Good morning,
Sunny but cold and windy here. Since there is no place I have to be I am going to build a fire in the fireplace. Yesterday my long time frugal friends and I went to a port and chocolate wine event at one of the wineries on the delta. We stayed a couple of hours and then came home.

Ii will be setting up my air fryer to fry some chicken. I want to make a nice thick coating and them fry it. It should be good. I am not sure what else I will be doing today. Maybe some reading or binge watching since I am not going anywhere.

Bev

Hi everyone,

I am home. I drove straight through yesterday. I left a bit before 7 AM, I think and arrived home about 9:30 PM. I ate on the go. I love my parents, but their VRBO was small, not bigger than my apartment and while I enjoyed the togetherness, I am glad to be back on my own. LOL. And the bed was horrible and I forgot my pillow. The furniture there was not very comfortable.

I went to my usual 8:30 Mass, been doing laundry and just got back from a trip to Meijers for groceries plus. I had laundry supplies and light bulbs on my list. Now I will take it easy as my ankle is bothering me again.

I did get my 1099 in the mail, so I will do my taxes. They are very simple with no longer owning a home, no charitable deductions to claim, only 1 W2 and 2 1099s.

Have a great day,
Maggie

I am sad & melancholy today, even cried some this morning. I woke up with my back aching too, time to rearrange my pillows again.

Dh is unhappy, says he hates himself, growls a lot at us, and doesn't do much for himself for hobbies/fun. Then comes the bickering among the children.

After everyone left, I turned up the heat & went to the basement to weigh out purply-blue wool. I have offers to buy 12 ounces.
The roving is very thin, almost like it is pre-drafted for spinning; I want to re-dye the green roving and not sure if it will work but don't want to have to spin it first before dyeing.

Have also been washing girls’ clothes, was guilted into it by dh. Apparently sorting girls’ dirty clothes on basement family room floor AND leaving them there (until they get washed) is offensive! Ds17 should shut his mouth about it as his room looks like Hurricane Katrina went through.

We still need a couple more forms before I can send off our tax info to my accountant friend.

Have decided basement is a good place to be, very quiet, and the couch is even somewhat comfortable.

Am going to try to finish crocheted ruffle scarf today, then will weave in all ends on scarf & dishcloths, and gather other items that I’m donating to the Young Women’s fundraising auction on Tuesday evening. Am debating on donating $10 as well.
