Errands day

June 19th, 2005 at 03:44 am

Got going early today. I live in a small town about 15 miles from a medium-large town. So I started by driving into town. Went to Kmart and got a bird feeder, bird seed and a microwave popcorn bowl. All things on my want list. Spent 19.19

Next went to Barnes and Noble and browsed through their books. Wrote down 11 books to check for at the library. I hadn't planned on it, but bought two financial magazines about retiring. I'm a sucker for these things. Spent 11.75 - unplanned and un-needed Frown

Next went to Longs. Planned to buy a battery recharger that was on sale for 19.99. It was a really good deal since it came with 4 rechargeable batteries that were selling for 9.99. They didn't have any so I got a rain check. Will try to check the Longs by my work when I go in on Tuesday. I did buy a set of 4 rechargeable batteries for 10.73 for which I will get a $3 rebate.

Next went to the big library in town and browsed through the finance section. Picked out 4 books to check out.

Then went to Wendy's for lunch - spent 4.69. Planned, but un-needed Smile

After that I went to King Soopers and got grapes @ .88 lb and 2 tomatoes, celery, radishes, popcorn, sunflower seeds and frozen potatoe wedges. Spent 14.35 - saved 5.71 for sale items. I'm trying to clean out my freezer so didn't need much this week.

Next I went to the branch library in my small town to pick up my holds.

Finally made it home. Spent about 3 hours total for errands. By that time I was tired and didn't want to do much. Put the groceries away and filled and hung my bird-feeder. My home office looks out on the back yard and I love watching the birds all day.

Turned the air-conditioner on for two hours this afternoon. The first time this year. Mostly just wanted to make sure it was working.

Then I sat down and read my two magazines. Then took a nap for an hour.

When I got up I chopped up all my veggies for the week and tried out my new popcorn popper. Works great, I actually think the popcorn kernals had more flavor than the microwave popcorn I'm used to. Read for awhile and fixed supper around 8:00. I wasn't hungry because of the afternoon popcorn snack. Had lemon pepper fish fillet and a baked potato.

Read for a while longer then logged on to the library internet site and placed holds on all but one of the books from my list from Barnes and Noble. I'll keep the other book on the list and check later, they may order it in a week or so.

So all in all a pretty mundane day. Only one unplanned expense. But another fast-food day and no walking to offset it. Ah well, beautiful moon out tonight it's almost full. Guess I'll go read for a while longer.
