Still waiting for rain..
Friday, July 27, 2018
We got all excited awhile ago: We saw some raindrops! For two minutes, then nothing..
We did our weekly run with a few extra stops.
Yesterday I bought a new laptop and mouse for the desktop. I, of course, had some free digital gift cards that I earned free of charge online. They had a sale, plus, I had them scan a QR code for 500 extra points for a website that I earn free gift cards! The PC battery is still charging. I really do not care for laptops, they take way too long to use the mouse.. I only bought it for our vacation, so we can stay in touch with life.
This morning we used a free staples reward to get a boatload of tissues.
On to the grocery store for some essentials and freebies.
We then went to menards for yet more bird seed and some freebies. I bought 120 pounds of seed for the little winged friends. I slowed down on feeding them when it got warmer outside, but since we are in drought conditions here, I know bugs are scarce, so I am feeding them again. I also scrubbed the birdbath out and DD refilled it in the shade.
I also bought a lawn sprinkler: we have not had one for almost 30 years with all of the rain we have had here, but this is so different this year. Of course, Linda's Law, once I got the basement ready for flooding, we get no rain. No complaints about THAT area, but I feel bad for farmers and wildlife.
We will be wrapping Christmas gifts and going over our vacation checklist this weekend. We will be leaving 3 weeks from tomorrow!
