Most of the gas stations near me have gasoline that is almost up to $2.00 a gallon, I use my Kroger card and get .10 a gallon off but it still takes me a good chunk of change to fill up my truck.
I was really hoping that I would not see gas prices getting this high and I can not understand why we can not get a break on the gas tax from the state. Even a few cents would make us feel better and make us look at the government with a little less hate. I hope gasoline drops soon, it is getting hard just to pay for the gas to get back and forth to work.
Well the transmission went out on the truck. That really stinks. Transmissions cost a lot of money, unless you get one that is used. Of course, if you get one that is used, there is no telling how long it will last. If you know how, you can rebuild yours, but a lot of people don’t have that kind of skill. I have to do a lot of research today and see what I can find for a transmission. I may be able to find a re manufactured one. That is actually my best bet. It will still cost almost a thousand dollars though.
A holiday that I really love is Thanksgiving. I love all of the traditional foods and the time spent with friends and family. This year the tribe will be gathering at my home and I really can not wait. I have started cooking the pies and some of the breads already and will be ready to pop the turkey in the oven on Thursday morning.
My sister will be arriving the day before and will be staying with us, I can not wait it has been forever since I have seen her and I am excited to be hosting her family this year. Get ready the turkey is on it’s way, loosen your belt and sit down at the table.
It is in the mid 30’s this morning. It seems awfully early this year and it has me thinking about snow. We had a mild winter last year after multiple snow storms the year before. It has me wondering what is in store for us this winter. The year before last I purchased an Electric Snow Shovel so I feel a little more confident then if I only had a shovel. I have moved since then and I have a lot farther to drive to get out of my neighborhood. I always worry about not being able to get out to go to work. I hope my new neighborhood has a good snow contract with a dependable company. Oh well, I guess I will see whats to come, no use worrying ahead of time.
With this cold weather and all this rain, I have a craving for comfort food. I think I will stop at the grocery on the way home and pick up what I need for a nice pasta dinner.
I especially want to get a loaf of fresh baked Italian bread. My favorite grocery bakes the bread right there at the store and it often goes on sale for 99 cents a loaf. I like to cut thick slices of the Italian bread and spread a garlic butter on it, then pop it under the broiler for about a minute to heat the bread and toast the edges. Sometimes I even toss some grated cheese on top of the bread before broiling it.
That garlic bread plus the pasta and a small green salad make a nice dinner.
It’s been years since you first tied the knot with your special somewhere. You’re celebrating your anniversary, and you know you want to show them how much you love them. Choosing a gift can be difficult, however. What type of gift will show them how much you truly care and accurately encapsulate how happy you are to be with them? Fortunately, there are several different types of gifts that have shown time and time again that you really do care.
Anniversary gifts come in many different types. You can give your significant other anything that you wish for your anniversary. The below three gifts have been found to be the most meaningful and well received anniversary gifts.
Jewelry is always an incredible gift. It helps show your loved one that you care enough to spend a significant amount of money to help them look their best. However, a lot of jewelry can end up looking the same. One of the best ways to ensure that you provide a unique piece of jewelry is to purchase handcrafted items. A pair of handcrafted earrings are guaranteed to be one of the best. And if your loved one is or has been in the military one of the wonderful Joy Jewelers military rings would be perfect.
One of the great things about having a long term life partner is that they will appreciate any gift that you give. You do not need to overly stress about what to give them. Simply put a fair amount of thought and effort into it and your gift will be appreciated. It doesn’t hurt to give them something truly unique and unforgettable. Put some time into considering various gifts that will make this anniversary one to remember.
Every morning as I return home from work I see people in such a rush to get to work or where ever they are going that they will almost run you off the road if you have the audacity to go the speed limit. God forbid you try to save money and drive less than the posted limit like I do some times, I am not a person who is in a hurry most of the time and I am getting very tired of getting the one finger salute as these jerks go by. Makes a girl want to carry a firearm with her sometimes. Good thing I do not own a firearm.
Yesterday, my sister and I were on our way to Wlamart when an 18 wheeler decided that she didn’t like us and tried to run us of the road. I was so upset that my sister called the cops and they said that they couldn’t do anything. Boy was I bent out of shape with that.
One of the best parts about riding my bicycle around town is that I’m able to wear a lot of my cute clothes and not worry about messing them up. It’s not like I ride that far to work or anything because most of the places are nearby my home. I’m really into fashion and love the opportunity I have to show off my personal style when I ride my bike.
I almost feel sorry for people who ride motorcycles and have to wear special gear on them just for safety purposes. Well, I don’t really worry about that. I do have a helmet, but it looks pretty cute and matches my bike so it looks good, not dorky. I found it online a few weeks ago at a really good price, actually. While I was online looking for helmets, I came across the website for Wild Blue Deals I looked through it a little bit and after that I decided to sign up for an internet package that I found on that website.
I’m excited about this weather because I’ll be able to ride my back a little bit more. I hate it when it’s too darned cold for me to ride. I’m just sad I live in an area where I can’t ride my bicycle comfortably all the time.
We are currently going through a terrible heat wave. We have been in the 90 degree weather for the past five days. People are dropping like flies from heat exhaustion.
Hydration is the best thing a person can do in times of a heat wave. People should drink water like a fish. Also taking as many cool baths can be beneficial. In the inner cities, the fire departments often will turn on the hydrants for people to cool off in the streets. This is a generous thing to do for the community. I wish I could see that done here.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my new hard wood floors, but there is something about having some thing nice and warm to step on that a hard wood floor just doesn’t have to offer. I think having a couple of nice area rugs to place strategically in a few key places around the house just might be the best way to handle this.
There used to be a guy that always set up at the Flea Marker down in the city that I used to like doing business with, but I hear that he retired and no one has heard from him since last year. I love going to this up scale Flea Market. You won’t find any used toys or baby clothes, it is strictly antiques and collectibles and other top quality merchandise. Well worth the trip down into the city on a nice weather day. There is such a variety of merchandise, as well as a variety of customers that it is a great way to spend the day people watching and seeing all the unique dealers that set-up there each weeks. But I have purchased a few items here and there through-out the years.
Thank goodness for the Internet. I found a great selection of that I have seriously been eyeballing the past couple of days. Amazing how many types of rugs are available these days. I think I’ll stick with the classics, now I just need to decide what size will be the best for what I need and want. It could run me anywhere from $40 all the way up to just under a grand.
