You know how sometimes when you get home you're just SO glad to be home?? Today is one of those days. I took a half day off work again to finish up my car purchase and it was one thing after another. I won't bore you with the details but suffice it to say, things did not go according to plans.
I spent nearly 5 hours at Belle Tire having various things repaired on the new/old Montana. Enough time to cast on and nearly finish knitting a red wool hat. Long enough to eat a bag of stinky snack mix from the vending machine and drink a can of regular Pepsi. Right, I only drink Diet -- that's what happens when I'm not wearing my readers!
I dropped a lot of money at the tire place and while I have to return on Saturday to get the wipers repaired, I should be done for a while with repairs and maintenance. I know Frank gave me a plethora of deals, for which I am grateful, and trust I'm good for the winter.
My dinner at 8:30 pm consists of protein (Reese's Peanut Butter cups) and fruit (organic Riesling from Washington State) -- balanced, don't you think?
For those who are or will be trying to save their pennies, here's a blog/website courtesy of Worldstart.com, called The Frugal Girls -- Living Well with less $$$. I'm adding their blog to my roll on the left.
We might have our first sighting of snow overnight -- better find my scraper before I leave in the morning....
