Random Bits

Tomorrow is payday and I have $5 left in my wallet and $44.99 left in checking. The $5 will go into my EF envelope for later deposit and the $44.99 will be transferred directly to the Emergency Fund. I am trying to make it a habit to do this with all funds left at the end of each payday week. With that as a goal I have been finding that my urge to spend right up through the week has lessened. I really want to hit $5000 this month for the EF so I am trying hard

I have been doing pretty well with Swagbucks. The last 3 days I hit the daily goal, though I don't think I will today, being is it is at 100 and I'm at 13. I cashed out for one $5 Amazon gift card.

I relocated a $40 gift card for Safeway. DH's work gives one at Thanksgiving and one at Christmas. We used one in California, but had misplaced the other one. The nearest Safeway is 35 minutes away and majorly overpriced, but I am getting so fed up with the Haggen chain since they were bought out that I might actually venture up there.

Haggen used to be my favorite store, but it's really gone downhill since the remodel. Except the prices have gone uphill. And don't get me started on the stench coming from the fish counter. It was so bad on the Memorial Day weekend I decided I am never buying fish from them again.

We have six enormous lemon balm plants growing in the backyard (and some elsewhere) and rabbits can eat that so I am going to harvest some today to give to them. They can have up to two cups of fresh vegetation a day besides their pellets and hay. So far I have given them carrots and their tops, Swiss chard, raspberry leaves, radish tops and blackberry leaves. Lemon balm should be easier to pick then the other leaves (no thorns!) and of course are cheaper than carrots or chard. I am growing chard to give them, but its not got enough on it to harvest yet.

I think I'm having a relapse of the stomach virus I had last week. Either that or I ate something I am allergic to without knowing it. All I want to do is sleep. I am so tired. Definitely going to bed early tonight.

    You might be on the lookout for weeds elsewhere in your yard that the rabbits might eat. They do like dandelions! Or have you seen on pinterest, where people put the ends of celery in water or back in the ground and regrow them...just thoughts on where you might find some free veggies for the rabbits.

    Yeah, they'll actually eat Canadian thistle, which we have an abundance of at the moment. However, I don't want to pick it because it is prickly. I need to get some garden gloves before I'll do that! I'm going to grow parsley, too, because they love it.

    Yeah, I am not bothering with the goal today either (SB) - SBTV mobile keeps hanging on various ads, and I've only gotten one search win - so at about 41. Ugh.

    Hope you feel better.

    Cool to find the gift card....so unexpected. I never shop at Safeway either....way too expensive.
