Still Uber-Frugal

January 8th, 2018 at 10:47 am

Not much willpower required as we're in a quiet zone right now. I'm finally almost over my cold, and only spent some cash on groceries over the weekend. We went nowhere else and did nothing. How's that for boring? DD has school exams coming up and rejected the offer of a movie. I'm working on a conference talk and spent a good part of the weekend doing a lit review. Later today I'll put it all together, create a PowerPoint, and an annotated bibliography. I love these projects so I'm happy as can be.

Tomorrow I'll go glasses shopping and spent some time at the university working on my annual review and next term's projects. It will be good to get out!

Leftovers loom for lunch (how's that for headline?), and perhaps for dinner as well. I tried a new pot roast recipe from Cooks Illustrated that was pretty darn good, so I'm looking forward to the dinner leftovers. I need to do some intensive tidying around here too. DH and I are still working on our jigsaw puzzle--a Monet sea scene. I feel a little dorky saying it, but we're enjoying doing it together.

January quietness hasn't turned into January blahs yet--probably because It's so nice to have a break from the classroom. Two more weeks of this bliss to come.

    I'm a fan of puzzles. I think I have one more here at the house that hasn't ever been done before. I suggested it last night to my daughter who was home today...but she had too much homework to work on. Maybe next weekend...a free activity!

    I think your peaceful existence sounds wonderful!

    As for leftovers...I usually inform DH when we have a little of this and that that we are having a buffet or if we feel upscale, a smorgasbord. Smile
