Waste Not Wednesday, 2/23/11
Brrr, it's cold this morning!
Thank goodness for DH and his amazing fire building skills! Not to mention delicious coffee! lol
Today is work for me. I haven't decided if I'm going to get groceries after work, or just go home and THEN pick up youngest dd. We shall see. I'm cracking up at DH. He caught some special on how the U.S. is crashing slowly, and it gave him guidelines of everything we need to do to survive. Yay, it's funny how he's all of a sudden on board with being ultra frugal. Gee, I wish I would have thought of that!
Alright, I'm off to enjoy the snow lightly falling on the mountains before I awaken the offspring! Have a great day!

It's COLD and quiet here this morning.
DS#1 called earlier from CA, sometimes he likes to pass the time talking to us (hands free) on his way to work, cause it's 50 minutes each way. It was 9:30 here, so must have been...6:30 where he is! Good way to catch up, and to hear his voice. Good way to start my day, also!!
I am still kitchen cleaning---going to do the fridge today. Scrub it out and dump any science experiments.
Need to get back to working on knitting.....do that tonight.______

I'll be sitting by the phone waiting to hear if my surgery is still a go and if so what time tomorrow. Pray, pray, pray.

Was tempted to go out and buy some junk food, plantain chips, however was able to convince myself that homemade popcorn would do. Still need to go for a walk today. Don't know why buy I keep putting it off.
I am determined to have a little in savings this month so I can only spend $7.00 until next week. Since I have more than enough food here, bills and travel expenses covered I should be ok. This happened last month and while a little painful it did help convince me that I need to control the spending more.

Quiet here today. Made my chicken soup with the almost seven pound roaster, whee! Put in onions (with the skins), tomatoes (with the skins) and carrots, unpeeled. The soup is a gorgeous dark golden color. I'm cooling the soup and meat now, will whip up my favorite; chicken salad and will freeze the soup after skimming etc.
