Long day again today. Worked, went to the ornament premiere, grocery shopped and even found a few goodies I can use in the store next time I put out stock. Topped last year's September sales by a good bit, too. Found out that a few of the items that have been there a few months sold - yay! All in all, a very good day!

When I got home I found Palmer beating her teddy bear up. I think she was taking out her rage on my leaving for the day on the poor bear. I'll toss it in the wash and it will be good as new. She slept with it when she was a kitten and now it is her punching bag. She seem to have forgiven me. Do you think it was the tuna fish I bribed her with?

Picked a small basket of tomatoes and four zucchini. Have never had a garden last this long - so cool! It looks like I will be canning on Monday due to storms tomorrow. I found a recipe for tomato basil jam and decided I had to make at least one batch. The tomatoes on the freezer are ripening fast and there is enough for the jam and some more chipotle sauce. Normally I freeze the sauces but, there is not enough room for that and the meat bought today. Tomorrow I get to rearrange items in the freezer. Might as well plan some meals while I am at, too.

My knee is feeling better - have been resting it for the past few hours. Time to go do a few chores and listen to the rest of the Greasy Skillet.

MERRY dreams!!! Stay safe, too!
Glad you did good at the shop!!!!

Palmer sounds like quite the character!!!

Have a good evening friend and stay safe in the storms!!!!

Congrats on your September sales!!

Palmer loves you so much, I'm sure all is forgiven! But the tuna was a nice touch I'm sure it helped things along!!

Glad your knee is feeling better 💛

Stay safe tonight.

Merry dreams to you, too!!

They had a Santa in a sleigh yesterday that I really liked but they were all gone today. So I got the one that looks like a Santa faced carved into a log. He was the last one of those they had too. He actually has a little scuff on him on the very back of one side that you can't really see. They gave him to me for $6 dollars though instead of the $15 they had on him. So that's probably how much they paid for him. I just wish I knew where they got them at.
Nice!! What a deal!!

The band is supposed to play for another 3 hours, and the party goes on for another 4 hours. Oh, lordy ... I guess we'll put on a video or a movie and play it loud.

Got the Blu-ray of "The Wizard of Oz," but haven't had a chance to check it out yet.
At least they were courteous enough to leave a note. Sorry the band isn't that good.

Good evening,

Very busy day at work. I am exhausted. Very good night for my teams, the Bruins beat Detroit 4-1, and the Red Sox won game 2, 7-4. I hope the Bengals keep up the streak tomorrow.

I want to go to Hallmark.

Good night, everyone.
