Yesterday I went to PetSmart and spent $33 on cat food and kitty litter, as well as feeder blocks for the fish. It's been a spendy month for pet supplies, but I hope I'm done.

I have a 48-lb. box of kitty litter in the trunk of my car. It was a good deal -- $4 off and a $3 coupon to boot -- and it is the brand I like. But there's no way I can get it up the stairs. I'll have to enlist the help of my son.

This morning I went to Jewel and got two free MyMixx items -- a nutrition bar and ice cream bars -- and I got 10 other items as well: sourdough bread, cookies, laundry detergent, a box of wine, apricots, dried cranberries, celery, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. It was $48.

I haven't bought wine in quite a while, but now that I am off the statin, I can imbibe again. I only drink 5 oz. in the evening. It's good for my heart, so they say. It's also good for my spirit! Buying a box that I keep in the fridge is the cheapest way to go.

I also haven't bought cookies in a while, but it's too hot to bake, and I find myself trolling the kitchen looking for a sweet bite after meals. The trick is to keep it down to a bite.

I did a load of laundry yesterday, which involved three trips up and down the stairs. I also bicycled on the stationary bike at the gym for a half hour, and just getting out involved another trip up and down the stairs. Anyway, it was too much, both knees are aching. I know I should not cease exercise, but I'm having trouble finding the happy medium between rest and exercise.

As I recall from my other bout with knee pain, it was finally time that did the healing.

I got all my Amazon items delivered yesterday. I'm especially pleased with the cookie cutters -- one in the shape of an eagle, one in the shape of a cat's head. At Christmastime, I'm going to make cookies for the grandsons -- one is into birds, the other, cats. I already have one shaped like a fleur de lis. That will form cookies for my ex and his wife, who like to travel in France. Cheap gifts, but pleasing, I hope.

I still have two DVD's to watch. They are due on Monday, but I'd like to return them tomorrow, when the parking is free. So I may watch them both today. I already watched The Dressmaker, which was a little strange and dark, but I pretty much enjoy anything Kate Winslet does.

    I keep seeing ads for the Dressmaker on Earnhoney. I'm glad to hear a review of it - dark tells me to not watch it. Smile

    Kroger had a free Friday download and I got a Gatorade bar of some sort. It will go in the basket at church for the food pantry, but hey, it was free and I'm sure someone will enjoy it. You get a lot of good deals on the MyMixx.

    Cookies really aren't cheap when you think of the sugar, flour, and all, plus your labor. You are very thoughtful and plan well.
