A Gray Day

November 12th, 2017 at 08:03 pm

I went to the gym this morning, but otherwise it's been a quiet day so far. I don't expect to spend anything.

I have about $100 to last the next ten days. I'd like to spend as little of that as possible. I know that I will be eating out for my grandson's birthday on Wednesday, but it will be at a fairly inexpensive place. On Tuesday, I will get a free bagel breakfast at PF.

Though my pantry and freezer are emptying out, I think I will have enough food to last. Today I made a chicken/broccoli/cheese combo that I spooned over mashed potatoes for lunch. There's plenty left over and I think that will become soup in the coming days. For dinner I'm going to make pepperoni pizzas with tortillas.

I'd love to see The Orient Express, but I will wait. I'm trusting it will still be around after Thanksgiving. I'd also love to see Wonder with the grandsons. If they mention they want to go, I'll spend some of my remaining $$$ on that.

I'm holding off on the remaining Christmas shopping I have to do until after pay day. It will be Amazon shopping.

I'm feeling a little blue, but I suppose that's normal. The weather, which is definitely gray, is not helping. I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving to boost my spirits.

    Aw CB I hope you feel a little better soon.

    Hope you feel more upbeat. Sorry you are blue.

    Are you a big Agatha Christie fan? I've seen Murder on the Orient Express with Peter Ustinanov and with David Suchet and I think Suchet is more appropriate as Poirot.

    There was also the one with Albert Finney as Poirot. I am not a huge Agatha Christie fan -- too unrealistic for my taste -- but this version of the movie appears to be beautifully filmed and is full of famous actors. I guess I'm mostly curious.

    Our meals are similar. I have a chicken, broccoli, cheese casserole defrosting for tomorrow, and tortilla pizzas are on the menu for dinner. I usually like to make pizza bake, but I only have 10 or so pepperonis, so I figure they'll stretch further on tortillas.

    Hope you enjoy the movie, CB! We are Poirot and Miss Marple lovers.
