Buying groceries when you haven’t had groceries in a week or two is such a good feeling. somehow in July I bought more than $100 of groceries but ran out surprisingly quick. In an effort to save money I refused to buy any more groceries until the month changed, and now here we are! $81 dollars later I’ll be eating like a Queen for the next little while (the rest of the month if i do it correctly)! I bought 3 frozen pizzas – the only frozen thing i really buy – with the sole intentions of eating them as drunk food. A pretty good investment I think. I found where Sobeys has been hiding the free range eggs (they’re also brown and have omega-3!). This makes me pretty happy because I love eggs but I didn’t like buying the non-free range ones and now my conscience feels a bit better. I found a small jar of Artichoke hearts (the brand name was M’Lord and I loved it) and tossed them into my cart. I’ve recently discovered my love for artichoke hearts, especially on pizza. I’m going to try to emulate the Veggie Pizza from Pi as best as I can.
Groceries, intriguing i’m sure
Last night i spent some time with my momma. we went to the rooms and then she came with me to get groceries. when i came home i threw on a bruschetta pizza (mmm) because i had skipped supper, and ate some of it while i watched hockey. it was a pretty chill but really nice night. my mom had a bag of fruit and 6 pairs of new socks for me. she is an awfully sweet lady.
i’ve been doing a good bit of clothes altering lately. it’s a nice pass time that i couldn’t do much of during school. i wanted to take pictures but my camera’s batteries have died, so oh well. i added lace to the bottom of a dress because i thought it was too short before (somehow the 1 inch of additional length makes a bit of difference) and took off the collar. i hemmed a dress that was a little too long. i really need an iron and an ironing board to finish it but i don’t have one here. I had a men’s red and white vertically striped, size medium american apparel sleeveless dress shirt that i got in a clothing swap in january that i liked a lot – despite it being ridiculously too big for me. so i took off the collar, took in the sides, added three belt loops, made a new collar and added a navy blue ribbon to put through the belt loops. i’m pretty happy with it and want to wear it with shorts whenever it ever gets warm enough to wear shorts.
