I stopped at Shell for my 5th purchase and was immediately rewarded with 100 AM I do love how fast they pay out. I would have liked to wait until Monday as I have the 1 air mile for every litre of gas but I was almost empty.
    It was a good day for using points and coupons which is a nice change. I even had 4.00 for checkout 51. I need a few things at RCSS so I told DS2 to meet me at the cash. I really need to started taking advantage of his discount.
    @lilo0003 I wish I knew that sooner. I have a laptop that needs work, but not sure where to take it. Now with windows 11 I dread replacement as they are so expensive. My friend keeps saying go to Apple but I can't afford that.

    Tuesday was insane, all I got done around the house was emptying and reloading the dishwasher and making dinner.

    Yesterday I was in a branch but was supposed to leave between 12 and 1 so I could get my own stuff done. Nope, Dad needed to talk to me and then our Regional Manager showed up and needed to talk to me. I left at 5 to 5. I still had some of my own work to get done when I got home so it was a long night.

    Dinner was made but dishes were stacked beside the sink so I will have to do that today.

    I see a few things in the flyers I want to pick up. I thought about not shopping until next week but might just go and get it done so I do not have to think about it.

    Last night I ended up just making perogies bake for dinner, Mom was having a bad day, her knee was really hurting and all of a sudden it was 6:30 with no plan for dinner. Tonight is a mystery I am kind of thinking maybe a stew or something, something that can simmer on the stove all afternoon sounds cozy.

    Happy Thursday Everyone (I typed Wednesday and had to correct myself, yep, that sums up my week).
    @SassyAshley what are perogies bake?

    Last week, I could not locate any kind of e-waste bin at the Halton firehall near the Fairview location of the Longos plaza. Guess that program ended or was closed due to a seasonal deadline?
    @Ciel21 I was told the firehall at Appleby and Fairview has an e-waste bin now. And the firehall also accepts batteries too. I usually drop my batteries off at the library.

    @coupongirl Scene points is terrible! It feels like an interrogation with the info they ask. And if you have some sort of discount on your bill, you don't get the bonus points. Logging into their app is a pain too.

    Not much happening today. Dh is off since he had a some work seminars earlier in the week so we will just hang out. Itís cold but sunny so outside for walks and maybe a run but no biking since I only have shorts and itís way too cold for that. Also planning to get my flu shot this morning (not a needle fan).

    We normally would go to my favourite Starbucks on a day like today but they had a shooting there yesterday . We live 3-4 blocks away at it was at 8:30 am in the drive thru. That location is PACKED especially in the mornings. Apparently itís gang related and they found a burnt out car dumped several blocks away. I know it happens everywhere but it hits a bit differently when itís a place you go to regularly and so close to home. My thoughts and prayers are with all those that innocently were victims of such a traumatic experience.

    On a lighter note Iím heading out now for some sunshine.

    Have a great day everyone and stay safe
    @harbie that is terrible! A shooting so early in the morning - that is scary!!!!

    @barbis9 , you take Frozen Perogies and top them with creamy sauce.

    To make the sauce in a pan melt half a block of cream cheese with 1/2 cup (use 3/4 of a cup we like the sauce a bit thinner) with s sprinkle of Pepper and Garlic powder. Stirring together over medium-low heat until all the lumps are gone.

    Pour over the perogies in an oven-safe dish. Top with Bacon Bits and Cheddar Cheese and bake for 45 minutes in a 375-degree oven.

    I have found that dealing via email with the scene people is a waste of time. They know nothing. I call in and speak to a real person and always get things sorted.

    Good Morning Everyone,
    I decided to take yesterday off and have a me day. I spent the day on the couch, I spent some time on Pinterest trying to find some new recipes I went down a rabbit hole, and set up my Bullet Journal for November. Still need to work on my Budget Journal.

    It felt good in the moment to take the day for me but felt a little guilty about last night. There is just so much I need to get done for work and around the house but that is the issue. That is the thing between the House and Work, I never have a moment where I can just sit down and say everything is done. I can choose to take a "day-off" for me but it comes with knowing things aren't getting done that need to be done. Which sums up my current Mental Struggle.

    My plans for dinner changed last night when Mom got up and said want Pizza, so we made Homemade Pizza for dinner.

    Trying to talk myself into finding some ambition, I feel like I need to prep and cook and bake and get ready for next week but at the same time the ambition level is low today. I was looking for something to make for lunches but nothing is jumping out at me or I am missing something to make the recipe and I am not going to the store today.

    Happy Sunday Everyone.

    @SassyAshley half a block of cream cheese mixed with 1/2 cup of what? I'm not sure if it's just the cream cheese that you melt and put on top?

    Not sure why I was double posting, as this forum usually picks it up.

    Rainy, cold day. Tempted to stay home but I need to go to the Y and exercise in the pool, as I missed my usual class on Thursday. Can't believe how quickly the weather has changed. Shorts two days ago, warm jacket today.

    Did chair yoga yesterday at the library. Much easier on the body than doing the downward dog on a mat.

    Not sure what to make with pork chops today, perhaps scalloped potatoes - its' definitely a food comfort day.

    Has anyone watched any decent series on Netflix recently?
