Good Morning!

August 20th, 2015 at 06:40 am

It is so cool today, it's like a fresh, fall day! I'm actually wearing jeans and a long-sleeved tee, and I'm planning a nice, long walk.

I took a 50-minute walk yesterday, but despite the temperature drop, it was still a bit muggy. I can tell that today will be delightful walking weather. I'm going to walk to the library and return "Boyhood," and maybe walk down by the lake.

I thought "Boyhood" was a good movie, and, of course, I love the concept of filming it over real years. It resonated with me in many ways, as I was a single mom. I didn't marry two alcoholics, but I did have an alcoholic father, so that resonated with me, too. It was a little uncomfortable to watch sometimes, but a good lesson on how time heals, and the importance of continuing to try to do your best in the face of adversity.

Tomorrow I travel, so today I pack. However, since I'm taking my laundry, I'm going to pack light. I'm packing the outfit I want to wear on my lunch date, but otherwise, there will be plenty to choose from in the laundry!

I found a penny on my walk yesterday, but overall coin-finding has dwindled.

Finances are on automatic. Since I have exceeded my budget this month, my next goal is to come in under next month -- enough to offset the overage. When I get my first SS check in September, I will feel relieved. I hate to be spending my savings.

I got a $3 coupon from CVS (birthday gift), so I'm going to go find something I need for $3. I'm mad at myself because Corner Bakery sent me a coupon for a free muffin, and I let it expire!

Today's menu:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with walnuts and cranberries
Lunch: Fried rice (leftover)
Dinner: Peanut soup and crescent rolls

    I also really liked that aspect of Boyhood - how they kept the same actors and filmed them as they really did grow and mature!
