    Good morning sunshines .

    We had some weird power issues just before 1am. I woke to our air purifier led lights and chimes and thought I was dreaming but after it happened again I got up. It was supposed to be in dark sleep mode but all the lights were on, our microwave was flashing but not the stove and our led kettle light was on but it didnít boil the water inside. After fumbling to set the microwave I was in bed and saw my phone said 12:50 and not the 12:03 the stove showed . Then the snow/ freezing rain was hitting the window like gravel. Needless to say it wasnít the best sleep. Woke up to clear but icy roads and snow on the grass and cars. Should melt shortly.

    Yesterday I grabbed 2 more Nextmilk claimed $2 on CO51, $1 coupon and 10c caddle. PMíd WM broccoli at NF because they were amazing looking at NF and rotten at WM. Iím planning to grab some more before the sale ends. Also got cauli grounds normally $6.99 ( or more) but they rang up at $4.94 so I grabbed 4. Got 100 points and 10c on caddle and 6 AM. Also a vegan mayo and claimed 4 AM but had to submit a missing Airmiles for it.

    Question for those that do Airmiles Receipts. If the offer is for say hummus and you purchase say 3 do you get the Airmiles on each or is it per entire receipt?

    Iím off to the gym for a quick workout before hitting the mall with Dh to look for dress shoes Annís a new suit. All his other suits are WAAAY too big for him and he looks like heís playing dress up in his dadís clothes! All that working out

    @harbie that sounds like a scene from the alien invasion movie Signs!! ( with Mel Gibson and Joaquim Phoenix ) .

    @SassyAshley you'd benefit from the scenario in an Apple+ series called Severance. Basically workers for this huge Company
    agree to have a medical process done to them where the minute they enter the building at work they have NO MEMORY of who
    they are at home!
    Then when they exit work, it all switches back and they have no memory of work while they are at home.

    trailer if you want to get creeped out....lol

    Wow i just called my older half brother in london,ontario.We chatted for a good 40 minutes .

    He told me stories about my dad who passed when i was 16 at age 49.He told me he watched a movie" devils brigade " from 1968 with my dad and he said my dad had tears streaming down his face .He never seen him cry ever.Wow , my dad was in the Korean War and World War 2 .

    Then he told me a storey where in Korea my dad and another guy flipped a coin to go to the village close by and my dad won so the other guy left and he was bombed .I cried hearing stories from my dear dads past .My older brother is 12 years older than me .When my older brother was in his early 20"s he would sit around and talk with my dad and have a beer and a smoke.

    I thanked him for the 2 storeys he told me today .It sure is nice to hear about the past sometimes.

    @harbie itís. For each one purchased so if you buy 3 and itís 3 air miles you get 9 miles and is a limit as noted so a few weeks ago I did the broccoli offer on several receipts over the time frame.
    Friends don't let real friends pay full price.

    Good Morning Everyone,
    They are calling for Rain and possible Thunderstorms here today and I am feeling it.

    I did not get as much done yesterday as I planned, the day kind of got away from me. Today I have some pillows in the washer right now and I have some veggies drying that I washed up well I was making my breakfast.

    Last night instead of just making a Beef Roast, we made Pot Roast Stew, it is a combination of Pot Roast and Stew. Oh my gosh there is so much leftover so lunches are taken care of this week.

    Working on knocking as much work as I can before my meeting this morning. Hoping this afternoon I will be able to take a couple of breaks and knock out a few house things. The list is long so lots to choose from.

    Happy Tuesday Everyone.

    Harbie -yes i can eat normally .He did tell me try to eat on the one side which can be hard to do sometimes.He said i was healing great but the bone needs to build up so 4 months from now i will get a scan and then we go from there.

    I asked can i eat nuts ,he said sure if it bothers you then you wont right.So i will be toothless for awhile still.

    Watched the girls and played memory game with cara and out of 36 animals i got 6 cards right -little cara age 6 got 30 she outbeats me everytime.lol

    Good Morning Everyone,
    I don't know if others do this or maybe it is just me. I was up early this morning and working on all the things (again one small change in policy = multiple manuals updates so knocking those out before I need the manuals) but I have an appointment today and it is making me feel rushed. I am having a mix of feelings of don't forget about the appointment and oh no I am not going to get everything done.

    Also factoring into this is all day yesterday I thought it was Wednesday including I did have a moment of "OH MY GOSH, there is no way I am going to get all of this done in the next two days, what was I thinking," Only to realize it was only Tuesday.

    Last night I was able to knock out a few house things I needed to get done, produce has been prepped and is in the fridge. Garbage was taken out. General tidy was done on the Dining Room Table and the fridge has been tidied. A couple things I did not get done but I am really trying to focus on my accomplishments (the positive) vs what I did not get done (the negative).

    Will see what I can get knocked out after work tonight.

    I took a quick scroll of the flyers this morning, not seeing much for us but will take a better look after work.

    Happy Wednesday Everyone

    @coupon girl , glad you are permitted to eat normally again. When I was toothless it was the 4 teeth IN THE front!
    The temp bridge kept falling out so finally I just left it out and waited on the permanent bridge to arrive.

    So I understand you are allowed to " eat nuts "? As in Will Smith AI nuts? lol

    Good Day! We are getting the crazy weather here... Snowing at the moment.

    DS and I popped out to Canadian Tire/GT and Bulk barn. He needed to pick up supplies for his car (oil change) and he showed me which light switch to buy that he is going to install. I made the garlic veggie/chip dip yesterday and he asked for more cucumbers. I told him they go on sale tomorrow and I will buy lots but we went to GT to get some things. Then I bought him chocolate covered almonds at Bulk barn. Was a nice little outing before the storm.

    Glad I redeemed expiring Feb 29 FPC's yesterday. I have 8 of the $1.50 off Cheez it coupons that expire March 1st so need to go to Walmart tomorrow or Friday.

    Dinner tonight is pasta. Pulled a bag of homemade meat sauce and simmered on the stove and just made fresh pasta. Will have frozen raspberries and cut up apples for a snack later tonight.

    Stay safe today if you are out and about!

    Made myself a little sandwich with a small slice of Montreal Smoked Meat and it tasted as though I had spread an entire teaspoon of salt on the thing. Holy Cow, was it salty. Has anyone ever encountered this? For those of you who eat it fresh in Montreal, is it normally this salty? I never remembered it was this salty.

    Any suggestions? I am thinking about rinsing the meat

    @HermanH , I do not think rinsing it would help as the salt is in the meat since it is cured.
