In Life This Week, I went out one time in the last 7 days to go through the drive-thru at Walgreens and pick up a couple of prescriptions.
Life According To Ivy:
Ivy doesn’t deviate from her routine. She plays, she eats, she sleeps. And in between she likes to stare out the windows and watch birds flit around.
Ivy is also the bug watcher. If there’s a bug in here, Ivy will find it.
Ivy is not a snuggle-bug, unfortunately. But every evening she loves to sit in my chair with me and be combed while I stream a TV show.
During the day her favorite spots to sleep is on the couch or in my chair at the foot of the recliner.
And at night I don’t know where she sleeps unless she’s sleeping in my bedroom on the stack of quilts. Occasionally while I’m reading at night she will take a nap on the bed.
At the moment Ivy is on the living room cupboard watching out the window for birds in the bushes, one of the delights of her day.
I tried getting meals delivered to my door through Freshly. The meals were pretty good. But probably not as good as the cost. However, you should figure in that you don’t have to go shopping for food and someone else cooks it.
Yes, it was very convenient to get meals to my door and then just microwave them for a few minutes.
What was not convenient was that the big box the four meals came in was very heavy to carry down to the dumpster with what they had wrapped the food in to keep the meals cold.
With every step to the dumpster that box seemed to get heavier.
Were the meals tasty? They were good, but not quite what I want to pay for on a continuing basis.
Was the price per meal too high? Well, if I had to buy every ingredient for their meals, the price probably would be in line.
What was my biggest complaint? Carrying the heavy box to the dumpster.
So I canceled after one week.
I enjoyed the meals from the grocery store, but fear they were high in calories. And I sure don’t need to gain more weight.
There was a time when I cooked every night. It was when my daughters were growing up. But now they’re all grown up with families of their own.
Now at my age I want simple.
My Daily Routine:
I spend the daytime hours working on this blog. There’s always something that needs doing. Optimizing posts for SEO. Redoing old posts for SEO. Taking and editing photos. Coming up with post ideas, then writing them.
I try to keep up with what’s new in blogging, Google and their ever-changing algorithms, etc. Then you’ve got to keep up with expenses for taxes, etc.
There’s always something to do to maintain a blog on a regular basis.
