Today is our big day...the walmart pickup is between 12 and 1....and we are about an hour away....but to make it more like a crazy video game...we get to dodge the 60 mile per hour winds and rain...with predicted trees and wires down....and to make it a SUPER adventure......the entire trip is through the FOREST....where there is NO WIFI CONNECTION!!! 

In Michigan we have been instructed to have home grocery deliveries only if we are 60 or over........LOL

Well......there is NO SUCH THING HERE!   So off we go like Hansel and Gretel..through the forrest...LOL

I'm kind of excited to see what we actually get in this order....from what I hear...people are getting only about half of their orders.

Keeping that in mind......I ordered enough for about a month...hoping for 2 weeks worth.

Personally...I will just be happy if they give us some eggs anad bread.....I can deal with everything else.  Most likely they will give us everything but.....and in that case.....I will place an order at a totally different store in a different direction.....for as soon as I can.

We have a sanitizing process plan figured out........the longer I think of it....the easier it sounds........getting used to this whole crazy life I guess.

Back later with the shopping results.

Went and picked up the walmart order and it went beautifully......the people that deal with the pick up area are such a great group of young people...always friendly and cheerful and today was no exception.  Things went very smoothly...D drove because of the weather...saw a downed tree...and then when we got home...a couple of the next door neighbors trees are down too.  With D driving...it gave me a chance to read walmarts substitutions...there were only 5...and the subs were all acceptable....and we were not denied anything...so we got it all...I was very surprised and happy.  We loaded up on eggs, breads, meats, a few canned goods, cheese, cat litter and Diabetic supplies for D...and a few odds and ends...but no real sweets or anything like that....mainly things to make meals with.

The disinfecting went well......youngest son had called this morning..he had gone shopping too and said he uses a spray of water with regular clorox bleach.....and i decided to go with that too....we had a regular assembly line going and it only took about 20 minutes....things are now drying...and will be put away when I'm done writing here.  I did spray the mixture on a paper towel to apply it as did he.........the winds are tremendous...and we saw rain and snow on the trip........good day to stay inside.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/13/2020:
Good luck with picking up your order - stay safe! We have that same bad weather here today too.

Let us know what you receive in your order :)

bearcountrygg on 04/13/2020:
The weather is really bad.....no desire to go out there. Lots of meat, cheese, eggs, breads, kitty litter, canned goods, vinegar for cleaning....mainly things for meals....there were 5 substitutions and all were fine...so we were lucky.


Donkey on 04/14/2020:
I'm so glad your shopping adventure went so well! Yay!!!

You made a good point about what is really essential versus what is convenient, when you mentioned that bread and eggs were most important in your list. With our current status, my lists usually involve a couple or a few essentials and then things we like, we use, but we could probably do without.

I'm so excited about your shopping trip though! COOL!!!

bearcountrygg on 04/14/2020:
I was kind of happy myself......neither D not i need the sugary stuff right now...and neither of us seem to be very interested in it.......luckily we have plenty of frozen veg as well as canned....so we didn't get those...but it went great....

Happy Easter to everyone.

Drinking coffee and watching mass at the vatican and it brings back memories of my Grandmother and aunts taking my cousin Jill and I to mass as small children.....where they placed my Grandmothers doilies on our heads because ladies never enter the church without first covering their heads.(back in those days) It made a HUGE impact on my entire life and was a driving force in how I have chosen to live.  That was one of my first lessons in respect.

Today will be quiet........We aren't having any kind of traditional easter dinner...just using what is onhand and being thankful to have it.

Mainly just having a day of reflection and peacefulness........a quiet time to think and relax.

 

 

Horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2020:
In some Jewish religious places of worship,, women also cover their heads with doilies.

Happy Easter and enjoy the quiet. I am going to fully enjoy this peace and quiet today too.

bearcountrygg on 04/12/2020:
OOh I didn't know that...I had always thought the doilies were because they didn't have enough scarves. Interesting


Donkey on 04/12/2020:
Happy Easter to you as well!

Up as usual........and hanging in there..........life goes on and keeping hopeful that the world will eradicate this soon. 

