The Week So Far

Monday:   After morning coffee, I showered, got dressed and headed to Orlando to visit one of my favorite thrift stores.  I spent $32 dollars on items to list in my eBay store. Tolls and mileage are a deduction.  I managed to list 10 items this evening, worked out with my daughter and walked a mile with the dog before dark.   Dinner was Chili Dogs and my son in law bought and prepared dinner and the grandkids cleaned the kitchen.

Tuesday:  Morning coffee on the porch was followed by finishing up spraying painting a wrought iron table for the front porch.  It was my birthday yesterday, and I celebrated it all day. My husband had flowers sent to the house, I went to lunch with an old friend from the animal shelter and she gave me flowers too! I heard from both my boys, and my daughter and her family gave me a Roomba.  We plugged it in today and tried it out.  Pretty cool little gadget! My son in law made dinner (tacos) and we finished up with cake from Publix.  All in all, it was a great day. 

Wednesday:   Today was a  regular day around the house.  More spray painting of different tables, a trip to Target for a few groceries, listed 10 items on eBay and fixed dinner, chicken fettuccine and broccoli.

I remembered to use my Red Card for my 5% discount, every little bit helps.

I was going to mow the yard today, but the temps were going to be 115 degrees with the heat index.

 The grass will just have to grow and wait until this heat wave is over.  Even with the almost daily rain showers, there is no relief from the heat.  The AC has been running non-stop and the power bill reflects that.

After my trip to Target, I made hard boiled eggs in my rice steamer, for me, this is the best and easiest way to make boiled eggs. After I put them in the ice bath, I dry them off, leave the shell on and keep them in a bowl in the fridge.  When I pack them for lunch, I then peel what I need.

My husband is off the rest of the week, he is going to work on completing the installation of our whole house generator. The generator is wired up to the house, and the gas line has been installed from the road ( where the main line is) so he will have to connect the generator to the gas meter. It will be nice to have that project completed.  Hurricane season started June 1 but typically the storms are not active here until about August. Hopefully, the season will be uneventful for everyone.


  1. It sounds like a wonderful birthday. Happy Birthday!

  2. Wow I would love to have a generator like that.

    1. It wasn't cheap, but the peace of mind it provides is worth it. One of those bills I still have to pay off lol
