Odds and Ends
I continue to forge on in finding ways to save money and such. I got an unexpected surprise at the grocery store today when I snagged a 5 lb. box of Clementine tangerines for $1.99 and I was able to get 4 boxes of Rice Krispies for 50 cents each after coupons. Another great deal.
The sun has been shining for the past week and I cannot believe how good it feels to have the sun streaming through the windows of my house. Of course with the sun shining into the house I am able to see a lot of dust bunnies and such, so I will be spending the next couple days deep cleaning the house.
The winter has been long and there were a few days that I didn’t get much done around the house as I just didn’t feel like it. It was dark and gray outside and the sun didn’t shine for such a long time. Now I feel energized to get more done and I feel that finally spring is around the corner. I can hardly wait to see a crocus peeking up out of the ground.
Next week the local meteorologist is predicting a lot of rain which will most likely lead to flooding in our area. We have been through a hard winter and now it would appear we will experience another spring of flooding. One thing always leads to another it would seem.
But for now, the sun is shining.
