Monday was such a busy day for me, as I am writing this on Monday night I am pooped.
Got up did my usual of having my breakfast while I checked my emails, blog, got my morning swag buck and whatever else needed done on the computer. Had a shower and then cleaned the bathrooms. Put a load of laundry in the washer. Rang Linda at work to go over some stuff. Cleaned out some of the ashes in the fire. Took them out, brought in some logs, rang dh to see how he was. Hung the clothes on the clothes horse to dry, and did some tidying up.
I went to get the car out of the garage, which is always a joy, as the door sticks when its cold, so kicked that a few times.............it's truly the best way to get it open and it gets rid of some frustration!!! Had to shovel in front of the garage door first as snow had blown in front of it. Warmed up the car ready to go to town. By this time it's 9:30am.
Went to town had to go to Shopper's Drug Mart as there is a referral event on until Wednesday.........if anyone wants a referral just let me know, you get a bonus 5,000 points when you spend $20, which believe me is simple to do. Make sure you also purchase a $25 gift card if you do decide to do this, as you will get an extra 250 points. Then I headed to Zehrs to pick up some groceries, and then to First Choice to get my hair trimmed. I was back at home by 10:45am.
Put all the shopping away and put on some eggs to boil. Hunted out all my stuff for my quilting class. Washed the dishes in the kitchen sink and did some more tidying up. Had lunch, hard boiled egg sandwiches, and watched Eastenders at the same time. As soon as that was over, headed for my quilting class. The class was on how to quilt as you go. Basically you sandwich together your block, batting and backing and quilt it all. Then there is a neat way of stitching them all together.
Had to put gas in the car, as it was on empty.....$50 later :0O it was $1 a litre. Called in the vets to pick up some more pills for Molly. Headed home unpacked the car, had to put winder washer fluid in the car, its a job I can actually do on my own. Put the car in the garage, and no I didn't kick the door to shut it...........maybe I should and finally sat down for a bit.
I don't feel as though I have stopped all day. I have no plans on moving from the house over the next couple of days as the house is dust city, so want to get some cleaning done.
Did you remember to put your money in your pot today for the Daily Savings Club?
Today's Money Saving Tip:
Cut back on the convenience foods – fast foods, microwave meals, and so on. Instead of eating fast food or just nuking some prepackaged food when you get home, try making some simple and healthy replacements that you can take with you. An hour’s worth of preparation one weekend can give you a ton of cheap and handy meals that will end up saving you a lot of cash and not eat into your time when you’re busy.
Now for the question (s). As I said I am thinking of doing some changes to the blog and wanted your opinion on something. What do you think of ads on blogs? Are you more inclined to visit a blog if they have a giveaway on it? Do you prefer blogs that deal with one subject, like cooking or gardening, or do you like blogs with a bit of everything on it? Would you like to see some more 50 + 1 recipe threads, and if so on what?
A fellow blogger and I are brainstorming on how to reach out to a wider audience without losing our appeal.
