Light Spending

March 2nd, 2018 at 06:38 am

Light spending yesterday. I spent $12 at Aldi for flour, salad, cheese dip, croutons, and walnuts. The walnuts were half the cost! But I always like to have walnuts on hand, and I use them in salads quite a bit. In the late afternoon/evening I had two movies to see (3 Billboards, Phantom Thread) and I got a snack at McDonald's in between for $2. I also did a $1.50 load of laundry.

I really need to make bread, but I was tired yesterday and I didn't get it done. I hope to do that today, after gym and another small shopping trip. I also need to clean the fish tank. I noticed the filter had slowed to a trickle the other day and the water was cloudy. I installed the new filter I had on hand. The flow is much better, but the water still hasn't cleared up. I know it is probably bacterial bloom rather than dirt, but cleaning can only help.

And I have more laundry to do.

Funny how all these little things fill up your day when you're retired.

Two more movies today, starting at 4 pm: Lady Bird and Dunkirk.

    There are days I wonder how I got everything done when I worked. Enjoy your movies. Sounds like a blast!

    I'd love to hear what you think of Ladybird. That was one I wanted to see.

    Though I'm not retired my days are so busy, I think the same thing .

    I enjoyed Lady Bird, but I wasn't blown away. I think I expected to like it more than I actually did. Not that I have any complaints about it, in particular, but I have been more engaged by some of the more dramatic movies I have seen this week.

    What did you think of 3 Billboards? I don't even know what it's really about, but it sure caught my attention when I saw part of a trailer.

  6. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Ah ok. Then I'll just wait for it to come out on netflix, etc.

  7. CB in the City Says:

    3 Billboards -- it was well done, but hard to watch. Violent and depressing; most of the characters quite flawed. It does have its moments, however, and the surprising redemption of one of the worst characters was affirming.

    Thanks CB. I can see why it would be hard to watch.
