    My Hellmann's loving peeps. The small jar (445ml) and small squeeze (340ml) are on for $3 at No Frills starting today.
    Use $1 coupon (Dec 31 expiry) Not a bad deal. Will figure out what we will use up to expiry date and stock us up.

    Had an early morning cancellation for todays work. My poor client's husband had a really bad night (he has dementia). My heart breaks for her with all the stress of caring for him plus her own health issues.

    So since I have the day off I managed to detail the inside of the car including cleaning the inside windows, Iíve done 3 loads of laundry and Iím Plato head out shortly to the horticulture location of the university to get my veggies, especially tomatoes. I might try to get the car washed if I have the timeÖ..and energy.

    We used our Telus rewards to get $100 in Starbucks so I used that free money to grab a latte this morning and received 60 bonus stars by ordering before 11am offer and will be awarded close to 29 more for double star day today. Free coffee makes me happy.

    I ordered my nail conditioner from TSC this morning and saved $11 on it. Hotel booked for a night when I get my hair done in September and now just to try to plan stuff for our other vacation time.

    Off to get my veggies. Hope everyone has a great day and stays cool and safe.

    I'm working on laundry today on my breaks. My 1st large load is all hung up ready to dry.
    Bedding in the dryer.
    Whites in the washer.
    Folded towels to put away and a basket of clean stuff to deal with.
    Made a Daiya pizza for lunch, had 2 slices and DS ate the rest.
    Kitchen is clean.

    Just got back from the university and got my grape tomatoes. I grabbed 7 bags (ziploc sandwich bags stuffed) for $3 each and 2 cumbers for $2. They are sooooo good. I also got scolded by some old dude . He proceeded to tell me that there were lots of people coming in and I should leave some for him! I just politely told him to have a great rest of his day. Sorry if you canít schedule your time properly to get here in time. I however managed to arrive early and have to stand in line outside in the hot sun with no shade just over 20 minutes before they opened and I was like the 20th person in line. Itís a very popular place. Oh well, I got what I needed and there are no limits and he didnít complain about the people cleaning out the beans, large tomatoes and lettuce since he wasnít interested in those. What a sad little man.

    Now itís back to laundryÖÖ..

    Bed is made!!! I tossed it in the wash at 9am and finally made at 3pm! I learned long ago to do bedding 1st so you get the bed made during the say and not leave it till you are ready to crawl in!
    I think I need to close the windows. It is feeling hot in the house. Or maybe its because I am running around and I will feel better after my shower soon.

    I've decided on not making dinner tonight. Eat leftovers/fend for yourself

    @harbie I didn't realize you can get Telus rewards?

    @harbie Your market score at the university is reminding me that McMaster University students do operate a fresh produce cart once per week. I'm not near the campus and have yet to visit the local farmer's market in Ancaster. Still on my to-do list (local market) but it may have to wait until August.

    Our family is getting through that watermelon from yesterday. I have a few slices left but they'll be gone soon.I've even had watermelon in early am when mouth was dry-the fruit is more hydrating than plain water.

    Managed to do an evening shop at Walmart for bandages and a few things plus two packs of Boost Simply+ *and redeemed the two coupons for the Simply+*. Kept putting off the shop but the debit card still had some spending room left and I obliged. I was down to last bandages of the day. Still rather sweaty tonight despite a cooling breeze. Thankful the insects did not eat me alive (I did not take along a long sleeve shirt).

    Fortino's digital flyer shows Hewitt's Small Batch ice cream (half litre for $6.99). Product is not showing up on the website. I have to see if my local store has it since I haven't popped into Denningers for the regular Hewitt's ice cream (it will not survive over an hour by bus in this heat even in my insulated bag so I won't chance it). My mini waffle bowls are lonely since decent ice cream seems to be absent from our freezer (Mom has not eaten her frozen sorbet or dessert so far).

    Sobey's flyer shows Pure Leaf Iced tea (the large bottle) on sale for $2.99 this week! I should have stocked up when Fortinos' had the offer two flyers ago.

    Good Morning Everyone,
    Well this week did not go as planned.

    A large number of us may have been exposed at work and although the Government regulations do not say we need to quarantine, to be safe work has sent us all into quarantine until Monday. If test negative Monday morning we can go back. It is a little difficult as we are now running super short staffed with some of us trying to cover remotely in jobs that really are not remote jobs. But, we are making it work.

    So far no additional positives, we all tested yesterday, some tested today, some are waiting until tomorrow since a negative test does not allow us to into work.

    This is the first time I have had to test and let me tell you, not a nice experience but it is what it is.

    I am feeling fine but cannot help but be a little worried, even before this I was struggling with my sinuses (the day this happened, I almost did not go in because I woke up with a massive sinus headache but after some meds I felt better and headed in), plus I got my booster shot so if I do start to not feel well not quite sure what the cause might be. But that is why we have the tests.

    Not sure what the weekend will bring, we will see what happens.

    Happy Friday Everyone
