Fresh flowers....I bought these tonight, it's not something I do often because I always find them to be expensive, but it was a little treat for me.
I'm so tired, and I'm thinking that as soon as this post is written, I will log off, shut down my laptop and head to bed.
It's been a busy day, as it always is on payday for us.
Errands to run, bills to pay, shopping and the usual housework, cooking, laundry etc.
I don't think I would change it for anything in this world though. As tired as I may seem at the end of the long day, I always manage to look back and smile at how productive it was and everything that I accomplished.
Not nearly everything that I had in mind to do, but, a good portion was done, and that is what matters.
We went out to a quick dinner tonight at one of our favorite places, Ono's Hawaiian Barbecue. So good!!
Then took a quick run by Fry's for some of their sale items. I've noticed that not everything is cheaper than the base commissary, but there are a few things that are worth picking up there, especially when you do the Buy One, Get one Free.
And the price of their milk is way cheaper than the commissary. Goodness, we're paying almost 4 dollars a gallon there.
Was able to stock my deep freezer with bread, milk and berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, all of which were on sale with the Buy one, get one free).
I also find that eggs are cheaper at Fry's and since we go through a lot of those, it's worth getting them there.
Still have grocery shopping to do tomorrow, but don't need too many things.
In preparation for the grocery shopping, I always clear out my fridge, give it a good cleaning and go through what is still good and what needs to be thrown out or used right away.
Since I had a couple of veggies that were close to expiring, I made a huge pot of soup. Potatoes, onions, half a zucchini, carrots, celery and I threw in a can of kidney beans as well.
Hearty, filling soup.
I let it cool down just a smidge then filled mason jars with the soup, and placed them in the fridge. It will make for a quick yummy lunch during the week.
I don't like wasting, so to throw out the veggies when I restock the fridge tomorrow, would just be a waste of money.
And now my sweet friends, I'm going to head to bed. I'm actually excited, I received a Sleep One Air Adjustable Pillow this afternoon, to review. I have major issues with my right shoulder, matter of fact I find it very hard to sleep on my right side because it hurts and then makes my neck hurt and it's just a pain.
This pillow is supposed to be wonderful for neck and shoulder pain, so we'll see how it goes :)
Have a wonderful night and thank you for taking the time to visit me here in my little corner, I do appreciate your visits and your comments :)
