Found Nine Cents!

June 19th, 2014 at 01:49 pm

It was all in pennies, in three different places.

Now if only I would start finding bigger coins again!

I almost didn't make the train today. I couldn't get up, couldn't face washing my hair, didn't want to carry packing material (I have to mail some packages today). It was all wah, wah, wah, poor me. I wanted to drive, then I wanted to buy breakfast. I'm happy to report that I caught the train on time, washed my hair (though I still have to touch it up with the flat iron), and I ate oatmeal at work. The packing material wasn't that bulky and I carried it fine. Everything that seemed so hard, wasn't. So I saved money on gas and saved money on breakfast.

Last night I made another homemade salad dressing, using the ends of some chipotle and ranchero sauce, along with mayonnaise, oil and vinegar. It's a little thin, so I may add some Greek yogurt tonight. Then I scratched salad dressing off my grocery list!

I'm attending a virtual business meeting today for my professional organization. I wasn't going to, but then I saw that all attendees will have a chance to win a scholarship to next year's national conference in New Orleans. Well, that made it worthwhile! What a good ploy to get people to take part!

    You're reading I Capture the Castle?! The Mortmains are my favorite family!

    I am loving the book! I saw the movie on Netflix a few years ago and just found it confusing -- but the book is wonderful.
