No-Spend Day

January 4th, 2019 at 04:40 am

Yesterday was a no-spend day.

I made a batch of granola, and I finished putting away all the Christmas stuff, at the same time reorganizing the big closet that contains it.

I went to the library and checked out two new books to read, both "most wanted" so I only have a week -- no renewals. But I already read almost half of one of them -- the new Reacher book, "Past Tense." The other is Kate Atkinson's "Transcription."

I also watched the thriller "Bird Box" on Netflix, which put me in a jangly mood. Not too long afterwards, I watched the news and saw coverage of a horrific accident on I-75 near Gainesville. Since I have one son living there, and the other heading home on that highway, I immediately started texting to make sure everyone was okay. Everyone was. That put me in an attitude of gratitude. When our loved ones are safe, we really have it all.

The insurance payment hit. I had enough of a cushion in checking that I didn't even need to transfer anything from savings.

My son & family are due home sometime today, so this is my last day of caring for their cat, who is missing them terribly, and lets me know every time I go over there to feed him.

Today should be a quiet day, with no particular chore to do and nowhere I have to go. Yep, this is retirement at its finest!

I'm looking forward to a warming trend this weekend, and also the Bears game! It's been so long since we've been in the playoffs -- the city is really excited!

    Glad you are enjoying the books.

    Sorry about the movie and then the news report, but glad everyone was OK.
