Friday Review

Another somewhat foggy morning.  But the commute to work was not too bad, although an accident closer to downtown caused some congestion. 

It was a short work week for me with Monday being a holiday and Tuesday being another day off.  I think 3-day work weeks are just fine!  LOL.

Being home on Tuesday meant I was able to get the better part of the weekly house cleaning done then.  I dusted and vacuumed and cleaned the bathrooms.  As a result, I didn't have to do any house cleaning during the work week.  I watered the front garden on Monday and watered the back garden on Thursday.  This watering schedule seems to work out well for me.  At least, during the winter months.  In the summer, when the temperatures soar to 90F and above, I usually water the front garden, with its south and west exposure, twice a week. 

On the meal planning front, things worked out very well.  The chicken stir-fry and the shrimp curry I made, along with a lasagna I had in the freezer provided sufficient lunches and dinners for the week.  I shall pull out a packet of chicken curry from the freezer for some of next week's meals. 

Spending-wise, the week was mixed.  I paid two bills, including daughter's rent for March.  But those are planned expenses, and budgeted for.  Other than those two bills, however, there was no spending.  Frugal activities included air drying all laundry, picking oranges from the garden, baking a cake from stuff in the pantry, borrowing books from the library.

In other areas of my life, I chatted with two friends, had daily video chats with my daughter, and interacted with colleagues.  I managed to get a couple of errands done during the week, including requesting and receiving a new yard waste bin to replace the one with the missing lid (lid broke off).  I did some weeding in the garden, read, and sewed.

It was a good week, I think.

How was your week?
