Dribs and Drabs

January 25th, 2022 at 05:53 pm

It seems like I've been spending in dribs and drabs all month.  Just when I think I'm done, something else pops us that I need.  I think I am not doing such a good job of monitoring my household inventory lately.

Anyway, I had to pop out yesterday and buy light bulbs at Home Depot ($8) and aquarium filter pads at PetSmart ($20 - value pack).  It was getting dark and there were snowplows all over -- plus towing trucks.  Even though everyone had been warned, there were so many who parked on streets designated for plowing.  I came home about 40 minutes before the plowing ban ended, and saw some of my neighbors get towed away. So I got back in the car and went to McDonalds for dinner ($3) -- ate in the car in a plow-free neighborhood, and when I got home again all was clear.  You know it's winter when plowing rules your life!

Today it is bitterly cold -- temperature was 4 degrees this morning, with a wind chill factor of 10 below. So I'm not going out today. I may make a quick run to the garbage dumpster -- that's all.

I'll be making potato soup later on -- well, soon!  It's going to be a good day. Smile
