Today, was my father's death anniversary. 54 years since he died. It's been a long time, but I still remember the events like it was yesterday.
I went to the office in the morning and had a productive day. I debated whether to go to the Farmers Market or not, but decided not to. Treats stop being treats when they are had more or less every week.
On my way home from work, I put gas to the car; $30 worth of gas, which was selling for $2.63 per gallon.
After that, I went to the pharmacy to pick up another medication refill (I had received a text saying it was ready for pick up, in the morning). When I collected it, I made it a point to open the vial to check on the contents; I asked the sales clerk how many pills I was supposed to have (90) and reminded her of the previous visit, when I received only 30. She offered to put the pill through their pill counter to double check the number of pills and recounted them for me. She verified there were 90 pills. I accepted her word for it, but came home and recounted them to make sure.
After the pharmacy, I decided to go to the dollar store next door for a few items:
|July 20 Groceries|
2 mangoes = $2.00
1 can of low fat condensed milk = $1.00 ($2.59 at the ethnic store; $1.69 at the grocery store)
1 box flan mix = $1.00
Total = $4.61
|July 20 Grocery Receipt|
Amount spent on groceries so far in July = $34.21 + $2.59 + $35.43 + $14.30 + $4.61 = $91.14
Amount left in the July grocery budget = $103.82 - $91.14 = $12.68
I went to the regular grocery store, too, but for something non-grocery, so didn't include that in my grocery budget.
Someone came to see what I was doing, when I was taking pictures of the groceries:
|"Whatcha doing, Mummy?"|
After I came home and had my tea, I sat down to sew my quilt. The squares are kept right sides together and sewn with a 1/4 inch seam:
|The First Two Squares Sewn Together|
Row by row, they are sewn and the seams are ironed:
|The First Row Started|
I sewed the rows and attached four of them together:
Plans for tomorrow include going to the lab for my blood test and a trip to the fabric store for the quilt batting.
Today, I am grateful for:
- All of you participating and letting me know which is your favorite layout!
- A productive day at the office
- A safe drive home
- Gas for the car
- The correct number of pills!
How was your Thursday? Isn't it funny how we all tended to favor the same layout?
