I have been suffering with allergies for the past couple of weeks. I am ready to pull off my nose and the only thing I can think that is causing them are the Poinsettia's I have in the house. I keep forgetting to buy some allergy pills, but on Thursday I found some Benedryl pills in the back of the cupboard and they weren't expired. I took a couple around 5 pm on Thursday, by 6:30 pm I felt terrible. I had all the symptoms of a migraine, but I had no headache. I could barely keep my eyes open, so went to bed at 6:30 pm. I slept right through until 6 am. All day on Friday I was about as much use as a chocolate fireguard!!!
I went grocery shopping and honestly don't remember how I managed, as I felt so dopey. I did cash in my points at Shopper's Drug Mart and stocked up on dh's Glucosamine and Chondroitin and now have a six month supply. So instead of paying $110.49, I only paid $10.49. I popped into Zehrs and thought I'd pick a few things up and ended up spending $71.94. Mind you nearly $20 of that was allergy pills. My final stop was Sobey's where I got my best deals. Cheese Whiz was on sale on Friday for $2.49 - $1.50 coupon, so only 99 cents. Spent $9.95 there, so all in all spent $92.38. I have $20 worth of gift cards for Canadian Tire, so am planning on picking up Maxwell House ground coffee which they have on special Saturday and Sunday for $6.97 a can. If I can get three cans that will last us six months and only cost me 91 cents when I cash in my gift cards. So I am at least $20 over my weekly budget this week.........
I am going to work on my lists of things to do and goals this weekend, so I am all ready for the New Year. I have been putting my silver change into my sealed pot and any spare loonies and toonies are going into another pot ready for gardening season.
Have you made any plans for 2013 yet?
Here is the scarf I am knitting at the moment.
Had a question for anyone who knits. Do you have something you put on the end of your needles when you put your knitting down so the loops don't come off?
Finally a photo looking north of our property, lots of snow.
