CVS has a coupon for a free pint of Ben and Jerry's
got a full size box of tampons, WTH? I'm supposed to do a survey, it starts with when was your last period? That would be 9 yrs ago, end of survey, lol. I must've given my info to a company that sells it to others.
Way too many pears. I picked 4 almost-full grocery bags of them. Someone in town has a tree overflowing with them and they invited anyone interested to come grab as much as they wanted before the frosts hit this weekend. The tree was so weighted down with fruit that some limbs had snapped! Three other people had also dropped in to pick while I was there, and we didn't even make a visible dent in the fruit on the tree despite each taking a lot!
I spent my afternoon making pear sauce (and attempted to can some, but none of the cans set- grrr), pear muffins, and fruit leather is processing in the dehydrator right now. Luckily everyone loves the pear sauce, so even though I have multiple jars that must go into the fridge instead of into the pantry, we can power through it. After all of that, I had no drive to attempt to reprocess it today. Maybe the next batch will go better.
But I still have 3 bags of pears left!!! I think I went a little overboard, but the tree is ridiculously overflowing with fruit. The woman's generosity, to invite complete strangers to come help themselves, really made my day today, even if we're now choking on too many pears.
