The News From Here

October 8th, 2009 at 10:15 pm

I received a $3 Pinecone Research check today! I always love cash in the mail. Smile

I bought groceries to the tune of $146! Yikes. Yes, a little high, but it does include wine, kleenex, toilet paper, soap and hair products. I expect the food to last through payday on the 15th!

I had two no spend days on Monday and Tuesday. I didn't realize it until I was entering transactions in the checkbook today. It is good to have those!

Our weather is getting very cold. We are expecting our first hard freeze Saturday night. I actually turned the heat on last Saturday. It was 63 degress in here! Luckily it isn't running all the time yet!!

I have more items to list on craigslist. I just need to get my act together and take pictures!

I've been getting exercise in everyday since Sunday. I feel pretty good. I just wish I didn't buy those M & M's at the grocery store today! Ugh.

That's the news from here!

    Yeah, no heat yet here but I think the renters below me have there heat on. Means very low heat bills for me. We have the most efficient apartment in the winter Southern exposure so when the suns up it comes right through our windows and sliding doors. In the summer the 3rd story balcony shades our apartment from the high sun.

    Last winter we actually had to open the windows to let our apartment breathe.

    Central IA here.

    You're title reminded me of a book I read a few months ago "newes from the dead" (about a woman accused of infantcide in the early 1600's, was hanged, but didn't die. ) Smile
