We're in the deepest of the Frozen Zone so far this season. Down to single digits at dawn on Day Off.
I went out n got more eggs so I could keep baking to keep the house warm. I wanted to get a gallon of milk too, but there were only a few half gallons left on the shelf. I wanted to make some custard pie.
News reported that all dairy stuff is about to steeply rise in price due to the Congress' failure to act on an agriculture bill about farm subsidies. It will affect alot of food prices due to the uses of corn too.
Since Xmas many inexpensive items I usually get weekly have been cleared off of shelves here. Prices on almost everything at the store is already up from last week, I noticed. The payroll Social Security tax withholding increase is supposed to begin soon-
So my shopping budget is already messed up, even with the temporary Fiscal Cliff bill they passed on New Years.
I'd rather begin the year with a surplus...
The snow at the boat ramp came out really blue late this afternoon with the sun behind some clouds, but I like the pic anyways, n especially the warmer altered versions it produced. Back to staying warm...
