Hi Donna!! Back from WhF already?

Cookie aisle still safely unguarded??

Hey, I'm fast! Cookie aisle completely safe. I have learned THAT lesson. I DID however, spend about half of my 20 minute shopping time staring at the place where the pumpkin tarts were supposed to be. :P

He's in Tagish, which is a community about an hour and a half north of Whitehorse. He's out in the bush, with about seventy sled dogs. Talk about rustic.....

Whoa it IS the Yukon!! That's practically synonymous w/ Alaska isn't it?

My brother Pat was an Alaska Parks Ranger, spending nearly every day out in purt'near wilderness.

And at every opportunity, he'd go to his remote cabin.

Once when I was there we used a 100+ yr old giant saw to cut ~6ft thick lake ice for his icehouse. The cutting's no picnic, but the lifting it out?? UGH!!

Covered in sawdust it lasts all summer. :o

The amazing old wood stove had a way to route water through it so you'd get an incredible hot shower in the middle of NOwhere!

Man, my mojo's slipping, as well...just got back from our Ottawa Senators vs. The Rangers. Uggghhhh, our boys stunk.

Bah!!! :angry:

Still, it's good to hear you're "oot" going to hoUckey games!!! :P:):lol:

. . .. I DID however, spend about half of my 20 minute shopping time staring at the place where the pumpkin tarts were supposed to be. :P

:lol: I've done that!! Not w/ pumpkin tarts but w/ SOMEthing!! :angry::blink::lol:

Oh DONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN-ahhhhhhhh? Has the Christmas in The Park choir schedule come out yet?

Heyyyyyyyyy .. . .. .haven't heard of you practicing w/ them lately . .. .. .what's the dealio? :huh:

Amanda--

I was at Giant today--there's one about 5 minutes from us. I think of you when I go there :)

Mine wasn't too crowded--I wonder how bad it's going to be tomorrow. My husband and son are going to a car club meeting about an hour north-west of here tomorrow afternoon.

The reason why I think of you is that you have mentioned Giant at times and I had never even heard of it--they don't have any over in Jersey. Now, it's the store I go to most, as the Wegmans is about 30-40 minutes away. There's also a Wegmans in Allentown that I need to check out--it may turn out to be closer than the other one.

Our Giant is very nice--we are told that it's pretty new, and it has an excellent natural foods section. I get my Pacific broth, Gluten Free Pantry mixes, Tinkyada, and several other things there.

I saw K-too's at the Giant the other day. It is a Carlisle PA, grocery chain which is why there are a million by me.

I think about you everytime I go to Wegmans. I think you and I got to be friends on here over a conversation about Wegmans, quite awhile ago...maybe over a year now (wow does time fly)

But either way, we got some nice ice coming tomorrow, how much are you guys expecting?

Allentown Wegmans is nice, we have been there a few times when we were passing through the area.

I remember :D Yes, this year has really flown by...

I just checked the weather channel--there's a winter weather advisory in the area from 4AM to 8PM tomorrow. They're calling for about an inch of snow, but it will turn to sleet, freezing rain and then rain before it's all over. Yuk!

Are you expecting the same?

much the same....but when they first talked about it, it said sleet in the morning only then rain. Now, they are saying sleet all day long. I can deal with snow, but ice is so dangerous, it reminds me of last year when all the interstates got closed with the ice storm. Not one of PA's proud moments.

I figure tomorrow will be a day of house cleaning and laundry. John wants to start decorating for Christmas.

Are you enjoying your new home?

Yes and no :lol:

It seems like it's taking forever to get settled in--there are things we want to do right away, so there are several projects going--and this time of year is so busy anyway.....I told Mark that we're getting too old for this :P

Have fun tomorow :D

Something silly:

My best friend's parents live about 2 minutes from me, and they have chickens (and goats, donkeys, horses, etc.) I get eggs from them every once in awhile... We are major egg eaters. They have a big group of young ones that are getting ready to start laying, and they'll be selling the eggs.

I was so excited, and I told hubby tonight that pretty soon I'll be able to get all our eggs from them- fresh local eggs, woohoo!

And hubby confessed... "Honey, I don't really do... natural... eggs." :huh:

I said, "What do you mean?"

