Back from the shopping trip with my good friend and her hubby. Now I have a month's groceries to keep me going. All for easy cooking for supper.

When I start Goldies2Home I will only be making supper because I will be having lunch there for a month. By the end of April I should be getting pretty well back on my feet again... I hope!

Busy day today. PSW coming for my shower; this pm off to the Foot Clinic on DARTS bus. This evening friends pick me up to go grocery shopping. By the time I get home again, I'll be ready for bed!

I filled up too at 1.24 here.  I also made a date to have my snow tires taken off on Saturday.  Guess what it's going to do on Saturda.  You're right, it's going to snow.

Nothing much in yesterday's budget.  People are complaining about the raising on the oas 12 years from now.  I wonder how many when it used to be at age 70 you got it.  67 is not so bad when there is time for the planning. they can start saving now which is what they should have been doing all along.

I filled up on Tuesday.  It was $1.28 here.  What is it now?

I haven't been out of the house since then,  but I'm happy to say my freelance job will be finished in a couple of hours and then I'll be FREE!

I hope your personal issues are easily resolved, Gary.

Have a great weekend, Everybody.

well both budgets are in and Ontario takes the prize for most obnoxious....the fed's came in a lame second...nothing drastic...keep the peace.....we're just being conservative....ok....that's the thing about the Harp....he's not obvious, he'll get you some other time when you're not looking...why show your cards when everyone is expecting you to show your cards....that's dumb....they've figured that we/us have also figured that about the same we're's up to the alternatives to make the moves....there's some real talent there...and I think they're gonna have to keep a keen watch on the going's on and make a list of the key notes....(sic)......keep them and remind everyone and there of what has transpired......people generally have a short keeping them in the loop is what you want......we're not voting for a few years......hold on everyone.......check out the price of gas tomorrow.....then...get back to me.....

Now, about living alone,

Ive been on my own for some time now

meet people v. easily

in fact, have a card with me

that i exchange, many times
