lazy Sunday

Safeway has a new coupon book out called something like the Joy of Football. Anyways it has some really good coupons, one of which is $1 off Chex Mix. Walgreens has a Chex Mix deal that makes this a money maker.

3.99 - 3 bags Chex Mix - I got the ones that said 33% more so they were the 12 oz bags.
-3.00 - 3 $1 q's from Safeway book
- .99 - .99/3 WAG q from their January book
FREE plus got a $1.50 RR back. If you buy 4 you get $2.50 and 5 gives you a $3.50 RR. These will all be donated to the food pantry.

I also got 2 boxes of 10 ct Old El Paso taco shells on sale for .99 each. I had 2 .50 cent coupons so .98 for 2. Will donate these also.

Spent about an hour on the phone with older niece. She's taking an anthropology class this semester and likes it so much, wants to change her minor to it. Now wants to see if their are any jobs that combine anthropology and psychology. I couldn't think of any, but who knows. I'm really enjoying the Great Courses DVDs I got on Existentialism and we talked about that for a while.

It's nice enough here that mom and I can walk outside after awhile. Looks like most of the rest of the country is getting our snow this year.

I finished reading my book Dragonseye by Anne McCaffrey. Sci/Fi - pretty good.

    just saw your blog on visit to Canada, we live 1.5 hrs from Banff and work at the Banff School of Mgmt, small part of Banff School of Fine Arts from time to time. Should you ever return, please check Travel Advisor for accommodation recommendations...often from locals. Check with Banff School of Fine Arts for accommodation vacancies, reasonable cost, great food, million dollar view.

    Sadly Banff like many resort cities, [thinking Niagara Falls] take advantage of tourists. So stupid as they bite the hand that feeds them. I doubt many international visitors return for a 2nd visit unless they know a local who can steer them away from the worst.
