    Thursday, March 15 $$$ stretching

    Good morning ... we're five days from the start of spring.   (though many of us have near-summer weather)

    Anyway, how are you stretching $$ today?

    It was 82 here in central NC yesterday, supposed be that warm for the next few days.  Today should be a semi stretchy day.  Only money out will be to take DS#2 our for his birthday supper (he turns 18 today) at our local Chinese place.  I need to do some house cleaning today so will take care of that early and have the rest of the day free to work on a couple small outdoor things I need to do.  I would also like to work in my craft room for a while this afternoon.

    Good Morning, 41 and cloudy in Vermont. We will get a shower later but that is good since we had no snow this winter. We will need these spring showers to get the grass and plants growing.  HOme today with two kids.  Need Dh to come home for an hour so I can go see my Mom.  DD#2 normally goes on Wed but she has a sore throat so couldnt see her. Not allowed to visit if sick.  I will have to get gas before going as I am on empty. So at least $40 out for a little gas.  Need to plan for dinner.  Not sure what it will be for today. DH is planning on a trip to the dump. We have a broken patio table, a broken chair, few other things that need to leave here. The table broke from the Halloween snow.  Not sure if I will replace it or not.  It was an extra from MIL. Nice to have but didnt really need it.  DH is painting in our hall. I want to get a new rug for it.  Other than that just home for the day. Have a blessed day, Babs

    Happy Birthday Shellia's son! Supposed to be 84 here in eastern NC today. I'm dreading summer if it is already this hot so early. At least the humidity is low. Money out today for DH's meds from speciality pharamacy. Working all day and all meals from home. Need to do some yard work this afternoon. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

    Low 70's here today.  Things are really starting to green up around here.  Some of my lilac bushes are starting to bud.  They are my all time favorite flower.  Down for a couple of days with a stomach bug and back at work today.  Still feeling off but hungry this morning so that's a start.  Should be a stretchy day today.  I'm looking forward to this weekend.  The weather should be nice and I'm planning on doing some painting inside and working a bit in the yard.  Have a good day!

    Light breezes and rain for today is what the weatherman predicted. I have a little housework to do and then the rest of the day is for reading and relaxing. It is too wet to work in the yard after it raining all day yesterday. My backyard is like swamp land today. DD is supposed to come over at some point today so I will catch up with her while she is here. I need to figure out a plan for dinner tonight.

    Another beautiful day here ... think the rain is about to arrive, though.

    Walked into the bathroom last night to discover we had an ant invasion.   Figured out where they were going, and put some Tero down ... I think the whole colony came out to get some Yes  Will have to reapply again tonight.

    Trying to figure out why the chamber in the airbed is leaking.  Last time, had to replace it ... think I'd better check on prices ...

    My project for tonight is to start on taxes ...
