Harvey and I went out this afternoon to pick up paint for our bed room. Surprise it was on sale and we had a gift card that made the purchase cost us nothing. That is wonderful as paint (at least the ones we like) are expensive.
It was a beautiful and sunny day so our drapes were wide open to take advantage of the natural light and heat from the sun.
It was also a day of using things up. I managed to use up an onion and 4 fairly thick slices of cooked frozen ham for our supper. This is the second time that I have managed to stretch a small amount of meat into at least 2 meals for each of us. There are a few things that I would change with this recipe and because I substituted ingredients I am sure that the taste was a bit off. It wasn't bad, just not tweeked enough for our tastes.
I also mended a bra..... You know those silly underwires that seem to work their way through the end of the pocket. Well gone are the days that I would toss it as being of no earthly use to me any more. I pushed it back into its home and slip stitched the opening shut. I should be able to get a few more months wear out of the darn thing.
The rest of the day was spent cleaning the drawers and shelves in our bed room. I managed to remove a few items. Some of which will be recycled, some of which were tossed, and some put aside for donation.
Worked on my cross stitch, read for a bit (finished one novel and started another) and am going to be busy this evening working on my knitting.
Ahhh, the perfect day. Frugal and fun.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
