Hot as Hades today

July 18th, 2013 at 09:37 pm

Inside my house itís 88 degrees; outside temp is 95 and with humidity, over 100.

Cats still in basement; me a glutton for punishment, upstairs with ceiling fan a-whirl.

I left around noon and went to the landfill first. Then to the library, then to fill up on gas at BJs. Connecticut already has high-priced gas, so they thought it fitting to raise gas taxes by .15. BJs is the cheapest around, at I think 3.86/gallon. Inside, I took my time, looking in every aisle, in the air conditioned space. However, I was lazy and didnít bring my cooler with ice paks, so I really didnít think I should be buying anything refrigerated or frozen. Which is too bad, as Iím a little low, but I may just shop locally tomorrow, with the cooler. Maybe Trader Joeís.

I did buy two refrigerated things at BJs: some of their organic salad greens and something new: Holy Guacamole. I got 6 small containers and froze 5 of them. Woofed down the 6th with some nice crackers. It wad delicious. Iíve bought avocados before but they seem to go bad in a day, and I canít use a whole avocado in one salad.

Iíve begun to pick wineberries in my yard. This is the time they ripen. I wonít go crazy like in past years since thatís a good way to pick up ticks and more Lyme disease, but I am picking from the relative safety of a mowed lawn. About a cup a day. Iím freezing them for winter use when berries are scarce.

No freelance work for the past few weeks. Frown I have about $420 in outstanding billables that should be paid any day now.

Tonight is a Netflix night. Smile

Iíve completed my spending for the last bonus credit card. I am waiting (so impatiently) for rewards on 4 different cards.

    I met my $3k for my Chase Sapphire card and I'm patiently waiting for my 40,000 reward points!

    Nothing like those berries in January when it is cold!

    What are you watching on Netflix? Always looking for a good recommendation!

  4. PatientSaver Says:

    NJDebbie, that's the card I'm also waiting on rewards for! Yeah, baby!

    My English Castle: I would highly recommend the one I saw last night: Bliss. I know some people don't like to hear many details, so I won't spoil it for you. I will say it's a thought-provoking movie, is set in Turkey and has a happy ending.

    Fabulous! I'll try it. I've been watching "Accused," a British crime drama and liking it.
