    Thanks for starting the thread @lilo0003 for starting this thread .
    I was very disappointed with the out come Maple Leafs and Habs game. In my opinion the leafs played was not hungry for a win

    Good morning! Another sad Leaf fan here The house was pretty quiet last night after 930pm.

    The sun is shining! I am going to move my table in the back yard and move my potted tomatoes etc outside. Add my tomato cages as my plants are so tall. So proud that I grew them from seed . Excited for tons of fresh cherry tomatoes for eating and canning/freezing. Still have a few bags of marinara sauce I made last year. Think I will take one out now for DS to go with his stuffed pasta I just took out for the freezer. Feeding DS from the house freezer the next few days. Lots of stuff to use up. I will re-purpose it and he will never know it was leftovers .

    ok one tomato plant moved to a bigger pot. This is a project! Off to dig out more pots and get them all out!


    ...ok powered through and all the tomato plants that were inside are all moved into larger pots and each have a wire cage. I have a pot of tomatoes and peppers on my front porch that I think I will plant in the ground at the front of the house on the weekend. Excited to see how it all grows!

    Why do people pull for the Leafs when it's so much quicker and easier to hit yourself in the head with a 2x4? ;p

    Good Evening Everyone,
    Long day here, I was up at 5 am to get stuff done for work that needed to be done before we opened. Since yesterday was month-end we have to log out right near close so they can close the month so I could not do it last night so this morning was the only option. I got it done, went into the office for a few hours and then came home to work. I have to do another mass upload/download that has to be done when we are closed so working on that now.

    I had big plans of taking a break and making a nice dinner, but I am not feeling so good tonight. Mom pulled out some Homemade Bolognese from the freezer and boiled up some pasta and dinner was served.

    I did take a break to take a nice long how shower, this has totally become a guilty pleasure for me. Nothing like a hot shower, only downside is I am usually ready for bed afterwards LOL.

    I had a bit of a headache last night so I went to bed early, liked tucked into my bed ready to fall asleep before 8 am. I just happened to look outside before bed and laughed a little in my head. I can remember as a kid fighting with my parents that it could not be bedtime because it was still light out but as an adult I do not care, it was light out and it was bedtime.

    Mom did laundry well I was at work so I did help her fold it once I got home. That is about it for the housework today and I am good with it.

    Hope everyone had a wonderful day

    Well... It has been finalized, we get our last COVID bonus from work in this weeks paycheque, since I pretty much work 40hrs every week as a part timer, I will be getting the top part timer bonus. That will work out to an extra $150.00 from Loblaw. And I have to plan my next round of shopping around the news of another Staff Double Discount week, from June 13-19th, we will get 20% off with our discount card, so planning to do as much shopping then as I can...

    That Sobeys shopping trip didnít go as planned. I was hurried at the till because a lineup formed behind me and the teller needed the supervisorís help. Fortunately that supervisor is great and usually works the evening of 10% off Tuesday. So I missed getting 40AM because I was unable to see that I was $5.30 below my bonus Air Miles offer.

    I still made out pretty good.
    $41.98 in coupons
    $19.47 for 10% discount
    183AM earned
    Paid $135oop on gift card

    I picked up
    clearance Schneiders for 11x $0.90 after the 10% discount.
    9x $1.35 Cheemo perogies (after 10% discount and Air Miles)
    6x I was paid $0.01 per bag to take them home (after $2 coup, 10% discount, and Air Miles value)
    $0.76 per can of mushrooms (after 10% discount and Air Miles value)
    4x $0.86 Aveeno lotion 71ml (after $3 coup and 10% discount)
    And other deals on carrots, freezer bags, Cheerios, corn flakes.

    I got a rain check for steak and beef roasts. The freeze is full now.

    @Angela273 has your province announced what their plan for September is? Will students be back in school or are they also offering online?

    I heard Ontario will be offering both but I have also read that the health officials are against this plan and want all students to return in school learning in September.

    Our province is already lifting major restrictions based on vaccination rates. They recently announced that the provincial mask mandate will be lifted on July 11. I personally think thatís way too soon. I know people who are currently self isolating for a second time due to being a close contact.

    Schools in SK are all open like usual. Each class goes to online learning for 2 weeks when there is a Covid case, then they are expected back in the classroom. Some school divisions have decided to offer cyber school in the fall while others are closing the online options or waiting until the last minute before making the official decision.

    Cooking up lean beef now for taco meat. Taco salad is on the menu tonight since we have peppers/cucumbers to use up.
    My youngest loves it as much as I do. Then they can make tacos tomorrow with the leftovers.

    I just went to laundry room and folded the towels that were in the dryer from last week. Think I will putter down there later today and post some stuff for sale. So much storage room down there that I want back.

    I had a $10 sale yesterday on 2 sport shirts I posted while cleaning out my dresser/closet 2 weeks ago I think it was. I sold every item that I posted which I'm surprised about. I am about $100 away from my vacation fund goal. I am totally above the actual cost of a trip down South but wanted $400 on top for parking(at airport) and spending money etc. So happy to have that almost done and ready for when a trip can be booked with out using my savings etc. Will have to decide what my next goal will be for the money. Before I would put it in my Summer fund jar but I have that covered this year (my jar has lots of money in it and our Niagara Falls trip is almost paid for with credit on credit card)

    Off to water my tomato and pepper plants.

    Laundry is on the go! Moving all the hangers to the laundry room and the plan is to hang right on the hanger and into the proper closet ( I space it in closet to dry and make sure door is open. I use to do this but stopped and I need get back at is since it saves so much time.
