I can not believe it is Friday already! So much has been happening here both personally and in the country as a whole.
I am still worried about the repercussions to our oldest son since he is now being interviewed as an expert in far right radicalization and just hoping it does not cause problems with his teaching job. I am worried about what may happen in our capital come the weekend and the arrival of the convoy from the west. Kurt is asking all those who opposed what the truckers are doing to stay well away from the protest because of the bad eggs that are now taking over. I don't know how many will listen, and be badly hurt by some of those same bad eggs. I will just have to keep praying about the situation.
On to another bit of news. Kris was going to make an offer on one of the houses he looked at in the city. So I kind of stayed glued to the phone for the details.
He offered 10K less than the asking price and today just after lunch found out his offer was accepted. So excited for him, but this means lots of banking going on in the background. I remembered when we helped our oldest with his down payment the bank wanted a letter from us stating we would not ask him to repay the money, that it was in fact a gift. I will be typing one of those up for Kris as well.
One of my blogging friends will know the area. It is on Smith Street closer to the Northgate Mall. It is also fairly close to his office so he should be able to save on fuel. Perhaps even walk on a nicer day. I also want to thank her for following Kurt on Twitter and saying what she did on the last post I made. You are an angel and sometime I really think we should meet. Perhaps when things settle down with Omicron.
I also have my bone density scan on Monday and I am keeping my fingers crossed that there is no real storm happening that day. We will leave fairly early just in case, and will stay overnight as we will meet Kris for supper and give him the cheque and the letter.
So now that all that news is out of the way. What are my Frugal Five for the week.
1. Using up leftovers for our lunches.
2. Added an extra meatless meal this week.
3. Walking (even if it is just around the house) for exercise.
4. Making sure that the draft dodgers are in front of the doors every night.
5. Looking up recipes, patterns and downloading free books online.
Still doing the regular frugal things that have become so much a habit that I can't even remember them.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
