Weekend Trip

April 13th, 2015 at 04:41 pm

My weekend trip to Michigan was very cheap! I spent $28 on gas and $8 on food! My brother not only fed me at home, but insisted on buying dinner when we went out. I think he is unduly worried about my imminent retirement.

I also went out to lunch with my former professor and he paid for that as well. On the way out I saw a dime on the pavement and handed it over to him as my "contribution." (Hope he found it amusing and not silly!) We had a really good talk and I hope this is a conversation that will continue a long time!

The weather was beautiful. It was not warm enough to sit on the deck, but it was warm enough to walk to the restaurant, and Sunday was a great day for antiquing. And I didn't spend a thing, though I had a blast looking everything over!

For the drive, I checked out an audiobook from the libary, which I am still enjoying. I'll have to drive around some more to finish it! (Or I could listen to it on the Bose, I'll bet) Smile

Now I have to do some catching up on grocery shopping and laundry. Small price to pay for such a nice weekend.

    I love my audiobooks, too! I'm back in school now with a major to do list and I'm desperately trying to finish up Ruth Rendell's "Harm Done" so I can get serious about school work! Sounds like a lovely time. We like Michigan a lot!

    Oh, I really like Ruth Rendell, and I don't think I've read "Harm Done." Thanks for the tip!

    It's one of the more recent Reg Wexford novels, and I think was published in 2000? I also finished reading the best book she has written ("The Chimney Sweeper's Son") under the name Barbara Vine. If you haven't read that, I would highly recommend it.

    Are you counting the dime as part of your "found money" tally? Smile

    Thanks, Laura, I love Barbara Vine, too! Smile

    Other Laura, yes, I am counting the dime. I also counted it as spending for eating out!
