good things come in big packages..... Costco at least! We did a fairly substantial shop at Costco this afternoon. I love that store! But I usually land up spending more money than I'd like to and did so again today but on the positive side.....I have enough laundry detergent to last a year....haha! There are some things I can't get at Costco and have to buy elsewhere, however I don't mind that.

I buy the huge packages of meat, so as well as putting everything away, I also package the meat in smaller portions and freeze them. It's a good feeling to have a fuller freezer again.

For a change of pace, I picked up a pizza to bake for supper. Ok, those are massive and literally one and a half slices filled me to the brim! That makes for a cheap supper for us because the leftover pizza will make a great lunch tomorrow.

It was a lovely sunny day. There are so many rainy days here, I like to sit outside and enjoy a sunny Spring day. I love just seeing all the fresh green leaves on the trees and shrubs, along with all the mix of delicate colours interspersed in between.

I've pulled out the coconut, citrus and fruity smelling lotions. I love to switch up the fragrances for the seasons and also use a lighter daily lotion, except for after-sun exposure when I use one with oils and aloe.

Well, unlike the name of this weekday, it wasn't a sunny day. It started out with a wicked rain storm last night and just remained overcast all day today. It started raining again later this afternoon, but was actually quite nice earlier. It wasn't chilly until the rain started.

I like Sundays. It's Hubby's designated day off and nothing gets in the way of that. It's not that he works six days per week all the time, but Sunday we can count on having off and can plan to go to church and then out for lunch. In the summer we can go to the earlier service and take off to the lake or do some outdoorsy activity. I love it!! This is the first time in years Hubby has booked a regular day off!!!
