Thursday Tidbits

Today has been a spend day. I paid bills and got a few groceries.

Wow, have some prices ever risen! I had thought that I would get away without spending much more than a hundred dollars (approximately 60 GBP). Did not happen. I was over by about $18.00, fruit and vegetables took the highest hike with some dairy items not far behind.

I do believe that I am well stocked up in meat, canned and frozen veggies as well as canned meats and should be able to cut my spending over the next while. Still it was a shock to get to the checkout and watch the tape add up to what it did.

I spent part of the afternoon working on my soup bowl cozies and step two is completed. All the batting is now attached to the fabric and tomorrow I hope to be able to get the darts made. Then the final assembly will take place on Saturday after the Remembrance Day ceremony at the high school.

I managed to declutter a bit today as well. I have rid my home of 7 magazines and lots of paper as well as cleaned up my email.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Price are rising over here, it's getting silly. We have to be even more careful.

  2. I know just what you mean, even when I know I've shopped to my list seeing the figure tot up can be alarming!