We have plenty of "stuff" around here....but seeing things like eggs and bread running out....and I have been keeping an eye on the Walmart pickup availabilities....and was fortunate enough to grap a monday pick up time betwen noon and 1....so I grabbed it.....and placwed an order that will keep us covered for a good amount of time....of course we probably won't get everything on the order....but we will be happy with what we can get.  I debated rather to go ahead with it...and decided to do that.  I'm hoping that with what we have...we will be good........things like D's diabetic testing supplies and cat food and litter....are up there with eggs and bread.........so interesrted to see how this goes......there are some interesting vids out there showing how to disinfect food when you get it home........and  this will something new and different.

The printer arrived yesterday.....and it's living in the garage for a few days.....but it's here!!!

Our governor is losing it.........weird things...like using your own motor boat is now banned....you can use a kayak, canoe or sail boat though.......no golfing.....a guy on a bike ticketed.......no gardening supplies...but THE MICHIGAN LOTTERY......PAID FOR WITH CASH ONLY...IS STILL AVAILABLE!!!!!!!....I live in CRAZY TOWN!!!!

Breakfast was a cup of coffee.......tiny amt of hash browns letovers....from yesterday...and a small amy of summer sausage.

Feeling great and kind of losing interest in food.......pants aren't tight any more..it's  good thing that we don't have a lot of junk food around...I find it a lot easier when the main temptations are gone...( still some here but they don't call me as much and that's a good thing)....I had a cake mix that was sugar free...and baked it the other day....OMG....That was HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!   I blew up like a balloon..............didn't bother D at all!!!....But ended up throwing out the last half...he didn't want it...and I was not going anywhere near it!!!!..........I see there is a same brand...sf brownie mix here...that I will put a caution note on today........that stuff is ATOMIC!!!!!!!!!

Anyway..........plenty to do here...so need to get on with it.......

Lunch was roast beef, hash browns, mediteranian vegetables and a little leftover goulash

Added some sf lrmon tea mix in my water...i think I'm drinking less...and that seems to make me want to drink more.

Last food for the day will be sun flower seeds, peanuts and jerky...with a cup of coffee

Still doing odds and ends around here....but ready to relax for awhile.

 

 

Donkey on 04/11/2020:
Eggs seem to be difficult to come by in my local area. A lot of the time, it just depends on the luck of the draw. So I think you were wise to go ahead with your online Walmart order. I'm sure you already know this, but they do do the best that they can do to fill all of your requests.

Also around here, in my local area, the online Walmart orders can be difficult to get a time slot. They fill up quickly, apparently. I don't use this, but a lot of people around here, anyway, do try to use this. Especially folks in the retirement community, who are at higher risk.

That's so weird/scary about the sugar free cake! I've stepped away from the artificial sweeteners quite a bit from where I was last year. No more monkfruit or xylitol - I'd rather go unsweetened. No more Sweet N Low (I tell myself that it's a derivative of fertilizer or anti-freeze).

bearcountrygg on 04/11/2020:
I know that Walmart is working hard to stock their shelves nightly..........I have mentioned that my oldest son works in a large store....but haven't actually named it....but I will now......He does work for Walmart several hours from us......( he was a Detroit carpenter for 25 years until he had a health problem that stopped him from working in carpentry)....and for the last few he is in retail......and he loves it.....he has LOTS of stories to tell.....always good for a chuckle!


Donkey on 04/11/2020:
What an epic with the printer - it's a great story! And now it's here but it has to sit for a bit. I'm glad it did finally make it though.

bearcountrygg on 04/11/2020:
I am too......I had no idea how much we would miss it.....so...it hangs out in the garage for awhile...LOL...and i'm glad to be able to stop thinking about it.....now...HOPEFULLY IT WORKS LOL


Horn_of_plenty on 04/11/2020:
You know I’ve never heard of summer sausage!

What was the brand of sf cake mix ?

Interestingly, I have been drinking much less lately too!

Stay safe :-)

Soon or at least end of next week I need to pick up some things at supermarket - mostly veggies for my pets :)

bearcountrygg on 04/12/2020:
The sf cake and brownie mixes are from Pillsbury......Summer sausage is a shelf stable sausage log type thing that is sealed in plastic ( similar to salami...)...when you open the packaging you should refrigerate it.....it keeps well. We like it.


