$20 Snowflake

January 26th, 2017 at 02:41 pm

I was surprised today to see a $20 credit on our credit card from Ooma. I thought I was going to get that last month, but when I didn't see it I figured the referral didn't pan out. But it did! That snowflake is going towards tuition.

I spent $6 on a soda, two avocados and chicken broth. I was going to make a mushroom risotto tonight, until I realized I didn't buy the parmesan cheese for it! To avoid another trip to the store today, I decided to just make fish and stuffed portobello mushrooms for dinner. And of course, we still have a lot of salad to eat as well.

I did some more sewing today, just because it made me happy. I'm focusing on feeling good rather than feeling bad. Part of that means doing things I like and avoiding the news and Facebook that make me feel bad. I've seen far too many people thinking their point of view is the only way to think, which leads me to see them as uncaring and unkind. That isn't how I want to think!! So avoidance is best at this point. I think all people have the ability to be kind, compassionate, forgiving, accepting and patient. And I'm going to focus on that as much as I can in the coming weeks and months.

    I was going to make broccoli cheddar soup, and realized I didn't have any milk -- not even powdered milk. I ended up making a wrap with broccoli, cream cheese and bacon bits, which was pretty good!

    I have been turning off the news, too. I'm not avoiding it, but when something upsets me, I turn it off, and I instantly feel better.

    My finger is getting a workout with the "delete post" button on Facebook. The policy is if the post is political, it gets deleted. Don't care about which side or the content. The posters are all too shrill for me.

    I decided to not do risotto because all the recipes I found used wine. That would make it a very expensive recipe - unless I made a lot of risotto....

    @FT, I actually think you could leave the wine out. I made it tonight, and the wine is really not the important part IMO. So if you really want it, make it and skip the wine.

    That's good to know. I wasn't sure if that was important to the creaminess of it or something.
