Our dear weatherman is already forecasting ice for our area beginning on Friday. I hope they are wrong, as they frequently are. I know it's January and we can expect wintry weather, but ice is something I'm very afraid of since I broke my ankle so severely many years ago after falling on it.
The trees in the photo above are covered in hoarfrost, but it looked icy to me when I was searching for a pic in my folders. I haven't used my camera much lately. It's been so bitterly cold that I didn't want to step outside. A little warming trend ahead of the predicted ice has begun which we are happy to have.
Since it will be warmer for a few days, it is time for me to get out of the house and head to the grocery store to pick up some essentials. Like bread, it seems like I've run out. I found that out when I wanted to make myself a sandwich yesterday with the bacon left over from Sunday's breakfast. And couldn't. Bummer.
With the bad weather supposedly coming, the stores will be busy the next few days. Everyone seems to stock up in case we have a blizzard or ice and can't get out for days and days. My cupboards are pretty well stocked, but I do need a few things such as bread, eggs and fresh produce. That's one half of my pantry in the photo, they need a good cleaning out. I'm sure I have a few items that have expired.
I'm hungry for something and I haven't yet decided what that is. Does that ever happen to you? It's not something sweet. Maybe it's just a plain ole cheeseburger. Yes, that does sound good! I'm putting hamburger and buns on my list. What is your must-have food item to have on hand?
