Day 5 Make Do

A little free motion quilting this morning before I headed out..

Today I did do a bit of spending but it was so worth it to have lunch with a dear old friend who moved to Charleston 11 years ago. Thanks for making my week Val, I miss you guys so much!!We had a nice long lunch then a visit in the parking lot before she had to pick up her hubby from a meeting and I had to head to Daughter #1 to watch the little ones while she took Tyler for his 5 year check up. I arrived home to find Daughter #3 and sweet Kara waiting. They have been in Fl for a week visiting SIL parents, boy have we missed our little girl.

I left home at 11:00 AM today, arrived home a 6:00 PM, thank goodness for fast food. Now let me remind you our fast food doesn't come from a drive up window. When we have leftovers that freeze well I put them up for when a night like tonight comes along. Cooking is out of the question I am dog tired. The menu tonight was bean soup with yeast rolls, followed by cupcakes that I only had to throw some frosting on. I'm figuring I saved us $20.00-$25.00 had we gone out for the same meal, as an added bonus we didn't have to deal with parents who won't make their children behave in a restaurant or folks who think it's good table manners to talk on a cell phone loud enough for all to hear!

How are you doing on your No/Low spend month? Good luck to everyone who is trying to stash away a little extra for a rainy day.


  1. Well, you know what I've been spending MY money on - yuck! But you know, having that warm shower tonight after the workmen finally left, well, you can't put a price on that! Now I'm drinking a tall cold glass of water and it's like nectar from the gods! Money well spent I'd say!

  2. Amen! Thankfully you didn't have to use plastic for the repairs, enjoy that running water and freshly cleaned basement.

  3. That quilt is beautiful!
    Oh, I like your idea of fast food! I think I'll be making some *freezer* meals for just such an occasion!

  4. Thnaks, if I ever get the quilt finished I know the little girl will love it!! We love our fast food, some of my recipies are for such large amounts hubby and I could never eat it all, I like to freeze some in individual size for lunches or a night on my own.
