To do Tuesday

Out of bananas for the 2nd day so instead of breakfast after my usual morning routine I went to the store. Also needed chicken thighs for the soup (all I had were drumsticks and gizzards). I also wanted chicken hearts but would have had to go to the Asian supermarket for that. Stocked up on Apple Juice (they had 3 kinds of house brand but were out of the one i wanted so I had to settle). And also Gatorade.

And a small bag of sugar in case I ran out making hummingbird nectar.

The first project was haul out my big pot and make chicken soup. Mine is a long slow-cook process. I remembered my pot as larger than it is, and the 4 thighs I bought was too much, I had to fish 2 of  them out, bag them and put them in the freezer. Used the food processor on the parsnips and celery. Unfortunately those were already going limp. Mushrooms and onions were fine, I also threw in Thai lime leaves, peeled garlic, baby carrots, black pepper and green peas. Last minute 1/4 cup of barley. It's on the back burner on low, has been going all day but won't be done till morning. My chicken soup is done when all the meat is off the bones.

Put food out for the strays when they showed up. Ordered more paté for them on Chewy.

Delivered: 4 8-ounce hummingbird feeders. Whipped up 4 cups of nectar with hummingbird vitamins but no coloring. Took down the failed feeders and put those up. We'll see...

Also delivered was an egg slicer which has three sets of blades, one will halve the egg. I tried it on an egg from the fridge but said egg had gone bad waiting its turn.

Spook and Maam did a lot of fighting, there is a pile of empty boxes in the living room which makes a nice fortress. Maam keeps climbing me when I'm trying to type on the PC. She keeps getting her thumb claws caught in my shirt.

Called Met Life yesterday and canceled my auto insurance as of the end of the month. Got the final bill today, will pay it on 6/1

Watched a few episodes of The Equalizer. They have taken a left turn into romance. But they are doing it gently.

Also watched 90 Day Pillow Talk which is always entertaining. But SlingTV failed to record the main episodes. I am not happy. I think they have shuffled things off to Discovery + which I refuse to pay extra for.

PTI had two episodes to watch, which is also a WTF because there were none yesterday and should have been.

Took a nap around 2 pm, slept for half an hour.

No streamers. But I kept the hummingbird feeder stream going all afternoon.

Plans for tomorrow:
Banana breakfast
ladle the soup into containers for the freezer
Make deviled eggs
Watch Gold Rush and whatever else is on Sling and Tivo