Donkey on 04/12/2020:
You know, I hadn't even considered the printer not working...

bearcountrygg on 04/13/2020:
Yup......Hopefully I get to that today....currently...it's still hanging out in the garage.

Things just going along here........strange doings on our road.........The scuttlebutt is that a pot growing facility is going in....down the road...and it will be HUGE....and it appears that is true......obviously they are still on the roads...........they are keeping it hidden....back on a large acreage parcel......within feet of a federal forrest...........life as we know it  is seriously changing...Huge tanker trucks, heavy equipment....construction trailers from other areas.....and trucks making 20 to 30 trips a day per truck....UGH

Our Governor Whitmer...has just banned stores from selling gardening supplies and lumber......no gardens in the back yard for Michiganders ........NICE..........UGH

There is more to this than a novel ( rogue) virus!

Just sayin................

And to top it all off.....Whitmer is one of Bidens picks for VP...LOL.......................................................

That's kind of how it was at my folks' house at the end, when they came in and started building the subdivision. Ugh -- and so sad. Humans ruin everything.

Did you know that all those environmental protections are, presently, being eradicated? Just unreal...

bearcountrygg on 04/10/2020:
The world as we know it is changing...sadly.


Horn_of_plenty on 04/10/2020:
Lol on the end part indeed ....

Wow this entry kept me reading in suspense all till the end, lots going on and too many changes. Of all things a pot facility :(

It's beginning to look like winter weather is leaving finally...no buds on trees...but we have had a couple of robins...and a couple of young deer are hanging around.

I stayed up last night until 11 and slept really well........the key for me...don't go to bed too early and then hope for sleep.

We have  a fridge full of leftovers...so today eating will be super easy.....no real cooking but just reheating.

As usual...I will just get working around here and do anything that needs to be done........there never seems to be a shortage of things to do.........

I realized today that in 6 days.....it will be a full month since I went out into the public....the desire is there...but when I weigh it against what coul be,........it's an easy decision....I am staying at home.........

Coffee so far......granola bar and 2 dried fruit bars and a bite of a chocolate and nut bar.

Heard from both both sons...always checking up on the oldies...LOL....they are fine.

Sat down to some extensive paperwork.....that took hours....ended up eating some jelly beans and animal crackers........some really junky eating going on for me....but at the same time...i'm getting into some foods that had been put away in the closet...last night and this morning I did run into some things that were rancid......tossed them out of course....that is the bad thing when storing anything with any oils in them....like bottled oil, nuts, grains, organic dry goods, cereals, bars etc.......I tossed some kashi bars, breakfast bars and pirates booty and a chocolate/nut type thing........some things the rancid smell is there...others...the taste...i'm sure I will run into more things...and will deal with those as they turn up....all were past their dates......I do believe in the future that I will not store these kinds of things as much....but there is plenty more here...so will deal with that then.

Just looked at the clock...no wonder I was hungry..it's already 1.......wow.

Called sister in law and chatted for awhile...she is a shut in, widowed and scared...had a nice chat......

Dinner was pork chop, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole and sf cake.....

Coffee in the evening

3 loads laundry done

 

Horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2020:
i also enjoy cooking for several days and then reheating :) it def uncomplicates things!

when you say not going out in public, i assume you did go out around your house though?

enjoy your coffee, as i write this i'm drinking some too!

bearcountrygg on 04/06/2020:
Yes...I've been out in the yard...just not around anyone else outside of D. I love leftover days...LOL


Donkey on 04/07/2020:
Although it's the next day, I'm enjoying a cup of coffee while reading this.

Hopefully the mud phase won't last too long as the grass and foliage fills in quickly!

bearcountrygg on 04/07/2020:
Always the coffee......there is something about coffee. I came to the coffee party kind of late....Now I wonder why I waited so long. : )


innerpeace on 04/08/2020:
We are supposedly forecasted to get a winter mix this weekend...go figure!

bearcountrygg on 04/08/2020:
I hope we don't get it...it's really looking like spring around here.

