I'm very late in posting this. I had planned to do it on Monday after a busy weekend, but I ended up tripping over the dog and taking a fall, so I was not up to doing much yesterday afternoon or evening after that. The dog is fine and so is the computer that I dropped when I fell. I fell on my funny bone (that hurts) and elbow and also one knee. The knee is doing pretty good, the elbow hurts and is sporting a bruise, my back and foot are tweaked and today my neck is also sore. This, on top of the normal Fibro pain, is really limiting me at the moment. Thank God I did not hurt Caesar or hurt myself any worse. Onto the saving...
~Saturday Jeff and I made a run into Pullman and had lunch. We also picked up a few things we needed at the Dollar Tree and then went to Palouse Treasures Thrift store. We made a game of it where we each had $10 and could only spend that much or less and if we wanted to spend more, we had to negotiate with the other person to get some of their money. 😉 We had a lot of fun and each got some things that we wanted. I can't remember all Jeff's stuff but for me, I got a Nerf football for the grandkids (the cat destroyed the other one), 2 Williams and Sonoma cookbooks along with a India cookbook
, and a puzzle for the grandkids. Our grand total came to a little over $14 so I think we did well indeed.
~Sunday we went to Moscow to hit Marshall's clearance sale where we found a nice sweater for Jeff, a new hair styling brush for me, a sleepshirt for me, some tea and some agave.
~While in town we hit Goodwill and found some clothes for Steven ($1 each since that colored tag was half off), a really soft shirt for me ($2), 2 mugs (one of which will be a gift), a nice brand new space heater for the garage and a good sized bag of Legos that will be part of Bradley's birthday gift.
~We stocked up on fresh produce at Winco since they had great prices on pears, asparagus, bananas, broccoli and we also got some milk and shrimp.
~Jeff and I watch the old classic Godzilla movie that we got at the thrift store last week. I remember watching it as a child and call me hokey, but I still love those old movies and I still cheer for Godzilla! 😁
~Monday I cut Jeff's hair. He no longer looks like a hermit that just came out of the woods.
~I started to do Yoga again this week using some DVDs I have here. Boy am I sore.
~My DIL Heather and another friend suggested that I try to do yoga with this instructor via Youtube.
~Tuesday I checked out the upcoming grocery ads online that go into affect tomorrow. There were only 2 items that interested me so Jeff will pick those up near the ned of the sale cycle since one of the items is bananas and we still have 2 bunches here.
~One of my dear friends was rushed to the hospital Monday night so I called around this morning to the hospitals trying to find her. I finally reached her at home and am glad that she is doing so much better. I had planned on going in to see her at the hospital today if she was still there.
~I did not sleep well at all Monday night so I took it easy on myself Tuesday. I still ended up having a migraine, but I knew that something would happen due to my lack of sleep...it always does.
~There was a documentary on Netflix about Charles the 8th that I watched and really liked.
~Jeff and I decided at the last minute, when he woke up in the afternoon, to go to a matinee movie. We had been given gift cards for the theater for Christmas. We had not had lunch so we bought sodas and popcorn and ended up spending $9 out of pocket for everything. We really enjoyed the movie "Black Panther".
~I had won a free bagel or donut in the Safeway Monopoly game so I picked up a donut and Jeff and I split it.
~While in town, I picked up some zucchini for .99 a pound. I have been craving them like crazy lately.
~Jeff and I came home and had leftovers for dinner.
~Wednesday I went down to the library and borrowed another cookbook for the Instant Pot.
~I did the hot tub maintenance and saw that it needed more water so I added some and then laid the hose out in the driveway to drain so it would not freeze and then crack.
~Chopped up celery was added to the tuna salad to stretch it and make it more tasty. I added a large stalk to a small can of tuna. I also went light on the mayo since I am trying to eat a bit more healthy.
~I had a swagup 100 point bonus that I had to use by tomorrow so I cashed in for a $5 Texas Roadhouse gift card bringing my gifts cards for there up to $30.
~Jeff wanted to sell some bumper covers that he had in the garage so I got them listed online.
~While putting a bag full of Legos into a Glad container today I noticed that some of the parts were of one of the Star Wars plane kits. Upon further inspection, I found lots of other cool kit parts too. Our grandson Bradley is going to be thrilled with Grammie's $5.99 Goodwill find!
~Thursday was another stay at home day for me. I worked on my points programs for a good portion of the day.
~Dinner that night was baked split chicken breasts with baked potatoes for Jeff and roasted asparagus for me as my side dish. I am trying to avoid russet potatoes at the moment.
~Dessert that night was Greek yogurt with some agave to sweeten it and fresh blueberries.
~Friday we got more snow so I again stayed home. The savings in gas is a good thing.
~Jeff needed more bread for sandwiches, so I baked him 2 more loaves.
~I was craving broccoli cheese soup so I quickly made some for lunch...YUM!
~A big salad was my choice for dinner and Jeff made himself grilled cheese sandwiches.
~Both Chris and Josh called and I had a nice visit with each of them.
I still can't believe it is already Tuesday. Today is a bright and sunny day and I am happy to see the sunshine. I feel so badly for everyone that is dealing with the horrible storms in the midwest and back east. My family members all escaped damage to their homes back east, but some of their neighbors were not so lucky. Please keep everyone who has been affected by these storms in your thoughts and prayers.
