Friday spends and the storm is over.

It's not quite 11:00 am, and the sun is shining but it is very cold outside. The storm was a good one, complete with high winds. I managed to spend 45.20 on the alignment yesterday ( it was pulling to the left and I didn't want to ruin my tires), 45.00 on my haircut, 31.48 on groceries, including a bunch of tulips that were grown in PEI and an insulated bag to keep my cold things cold or my hot things hot when I buy groceries. I spent 59.87 for gas ( 113.6/litre), 4.00 on a 6/49 ticket, 12.24 at the bulk barn and 17.00 at Block Buster for 2 movies and a treat. I rent The Girl who Played with Fire and The girl who kicked the Hornets Nest. If you've read the books, I highly recommend renting the movies!

Today I'm cleaning the house and getting stuff like that finished up. I will bundle up and take the dog for a brisk walk, as he's getting too fat. I've devised a hands free way to walk the dog, and I even got my mother to try it out yesterday. Fingers crossed that she can take him for little walks every day, while I'm away working.

Tomorrow I want to do some baking and batch cooking, and enjoy some time in the outdoors. I hope everyone stayed safe in the storm last night.

Sam those Movies are they the Swedish originals or have they been remade in english ??
I have read all three books and loved them.
Glad to see the storm is over.
Maybe one day we will see Jane in PEI growing tulips, what a great idea, I,m a genius !!!

I've read those books AND saw the movies but didn't realize they were all out on dvd now- I want to buy them as they are movies I would watch again. No sun here - just a fine misty snow all day. Hands-free dog walking - is that so you have both hands free to catch you when you slip on the ice??

Jane, I use a web belt ( similar to a duty belt that police use) and run the handle of the lead through it). It frees up my hands, and it limits how much the dog can pull me, as I have my body weight to keep him in line and both hands to give a quick tug on his lead if he's acting up. Maureen, I think that is a splendid idea, but I would only have a few hours jaunt to visit the island, while you would have a 24 hours of travel time.

The movies are in Swedish but dubbed into English ( and very well done). I would add them to my buy list for movies!