Had a light frost over nioght...and thankfully the snow is lmost gone.....then of course the mud starts....but that's okay.

We have a ton of dog food being delivered this morning so that will take awhile to get moved to the barn....but a relief to have over with........that along with what we already have will keep the hounds fed for about a year. 

In fact the dog food just arrived as I'm writing this.

Today  I had coffee and a hot granola type cereal cup for breakfast.....chuck roast in the oven, and green bean casserole going in the oven at about 11..........no potatoes...but.... I found a packet of instant mashed 3 cheese potatoes in the cupboard..there is also leftover broccoli in the fridge.  Leftovers will come in handy tomorrow..........

I'm doing another closet cleanout this morning......this just seems to be a catch all for anything......I do believe that we need to start using things up before we get new...one thing out...one thing in......wanting something just does not carry the same weight now.......needing something needs to be more important........this quarantine is pointing out to me and probably a lot of people...that the simple things in life are taken for granted...until we lose them....then they become all important......(Like TP).

Tonight will probably be leftovers....: )

Donkey on 04/05/2020:
I did a lot of cleaning today. NOT decluttering, like I really need to do, but I did all of the bathrooms and mopped the floors in the basement and main level. My daughter's bathroom floor was covered in dirty clothes, so I did her laundry.

All in all, I felt it was a productive day.

bearcountrygg on 04/06/2020:
Not going out unnecessarily does make working on home things a lot easier......you got a lot done!


Horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2020:
wow a whole year supply of dog food! sounds like it will take awhile to put away ! :)

just like you, i'm still wanting to clean more in my closets too. yesterday, i randomly took out around 10 more shirts to donate. and i still have more to clean/remove, for sure...also realizing i soon will need to do a bathroom cleaning LOL how i hate cleaning the bathroom!

bearcountrygg on 04/06/2020:
Yes...but the tractor was a huge help......I also HATE cleaning the bathrooms......and they need it again around here and I keep putting it off.

I woke up this morning thinking that to keep myself busy....maybe I would do food pics again today....possibly a quarantine diary.........I'm eating differently a bit......and I'm noticing that I'm leaning on the snack foods way too much again........I haven't shopped since March 12th for anything   (The metal storage cabinets that we had ordered a month ago...that never arrived..are now not going to be delivered...I cancelled the order so I can forget about it)....the printer according to amazon will be arriving sometime in mid to late may......whatever...the ink is here waiting for it)...other than D's regular meds...we are are expecting nothing.  We  are using whatever is on hand.....all across the board for the household ( had to buy tractor parts though because of a hydraulic leak)......so whatever was here before march 13th...is what we are using.......still good on all things...but that will change in the next couple of weeks...when I will be scraping and scrounging around for some things ( mainly perishables).

Day 21 of quarantine

I'm not having any problem staying busy...there are plenty of things to do that I rarely think about so it's a nice change of pace. 

Breakfast = coffee, cereal and a coconut beverage (milk substitute) = 136 calories

I need to remember to drive the car at least 30 minutes every 3 weeks...I DO NOT want a repeat of what kept happening with my Moms car....after she had to stop driving.....

I'm challenging myself to stay either in the house, or yard or in the car to keep the battery charged...for as long as possible........since we are in the danger zone as far as our ages and health....catching this virus would likely be too serious for us.  Thankfully we are pretty well stocked around here and this sort of thing is why we are. 

I also do not want to have to buy bigger clothes....they are gone....and I refuse to replace them.......I don't need to get on the scales to tell me that the stuff I've been eating though will make that necessary...so......back to counting calories to get myself back in line again.  I don't have any idea of what i weigh right now....but pants are a bit snug......so possibly 10 pounds up from the usual..maybe a little more.........so..need to take off a few again..and back in losing mode.

Keeping busy with.......moving some canned goods to the kitchen, taking things out of the freezer for dinner, washing 1 load of laundry a day now...because dryer is acting up....LOL...I can always hang 1 load up if necessary...but will use the dryer as long as I can.  Made bed, took bath, dressed, hair, make up., vacuumed.

Lunch was brown rice with quinoa, broccoli, 1 slice american cheese and tea

Forgot to take a pic of dinner........Hamburger helper lasagna and cauliflower....getting into the pantry foods that were stored  now.

