Interesting about that calorie counter. I've used MyFitnessPal for years, but it doesn't do much in the "you shouldn't do this" area (unless I do a fasting day and close out the day and it says I wasn't eating enough. . .) On the cool weather front, that sounds wonderful! We have another sloppy hurricane (Nicholas) coming through the area this week. High humidity, chance of rain (but we're not directly in the path, so it's hit or miss.)
The stock pot is heating for the tomato sauce; jars process for 35 minutes and at that rate the little pot boils away too fast (it's perfect for small batches that process for 10 minutes). I'm hoping for at least 2 quarts, in half-pint and pint jars. No one ever said gardening and canning are cheaper or faster, but it is satisfying.
The last of the privet/ligustrum to be cut are tall straight limbs, so when I finish the sauce I'm going to take the reciprocating saw back and lop them off, then simply drag a few bundles of them to the curb. All of the various sized and shaped branches are easier in the tarp, but dragging this last bit will be faster.
