    Dinners this week:
    spaghetti squash (from my fall garden) with ratatouille
    Butternut squash (from my fall garden) with chicken from the freezer
    I'll have these each twice

    Brunch: eggs OR tuna salad with pita chips

    I also have some protein bars if I don't feel like cooking.

    I'm staying at the cabin all week and hubby will leave tonight to work all week and return Friday afternoon. I'm going to sew sew sew read read and sew some more. And I have a scarf I'm knitting, and of course, this light box.

    Dado: I recently bought some "microgreens" at the winter farmers' market. Apparently they are the next stage of growth beyond sprouts. I got sunflower and pea. The sunflower was pretty bitter, but I really liked the pea and should probably try this at home. I did think of you when I bought them!

    Let a $10 Dick's coupon expire - didn't need anything for $10 or less and it's too easy to spend way more.

    Restrung a necklace that had broken - added some other beads to it, so not it's a bit longer, which I like better.

    I thought about it - but just didn't make the effort to go to the store, lol.

    cancelled a streaming service (AttTVnow): will save me $60/month

    DH went to ATT store to replace his old phone and wound up rejiggering plans and signing up for Autopay and as a result our phone bill family plan (3 of our kids are on it and pay us every month) will be $100 less per month.

    Dumped Verizon and went T-mobile. Each got new Samsung Note for price of 1. Phone plan unlimited in North America. Cost? $90/month. A savings over just my plan. AND, hubster's work will reimburse him $50/month. (He has been on a work plan w/provided phone all these years and that is coming to an end.)

    The biggest punishment in this market is the single subscriber. I use it a lot and need it for travel so hotspot matters.
