Every Day

A Little of This and a Little of That

On Monday, my granddaughter and I went and picked up my free Butterball turkey. You could get a free one up to $25. But of course they did not have one that big. All of their turkeys were between 16 and 17 lbs. We got the largest one we could find which was 16.90 lbs. I was happy with that. It is now in the freezer to cook sometime this winter.

We also picked up a box of their pumpkin muffins which my granddaughter loves and some Indiana Popcorn with the chocolate drizzle(oh so good) that we shared for the Buffalo Bills game last night. I used some reward points that I had so I paid only $ 3.32 for all.

Then we went to the bank so that my granddaughter could make a deposit. It was the first time she did it alone and she did it without a hitch even after all of the questions they threw at her.

We came home and had a delicious bowl of chicken tortellini soup for lunch per her request. Then we spent the afternoon just enjoying her company. For dinner I made two meals worth of homemade meatballs. I froze one meal’s worth for the future. She loves spaghetti and meatballs so she was very happy!

Then we watched the Bills game which we lost in the last few seconds of the game due to a penalty. We had 12 men on the field instead of 11. Really, really dumb! Today the offensive coach got fired! He should have been let go a long time ago!

Today, Alexa helped me do some organizing in my pantry. There were heavy things that needed to be moved and she was happy to do it for me. She also marked many items with the expiration date where I could see it. All in all we spent about 2 hours doing this but now it is finally done. I am very thankful for her help.

As a treat for dinner, we got KFC chicken to bring home. I think we have enough for 2 more meals. I used a coupon that let us get a 16 piece meal for $ 34.99. Yes, I always spoil my grandchildren.

We have been enjoying ” Guess That Song” on You Tube for the past hour and a half. They are playing it while I finish this to get it posted. Hubby knows so many of them but Alexa knows so many more. She is even really good with the songs from the 1960’s and 1970’s!

That’s it for today!

Hi Precious, good shopping. Woo Hoo on the free turkey and using rewards to pay for your other things. That is the way to do it. I plan to clip my rewards for Kroger tomorrow also, I had saved my ones from Oct to do since I will need to buy a turkey and a ham. The turkeys are .49/lb but not sure about the ham, they don’t advertise them so much for Thanksgiving. I will report back what I paid. Guessing it won’t be as low as they have them for Christmas.

We met some friends at one of daughter’s restaurants last night. It was Taco Tuesday so they had taco and drink specials. The husband is on our state’s school board and I am guessing you heard about the awful accident, I know it made national news. The band was coming to play to honor the new president at their convention. Our friends still wanted to meet after they cancelled the rest of the convention, so we were there for them in their time of sadness. He told us that the actress, Mary Steenburgen, was to be the keynote speaker, and she and her husband, Ted Danson, were very gracious to offer words of support to everyone when her speech had to be cancelled. Our food was great, and we also caught up talking about more pleasant things, too, like their and our grandchildren, who are similar in age. 🙂

I can’t remember if I posted but my Medicare application went through ok and I should be getting all that stuff soon. Now I can pick my Medigap plan. So glad you are having a fun week so far with your granddaughter, it was good of her to help you with the pantry stuff.

Hi Chris,

Thanks! Nice on saving for a turkey and ham! Cheap price on your turkey. The store brand is $.58 a lb. here with a $? purchase. I don’t know what it is because I don’t buy our store brand here because they are awful. I am having Walmart deliver me a big Honeysuckle White one this evening for $ .98 a lb. Unless they put turkeys on clearance after the holiday, I won’t buy another one. Hams usually are cheaper here around Christmas. I will wait and see.

Yes I did read about that accident. Just horrible!

I am glad your Medicare went through ok!

Alexa is a terrific young lady. She has helped me with a number of things this week.
