Saturday at home

February 9th, 2013 at 10:13 am

I love days where I don't have to go anywhere.

Today is a day spent catching up at home. I'm doing laundry, planning menus, and watching some basketball and hockey. I already ran on the treadmill (yay! exercise done!), and went out and refilled the bird houses. The snow here is about a foot deep and I don't like filling them in the dark when I get home from work, so they either get done before work (if I have time--HA!) or the weekend.

I planned my menu to use up what I have in the house. I made my grocery list with only those things I actually NEED, and I think that's what I'll be doing for the rest of the month. Maybe I'll make a dent in the overstuffed freezer then. And stay within my budget.

Since we have no plans to go anywhere, I'm hoping for a NSD.

Yesterday I spent $5 to go to stick and puck at the ice arena and worked on my hockey stops. I'm still learning how to ice skate and how to handle the puck. It was very busy last night, so I felt in the way--but as of now they don't have a "beginners only" stick and puck, so I'm out there with the real skaters. Oh well.

I also spent $5 at the grocery store for bread for lunches and pineapple for the meal I'm making on Sunday. I should have leftovers to eat for lunches at work this week.

    It's nice that you feed the birds.

    Good plan for NSD, your menu plan will continue to pay off in money saving benefits for both dinners and take-to-work lunches for the rest of the month. These small changes will be big steps towards your 2013 goals. How will you fund your summer course? I found it incredibly rewarding to daily dump change in an ordinary jar to fund a special summer project.

    I save money in a jar too! I turn it in every six months and put that amount into my savings. Smile
    I'm lucky about the summer course--I work for a university, so my tuition is free. I just have to come up with the $$$ for my books. I love that benefit of working there! I should someday do a post about all the things I love about my job.

    You are one of a very small minority that love your work and likely look forward to Monday's. I think it's great to post the things you love about your job. Getting your thoughts on paper to post, even blog will be helpful when you participate in your evaluation...whatever system they use. I hope you note accomplishments and anything of added value for your organization.
