Weekly Notes:

I kind of went AWOL for the past couple of weeks, but I’m back on track once again.  For anyone who cares, we basically had turkey or ham in one form or another last week (we had our annual post-Thanksgiving party a week ago Saturday, and had leftovers up the wazoo).

We got an enormous egg a couple of days ago (my first reaction upon seeing it was:  “Ow!”).  Turns out it had THREE yolks.  I’ve heard of double yolks, but had never seen one before, so a triple-yolk egg was pretty exciting.  And it made a tasty omelette, too.

Our power went out several times due to last Thursday/Friday’s ice storm.  The longest outage was maybe 1 or 1 1/2 hours total, with several brief interruptions (just long enough to make me have to reset all the clocks in the house YET AGAIN!). We have a generator but didn’t need to use it.  I’m glad that the freezer is FULL, because if we did lose power for a long period of time, it wouldn’t take a lot of energy to keep it freezer full of frozen stuff frozen.

Coming up next week…Hannukah!
