Treated myself to a rather delicious crayfish salad this evening...
I think I've been fairly frugal recently. Nothing big-ticket/major for a while.
You know, I was gonna ask.
But I decided to leave well enough alone. Some doors just aren't worth opening.
A new rear bumper.
^Gorgeous wheels. Perfect for the heatwave we are in.
Dennis is one step away from being in a HARDCASTLE & McCORMICK remake. Sweet ride, bro.
Thanks. I'm thrilled to have her.
Yeah, the weather here has been beautiful - maybe one rainy day in the last month.
There's actually a little more work that has to be done to replace a parking sensor in the back, but the mechanic reassembled her for me because he knew I was taking a trip this weekend. Great guy.
Groceries... but they had cherries so I bought some which I put in a jar and covered with Maraschino (those I didn't eat on my way home anyway).
A new shower curtain liner, to replace the previous mildew-resistant one (which was covered with mildew).
Some groceries for the day. Nothing complicated.
I used to tape (!) plastic carrier bags together for disposable shower curtains. Haven't done that in years though; Ikea has (plastic-foil) shower curtains so cheap I don't even bother any more... Sometimes I decorate them with speed-markers though
Well, the mildew-resistant curtain cost $10 and didn't resist the mildew, so I replaced it with one that cost $2.99. I figure three of those will last at least as long as the expensive one, and I can just throw them away when they start looking grungy without feeling too wasteful.
Just ordered this cross stitch chart:
It's a different designer than the one I usually buy from, but they're the only one with Avengers so far.
Some lunch from a fast food joint and a handful of snacks and groceries.
Lunch for three at Five Guys.
The Art of The Avengers book. Found it at Books a Million today- amazon.com had a 1-3 month shipping estimate. Glad the local shop had it, even though it cost a little more. Can't wait to look through it!
Also ordered another Hawkeye action figure, a little smaller and less elaborate than the Diamond Select Hawkeye I'm still waiting for, but still nice. It should arrive tomorrow.
Tickets to two separate exhibits at the Museum, and a parking pass, plus $50 bucks worth of groceries.
Butterbeer at Warner Bros Studios
