It's a Big Sunny Day

Yesterday's heavy rain from the latest tropical storm moved out of the area and today is a happy sunshine day. As one of the grandsons says, "It's a big sunny day."

I'm making plans to re-work/redesign the layout of my coral tank. A couple of reef keepers gifted me with awesome coral frags (coral babies) during my treatment. The frags have been resting on the sand bed (at the bottom of my tank) waiting for me to settle them into permanent 'homes' on my reef. With Harry's help I think that will happen next week. Picture of before and after? I'll try.

Lucky me, I miscalculated the number of weeks I'll have cleaning ladies come to take care of our house. They will be here for a couple more weeks. I bought a package deal and that gave me three more weeks of service than if I just went on a weekly basis. WaaaHoooooo!! I'll certainly miss them but all things must end.

Today I'm going to the grocery for a major buying spree. I have a 20% off coupon for my entire purchase PLUS today is senior citizen day discount of 5%. Both will apply. I know that I'll come home and fall flat on my face but our pantry, freezer, and refrig will be well stocked. The treat cabinet will be in pretty good shape, too. I might add that I'll be flat broke but who cares. It's only $$.

Enough of my ramble. Gotta get goin' if I want to keep the day on track. Thanks for stopping by. See ya later.

Ha, you go girl!

Ya know you can order your groceries online here. They knock on the door with plastic bins full of all your stuff ,on a dolly. They hand it to you and explain wheather it's frozen..etc..

I always feel i should tip them, but I guess you're not supposed to.

It's pretty cool. Even though I don't get to do it very often.

When I was about 5 , in Puerto Rico we used to always go snorkeling. I remember the water was shallow enough for me to crawl around on my arms. There was tons of "live coral" . I don't think I've seen it(alive)since then. How awesome your tanks must be :)

I absolutely hate grocery shopping but always feel so good when its done and my pantry and fridge are well stocked. I can't believe Thanksgiving is only a couple weeks away....the days just fly by. So glad you're getting your strength back and you're feeling better. You'll be good as new before long...just take it steps. Hugs.

I bet you're loving being out and about. And by the way, we have your rain. Yuck.

Hope you had fun getting out and shopping and saved lots of money.
We have had rain all day!!

Jamie said...

That's a great savings!

You sound so good it makes me happy.

Have fun shopping - although I literally hate it..I know others don't feel the same about it, well not everyone. :)

I'm so glad you are up to grocery shopping! I HATE it, but have to bite the bullet and just do it. Where did you get that 20 percent coupon? I'm with you I always shop on Wednesday so I get the senior citizens discount. However, I had to buy cat food yesterday and ended up spending $130, obviously I bought other items. Then I came home and cleaned out the refrigerator. Now I must shop for Thanksgiving. Ugh.
