It is too cold in the new basement for it to dry in a few hours, so I popped it on my clothes horse, close-ish to the fire where I knew it would dry a bit faster. I am going to pick up the door trim this week from this store This is the only place I have been able to find trim to sort of match our house.
It's family day here in Ontario. Bit of a strange holiday if you ask me, because half the people don't get the day off. Dh is working, as the factory where he is contracted out too don't get it as they already get "X" amount of paid days off that's allowed??? Future son-in-law works for the Federal Government and as this is a Provincial Government holiday they don't get it. Ds, he's working, no idea why as he's a chartered accountant for a private firm. I'm guessing that they're super busy and that's why. I actually know they're super busy, but don't know the reason for them not getting the day off. Dd is off and is going shopping.....she is her mother's daughter. And me........well as one day seems to be like another I guess I won't be celebrating family day either. Although dd did ask me to go shopping with her, but as I have no money I hate going shopping when I have no money, plus I have a lot to do this week!!
My contribution for Valentine's Day.....I made a sherry trifle and put heart shaped sprinkles on the top of it!
It was my classic sherry trifle recipe. Cake, broken up in the bottom of the dish. Drizzle sherry over the cake and let it soak in. Make a jello/jelly and pour over the top of the cake. Make a custard, let it cool and put that on top of the jello layer when it has set. Whip up some cream and put that on top of the custard, put sprinkles on the top, and then dig in!!!!!
Did you remember to put your money in your daily savings pot today?
Today's Money Saving Tip:
One of the easiest ways to save for a particular goal is to include visual reminders of that goal around your house.
Want to retire to a remote island at the age of 55? Place some pictures of exotic beaches on your refrigerator or bathroom mirror. The picture will stick out like a sore thumb and constantly remind you of what you are saving for. This tactic can work for almost any of your financial goals including cars, homes, college education, bags full of cash, etc.
