Good morning fellow frugalites,
It seems that the new normal here will be hazy skies in the morning and then searingly (spellcheck says that is not a word, but I like it) hot in the afternoons. Sure hope the plumber shows up on Monday with an air conditioning unit. The electricians usually get here quite quickly so it would be running in no time.
I have the ladies from the Prayer Shawl Ministry coming here tomorrow, so I am getting a few of the chores usually listed for tomorrow done today. Including stripping the bed and changing the bed clothes. Laundry will be done as well.
This is going to be a hard on the bank book month. My small TV has hit the bucket... It is about 20 years old (perhaps a bit older) and now that it isn't working correctly (goes completely black after about 30 minutes of watching) will need replacing. I may be undergoing recovery from my android box for a bit. I just don't know how to hook it up to a new TV and will need to wait for youngest DS to arrive home for a visit. As Hubby says, "We better not move too far away from K." I just said if he moves we follow right behind him.
I will be as frugal as possible in order to make this month a little easier on the cheque book. It isn't that we can't afford things, it is just I would rather spend on something else (like travel, or yarn or fabric
). We have actually been underbudget most months of this year, and by a goodly amount as well.
Mass was a bit extended last night, but as it is the least attended went well. We did the prayer shawl blessing and it seemed to go over quite well. There was a bit of teasing by the ushers at first...things like "hand those out to those who are sleeping" things of that nature.
Saw an old friend of the family, was nice to get a hug from B and L. They are both wonderful people of my parents age group. Kind of like getting a hug from my Mom and Dad.
Frugal happenings today will be baking bread (keeping it in the bread machine though), doing a bit of baking this morning for tomorrow, laundry hung outside on the lines, using either the Instant Pot, or electric roaster to make supper (should keep the house from heating up too much), walking for exercise, all the usual frugal habits.
Supper tonight will be roast beef, mashed potatoes, and peas. There is a kale salad to finish up as well.
Today I am grateful that I can watch a few things on my tablet using the CTV go app, and the Global go app. I may have to get youngest DS to add and configure a few more apps.
Everybody have a great day. Take care.
