Lazy Sunday

Yesterday, I didn’t leave the house one time which means I didn’t spend a dime.  (It rhymed!)  I like that the sound of that.  No spend days!  Gotta love’em.

I was a bit lazy yesterday.  While kid was out golfing 18 with her dad, I just hung out, baked breakfast cookies, did some laundry, cleaned the place up and just putzed around.

Instead of ironing, I got in a free movie.  I know, I could have ironed and watched at the same time!

Have you checked out the free movies on your cable carrier?  I have Time Warner and there’s a Free Movies section.  This is what I chose to watch yesterday.


I really like Tim Robbins and Rachel McAdams. What a great cast and a cool story line.  If you haven’t see it yet, you might give it a go.  Free.  Nothing to lose but a couple hours right?

I spent a few minutes out on the patio.  I love my patio and really should spend more time out there.   I am afraid of the black widows though.  I have seen them many times!

I got everything watered.


Do you remember when I went to Ojai and I picked up these lavender plants up while I was there?


Still haven’t bloomed yet, maybe this year?


That fern looks a little flat because that tall tree fell on it during our last wind storm.


Its green out there and I love it!

Other random things:

I finally painted my nails.  I like this color, it goes with everything.


My hands look so old.  Are they my hands?  Really?


Then I made a quick sauce with ingredients on hand to put on my sad and pathetic leftover chicken… lunch.


I put it all in a jar and shook it up and its ready to go.

You can find great Asian sauce recipes here.

I just kind of wing it with the ingredients I have on  hand.  I am really trying to use it up what I can.  Pantry, freezer and fridge.

Lots coming up in next couple of months.  Even though I’m putting in as much OT as I can to afford it, I’m assuming I don’t have enough!  Is there ever enough when you are on a tight budget?

We have Easter, birthday, wisdom teeth, furniture, etc.

Yeah, the furniture is probably going to get put off again, I want to make sure that I have cash (of course).  The only problem with it is that I have to bite the bullet to buy it because even if I have the cash, in my brain, I know I should save it or spend it elsewhere.  But sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do!

Remember when I did that for the front door?  What a difference that made and I am not sorry I made that improvement!  It really freaked me out though for a few months until I got caught up!

I hope you all have a great day and that you are off to a good start of your week!

  1. Already got 2 loads of laundry folded, now I just have to wait until the good fairy comes and puts them away…..she sure takes a long time!!!!

    There are always expenses coming up, aren’t there? It’s so hard to get ahead when you have so many things come up that put you a couple steps back. I don’t do Easter baskets anymore since the kids are 20 & 29 – they can suck it up, but we have car registration, and we are trying to save like crazy for our trip to Mt. Rushmore in May.

  2. I love your patio garden…i don’t have a green thumb so I was very proud of myself when I grew tomatoes on my patio last year. Very very sparse compared to yours 🙂
    Gosh…May 6 & 8 is just around he corner for us, isn’t it? (speaking of birthdays). As I recall we are two days apart but the same age. No matter we have get along so well.
    Ok..we’ll get through Easter first.
    Have an awesome rest of your day.

  3. Wow, what was going on May 8th? That was also my mother’s birthday and is my SIL’s birthday!

    Your garden really is beautiful! I tend to do really well with vegetables but have a black thumb when it comes to anything else 😦

  4. I love that patio. Black widows begone, that’s an awesome spot. Your hands have character. Sensitive enough to care for a child, strong enough to dig out of a tough spot.
