Slept late enuf to rush wakies time, but got 2 lg flats of chix sink-thawed, in time to start the large crockpot with thawed stock; also a small oven batch that wouldn't fit in the crock. The daily coffee chat with Greg: we planned fetching 25 lbs of bulk peanuts later in the day.
While Greg was at the Y, I spelunked an old travel-pillow bag in the garage for road pillows, which replace some ortho supports I'd loaned to Judy ydy; these brace my knees straight in the van to minimize soft tissue strain and pain. I set that huge rolling bag to bring in/unpack later, and brought in several pillowcases from it, to wash. I found a power tool Greg or Brandon had left on my scooter seat ydy (NEVER block a disabled person's only place to sit OR their mobility aid), and stowed it on the tool shelf Brandon and I had cleared the day before-- FOR TOOLS-- behind the scooter.
Had lunch then did rough draft of notes for our PA landlord-- these will accompany fone videos we'd shot to remind me of info they will want re repairs needed and how to live in that crazy house (what/how to winterize, etc.).
Done in time to go fetch order of bulk peanuts-- the nice long trip in the country Judy can't do as we'd planned.
We ate the supper I'd pre-made.
Bulk peanuts are now divided and stowed.
Bulk tater flakes are also refilled.
A sugar bottle for the counter is refilled.
Most of the crockpotted chicken is cooked and cooling. The balance is finishing cooking in time to cool the chix and broth, and add the broth to a waiting saucepan in the fridge. Chix to be boned tmrw and 2/3 of it frozen. A third for the fridge for lunches.
I miss my 2nd fridge, my freezer, and my manifold food storage containers SO MUCH-- my motivation to keep clearing garage space before March, which can't come too soon!
