I have been busy organizing every room nook and cranny in the house. I have thrown out about 4 bags of junk.You know the things that you hang onto just in case. Well just in case is leaving the house! I still have the guest bathroom and all of the basement to do. I hope to get the bathroom done this week and then the basement will take a few weeks. I am going to go open and look at everything in storage containers down there and if we don’t need it, it goes. Then I will organize and label everything.
We had my birthday celebration one day this week. Hubby always asks me what I want on my birthday. If I want to go out, we go out. If I want to stay home, I pick the meal. I wanted to stay home. The food is always better. So we had steak that Hubby grilled outside. We added cheese mashed potatoes and tomatoes from our garden along with some sliced cucumbers. It was yummy!
Hubby looked for a recipe for Peanut Butter Pie which is my very favorite dessert. He made one and the whole pie is pictured above and the piece I ate is here:
This was the best peanut butter pie that I have ever eaten. I have ordered this pie in many restaurants over the years but I have to say this was the best one. We will be enjoying the rest this week for many meals.

Groceries lately have been pared down to necessities at the cheapest price or on sale only items. Groceries have just gotten way too expensive and they will be going up even more very soon.There are many things that I will not buy because I deem them not worth the price. I have to pick up Hubby’s prescription one day so I might stop on the way home. Gasoline prices are too high to go running out all the time.
Our heat is still on and will probably stay on for the winter. It was 70 here today but now it is really going to turn cold. We are keeping the heat at 68-69 during the day and 64 at night.
We have two blankets on our bed instead of using the electric blanket. We have a third blanket if we need it. I am going to be ordering extra blankets for the guest room beds so any company we have will not freeze. There are heavy comforters on those beds also.
I am off to do some more organizing. I hope you all have a good day.

Happy birthday, Precious! Sounds like it was a good one. Your dinner sounds like it was delicious. We do birthday dinners at home a lot also. We do the same temperatures for heat.
Hubby is off this week so we went to Costco to order new tires for my van. They were on sale, but still almost $1000. I will get them installed next week. We also got a few Christmas things for our parents and the gas was $3.62/gal, so filled up also. Also got the pecans for the sugared pecans I make at Christmas each year. Got 10 lb this year.
Eating from the pantry/freezer today and tomorrow. Friday we will be going to my family for the celebration party for our nephew who is recently married (they didn’t have a big wedding, just had their folks present). Looking forward to seeing our granddaughters play with my brother’s grandchildren
Thanks! You did well on the new tires. Ours are pricing out at $1200. We decided to wait a bit.
I am glad that you were ale to get some Christmas shopping done. I have pecans for Christms in the freezer also.
Enjoy your time with your family!
Happy Birthday, Precious! Glad you had a perfect day. That pie sure looks yummy!!!
