Sorry. I got six packages ready for mail today and accepted by the post office, but something happened to my knee and I can barely walk. It's the same area that was affected by the fall two years ago, only worse. It's the outside of my knee along the joint. I need to stay off of it for another day and they will see me Friday. If I don't finishing the packing and mail tomorrow, for sure they will go out Thursday. I'm sorry. I usually mail right away but once again, when I offer several types of items and orders are a combination, it takes me a while to double check that I have the right items in the right boxes. I can't work on the new ones either because the printer is upstairs in the craft room and there is no way I can make the stairs. Packing material is in the basement! So is the Dove chocolate. I'm screwed.
We didn't get canning done either because Mark was picking mushrooms all afternoon. His grandfather and father were pickers and Mark shares the bounty with friends. I remember his grandmother's house (she spoke little English) with strings of mushrooms drying to be put away for soups and ethnic dishes. What a year for mushrooms. Over the weekend he chopped the sheephead fine, sautéed with fresh garlic, diced sweet peppers and onions. Wonderful. Fabulous! I ate a lot, also used the mix in an omelet.
I'm chewing my Advil and following with a chocolate to kill the taste. I missed walking this summer because of the two sprained ankles and now it looks like I won't be walking this fall either. I just wanted everyone to know that I will be getting their orders out very soon.
