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!
