Month in Numbers is a meme by Julie Kirk at notes on paper
The month sort of just went by. It didn’t fly by. It didn’t drag by. It just went by in the way non-eventful days go by. I’ve got nothing specific to say about it, or the summer in general actually.
But here are some highlights of the summer.
22 – pounds of hamburger eaten. This was my only real goal of the summer – eat all the ground beef. We had lots of burgers and the occasional cheeseburger pie or tacos and on August 31st we ate the last of it. I was adamant about this because we are talking about doing another cow share with 3 families. That is how we ended up with the original 48 pounds of (very fatty) ground beef to be begin with. If there was still ground beef left when we got another third of a cow we’d never get out from under the pile of ground beef. All we have left of the cow share are some thin cut sirloins, a 4lb brisket & a giant pot roast that is too big to fit in my crock pot or enameled pot. The sirloins will get eaten soon enough and we’ll be doing the brisket up for an Autumn Equinox party in a few weeks (or Halloween, depends on football)
2.5 – giant bottles of tequila drank, plus 2 regular sized bottles. Havoc has gotten very good at making margaritas.
3 – bottles of syrup made, also for margaritas
$12.74 – an amount I will NOT be paying for the new Agatha Christie book in kindle format. I’m dubious about the whole idea to begin with and that price puts me firmly in the “no, not going to buy it” category. There is no need whatsoever for an ebook to cost that much and I just won’t pay it. I can wait a bit & get the book for free from the library.
Free from the library is ALWAYS an option HarperCollins Publishing. So is $3 for the used hardback. Please keep that in mind.
4 – football games played so far
0 – football games won so far – neither team is doing so good
32 – geocaches found
4 – new tires to replace 4 very bald tires on my mini-van
30ish give or take a few – meals I actually cooked (as opposed to sandwiches, leftovers & cans of soup heated up)
3 – loaves of sourdough bread made with my sourdough starter
7 – days it took me to get a usable sourdough starter
10 – weeks of Project Life pages I have assembled this summer
31 – last week I actually assembled
36 – week we are beginning today.
I’ll catch up, I swear! The boys go back to school tomorrow at long last!!!
