Re: Daily Check-in October 22, 2020

Good morning, frugal ones. Having a peaceful morning at work. We're waiting to begin a Zoom meeting. I sewed elastic on two masks while having my coffee break. Yesterday afternoon during a very boring work Zoom meeting, I actually fell asleep! Fortunately my desktop computer has only audio, no camer...

Re: High Grocery Prices - Are you doing things differently?

We were the recipients of two federal farm food boxes last weekend: there was a local giveaway and a guy approached us in the grocery store parking lot and asked us to line up for some, as they had more than they could give away. Since then I've been thinking up ways to use up that bounty of free fo...

Re: Daily Check-in October 20, 2020

Penny, I hope your doctor finds that things are holding steady. Patty, that is wonderful news! I had a good day at work and got a lot done. Left at a few minutes after 5 and my car would not start, so DH came to jump off the battery and it would not take a charge. I think the battery is at least six...

Re: Is the Coronavirus affecting you

I think you'd be as well off with a good mask and wrap around glasses like safety glasses that cover your eyes. There was an early study done when doctors in China noticed that near-sighted people did not get it as often and they realized glasses offer some protection.

Re: Is the Coronavirus affecting you

Maggie, I think a face shield with fabric attached rather like a bee keeper's helmet (without the hat) is an excellent idea. You could tell a little one it's a spaceman shield. We received face shields here at the office, and our boss told us we wouldn't have to wear a mask if we wore them. We said,...
