Photo was taken around Christmas 1962 when I had just turned 5. That is my pretty mom behind me. She made the cross stitched clock on the buffet. The stocking with my name on it was made her mother and delivered to me before my first Christmas even though I was not even a week old. My apron was made by great grandmother. I come from a long line of homemakers who did stuff and got lots done.

Finances on Friday - a day late

Join the link up with Rebecca for Finances on Friday


We were Netflix members years ago and they sent me an email today, offering us another a free month. they are hoping we will re subscribe, and we might, but I doubt it as we have Amazon Prime. I looked around the Netflix site and am happy to see they have Call the Midwife, multiple seasons. I've never seen am episode, just a few clips, and I to watch it now.   We will see how much we enjoy this free month.

I cashed in my Swagbucks points for another $25 in paypal.

I went to Walmart today to exchange some jeans for my husband and while I was there I made one other purchase- price matching red grapes for 99 cents a pound. I got 2 bags for $4 instead of the $11 they would of been.

All the rest of our grocery shopping has been done at Aldi. We've eaten only home cooked or home prepared meals.

I needed milk, mostly for my grandchildren. I bought a gallon as it is cheapest per ounce that way. But some of the grands will be here less this summer while their parents are off work for summer so I poured some of the milk into a glass pitcher and put it in the fridge. I put the rest into 2 other plastic jugs and froze them for later.

Our family membership to the wonderful children's museum, just a few miles from our home, expired so I renewed it but got a smaller one. Last years was for up to 6 family members but I went down to just 4 and spent $100 less. My grands all enjoy playing and learning at this museum and I like that it is so close, very clean and safe and climate controlled.

The toddler room at the museum

The water table - always a favorite and somehow my grandsons still get wet even wearing the vinyl aprons :)

The museum has a craft area with all kinds of fun recycled things to create with 



Happy Memorial Day everyone - I am thankful for all our Veterans and active duty service members. I just wish the government did a better job fulfilling medical care for them. That's another post though.....
