Hubs is back to work and I need to get busy and get a few sewing projects done. The shop has been slow with the snowy weather people just don't get out. That is a good thing because they drive like idiots when they do. I was able to get birthday cards out yesterday and need to do a deposit today. People are slow paying at the studio for the first time all year. Have you noticed that I have not been complaining about it? But this month it is like pulling hens teeth. Posters are done for the upcoming show so I need to get commercials done and orders in for those.
We went to the grocery store and pharmacy last night spent $39.00 at pharmacy and $ 27.00 at grocery store. See meds always cost more than food. Too bad we cannot eat medicine. It might come to that.
I know I should not complain but I am tired of the dull cold overcast weather. I really want spring. Although I love snow and we need moisture. Three more weeks and we should see signs of spring I hope. Then I will complain about yard work, just wait and see. Because I have mastered the art of complaining.
I want to bake some cupcakes for hubbies work, will probably do that later today. I have valentine cupcake wrappers and cute little cake decos I bought on sale last year. I also need to make at least 5 pans of short bread for Valentine gifts and treats. I always buy the cupcake wrappers and decos after the holiday at Albertson's, they are usually marked down to .25 cents. I think I have every holiday in a bin upstairs.
This is my definition of the difference between cheap and frugal. I buy cupcake wrappers and decos on sale for .50 cents. I stock up on cake mixes when they are less than $1. I make my own frosting, and I even have chickens for the eggs. Then I make cupcakes several times a year for hubbies office. A cheap person would not make someone else a treat. A frugal person will do it up well but not really spend alot of money. My cost of sending a batch of cupcakes to office less that $2. It brings a little happiness for very little money.
I have pockets to put on lab coats, a blouse to hem and a jacket to cut out so I am off to the sewing room.
Have a great and productive day!
