The harbour hopper tour was so much fun, my mom is with us and the kids love having gramma even at their ages.
    I am really looking forward to our week away for family wedding with Grandma/everyone together. It's important for sure! Have a great trip!

Saved my pc offer for hot meals from last week and picked up a roast chicken for dinner tonight. Saving where I can.
    How's the weather? Best friend and partner were there in first two weeks of July and it was raining all the way on their drive to NS. She said next time a flight is in order.

    The retail sales tax is higher in the Atlantic provinces. Think NF is the highest.

    Yesterday, I did an early (before 7am) walk for containers, after the moody sky finished with the rain. Could feel the humidity rising by 7:15 am. Found 5 containers, a quarter (yay) and a Chapters gift card (balance checker says $2.48 left!). Popped into Walmart for the 97 cent paper (400 pages) and checked on the Bic Atlantic pens (3 or 4 pk, including pastel or comfort style or original) which are $3.47 until Sept. 15/19 (ON). No 12 pks of pens on the shelves, so they are truly online only items as website indicates.
    Managed to watch two Korean movies, then noticed some of my zucchini had liquified so I dealt with the remaining ones in saute form and also cooked the two red potatoes into a quick mash with butter. The breezes outside were great when the wind picked up but indoors, it was too humid (thanks Coke for getting me through part of the day with ice too).
    Had an early rising today but was not in a mood to do laundry. Forecast possible storm around suppertime, so plan is to do some hand laundry and hang it outside then do a fast mowing in the shady parts of the lawn.

    Was so happy to have enough change to buy a Pepsi this morning! Definitely a heatbreaker for me.

    Saturday night, I finished my fast and furious weeding of Mom's part of the garden. It's on her to do the upkeep if she bothers.
    Have some heavy yard bags to put by the curb tonight. No plan to cook unless it's for fresh rice with herbs! Probably will be lazy-just boil the water and rice then let pot sit on the stove for 15min without heat. Should work.

    Urgh!! I have to stop shopping online. Overspent this month and need to cut back drastically next month. I keep buying little things, but they add up. Any suggestions, besides cancelling my intenet?

    Have someone trustworthy hide your payment cards?

    Purposely get your password wrong several times (think 4x or 5x)for your online debit card access. Your account will be locked and you'll only be able to use your debit card at the bank or ATM but not in-store or online. My card is locked for 4 months now and I have no Internet at home yet (need a device) in order to reset and update my bank card online. Sigh-I miss shopping at Well.

    Indigo has 20% off SMEG kitchen appliances until August 4, if you are fans of the retro styling.