And he said, "You know... they're weird, and brown, and... farmy. And... they have chicken butt cooties." :blink:

"Umm sweetie, you do know where the grocery store eggs come from, right?"

"Yeah I know, but that's different."

:huh: Chicken butt cooties! :lol:

(I'm still going to buy them for me and the kids, though!)

I used to get eggs from my grandparent's farm (they're free that way!!!) My college boyfriend didn't want to eat them - thought they would taste funny since they were brown. He asked me what color they were on the inside.

I took him out to my grandparents farm on one of my trips home. (He was a city boy - lived north of Chicago - perhaps you can relate, Tom). Anyways . . . my uncle and I take him for a walk (with a warning from Grandpa to stay out of the North pasture because he put the bull out there). At that point, my uncle was doing a lot of work on the farm including feeding/watering a lot of the animals. As we were walking (and talking) through one of the pastures, the cows started moseying over as they recognized my uncle and thought some grub was headed their way. In a panic, my boyfriend exclaimed "There's No Fence!!!" We both looked at him and said "What?" And he said "There's No Fence and They're headed Right At Us!!!" Uncle and I started laughing as those cows stampeded towards us at a snails pace. And then the (EX) boyfriend hid behind me!

Chicken Butt Cooties! :lol::lol::lol: Sarah, tell your husband to quit licking the outside of the eggs!

What? Like Homer Simpson - dribbling..staring into space...mumbling 'pumpkin tarts' like a mantra :lol:

DAMN!! Best keep him low for a bit - - No shopping for a while (I know he loves it but we gotta be careful !!!)

We really are freaks, you now.....for the rest of our lives, any yeti mention will remind us of our barking madness

*SNORT*

And hubby confessed... "Honey, I don't really do... natural... eggs." :huh:

OMG! OMG - Sarah!!! Why do hubby's say such stupid things!!!

My friend (who kept chickens in her suburban London garden :huh: ) used to give me half a dozen eggs a week in exchange for all my veg peelings (chickens ate them)

Terry (who insists on 'Free range' from the supermarket) refused to eat them - - wah -- wah !!! ''They have poo on them''

TSK!!! :rolleyes:

You can't get much more free range than wandering around the bloomin' garden!!!

Me + Kids loved them! - tasted much better than shop bought and the yolks were a much more vivid yellow for some reason.

...did I ever mention hubby is really funny about his food :rolleyes: ....don't get me started :angry: .....

Heyyyyyyyyy .. . .. .haven't heard of you practicing w/ them lately . .. .. .what's the dealio? :huh:

Nope, not practicing with the choir, but have started with the women's ensemble again. We sing today actually. Yes, our date has changed twice now, but I think we're at Christmas in the Park on the 19th. No solos! :P

What? Like Homer Simpson - dribbling..staring into space...mumbling 'pumpkin tarts' like a mantra :lol:

Hum...I don't think I've seen any of the Simpsons shows, but yeah, it sounds a lot like it!! :lol: If the case had glass I would have had my nose and hands pressed up agasint it. :P

So much to catch up on!!

Okay, first: What is Giant? We have Giant Tiger up here...not as big as Walmart, but the same idea.

On eggs: Have any of you eaten duck eggs? Incredible. I have never seen such yellow yolks...

We are under a big winter storm advisory...35 cm of snow coming (26 inches) and winds at 60 km/h (hmmmm....about 38mph). In like a lion, for sure!!

BIL is right on board with putting the yeti on his team. It's perfect: we want to keep him secluded, out of sight, and man, you're not gonna find ANYWHERE more secluded than the northern wilderness in mid-winter. BIL wants him soon, to start the training sessions, and of course, wouldn't you know he's asked for his measurements so that he can have a sled harness, and booties, made for him. More measuring......gad....

When he asked me about his personality, and where I thought he would be best placed on the line of fourteen dogs, I thought only for a split second, and yelled.....

Let the Yeti lead!!!

Emily-Giant is like a Safeway or Food Lion....normal sized grocery store. Nothing too fancy. Overall nice store. I am not a fan because in a 5 mile radius of my house I can tell you where at least 10 of them are. They are on every road in my area.
