But first, I went to the gas station to fill up; I put $26 worth of gas at $2.51/gallon. Then, because I felt the drive to the gas station wasn't long enough, I drove to the grocery store. I thought I'll get myself some frozen corn because I was out of it and maybe another couple of bread rolls. But the rolls in the bakery section didn't look too good, so I didn't buy any.

I also walked around the grocery store, but didn't find anything else I wanted to buy. So I paid for my two items (1 bag frozen corn = $1.00; 1 can biscuit dough = $.75) and came home. My total came to $1.75.

Amount spent on groceries in October = $73.23 + $126.93 + $16.34 + $1.75 = $218.25
Amount left in budget = $261.59 - 218.25 = $43.34
I baked the biscuits once I got home and had two of them for dinner (along with leftover steak, from the other night). I also cooked the rest of the strawberries before they spoiled and made strawberry syrup; I ate some of it with yogurt for dessert.

Today, I am grateful for:
- A warm, if cloudy day
- The three drops of rain that fell in the afternoon!
- An invitation to a party (a cousin's daughter's "sweet 16")
- Chatting with an aunt
- Video chatting with my daughter
How was your day? Where would you have driven if you needed to drive but didn't have a particular place you needed to go?
