Worked out Then got almonds & raw sugar. Made lunch to take to work. Put in a load of darks. Dh is cooking dinner it marinading in the fridge. (Chicken breasts). Will make green beans to go with. Have a great Friday!
Today was going to be very frugal but I had to take an unforeseen trip (about 25 miles, round trip) to return a light-fitting I'd picked up yesterday - after a long wait for the store to have it in stock. When I came to unpack it this morning - it was cracked. I thought I'd better take it back RIGHT NOW since they might not have others in stock, if I waited. So that was fuel used up that I hadn't planned for.
No problem getting a replacement fitting: there were still two on the shelf. Ah, I say to myself, but if I'd waited -
Other than that, it's been the excitement of managing a home, doing some music-theory homework, having home-made soup for lunch and - watching it snow.
We went out, in the snow (because otherwise we get Cabin Fever) - just four slippery, icy miles. Not another soul out there - wonder why? But there you are - free fresh air, free coastal views, free exercise.
And supper is from the Reduced For A Quick Sale counter: that's really frugal.
Went grocery shopping in the freezing -22°c cold this morning.
Came home and fed and put Mini down for a nap.
Need to fold and put away laundry. Will run another load later.
Quiet afternoon in our warm house. Hubs should be home early and a friend might visit later on.
Good Friday all in all.
Went for a walk, then used my CVS dollars to stockup on some toothpaste, disinfected the kitchen and bathroom sink, wiped down with lysol cloth all light switches, phones, computer keyboard and mouse. Still need to do a little straightening up and dust. Then clean out the outside closet and sweep.
We got about 5 inches of snow yesterday with more to come according to the weather forecast...had the shovelling done by 8am...went uptown with Sophie so she could pick a belated Bday gift...she picked two jets and a large stuffy penguin lol.
The roads are a mess,but crew are working hard to get them cleared. Got some laundry on the go and light house keeping. Have a great weekend!
There wasn't a lot of snow accumulation overnight thank goodness but gave the drive & sidewalk a quick pass over to make it easier for walking. Dropped DH at work with his food & coffee for the day. Got home in time to answer his call - there's a package coming and I need to stay home to receive it. Apparently it's for me b/c he won't tell me what it is :laugh: Sneaky boog.
The basement is so cold in the afternoon since we removed the ceiling insulation. I'm only noticing it moreso daily as we keep going in and out of cold snaps like we're currently experiencing now. I can't wait til we're done the lv rm reno - hopefully before next winter! Brrr!
So I got free babysitting from grandma tonight only to find out I am on the volunteer schedule for my son's basketball concession stand. I was planning on starting my weekend of batch cooking but looks like I will need to start tomorrow. I did get a few dz cookies made during nap time today. Also got some laundry done all in cold water. Oh and I was able to use up all the leftovers for snack today.
