails and drove over 500 miles this weekend.
We had a ball. We visited the six distilleries on The Bourbon Trail in Kentucky. We had no major mishaps - other than the spatzy that ended up splattered in my lap. I lost a shirt from that. We got caught in the rain about 25 miles from home. We waited it out in a bank drive thru but then got soaked driving home because of how wet the roads were. We looked like drowned rats but we were glad to see rain here.
I discovered that I don't like the cheap stuff but am fine with the small batches. No point in spending money on the pricey single barrel for me.
I was supposed to be off on Monday but since we were back I called my manager and said I could come in for a while - that ended up being 11 hours! Worked another 10 yesterday and have to work 12 on Fri and Sat. So, I am home today and tomorrow. Thank God. I was about at the end of my rope and was out of leftovers in the freeezer.
Today I am cooking so that I can sew tomorrow. A friend brought me two and half gallons of blackberries last night. This morning I cleaned all of last years out of the freezer and am making jelly with them. I also picked a big mess of green beans this morning. I cleaned and snapped those and put them in the crockpot with ham and onions for tomorrow. I am in the process of making a big batch of potato salad and a lasagna. Lasagna is for Saturday. Potato salad is for tonight and tomorrow night.
Still going to make a pie or cobbler and freeze the rest of the berries. I do have them all cleaned.
What I want most is a nap. I have to get to the sewing room and to the store in the next few hours. Wish me luck!
