Catching up at home........

With being out and about all weekend, Monday was a time to catch up around the house, including catching up with laundry.  I did two loads on Monday and I have a load to do again today.  Luckily the weather is so nice and I can get them dried outside.  However that means a pile of ironing to do as well.

One thing I wanted to mention was that I have maxed out on my $5 Amazon e-cards with Swagbucks this month, which is good and there is still a couple of weeks to go in the month.  I will just save them up as I know with the good weather I won't be on the computer as much.

I didn't get around to posting about my grocery shopping this week, I went on Friday.  I spent $67.76 and had saving of $16.12, to bring my monthly totals up to $201.89 spent and $45.63 saved.  I didn't stock up on anything in particular and there were no great sales, however it was nice to go grocery shopping on my own again!!!  Oh and I bought something I haven't bought in years Vachon Flakies they are so good, but awful messy when you eat them!!

This is a short post as I am pooped from the weekend and the hot weather we're having..........

Hi Gill!

Thank you, yes, I did get your email! I went to the Swagbucks site and it turns out I already have an account... It's been that long since I've used it, apparently. I used your suggestions of playing games and NOSO and earned myself a couple more bucks. Thank you!

Enjoy your cakes, too. I remember the caramel ones. I used to love those!

I have a student who brings a flakie everyday for his lunch. They really take me back because I used to eat them when I was in highschool! (many many moons ago!)

I can just imagine how great it feels to be able to do stuff on your own! I bet you feel like a bird that has been set free.

Wow, I didn't know Vachon made those - we always had the caramel cakes (Ah Caramel) and the Half Lune/Moons!
