Tate's expression above expresses is exactly how his Grammie feels today. He is so cute and I love this silly look on his face. 😁
Today is a major brain fog day. I get these kind of days sometimes, but today is a particularly bad one. Not sure if it is just because I am wiped out or because of the gabapentin that I started on last night. Could be either and only time will tell. Because of this, there are things on my "to do" list for today that are not going to get done. I had planned on making applesauce but I really don't trust myself with a knife today. I did cut open a acorn squash and oh my goodness, that was scary! So here is what I am attempting to do today that does not take much thinking (or using a knife).
~I washed all the bathroom rugs and bath mats and hung them out to dry on the laundry line. It is a cloudy but warmish and windy day so they should dry rather quickly. I try to do this at least once a month.
~I have Italian sausage and the acorn squash sharing a cookie sheet divided by separate aluminum foil liners in the oven cooking. Both needed to be baked and this is a good way to do it and save electricity.
~More money saving videos were watched on YouTube. I seem to glean something new or am reminded of something that I used to do, but stopped doing for whatever reason, each time I watch these.
~The water that was collected in the rain bucket was used to water some of the potted plants in the back yard.
~The cats and I enjoyed some time on the back screened in porch. I know that our time is going to come to an end soon being able to use this other room that we enjoy so much so we are taking full advantage of it.
~I cleaned out the refrigerator and found some things that needed to be used up ASAP. This is something that I really do need to do more often. The refrigerator was cleaned out a little at a time since I kept forgetting to get back to it and was getting very distracted.
~I redeemed my points at Mypoints for a $10 Walmart gift card.
~I did some surveys at Swagbucks and earned enough to cash in for a $25 Walmart gift card.
~More clean masks were loaded up into my purse. Jeff and I forgot to grab some when we went out yesterday and thank goodness I had 2 in my purse. Those are now in the laundry, so I had to "refill" my purse once again.
~Jeff called from work to let me know that he had accidently run over his phone. I told him to bring it home and if the sim card was not damaged, we could just put that in my old phone that is the same model. If not, we will have to get it switched over through the company. Luckily we did keep my old phone.
~I made a huge lasagna for dinner. It is a favorite around here and is one of Jeff's favorites. I used some of the parsley from the garden in the cheese mixture and also put some leftover red wine I had in the refrigerator into the sauce.
~Chris called and we had a really nice visit. He gave me an update on some friends and relatives that are dealing with Covid and other health issues. It sounds like the ones with Covid are starting to finally feel better, praise God!
That is about it for my frugal day. The plan for tonight is to take things easy, enjoy the lasagna and watch a few TV shows. I'm hoping that I can fall asleep earlier tonight since I am totally wiped out. Take care and God bless!
