Earning Sunday

Yesterday was a good day. The cat started feeling better around noon and is fine now. I got the upstairs vacuumed. It takes more now that I have to vacuum the bonus room carpet too, haha! But it really didn't need it, since we've hardly been in there. I'm not going to do it every time I vacuum upstairs. It's a big room! I got our sheets and pillow cases washed and the bed remade. In between I managed to earn almost $7 on MTurks, not bad for a weekend day. I haven't earned anything yet this morning.

I took a short nap in the afternoon and then got up and made peanut butter cookies. At 4:30 dh said he wanted to go into town to get some food for dinner from the store deli, so we did that. This time I tried some chicken bites that had a honey garlic glaze/sauce on them. They were really good. Since we were at the store I also picked up a tub of margerine and a half gallon of ice cream. I haven't bought ice cream in a long time and keep forgetting to get some every time I grocery shop. I'd like to make a cake one of these weekends, but every time I think about it, I realize I have no ice cream and dh only likes cake with ice cream. Since I just made cookies, I'll probably wait and make a cake next weekend, but at least I have the ice cream now.

The neighbors DIL and kids went home finally, yesterday. I think they took their dogs with them, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

I was kind of hoping dh would have wanted to go into the lumber store to get some of the stuff he needs to start on his shop lofts. Maybe this week he will. I think he's overthinking it all on how best to build it.

As I've sat here typing this blog post out, I've managed to earn $2.10 in Mturks, almost to my halfway daily weekend goal. My brain is telling me, ok you earned almost $7 yesterday and it costs $7 to subscribe to a month of Apple+tv, that works good :)

My dd just texted me. She is at the airport, early this morning, going on a business trip for a few days. She is not happy that she's having to spend her whole day off/Sunday traveling, but apparently she kind of has to go along with how the purchasing agent half of her group plans it out, at least as far as when to be there. She can book her own flight though and for some reason the PA booked hers into an airport 1.5 hours drive from where they are staying/meeting with the supplier, when there is an airport in the city of destination. DD booked her flight to the small city. She said she's not spending half the day at the airport and flying halfway across the country to then spend 1.5 hours driving in a North Dakota, LOL. Especially because it's like 10 degrees there and on Wednesday when she flies back out, it's supposed to be snowing. Nope, not driving 1.5 hours in the snow in a rental car. Just dumb. 

Last evening I got an email that an e-book I reserved through the library was now my turn, so now I have something to read this week. It's the latest in the Jack Reacher series.

And just like that I got another $1 Mturks study/survey to complete and I earned a $5 bonus from it! Now I'm up to $8.10 for today already. Yay!


  1. Have you ever waited so long for a library hold that you've forgotten you requested the book? That happened to me with "Wolf Hall." I received a call from the library that my book was available, and had no idea what it could be. I think I might have squealed when I saw it on the shelf. Somehow, I asked for large print, too. I may make that a habit going forward. It was very nice to be able to read a book without my readers on.

    1. I have done that many time! Sometimes it takes months for book to become available. Before I started reading ebooks I one time accidentally got a large print and was like "oh! this is great" and started getting them often haha. Now I just increase the font size on my ipad

  2. I'm glad Amos is feeling better:)
