Re: Daily Check In June 19, 2021

I agree real-estate has gone crazy here as well. I too am glad I have my own nest. I have looked in to downsizing and I cannot afford it...lol The prices are too high and the taxes are even higher for the smaller homes. I was lucky to freeze my taxes when I turned 65. It is still a struggle to pay ...

Re: Daily Check In June 19, 2021

Hi, everyone. I woke up early and went grocery shopping. Then we went to visit Homeless Buddy, who is still ailing. The procedure to clean out his leg arteries seems to have partially failed and he has been able to work only three days a week. He is being interviewed Monday by a charity that helps g...

Re: Daily Check in June 18, 2021

Janet, I am taking the weekend off. All I have to do is buy groceries, cook some spaghetti and make a quick visit to Homeless Buddy to take him his mail. I really enjoyed my vacation, despite doing so much work around the house. This afternoon I did a little splurge and bought some cushions for the ...

Re: Daily Check in June 18, 2021

Update: I washed the doors and windows that were planned and a few more. In the process, I discovered why there are flat paving stones laid around our house at the foundation: it's to set a stool on for window washing! My husband usually washes them and is tall enough to stand without a step stool, ...

Re: Daily Check in June 18, 2021

Good morning, frugal friends. Everyone was tired at my house yesterday evening. DH, Lily Dog and I all pretty much flopped into bed and passed out. I usually don't let Lily stay the night with us, but she was so sound asleep on the bed that I did not have the heart to move her. All the rain this sum...

Re: Daily Check In June 17, 2021

Kitty, I hope she takes the advice to heart and takes it easy. Janet, I am sorry poor little Teddi is still having stomach issues. I picked up the pace and thoroughly dusted the house with many flannel cloths and Endust. There's a lot of wood and open shelves and it took me several hours to do five ...
