After a breakfast stop, I came on home and spent the day knitting, watching the Mariners lose and just doing stuff. I was watching TV last night when I kept hearing cheering like there was something going on at the stadium which I knew there was not.
I finally went out on the terrace to see if I could figure out what was going on and it was the bar down the block which was, apparently, full of people watching that stupid fight. While I think boxing is stupid and that particular match way stupid, I do like living where I can hear the cheering. I think that's fun.
Today, if I can wait long enough, I want to walk to Harry's for brunch which is in the block past the baseball stadium. It's a little more than half a mile. They don't open until 10. It's 7:30 now. I could walk v e r y s l o w l y... but no. I'm not starving right now and I have coffee so maybe I can wait.
Looking out today and, actually, the rest of the week, I have nothing on my calendar. One of those great weeks when anything can happen and if nothing does, that's cool, too.
I spent some quality time with my finances yesterday. I am lucky enough to have enough money to live on for now and, hopefully, until I die. It provides me great freedom but I still feel the need to be responsible with it so that it will last as long as I need it to and, really, just to be responsible.
I don't work well with a tight budget but I do like to keep a mental reign on the $$. And make sure I have enough cash on hand (or in the credit union) to live for a couple or three months. So from time to time, I revisit my money plan spreadsheet. I review my recent spending and make sure it's sustainable and that my money is going for things I want. And that I have sufficient ready just in case cash that will sustain me over a couple of months. So that's what I did yesterday.
My rainy day fund got dipped into while I was waiting for Social Security to kick in. I just got it back up to what it should be. Next on tap is saving up for my next big frivolous purchase. I want one of those fancy bidet toilet seats that washes and dries your butt with every visit.
I think I can squirrel away enough $$ from everyday stuff to get one next month or sometime this Summer. There are about a biscillion different ones to pick from so I'll need that time to figure out which one I want.
Now I think I'll get up and get dressed and maybe do some reading before I hit the road to brunch.
