    DH wanted to go to a movie. I've had 4 movie tickets sitting her for a very long time-gifts, I think from my boss. Thank goodness they don't expire.

    No $8 popcorn, no $5 soda. Just a free movie.

    --Sold stuff on KIJIJI total of $45.00 yeah, sold it cheap but, theory is
    this Kitchen stuff is too large and too heavy for my shaky old hands to use.
    And, cooking for one does not require larger size things!
    Money in my pocket and someone else can get use out of it.
    --still going to VON Exercises for seniors 1-2 times a week FREE
    --Supper was Mac and Cheese/mixed veggies with cheese that needed to be used.
    Cook enough for 2 days and froze enough of the macaroni with mixed veggies
    for 4 bowls of soup.
    --Love having single serving broth in the freezer and single serving carbs to add in.
    --Lunch was soup
    --My new favourite it scalloped potatoes. Never could find a way to freeze the
    leftovers which I always seem to have because I only make them for company.
    Frozen in small containers and put in broth with other veggies makes a great
    soup. Potatoes reheated really well and made the soup creamy...yummy

    My little beagle needed a better bed. I was looking at an old bed pillow and decided to cover it with his favourite terry towel. He absolutely loves it! I woke this morning to hear hime rustling around in his crate beside my bed. I put on the light and found he had decided to be under the pillow. Funny little character.

    Put plastic over windows in kitchen and mudroom to help with heat loss.

    Tried out the Zojirushi breadmaker I got at thrift shop. It does not work, so opens up some counter space.
