Less chores to do tomorrow.
I’ve done some more of the chores I need to do before I stay at home for two whole weeks. I’ve bought more deer food and more fire logs too. Unfortunately they didn’t have any of the brands of cat food my cats accept so I’ll have to buy that tomorrow. Cats are picky when it comes to food and Bertil especially. He can eat dog food straight from any dogs bowl but he refuse to eat it from his own🙂 He only accepts one brand when it comes to cat food though, there is a spare on but he only eats that when he’s really, really hungry.
I’ve written a long list of what I need to buy tomorrow or at Thursday after leaving Sune at the vets office. I love milk so I need to buy a lot and then I’ll put most of it in the freezer, takes forever to defrost but I can’t live without milk🙂🙂🙂 I think I’ll have to do a lot of jelly this weekend so I can put in a lot of food in the freezer. I have both Rowan berries and sloes in the freezer and both will make delicious jelly🙂 I’m thinking of putting both of them in one batch since I don’t have especially much with sloes. But one must remove the kernels in the sloes before cooking them, if not they are inedible.
I normally write something about our Yule symbols and traditions here every Yule and I’ll do that this Saturday if nothing else turns up. Most of our symbols and traditions have a pagan past to be honest, this year I’ll write some about one of our more important symbols that I don’t think I’ve written about before, the pig. The pig has followed us from the days we celebrated the pagan Julblot (Yuletide says Wikipedia it’s called in English).
It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat. It feels like I’ll have an early evening today, the closer I get to Yule vacation the more tired I feel🙂🙂🙂 My brain is ordering the rest of my body to slowly shut down the systems and preparing for a long and nice rest🙂
