On to the real point of this post, the groceries that I snagged yesterday. I'm going to do this post in "high speed", so I may or may not list the prices and coupons used and all that stuff.
Whole Trip OOP: $25.50
Daniel got home from work shortly after I got home from shopping, and I showed him what I'd gotten. He said "Well, you got a lot of brownies and a lot of vegetables" and I said "The two most important food groups! Chocolate and vegetables!!" :D
I loved supper last night - Hamburgers ($1.67), Seasoning (FREE), Vegetable ($.50), plus condiments and bread already on hand. DINNER FOR $2.17!!! (no leftovers)
On another random note, Monday evening we had this twice:
Nope, it was not snow.
The faded ones are either mid-air or starting to melt, the bright white one had just landed. It was large-pea sized stuff. I have only seen hail a very few times in my life (including Monday!), so it was pretty exciting for me :) Both times it only hailed for maybe 1 or 2 minutes.
But I'm loving this spring weather :) We had thunderstorms Monday AND Tuesday!! Don't tell my Mother-In-Law, but I LOVE thunderstorms and would've sat outside and watched them roll in if I'd had time to. The wind, oh I LOVE the wind that they bring! And the smell of coming rain :) And watching the lightening and hearing the thunder! I assure you that I'm not a complete idiot - when the storm "arrives" and it's lightening right over me, I do not stay outside. But I love to watch storms come!
Today it's one of those "big puffy cloud" days with patches of blue sky poking through. Looks like another good day to hang some laundry out. And speaking of, I really need to get off here and get to work. My plan of attack for the house today is this: spend ONE HOUR in each room cleaning like a mad woman. Not my personal every-day preference, but I figure I ought to make pretty good progress this way. Unfortunately, since the lady called Mon and wanted to come look at the house this week, I have neglected every other part of the house and have focused on getting the spare bedroom packed up and more decent. It still has a lot of stuff in it, but I think I can probably get it close to finished today. Might even (hope to) get the bed set up and made!!! THAT will be a first for us, having a real, honest to goodness, second bed in the house!
Update: They (whoever "they" are) ARE coming to look at the house this evening! At 6pm! it's 11:30 and I'm about 3/4 the way done with the kitchen... got the frige all cleaned off and just need to do the counters and sweep & wash the floor. Dusting the tops of the cupboards will come after I have everything else done. Haha!
(and I still don't have a menu plan for this week. I'll probably have it Saturday after I know what we've eaten all week. I'll have to think about supper for tonight, any ideas?)