 

 

 

 

Donkey on 04/03/2020:
Staying busy and mixing up the activities you are doing is great! Last weekend, I picked up an old knitting project. I can only knit for short sessions because my hands start to ache and also my attention wanders... but it was a nice change of pace for me!

You know you'll always have a captive audience here for your food pics!

Nice Lady and I were just talking about what a difference 10 pounds makes, how you really feel a difference (either direction).

bearcountrygg on 04/03/2020:
I hear you about the knitting...many years ago...I started a afghan...that actually uses 5 strands of(skeins) yarn at the same time....( I had never used more than one strand at a time before).....It's lets just say HEAFTY!!!!!!...LOL...I will admit...it moves along quickly...but man that thing is heavy...and I can't get motivated to work on it anymore....and all of the stuff fills a big plastic bin now...LOL The pics will not be very creative....just basics...LOl 10 pounds...really does...and according to an old WW leader...15 pounds is a size...and that was always true for me too....I like big shirts but I am so uncomfortable in baggy pants....well...my pants are now FAR from baggy...LOL...need to get on this!


Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2020:
Ummm the cereal and milk looks so good.... I may do Chex mix next like you did :) that is Chex I believe !!!!

bearcountrygg on 04/04/2020:
It's just like corn chex...although this was an off brand.

My guess is that everyone had trouble getting to this site yesterday......

Missed reading about everyones day.

I kind of got caught ....was able to get in.....and then after typing for awhile wasn't able to post it.....so I'm kind of afraid to write much now........back later...and see how this goes.

Snow is almost gone here now......

D had to break his quarantine yesterday....tractor spewing hydraulic fluid all over....and we have a ton of dog food getting delivered in the next few days...and the tractor is needed to move it to the barn...so....he went.....we agreed....replacement part was cheap...he would pay with cash and let them keep the change...and it worked well.....for a farm machinery store...they were on it...they had set up a table with hand sanitzer and paper towels.......still...he got to the truck...used sanitzer again...threw his clothes in the washer.......and that was about all he could do.  That business was doing it's best and we appreciated that.

People are heading up here and setting up squats on any vacant land they can find...Police and DNR are running them out....but they just locate somewhere else until they get caught again.........time to start issuing tickets I believe.  Our little gravel road has never seen so many police cars before.

As of this morning....our schools while they have been closed for awhile...will now be closed until the fall...with online schooling through the summer for those that can get the internet ( we do have many places in MI that are too remote for internet).......

Both sons had checked in on things here before 8 this morning....and are probably relieved that the old people are still able to function...( in some capacity at least...LOL.)

So far today.....the eating is quite disjointed...all very small quantities...I'll just list them here......

coffee, 1 pancake, tiny amt of smoked sausage, protein bar.............chicken salad, cauliflower, corn,scalloped potatoes 1 tiny kind bar, 3 tiny hershey minis and a glass of diet ginger ale.  Almost afraid to count those calories..........but clothes are still fitting...so that's a good sign.  I'm out of luck if they get too tight...LOL...and will just have to live with it.

Afternoon = 5 pretzels, broccoli, brown rice with quinoa, mini pkg mand m's , tea

Awake since 3 something...finally got up at 5.......coffee......catching up on the news..........

A sad commentary on people......tippee dam where people have always liked to fish...will have to be closed...because people just can't seem to follow directions...........

Today I will look around the house and find things to do......( things that need to be done, things that I enjoy doing, things that will keep me busy.)

Today I will NOT be part of the problem...I WILL be part of the solution!!!

The fact is...Tomorrow never comes...because it's always today.....so for today.........I will not put myself in danger, I will work to get along with everyone that I am in contact with........I will do my part to keep myself safe and to also keep others safe....I will be home..inside....doing what I am supposed to do.

So for today....I'm going to list every thing I do today...( except for TMI...ain't nobody want to write that or read it for that matter.)

