Good morning

Slept well last night. Again maybe the Aleeve. At least i was able to get out of bed and walk this morning. Getting better slowly.

One of the ladies that runs would be out there running with pain. Well she would take lots of pain meds to mask her knee injuries. I just can't do that. I think about sports athletes that do this all the time. No way for me.

So it will be another stay at home day. Not bad. Lots of things to read. Will do some small tasks.

Have a great day

yea - those almost falls usually end up with a twisted muscle or something.

Hope you are okay
Clem you are right. Now that I have been up and moving around more I am feeling the muscles that were more affected than I realize.

Good morning fellow frugalites,

Merged our two check ins this morning and went by time posted. Also managed to clean up a bit of spam. Still not quite awake, but slowly getting there with the help of a caffeinated beverage. Which is going down quite well actually, and will more than likely lead to another.

One coat on the hallway completed, and hopefully the second will be done today. I need my sewing room (and truth be told our bedroom) back in order to do anything at all.

Youngest DS said that Hubby asked if he would help move out the old furniture on Monday before he leaves. Good thing cause it is heavy!!!! That means we will need to get the carpet ordered and replaced in the living room very quickly, as well as the new furniture ordered from the one store or bought from the other. I want everything together by the end of the month at least.

Frugally speaking this month will be starting out very well. I have no need to spend any cash today so I will be having a no spend day. Our mini vacation will cost a bit, but we still have budget left from our family reunion trip set aside for vacation use. We should not be going over budget at all again this month.

In fact I am going to set my no spend days to 21, we have our trip, and an overnight date night in the capital on the 27th of this month. Going to see the live musical Chicago at the Globe Theater. Since it will be late, we will stay overnight.

I need to head into the garden today and pick beans, Hubby will have to dig potatoes and onions, and we will both probably pick banana peppers (we have soooo many of those) as well as some ripe tomatoes, I figure that I could be pickling some of those banana peppers today/tomorrow.

Plans afoot to make some banana bread from the three rather black bananas on the counter. I will more than likely give DS half of the dang thing, cause we really do not need that many sweets in the house.

Lists will be made for the coming week's chores, plus of course lists for what we will be taking food wise on this trip.

In other words just the regular frugal happenings around tDehe old homestead.

Supper this evening will be Pork roast, roasted carrots, creamed potatoes, and a tossed salad. Dessert will be more of the chocolate cake I made yesterday.

Today I am grateful that I won't be the one lifting out the old living room suite, the beast is heavy!!!!

Everybody have a great day. Take care.
Jackie glad to hear that your DS is there to help with the heavy duty furniture moving..

Good morning Janet and all,

Oh Janet, a fall is scary and an almost fall is almost as bad. I fall once a year. Used to be on the dance floor. Now, it just happens. I don't bother telling my doctor because I have heard the same lecture so often and still I do that fall.

Today, I go for fresh vegetables at Winn-Dixie. They have a sale on my favorites. I am gathering fresh vegetables in because Lakeland is back in the "cone" again. Lakeland is the supply center for groceries coming into central Florida. So when they are down, fresh vegetables are hard to come by. I hope there is no power disruptions, but I don't know how the power grid is set up.

If the storm moves west, I will start freezing pints of water for the refrigerator freezer and big cooler. I have frozen gallons in the chest freezer. Eating up the chicken. Then one meal of frozen fish. Only ground beef left. Easy to cook with my propane camping stove. Batteries all charged. Yard clean up continuing. Listening to Mike's weather report.

Today I am grateful that my knee is tolerating the additional movement. So far, no real pain. Have a good day all. Pray for the people of the Bahamas. 20 ft surge. Bahamas are 7 ft above sea level.
DG I do not bother my Dr with all of my little incidents either.. I figure if things are not better in a week or two go see her but otherwise just take it easy and take over the counter meds and work my way through things. Although I do have a narcotic on hand at all times. Which I rarely use. I am very trustworthy and so no problems with having it..In fact my Dr use to get on to me about not using it as much as I should since she said chronic pain makes you tighten up and that causes more pain. However I am very reluctant to use it but do have it on hand if need be.

I have not see the weather report this morning. It must drive you nuts not knowing which way the wind will be blowing literally? At least with our tornadoes we have an alert and can take cover and it is over within a fairly decent time and you can hopefully resume your activities.

Hi everyone,

I decided to go to 4:00 Mass last night and then go to the festival at my High School. Just as I was almost there, Mom texted me saying they had decided to do the same thing and would I like to come along. So we met at Church and then went to the festival and had dinner. Ran into a cousin of Mom's and a cousin of Dad's. LOL.

As a result, I spent a good portion of the morning sewing. I also went through my bin of fabric. I have more large scraps than I realized. I have a few ideas from Christmas.

I also need to find ways to keep from keeping myself from feeling bored and lonely. I think it is the combination that is getting to me.

Oh and edited to add, Friday evening I got a call from the GYN office. My endometrial biopsy came back benign. So the wacky hormones I have had all my life are still toying with me.

Have a great day,
Maggie
