  1. Secondhand Shopping
    Today was garbage day and I drove around a few streets to see if there were any "goods" people were throwing away. I did this in my parents' old "ritzy" neighbourhood (from when I was a kid). Someone had a good-looking Evenflo front-facing carseat (with the expiry of December 2013) at the side...

  3. General Chat
    I was called in to work early on Friday and didn't have time to make myself a lunch. I stopped at Quizno's to get a Torpedo. This particular strip mall has TINY parking spaces. Well, this stupid ditz in front of me couldn't decide which parking space she wanted to be in, so she couldn't get...
  4. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving

  9. Homesteading and gardening
    I started cleaning up the front yard today. I had some bags of mulch that have been sitting out there for what seems like forever. I forgot there were so many, but finally managed to get all 27 back to the "holding area" in the back. The crabgrass and weeds had grown up around them, so I...
