Re: DG's frugal journal

Tuesday am Already walked and watered. I have the driveway bed to water from the rain barrel. I am sure there is a clog in the southeast gutter, but I would have to get on a ladder and not with my bad knee, at least not until after I dance in Houston in July. I put trash cans under the likely leak s...

Re: Daily check-in June 25, 2019

Good morning frugal folks, Another sunny, hot and dry Florida summer day ahead. I already walked a bit with nervous neighbor. Knee doesn't hurt, but doesn't like to move.

I had been warned that buying too small a unit would allow humidity to build up, but with the new windows, the house humidity is actually comparatively low, so I wil...

Re: Daily check in June 22, 2019

Good morning frugal folks, The last 2 days I have been pain free from the bad knee. It still feels a bit tight and/or puffy from time to time, but pain free. I am still avoiding any lifting. But I am getting so flabby. Yuk. Today marks a second rain free day. I have a few garbage cans with water in ...
