Sunday Afternoon (in the Home of CB)

January 30th, 2017 at 12:26 pm

It was a nice, quiet Sunday. In the afternoon, I went to the library and checked out a book and an audiobook; also bought two books at the book sale ($2). Then I stopped on the way home to get my hair cut ($16).

My grandson came over briefly in the evening because they had a "ketchup emergency" so I filled a small container and sent it back with him. Would have just given him the bottle, but it's HUGE. Since I always go for the cheapest unit price.

I finished my challenging puzzle. It was a copy of the Seurat painting "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte." Even though it was only 500 pieces, the pointillistic style made the pieces very hard to distinguish from one another. Still, I enjoyed the process, and it's satisfying to have it done. I'll look at it a few days and then start another.

The weather has turned colder and snowier. I may have a longer commute this morning. I'm glad I filled up so I won't be worrying about stretching my gas.

My Florida son's birthday is coming up. I think I will just send him a check, since they are always struggling. For Christmas, I got him some bulbs for their outdoor spotlights, which I didn't think was very exciting, but it's what he had on his list. With cash, he can get anything he wants, or put it in the family budget, if it needs a boost.

My Miscellaneous Income statement came from the museum, so I can start on my taxes. I didn't dive in this weekend. I may work on it this week, if I'm not too tired after work. Today I'm going to babysit for a few hours after school, so that's all I'll get done today!

    I've found it easiest and most efficient to transfer funds from my bank account directly to DS's account at a different banking group in another city at the other end of the country. There is no charge, sums transfers immediately with a few computer strokes and totally secure. Love it for gifting occasions as they are tekkies and I'm barely keeping up with basics.

    I love that he comes to grandma's for ketchup!

    Yay for saving the day on the ketchup emergency! They knew who would help out! A number of years ago I was fixing supper and I needed a half of cup of milk to make biscuits. I had half a cup, but was short the other half. I called the neighbor and she brought her milk to the back fence and I took my measuring cup out and she helped us out. She laughed at that over and over for years to come.
