Decaf coffee is just as good this time of the morning, no matter which side of it you are coming from. I am sure Shirley is just getting up and I haven't even thought about going to bed yet but I like the thought of us having coffee together this morning.
My grandson got his first check today. He had to show everyone the stub. He has planned to put half of each check into savings and even though he only had a partial week on this check and it will make it a bit tight for him since he only gets paid every two weeks, he actually followed through. Proud that he plans to do that. He used to be very good with money but developed a major gas station junk food habit during the last couple of years where he wanted to spend the majority of his allowance on junk foods. Although he is skinny as a rail I hope his obsession with the junk foods don't keep up with his increasing
income or he will be waging a battle with weight.
I froze 15 bags of squash today. Our family loves squash but this area got hit by two different kinds of squash bugs for the past three years so we rarely get more than one or two squash before the vines die. My husband has really been researching and working with the Extension office to find an organic way to deal with them. I count this as a victory, even though he has been seeing signs of them for the last few days. Maybe next year will be even better.
The man who grows corn here and sells it cheaper than we can grow it called today to let us know that he is picking in the morning. I guess we'll pick up a hundred ears or so and get them in the freezer for the coming year. So happy that WW allows corn here and there. I don't think the powers that be at WW has ever eaten anything but truckers varieties of corn. If they had ever eaten Silver Queen or Peaches and Cream they would never make corn zero points "because corn is not something that is easy to overindulge in". It's like dessert to me. I have learned to have my one serving and behave myself.
I got the freezer cleaned out and organized today so that I can find everything and have room for the corn. Big job that I was dreading.
