Good Saturday morning all,
The car situation is still uncertain. I opened the hood and looked for leaks and then started the engine and looked for leaks or smells. Also noted that the gas gauge now showed the expected level of gas, not almost empty. So hubs thinks the sensor has gone wacky. Today, I will use it to go shopping. We will see what happens out on the road. Still, I will not feel safe, so I will car hunt. We did a bit on online research and I want the new safety features. Hubs says they may be hard to get in a smaller car. Thanks Maggie for sharing your experiences. Janet, yep I may need some luck.
I find being upset(about the car) to be exhausting. I didn't have a very productive day by my standards. Still I planted a few things, watered and did a little mulching. I had just laid down for a short afternoon nap, when my girlfriend called. We ended up talking an hour, so no nap. She and I graduated from high school together. She also was a neighbor and we did a lot together as children. She is going to the 50th high school reunion. I am not. It is a convenient drive for her. For me, it would be a long plane ride, rental car and motel. They asked everyone to tell what they have done in the last 50 years. Writing that up was interesting. I still want to add a little, but I have had a good life.
I realized that I am going to have another mouth to feed for a few days next week when my military son stays with us.
I need to think what I am going to do.
Today is the last day before it starts raining. I always try to get things planted before a rain because rain is so good for the garden. Hubs is back on his medication, so it is shower time as well. I probably will give him a hair cut too.
Today will be a trip to Winn-dixie for their sale on turkey breasts, 99c/lb, limit 4. Also yogurt and another try for eggs. First, I will drive and park and walk to dollar tree. There is an optometrist next door. I will see if they will tighten my glasses for free. Most will. Then buy the food from Winn-dixie. That will be my walk for the day. Hubs says there is a prescription to pick up at Walgreens. That should be our last one before getting a $5 off. If I can take it off the prescription, that will be great. Then I will move them to the CVS which is in walking distance. This is part of my plan to reduce car use. More things within walking distance. Less car use. Frugal and healthy.
Hubs is pretty ok with this diet and seems interested in continuing it. Losing some more weight. He feels that with his low level of muscles(disabled), he is still overweight. He is not within normal BMI either. Well, we will see. My neighbor's church helps the poor and I have some food here, unopened that we will not be able to have again. It is time to give it away if it is not expired. Interesting times.
Cat got me up at 5:30 am. I think she believes that is when I should get up. Since I went to bed early, no problem. Today, I am grateful. Just for everything. Have a good day everyone. Be safe and happy.
