First off, a very Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends! I hope you all have a wonderful day, with much to be grateful for. ❤ David is thankful that he can now clamber his way to the top of my shelf, and stare at the ceiling. I must admit, your later Thanksgiving date makes it … Continue reading What’s up?
Today the girls and I headed into the city for our monthly shop. I know that there are people out there who actually enjoy shopping. I don't get it. I really don't! Okay, so today turned out to be a more complex shop than usual, but still... Ugh. It's just so draining! So here is … Continue reading People actually enjoy this?
The temperature outside is not the only thing was was warming up today. This is what I saw when I looked out our bathroom window this morning. Pretty sure that's Big Jim in the empty water bowl. 😀 Also, they are absolutely shredding the piece of Styrofoam I've got partially holding up their cat cave … Continue reading Warming, and comparisons
How the day was going to go was a bit up in the air, to be decided after we picked up our van. It ended up being a much longer day, but we got the bulk of our monthly shop in, after all. In order to get the van home, my younger daughter and husband … Continue reading Oh, what a day! 😀
Just a bit of catch up from yesterday, since I shut down the computer when we heard a thunderstorm coming in. It ended up passing us by, but even so, it got pretty loud out there! When doing my evening walk around the yard, I decided to head around the main garden area to check … Continue reading All Choked Up
I want to start by sharing some photos of the cats this morning. Because it's a great way to start the day! Like waking up to this... Actually, I woke up to see her sitting there, staring at me. 😀 The cats really appreciate the extra thickness of the window sill, thanks to the log … Continue reading Morning Cats, and shopping day
It's the last business day of the month - payday - so it was off to the city to stock up for the next month. I rather prefer to be able to do that in an afternoon in the middle of the week. As someone who hates crowds and shopping, it was a LOT less … Continue reading A long day – and yes, I got critter pictures!
This morning, I got word that the parts for our van are in, but the work won't be done until Monday. I had hoped to do our big monthly shop with our own vehicle instead of my brother's. We aren't out of food, but running low on things and have made a few trips into … Continue reading Stocking Up for the Month
I read a very interesting post this morning (Joe Average Buys Groceries) that I've found myself thinking about, off and on, throughout the day. The first part talked about how much people spend per month, per person, for food. The other part was personal experiences involving buying food on a limited budget. Reading it got … Continue reading The Grocery Conundrum
