Free Stuff Friday

July 11th, 2015 at 12:19 am

Today was pretty busy (every day this week has been busy). I managed to get a lot of work done, but also exercised and did some stuff around the house etc.

Here is the Free Stuff from today:
- Got two books from the library for F (Chomp and When you Reach Me)
- While I was there, picked up three magazines for me at the magazine exchange rack
- The pay machine was out of order so I parked for free which is good since I was only there for 2 minutes
- There's been a flooding situation at one of the neighborhoods I work with (I am their Design Review Committee Chair) and it's meant a ton of phone calls. I've been carefully logging my hours; so I guess I've made some extra money this week.
- Tonight is crash potatoes and grilled veggies (courgettes and red pepper). Yum!
- Spent some time today listening to the Undisclosed podcast on my phone (it's a follow-up to Serial; if you were super into Serial, you need to listen to Undisclosed!)
- I have a ridiculous but fun book on my phone by Liane Moriarty (also from the library)
- We'll watch another episode of Celebrity Masterchef tonight (best show ever!)
- I went for a run today (free exercise!) which was both awful (running is awful) and felt great afterward. And I passed another woman who was running like me (I don't know how to explain it - we were both the same age and we were clomping along similarly in our non-fancy running clothes) and we said hi and "keep going!" which felt good!
- Went to the bank to pay down mortgage principal (got a $23 check from our utility and had $327 from our Irish house) - and it was popcorn day! I love popcorn day!

I hope you had some Free Stuff, too!

    I hope F enjoys When You Reach Me! I thought that was a great book when I read it.

    I want to read it, too! But she gets to go first...

    I loved Serial. I can't wait to listen to Undisclosed. Thanks for telling us about it!

    I am listening to my first Liane Moriarty book on my phone! The Husbands Secret. I really like it so far. How funny!

  5. Buendia Says:

    That's the same one I'm reading! I really like it, too... and some of the characters are a lot like actual people I know.

    Laura - I hope you like Undisclosed! It's answering a lot of questions I've had. A high school friend on Facebook mentioned it, and I couldn't believe I hadn't heard of it already! The other podcasts I love are This American Life, RadioLab and Stuff You Missed in History Class. Are there any that you really like that you can recommend?

    OK, time to help F with a bath...
