Granny plays catch up.

Hello All.

Almost missed today.
Damn power outages.
I wasn’t going to mention them.
And, now I have.

I decided to use the outages as a time to catch up.
And, I did.
I watered my plants.
Am sure they were happy.
Planted some spinach.
And counted all the bulbs coming up.
There are six.
Have no idea what they are.
If I remember, will post pics.

I also caught up on my filing.
That should bring some rain.
Well, to be honest, not ALL of my filing.
But, most of it.
I feel quite good.
Tomorrow, finish filing and clean the bathroom.
Damn, I hope I over sleep.

Also on the agenda, is to make another pot of soup.
It is the one thing the old man really likes.

Today was quite productive.
Did my tax.
It was not as much as I was expecting so I paid straight away.
Then did my Dad’s tax,
Nice big rebate coming to him.
Phoned to give him the good news.
He is convinced they will catch up to him some day and want money back.
At his age, they are going to have a great time finding him.

We now have TWO cases of monkey pox in the country.
The old guy thinks he might have it.
It is a good thing I love him.


  1. My dad also loves soup. I think its easier to absorb, to not have to chew 😬 well done on all the taxes done… you were productive! Goodness me

  2. It’s so good you’re finding ways to make the most of the time you have those blooming power outages, Granny. I’m not sure I’d be quite so industrious in that situation. You’re very good about watering your garden plants. I just have grass in mine, mainly due to the fact that I can’t reach the ground to tend to them. I make do with two houseplants, both of which are struggling – one has got far too big for its pot and the other, is called, ‘Mind your own business’ – (it must have a biological name but I haven’t got a clue what it is), It’s going berserk and goes on strike when I forget to water it (which is frequently!),

    Did you make the soup?

    If it comforts you at all, the UK currently has 1,706 people with Monkeypox! I didn’t know that till I looked it up, and now I wish I hadn’t! Thanks, Granny πŸ˜‚. Xxx πŸ’•πŸŒžπŸ’ž

  3. Sounds like you had a great day, I need to do my taxes πŸ™„

  4. You do keep really busy. I wonder if there will ever come a day when power outages will cease to happen and just be a bad memory. I bet your soup is tasty. πŸ˜‹

    • The soup was lovely but I am glad it is finished.
      Have had it for three nights.
      Now M wants baked bean fritters for supper!!!
      Have never heard of them.

      • Me neither. πŸ˜‚

      • I just looked on Google and there are many recipes. They don’t look half bad either. πŸ˜‹

      • Hi Ad. I should have googled them too. They weren’t too bad. Two of them collapsed and ended up lots of crispy pieces. M enjoyed them but I can’t eat too much fatty stuff. He will be snacking on them all day.

      • πŸ˜…
