  1. Oh, no! All I can suggest is eat as much as you can and offer the rest to your neighbors and the local food bank. Sympathy sending.

  2. Ah … vegetable freezer goes out … you need a lot of vegetarian friends and a cooking party with eating to follow.
    Much as I love books – and I do still buy cookbooks – much of my reading is now from free e-books.

  3. Rats indeed! Wouldn’t it be possible to can it? I know it’s a lot of work but maybe better than see it going to waste?
    Love that eggshell blue!!

  4. Zoomie, I don’t even know if we have a local food bank…. But they wouldn’t take little bags of mushy veg….
    Tanna, free e-books? Do you curl up in bed with your laptop? Actually, that’s a good idea….
    Baking Soda, it’s a good idea… but I don’t know where my canning stuff is – and I don’t think the end result would be good – after being frozen. (And I think it was off longer than initially suspected) :-((

  5. Ha! You crack me up. 2000 works of fiction! Where do you put them all? Do’s Mom is in the publishing business, so he was always taught as a kid to buy books instead of checking them out of the library, so that you support the authors. Good idea, in theory, only it means that we constantly have mountains of books at risk of overtaking the rest of the house. We’ve been eyeing more bookshelves from ikea for a couple months now, but the apartment’s only so big!

  6. Val, well, one mustn’t be idle…..
    Maria, hope you like it ;-))
    Neen, right now they are in boxes tucked everywhere – and my ‘good’ ones are in a storage locker. Ikea bookshelves – they can go to the ceiling, just get a little step-stool. Never too many books!
