November Expenses and Shopping in Port Lavaca

This morning was cloudy and 50F (10C) at 8 a.m. and not as much wind as yesterday. I took off for my morning walk/run and exercise.

Here are our expenses for November in both U.S. and Canadian dollars. Anything paid in U.S. dollars I calculated in Canadian dollars at the exchange for that date and vice versa so you can see that the Canadian dollar is no longer at par! Our largest expense this month was truck fuel but considering we drove from Ontario to Texas, I don't think the amount is too bad. I'm hoping for better results for December though!

Pyro came to visit a couple of times today.

Late this morning I went in to Port Lavaca to get groceries and look around. I also stopped at a doctor's office and was told if we come in tomorrow morning we could get flu shots - $25 each. On the way in I went to the post office, then stopped at McDonalds for lunch. They no longer have Asian salads so I got a southwest salad I picked up some stuff at Ace Hardware that I've been looking for, stopped at Payless and Bealls but didn't see anything I couldn't live without. I went to HEB and got some groceries, then on to Walmart for more stuff. I also got a new pair of sneakers at Walmart as my old ones are starting to hurt my back. I can always tell when the heels are worn out by how my back feels. Hope the Dr. Scholls that I got work ok.

When I got back Gordon wanted to go for a drive over by the marshes and in to Indianola for sunset so we piled in the truck. Here are a couple of photos.

I also made a pizza for Gordon for his dinner and since I had eaten out for lunch I had a sandwich, some avocado, celery and grapes.

We did reach 68F (20C) today and the sun came out this afternoon so it turned out to be a nice day after all.
