Last Week’s Thrifty Moves


Sunday was a beautiful day.  The weather was a little cooler and I woke up feeling pretty good.  I decided to take a drive and went to see my oldest daughter before she had to go to work that afternoon.  We went out for Sunday brunch and had eggs benedict.  It was so delicious and we had a wonderful visit.  Once I arrived home I got the laundry done and my sheets changed on my bed before heading outside to spend some quality time with Laverne.  Then my youngest arrived home from work at 6:30 and after supper she and I went for a bike ride and visited our neighborhood park.  It had been a while since I'd taken my little girl to the park for a swing and it was the perfect end to one of the best weekends I've had so far this year.


We had loads of cooler wet weather the majority of the last week which was welcomed very much.  It was getting a bit on the dry side around here.  Now the weeds are growing again.  The week seemed to pretty much speed right on by uneventfully.  By the time Friday arrived and I got off of work at 2:00 in the afternoon I was exhausted.  The youngest and I settled in for a movie and popcorn night and called it good.


After a good night's sleep (I was in bed by 9:00 after dozing off through most of the movie) I was up at 6:00, did a quick walk through the house to tidy up and put away a few things that had been left out and then fixed myself a cup of hot coffee.  Then it was time to settle in for some writing and put up a gob of posts on the blog before I headed into my craft room.  I spent the better part of morning and part of the afternoon sorting, decluttering, and re-organizing more sewing supplies, my jewelry making supplies as well as going through my craft supplies again.  Then I headed out to spend some time in Laverne with my retirement planner and did some thinking.  All in all it was a very good day.

THINGS I DID TO SAVE A SMALL BUNDLE OF $$:  I washed out a couple gallon size Ziploc bags to reuse.  We didn't need much in the way of groceries so I skipped the trip and didn’t do any grocery shopping.
