Weather and groceries

May 3rd, 2020 at 09:30 pm

Our weather pattern has been weird. We get one or two decent sunny days and then 4 or 5 rainy, dreary, cool days. Not good for the garden, that's for sure.

DH has decided to try and plant a few more tomato plants and when he was digging in the yard found a wire. He quit immediately and will call about having Julie come out and make sure it isn't anything bad. We can't see where the wire goes. Doesn't seem to be coming from our house or the neighbors nor does it seem to be a part of the electrical boxes. Better to be safe than sorry.

I have been trying to get a few projects done around here, like everyone else. I decided I can officially start on making some Christmas presents. I already had the items, just need to work on them. It gives me hope anyway.

I have run out of library books and basically am rereading some books we have here. A friend left a sack of books on my doorstep, but I have read them already and it was too soon to try and read them again. Some of them were the ones I lent her.

Is it just me, or are you seeing an increase in your grocery spending? I am finding some things are going up. We aren't eating anymore than we did. Don't want to get on that snacking bandwagon. I think part of it is the stores aren't running big sales either. Guess they are just trying to keep up with demand. So, we aren't spending as much doing other things, but are spending a bit more for the groceries. Guess it will even out.

    My grocery spending has gone down some, but this is mainly because I am not entertaining. I usually have friends and family over for dinner, or snacks for movie night, or brunch etc. quite frequently. I really miss that! I am also no longer making those quick stops to the grocery store on my way home from work anymore and am eating what I have on hand. I have also noticed that there haven't been many sales.

    Mine has gone up, but I am doing so much shopping at Walgreens, which is expensive for groceries. But worth it for the reduced risk! And my DIL shops for me, but she is not one to look for a bargain.

    Up by a lot. Now were are eating most meals at home so it is mitigated by not eating out. But at the same time DH has been eating at work for the past 4 years and we haven't had to feed him. Yikes that means we've been "subsidized" by work at least $10/day x 5 x 50 = $2500 in food.
