Today was a bit cloudy and cooler than the past couple of days. Not cold, but in the low 70s rather than the upper 80s. And it even drizzled a little in the evening! Not enough to do any good; I'll still need to water the garden, tomorrow.
Today, I went to the office and spent most of the morning attending a meeting. The rest of the day passed quickly enough.
On the way home, I put gas to the car. Gas has gone up to $3.25 per gallon at this particular station (one of the cheapest stations in my neighborhood); I put $30 worth of gas and it should last me until the end of next week. Currently, I drive approximately 40 miles a day during the work week, just commuting to work and back. It wasn't too long ago that I used to drive approximately 100 miles a day, and used to spend $100 a week on gas (when gas prices were higher than they are now).
Breakfast was yogurt and granola (today was the "sell by date" on the discounted yogurts and today I ate the last of the 4 containers I bought); lunch was rice, shrimp curry and sauted cabbage (finished what I had cooked; need to think of another vegetable to cook for the rest of the week); an orange for dessert; cookies for afternoon snack; dinner was pork chops and corn, with chocolate covered raisins for dessert.
I had a lovely, relaxed evening. Had a chat on the phone with one of my friends and wrote to another. Video chatted with my daughter. And read a bit more of the decluttering book.
I looked through today's mail and the grocery ads. This week's grocery specials include apples at $.39/lb., tangerines at 3 lbs./$1.00, pears for $.49/lb., chicken drumsticks for $.79/lb., and red onions for $.20/lb. These prices are at one of the ethnic grocery stores, not the chainstore supermarket. So, I think I shall shop at the ethnic grocery store, this week.
How was your Wednesday?
Your grocery finds sounds good.ReplyDelete
I really hate to see gas prices going back up.. eeeh..We are at 2.37 gallon, however , we had gone to 1.89 gallon.. Praying it wont go back to the nearly $4.
Hope you have a blessed weekend. Judy
The gas price reduction was good while it lasted, wasn't it? Hope you have a lovely weekend, too. Thanks for commenting.Delete
