Frugal deeds for the day: Since I am home alone, I turned the temp up 2 degrees to use the air conditioner less. I finally got around to making the chocolate covered bananas - and tried one (or two). I hit the "Y" since it is air conditioned and I can watch trash tv on cable. Then to Wal-mart to check-out the perennials - I found Rudebekia (sp) for 1/2 priced - and bought a 6 packs of impatiens. None of the seeds I planted in the planter have sprouted - I guess lack of water and this horrible heat wave may be to blame - and a bit of laziness on my part. Anyway, hope the perennials take root and keep coming back each year to some me some $. So far, I have not received another ding letter from the HOA patrol. Hopefully, the pretty flowers will distract them from any weeds. I have not cooked all day - that saves on utilities - right :) Tomorrow, I plan to run a few more errands and look for more stuff to take to our "new" house.
