Monday morning

Well, I really did get sick and had to go to urgent care and get an antibiotic and cough medicine with codeine. I think the last time I had a Z-pack was probably 5 years ago.  So not fun. I’m doing much better but still coughing some. That’s been the worst. So not a lot has been done.

I did go down to our Holiday Market and manage to spend $71 on groceries. It’s always more expensive there but sometimes distance and energy must take precedent. I’m planning on Costco this week, just not sure when. We need TP, coffee, cheese and more so I’ll get there.

I was so thrilled at the Women’s marches and their incredible success. I mean 3 million people marched around the world.  And what is Trump concerned about but the size of the size of the inaugural crowds.  My daughter is making me a pussyhat and I can wait to wear it.

We’re almost at the end of the Uber Frugal month.  It’s been interesting to watch how we spend money. We didn’t go out to eat or do take out. So that saved some money. I had a $10 Panera card I used when we went and had a coffee. Going to Costco will up the grocery bill but in the end, it saves so much when I can buy a block of cheese for $8.00 as opposed to a tiny block for $4.00. I’ve also really gone thru the freezer and that’s been great. This week I’m going to use some grass fed hot dogs, grass fed sausages and some beef. Not sure what I’ll make but should be relatively simple.

B is away all week in Santa Monica doing a co-op reset.  They do reset at night so very hard on the body especially at his age. He’s probably going to get these co-ops taken away and given to someone down there( like it was), so I’m kinda bugged he has to go do this.

 

Walking update!

We are now on day 372. Unfortunately, my knee has been giving me some trouble. I’m guessing it’s some kind of osteoarthritis. But not sure. It’s kinda clicking and my knee goes weak. It’s better then comes back. So I guess I’ll be going a little slower so I don’t aggravate it. It’s tough when I really want to forge ahead and do more. Oh well, just remember, to just keep walking! 

Not much on the schedule today except to hit the grocery store for a few things. We are going to Tahoe next week and I’ll do some shopping up there after pay day. We love Nevada beach. I just wish there were showers. We have a solar one that helps but it’s not great.

its heating up here and is suppose to be in the 90’s. I do not like it hot or too cold. Okay, I want perfect weather like Santa Barbara. 

I might do some more decluttering in the barn. We’ve made headway so a little more would be good. I need to go find some paint to touch up some areas, but our stupid goat ate the labels off, so I hope I can tell what’s what.
