I'm so glad that it's Spring. We have had an unusual Winter in the South. Snow was in the forecast almost every week, and we did get a pretty good one. But, just because it's Spring doesn't mean that our cold weather is behind us. There are reports that we may see some flakes of snow on Monday. I hope this is our last bout with Old Man Winter!
The past few days have been gorgeous! I've been out of work for spring break this week. And, while the weather was not awful, it was Friday before Mr. Sun made an apprearance. It's amazing how a little sunshine can lighten your mood and put a spring in your step. Kevin and I took advantage of the wonderful weather today and took a short motorcycle ride to a local coffee shop. It's one of our favorite things to do. It was our first ride this year. We are not die-hard bikers who ride in any kind of weather! But, give us some warmth and sunshine, and we are SO there! It was nice. I always enjoy getting out and riding with him. It's a way to just get away from the daily grind, if only for a while.
In other news, I've started another blog. I know, you're saying that I can't even keep this one up-to-date! I try, I promise! But, I have been couponing for over a year now, and I have had several people ask me about it. So, I began by getting a email list together of people who would like to learn my strategies. It's not all about coupons, but about saving money, in general. After I began sending out the emails, I had people tell me that I should have a website and get paid for doing it. Well, there are a ton of those types of blogs and websites out there! Where do they think I've gotten all my information? But, I decided to bite the bullet and do it. After all, we have about 2 grocery stores in our city, not counting the Hispanic ones. Foodland and Piggly Wiggly are not that well known to all those blogs that I read, so there is room for me to make my mark in the money-saving blog world. Eventually, I hope to make a little money off the ads or something, but all in due time. Right now, I'm concentrating on getting it up and going pretty good. If you would like to check it out the address is http://savingonsandmountain.blogspot.com/. Sand mountain refers to the area in which I live. They call this Sand Mountain because there is a lot sand mixed in with our dirt. I have also set up an page on Facebook called Saving on Sand Mountain. I often post Internet freebies & deals, also. So there's something that everyone will find useful, not just us on Sand Moutain.
Now, I'm out to spend some more time with my family. We have been on a movie kick this week. Tonight we are watching Armored. I'll be musing with y'all later!
