Watching my front porch steps collapse and my new $2500 refrigerator topple over into the front yard.

Just friggin' shoot me....

Yep, the delivery guys broke my front porch steps and dropped the new 'frig. Did I mention that they didn't speak a lick of English either?? Like NONE.....

Oh and I'm glad the stove didn't set the house on fire this morning. Fixed breakfast, turned it off, and went about my business. Was back in the kitchen a couple of hours later & the burner I'd used was still HOT. As in hot enough to sizzle & steam when I swiped it with a damp rag. Yes, it was turned off. Yes, I wiggled the controls a few times. Repeatedly. Finally it shut off & cooled down but now I don't trust it. But I can't afford a new stove on top of my medical bills, vet bills, and the da**ed dented 'frig!!!!!!!! (Heck I can't afford them either but don't have a whole lotta choice on them.)
Bad day
 
Was going to move hay but took a break from hay and got a 3/4 acre food plot finished. Buck forage oats and wheat. Hoping For a little rain now.
Down here in Calloway County my neighbor cattle farmers are just now baling their 2nd cut of the entire summer. It looks pitiful. They have probably cut every 3 weeks or so the past few years.

Fixed breakfast.

Ran to town to pick up a few groceries (and some red worms so we can go fishing tomorrow).

Shredded a bunch of zucchini & started 12 trays of it drying in the dehydrators.

Picked okra out in the garden. (Hey Barney, the onions are coming up like crazy! Woohoo!!!!!) (Looks like we'll be picking butternut squash this weekend. All but 2 of the vines have died & the squash are just laying there. Not the biggest but they look ripe.)

Pulled the last of the cucumbers plants since they'd stopped producing & were dying back.

Made a big batch of creole okra, corn & tomatoes. Jarred it up & started it in the canner. I know it's delicious - I'm just not sure how well it will can so I'm considering this a test batch. (Not sure the okra will stand up to canning at corn times....)

Drained the latest crock of icicle pickles, boiled the syrup again, and poured it back over them for another day. (Plan is to can them either Saturday afternoon or Sunday but this has to be done every day until then.)

Fixed lunch. Home canned chili with crackers & peanut butter. Yum!

Cleaned up the unholy mess from everything this morning. Zucchini goo could be used as a replacement for super glue. Just sayin'!

Started moving everything from the dorm frig's into the new frig. Including a laundry basket full that we'd stowed down in the basement frig. Will get everything else moved after dinner tonight. It's gonna be soooo nice to have it all in one place again!!!

Scanned some documents for hubby's work & sent them to him.

Watered the plants on the deck.

Opened up all the house windows.

And now I'm kicking back & taking a break for a bit.....

How could you possibly remember all that stuff you did? You had a big string of tasks accomplished a couple days ago.
Do you write it down?
I cant remember what I did 15 minutes ago....but oh yeah! I am watching the pressure on the pressure cooker...so I guess I am canning @barney Roma
green beans.
Maybe I won't walk off and Blow it up...

Honestly, I start most mornings by putting together a list of everything I need to get accomplished that day. And then, after I finish my big mug of hot tea, I hit the ground running!
