Sorry about the 2 days late.

We have had company T & T  and the 3 children. They didnt have school the past few days and they came up here.
Dave and son T are headed to Virginia as of an hour ago to go get their stuff out of the storage unit in VA and pick up their car and haul it back.
We have a 8 by 16 foot trailer they will put on the trailer and pack their things in and around it.

The rest of the family will be up here until Sunday night then they will head back tot he valley where they are staying with son Seth. With school here on Monday.

We had a high of 40 degrees yesterday with ice on the truck and my hops in the morning :(.
It is 42 deg. right now but at least we recieved some rain the last couple of days. YEAAAAAA 


  1. I have heard that about Peanut Butter from several sources. I am all stocked up on it; but went and bought some more and saw it was already going up in price here: was up by about 50 cents a jar. NONE were on sale and there use to be always at least one brand on sale. So hopefully will be set, depends on if I donate some to the Grands! lol!

  2. Thank you for posting Kellie about what you have found price wise at the store on peanut butter. The feed back is really welcome.

  3. What a busy week! I might not have posted anything tat all if I was you. Home Canned Velveeta! Now that is the best idea ever. I love your lists and that raisin pie has me really intrigued! A note on the PB - Planters just came out with a peanut butter - and it has been on sale around here for 99cents-1.49 in various stores! I haven't tried it yet - but PB is good to me no matter what the blend.

  4. Wonderful on the PB maybe we will get the new brand here sometime next year lol.
