Hello, Everyone!!!

We're in the midst of a snowstorm with several inches of snow expected today and tonight.

We will be away from tomorrow until near the end of the week. I'll be sure to post upon our return. Our housekeeper doesn't "do cats" so our neighbor will come in to check on Willow as usual. This arrangement works well and has been in place for nearly 15 years (when we built this house).

Happy frugaling and stay safe during the storms that are talked about in the news.

Greetings, Everyone!!!

We got home late last evening and all is well with Willow (as has always been the case).
Our Great Grand Baby arrived and is a healthy and 8# 12 oz, via C-Section. All is well there, also.

When we left on our little trip snow was on its way. Some of that snow is still on the ground. Now we are under a snow storm warning with 3-7" expected. Should arrive late tonight and continue into tomorrow morning. I'm glad we're not going anywhere now.

Frugality speaking, no spending until we make a "mercy run" to the food store. Lots of mail, e-mail, newspapers, etc. to deal with. See you all later.

Howdy, Everyone!!!

We did go to the food store yesterday before the snow started. The store was jammed with what seemed like zillions of people who were stocking up on just about everything. jeesh... what a mess. We always empty the fridge and freezer before we go away so we needed a few fresh items. If that had not been the case, we would not have gone.

Snow continues to fall. Totals of between 6" and 9" expected by the end of the day. Plows have been through on streets but no driveways have been done yet. There is no place we need to be and I'm glad of that. No travel, no spending and no dangerous routes to be out on!!!

See you all later. Stay safe and smile!!!

Greetings!!!

When I stepped outside to retrieve the newspapers, the temp was 8F. Right now we're up to 15F and will probably stay there for the rest of the day. Very breezy but sunshine abounds!!! Truly beautiful out there!!! The snow we received with our snowstorm yesterday won't be melting any time soon...

We'll be hanging out at home today as we don't have any reason to go out. Yay, for that!!!

Stay safe and enjoy your frugal day!