1. Drinking coffee and watching the news

2.  Checking facebook and email, instagram and facebook.........and noting things I want to go back to later

3. Bath, hair, make up, dressed

4.  Gathered laundry and started washer

5.  Made bed

6.  Cleared the dining room table...for some reason it quickly becomes a  catch all.

7. Put everything on the table away...yeah...some in the trash.

8.  Put tablecloth in laundry

9. Checking cup of ink pens and pencils...looking for duds...and pencils that need to be sharpened

 

 

 

 

Donkey on 04/01/2020:
Not to be negative, but I hear you on a$$hats that don't follow rules. Just sayin'...

Ok, now you got me thinking! What make- up do you use? I follow Katherine Hepburn's routine: moisturizer, face powder, lipstick. However, sometimes I'll use just a lip balm, to keep lips neutral, and use a heavy eyeliner and mascara to play up the eyes, like Twiggy.

What kind of laundry detergent do you use? I like Purex because of the scent, but recently, I've switched to their gentle no- scent because it's easier on the skin. Also use generic liquid Downey. When my daughter worked for a vet, they used that for all their bedding and linens so I figure it's ok to use.

Do tell!

bearcountrygg on 04/02/2020:
Tried to post yesterday and wasn't able to......I'll keep this short....I'm not brand loyal at all....I do wear moisturizer, foundation, a loose powder, lipstick a little eye shadow and mascara.....laundry...I use whatever looks like a good deal...if things start getting dingy i go to Tide...but it's strong so I only use it when needed. i use dryer sheets...I got away from liquid fabric softener because it makes clothes more flammable....here we do burn limbs etc...at times so I don't use it for that reason.


innerpeace on 04/01/2020:
Thank you, thank you, thank you for staying safe. We have idiots running all over the place; like they're on vacation or something.

The videos I see on facebook and tv are heart wrenching, I think that drowning and suffocating have got to be the worst kind of dying. I would hate to suffer with COVID-19...worst nightmare ever.

Checking pens and pencils...love this. Who would even think about this as a task...genius.

Have a great day.

bearcountrygg on 04/02/2020:
That kept me busy for awhile...now I just need to find the pencil sharpener.

Woke up this morning with the alert that our small county which is mostly state and federal forrests...now has IT!  As funny as it may sound...our tiny town is the hub of the county....we have the grocery store, courthouse...etc.  So now it gets even more real here.  Our community is mainly retired and amish......basically we are a resort area because of the forrests, the amish stores and the ausable river...which becomes a very active tourist town every may to sept.......so this just a bit more serious around here....

Thinking about taking the truck and car for drives today....because both have been idle for 3 weeks....it's time to charge up the batteries with 30 minute drives each....to make sure they keep running.   Not getting out of the car...not even to top off the gas tank.......

Then back at home.......I will be doing some basic cleaning.

coffee so far

Took the car on a 40 minute drive....and loved it.  D is taking his truck out now...he loaded the hounds to give them a break too.......that was possibly the fastest 40 minutes in my life...LOL

Got back and had some leftover pasta with cheese and bagel seasoning on it....delish and the last can of pepsi zero.....and a couple of large cookies.

Washing all bedding including pillows, bedspread etc......plus anything else in the laundry room.

Paid a couple of bills and took them to the mailbox.

Going to sit down and enjoy the alone time now.    I do love my alone time.....LOL

Taking a drive is a good idea! Not only for the vehicles and their batteries, but also for you too. I hope you have good weather for this.

I'm a little jealous of the cleaning and purging you and Horn have been able to accomplish. You've both done quite well with that.

Weather was overcast...but it was a nice drive.......and really nice to get out.....I swear things keep multiplying around here like rabbits.....it's crazy!

Sounds like you are doing really well! It's nice to get outside for some fresh air and go for a drive every now and then. Have a safe week!

It was nice...after being at home for so long.....it should warm up here enough to get outside more...looking forward to it.


Horn_of_plenty on 03/31/2020:
yes good idea to drive those cars :) maybe you can both go toget in one vehicle?

OH MY...i must wash my bedding at some point...i've done pillows EVERY week but i haven't wash sheets in a couple weeks at least. i'll get there. it's not urgent!

I think we actually both enjoyed a little break...LOL I actually wash the pillows themselves...we have the MY PILLOWS that you may have seen on TV....they lend themselves to washing really well.
