No Fans Allowed

The fans have been off for two days now. When I got up this morning, even the EcoBreeze was on standby. It was several hours before the temperature in the house got warmer than it was outside which was its signal to kick on.

First course at breakfast was my last mango and the rest of the blueberries. It was still very cool in the house so I had chili for the second course. The temperature in the living room was 66 at 8:38 a.m. The bedroom temp was even lower than that. No wonder I had the comforter and an extra blanket last night.

Since the cupboard is getting bare of fresh-type foods, I searched the ads for bargains. That’s when I discovered the prices at all ALDI stores are not equal. The produce is the same but the prices aren’t. Clicking on the ALDI link brought up the store in Burton, MI. However, I didn’t notice it until I’d printed off the ad and the detail on one of the items that wasn’t legible. It was in the detail that I saw the store was not one of my local ones. The bananas in Michigan are on special for 35 cents a lub. In the local stores, they’re 44 cents. Blueberries are $1.09 per pint in Michigan, $1.29 in my neck of the woods. There are other differences, too, but I’ll know to look for the location after this. It would be nice to get the lower prices but not worth a guilty conscience.

I have a stack of ads printed off. It’s a good thing I get ink for cheap on Amazon. When someone asks advice about which printer to buy, I advise pricing the ink first and then picking out the printer. It’s evident that companies make cheap printers and expensive ink.

My sister didn’t have room for the printer I’d picked out for her so I ended up with it and it’s been a winner.

True, it has a few years on it and there are fancier ones now but I’ll wager no affordable inkjets that are any better.

It’s still cool for the end of July. Twinkle is occupying her heating pad. I have my housecoat around my shoulders for warmth. The waterbed heater has been on all day. I’ll sleep cozy tonight.

    This cool weather is a nice change from normal July heat!

    Blueberries at Aldi here are $1.19/pint. Our sister had checked online and saw $1.09. At least they are less than another stores 2.50.

      Wonder at which location they were $1.09?
