Today...really, really cold. Just checked, it's 9 degrees outside.
This, of course, is the day that my darling dog found a place in the back fence she could get through. So I had to spend 20 minutes putting in a chainlink patch. Did I mention that it's 9 degrees.
I love her...really. Don't worry about the kicking. (just kidding...maybe)
I made a purchase that I'm going to allow on my spending freeze. A grain bed warmer! Oh...ya gotta get one! 3 minutes in the microwave and my toes were not cold at all.
And I bought a t-shirt for my dad. He was in the hospital last week and he's been on my mind a lot.
And then there was the new pannier bag that was on clearance when I went to get tubes for my bike tires...
Okay so the spending freeze hasn't been a complete sucess.
I haven't been to Target or Walmart or any of those stores that get us all in trouble.
Of course I can justify all of the purchases...a gift for my dad, a bag I needed for my bicycle commuting that will begin....eventually, a foot warmer to keep me from freezing to death in my very cold house.
But I'm trying...
