We’re back in the rain today and all weekend:( I know we need all we can get but geez, it gets kind of old. Anyway, I didn’t go out this morning so I could do a few house things.
I made up a batch of hummus from the garbanzos I cooked the other day. I planned the next week’s menu using the pantry challenge. Tonight I will use the one frozen pizza I have in the freezer. I’ll make a salad on the side. I tidied up my office space and did a swish and swipe in the bathroom. I planned to vacuum but all the kitties are sleeping!
I had a nice swim yesterday and the pool was not super busy. I usually swim Saturdays but with the next wave of the storm is tomorrow and it’s forecast to be heavier rain and some wind.
Our UHC medicare supplemental has a gym membership with Anytime Fitness for free so I signed up for that. B is already signed up and is going 2-3 x a week. I plan on using the gym for the treadmill and weights when I don’t want to drive down the hill. Plus it’s free!
We went to Costco on Wednesday and it was not too busy at all. We usually try and get there right at 9 but this time we were there at 10 and it was great. Plus we didn’t need a whole lot. I was primarily going to get the 4 pack of Nasocort I use to help clear my sinus cavity. This was something the doctor said to try and it does help. We bought about $100 in just groceries. I’ll add that amount to the food budget but the non food I’ll keep out of the low spend challenge. Things like AA batteries, allergy stuff are just maintenance stuff and need to be bought regardless of low spend month.
My favorite youtube, Minimom had a good budget video the other day. She had bought a download from Etsy that is compatible with Google Docs. I checked it out and I’m curious but I tend to like my budget on paper. It’s on sale today so I guess I’ll need to decide.
That’s it for now, hopefully, the rain will ease up. It’s hard not to go stir crazy.

Yay for a free gym membership! That’ll be nice and extremely useful!
It’s definitely a perk to use. I do pay for the membership to the pool and rec center but it’s only $35 a month and it’s the pool I really wanted to use as there isn’t one up where I am that’s affordable.
I’ve been wondering how you were faring, given the news about wet weather and not much let up.
It sounds like you are OK enough. Good !
The Sierra foothills are getting walloped but nothing compared to Santa Cruz or even Sacramento is getting hit hard. Our biggest concern is for trees falling with the wind and the ground so saturated. Sacramento has had some big trees go down in neighborhoods. I-80 is getting closed periodically and if we can just get Bay area people to stay home and not try and get to Tahoe it would be a good thing.
