Dear Abbey!

July 31st, 2012 at 06:42 pm

I have taken a few days off from posting. That is because I have a new puppy and her name is Abbey!
My malta poo named Molly has suddenly become a mother to the new puppy that looks just like her.
Abbey is pure maltese and so tiny. She is 8 weeks old today and I am taking her to the vet in a few hours for a check up.
Thanks for missing me, but I am still around. I will be busy with house breaking chores for a while.

Atlanta Braves

July 21st, 2012 at 09:59 pm

On Thursday my dh went with his friend to see his 2nd ever big league game (baseball) in Atlanta. They had a great time and the braves won. It is always more fun to see a winning game.
Last night the braves were down 9 runs, so we switched channels. They came back to win 11-10 in overtime. Today they won 4-0, so I have $3 to add to the challenge. I had a no use gas day today, for a grand total of $5 for the challenge.

catching up!

I have not blogged in several days, so I need to catch up on my $20 challenge. The braves won 3 games in a row and the stock market went up two days in a row, That is $5 to add to the challenge.

WE finally got some much needed rain today. It has not rained in a month and dh has been watering like crazy! He is trying to keep his garden and all the flowers we have planted alive!
Yesterday, I got a scare. The house would not cool down and the a/c was on. I thought maybe we needed a new system cause ours is 17 years old! The repair man came today and it is running and cooling again.
The braves are not playing right now and the stock market went down today. The only positive thing that I did today was have a no use gas day. $2 to the $20 challenge.

Thieves in the garden!

July 8th, 2012 at 09:20 pm

DH and I both love wild critters, but I wish they would stay out of our garden. I don't eat veggies, but dh loves them. Last year the deer got almost all of this corn, even tho we feed them bagged corn out in the back yard.
This year, he fenced in his garden and he keeps a radio playing. That seems to work with the deer but now something else is eating the corn and the tomatoes. He is off to home depot to see if he can find a motion light that will come on when movement occurs. He thinks it is raccoon.
The braves swept the phillies this weekend ( 3games) and I have had a no use gas day. That is $5 to add to the challenge.

The party was great!

July 5th, 2012 at 09:33 pm

The party that we went to last night was great! The couple had a full sit down dinner, all catered. They also had live music. We ate so late, we were not able to get to the other party in time.
There were about 70 people at the party! We all sat under the stars! I am sure glad it did not rain. (even tho we really need it.)

Happy Birthday America

July 4th, 2012 at 06:55 pm

Happy 4th of July everyone! We are invited to two parties tonight. We hope to make both of them.
Dh and I don't drink many soft drinks. The only thing I buy is diet sprite which we both use in mixed drinks in the evening.
I like to really stock up on it when it is on sale, which is usually around holidays. I got some yesterday and saved $12 to add to my challenge money.

Goodbye Andy

Andy Griffith died at his home this morning. He will be missed by millions. I watched him growing up and I am still watching his reruns to this day. Rest in Peace, Andy. You made the world a happier place.

ING interest!

July 2nd, 2012 at 03:38 pm

My interest to my ING account posted yesterday. It was $80. It is going down cause we are using that account to finish up the house we are building. Sadly, we have had no lookers. At this point, I would sell the house at zero profit, just to get our money out of it. The next house will be a smaller cabin. But this lot had such a great mountain view, we just had to put a really nice house on it. Keep your fingers crossed for me that the house sells.

Hot party!

July 1st, 2012 at 04:34 pm

We went to a party last night. She had a small band and the food was great, but the party was all outside. We are having a heat wave right now and the temperature was 96 degrees!
I bought steak on sale and saved $3. Also, the stock market went up and the braves won yesterday, so that is $5 towards the challenge.
