This little kitten lost her mittens....

January 22nd, 2015 at 02:17 pm

Shucks! I left them on the train. I wouldn't mind so much, but they are the heavy-duty polar-vortex mittens I invested in last year when it was so cold. I hope that they will be in Lost & Found tonight, but I'm not counting on it.

I think I had a no-spend day yesterday. I TRIED to spend -- I stopped at Walgreen's on the way home to buy demineralized water for my PurMist, but they only had distilled. I believe there is a difference; I thought, anyway, I had better check before buying it.

I put on my only pair of SmartWool socks this morning, and it occurred to me that I should buy more, with all this Discover money to spend.... I'll get on Amazon today. I would replace my mittens, but I still have hopes I will find them tonight.

I could also buy demineralized water on Amazon, but the shipping costs as much as the water -- and I have Amazon Prime! It is one of those items that comes from a vendor that doesn't qualify for free shipping. I just can't do it!

The other night a group of us got Chinese takeout and I took home the unused rice and all the extra packets of soy sauce and sweet and sour sauce. Last night I fried the rice, along with onion, carrot and zucchini, added the flavor packets and two eggs, and had wonderful fried rice! I had enough for dinner and for lunch today. Practically free! Love doing stuff like that.

    I can't believe I've never thought to add zucchini to fried rice! Definitely trying that next time I make it.

    You would not believe how many very nice gloves we get in lost and found. The glove/hat drawer is full and overflowing ... and I just cleaned out two weeks worth on Friday.

    Please don't give up on mittens if they have not shown up tonight, sometimes it takes several days for an article to show up in Lost & Found.

    FYI: distilled water is even 'cleaner' (NO junk/minerals) than demineralized. However it is usually 1.5-2x as expensive.

    NOTE: I am a retired microbiologist & we used both, for different purposes, in my working days.
