Shopping, canning, and eating out x 2

My bff and I left the house by 9:30 and headed to the outlet mall at Lake Ozark. My goal was to find one good pair of nice comfortable shoes. 

We picked and choose which stores to go in carefully. My bff recently had two surgeries on the same foot, just two weeks apart. We browsed at the Children's Palace, Body Works, Gold Toe, and then we hit the shoe stores. At Sketchers I found a pair of brown tie shoes I had been looking for. Our next stop was Naturalizers.  As I was trying on sale shoes, bff  found the  marked down rack. Before the blink of an eye she found  4 pairs, all for less then $18 a pair. What a bargain she got! I did find a pair of black slip on every day flats. Okay so I ended up with a total of two pairs of shoes.

We then headed to Eldon where I found some sausage seasoning at the Amish store. Across the street I parked in the handicap spot and we shopped at Dollar General. I showed her the CD's I bought for the grand daughter for $5.  They have 40 plus kids songs and the kids love to sing along. Bff has a 2 year grandson who is into music big time!

After a quick stop at Subway for lunch we headed home.

This is what I did after I got home. I canned pink grapefruits and Cutie oranges. I found the recipe for the grapefruits at Canning Granny

Before I could can my regular oranges I got a call from my son to go out to eat with them. They are on the list for tomorrow.

Someone sure enjoyed her chicken legs!

Diner was great. I had buffet which included BBQ fall off the bone ribs and golden fried chicken. Did I mention there was cherry cobbler and peach cobbler with Central dairy ice cream too?  On the way home, we stopped just a half mile down the road to visit with my Mom. She was so tickled to see the grand kids and great-grand kids. Thanks son and DIL for dinner.

The blacksmith called tonight. He was glad that they all three bagged a deer today. He will have about a 4 hour drive home in the morning. Red neck trailer and all!

Your citrus canning is beautiful. I would leave them out so I could admire them all winter. Now I wish I had not just recently given away all of my canning jars. I read granny's post and I think I could have done that! Always a day late and a dollar short...

Ohhhh, you were down in MY neck of the woods!!! I was in Eldon on Saturday too . . . I wonder if we met each other on the road :0! So glad to hear you had a great day. And I've GOT to try those CUTIES. I've heard of them, but never bought them. Enjoy this beautiful weather we are having!

Hey girl!! yes, Good & Perfect Gifts is moving to Eldon. I think they are closing the store at the Lake, but keeping the store in Jeff. I heard they wanted to be open by the end of January. They have been working on that building forEVER! It will be beautiful, and a nice place to shop. Let me know when you're down my way. I'd love to meet in person :0!
