Yes, I've kept my money in the vault this week!
Monday - No Spend
Tuesday - No Spend
Wednesday - No Spend
Thursday - I cannot tell a lie; I bought a coffee for $1.65
Friday - ?? I will be doing some food and beverage shopping for Thanksgiving weekend. Because of my frugal ways this week I have $$ left to cover these expenses:) We have been invited to my nephew's cottage on Lake Erie (near Port Dover) for the holiday weekend. He and his partner bought it this past summer and they've invited us a few times but this will be our first visit.
I am so excited as the weather is supposed to be PERFECT!! We are going to go hiking, sit on the beach, bask in the sun and no doubt I will put back on a pound or two! Well, I have to show how thankful I am for this year's incredible harvest lol!
Tomorrow I'll be buying two pumpkin pies from our highschool's culinary class and I 'll be picking up a bottle or two of wine to take with us. Saturday I'll be picking up a few things at the farmer's market (squash, bread etc) and then I'll be cooking OUR turkey and all the fixings for a Saturday night Thanksgiving dinner with immediate family. Early Sunday we'll head to my nephew's place and come back on Monday - a nice little get-a-way!! Ohhhh my stomach hurts just thinking about all of that rich food. I will try to take very small portions so that I don't totally negate the progress I've made in weight loss.
Tomorrow I will post my weekly wrap and then I likely won't post again til Monday night. I have lots to write about such as goals and challenges for 2012. Lots of you have been writing about similar things and it's got me thinking. Which is good.
Well, gotta go. I want to see some of the NHL game tonight (Montreal vs Toronto...go Habs!) and then see who our provincial premier will be for the next 4 years...yes, it was election day today! Did I vote? Of course!!
Ok, bye for now!
