|Snuggles after the parade and brunch|
I attended my club board meeting and book club. Visited with friends at club crafts group but decided latest project was too "fiddly" for me and would result in throwing my hands up in frustration. Went to my club's monthly luncheon which was fun as usual.
Started planning a party for February 1st. Bought 4 plates at Goodwill so now I have 19 dinner plates to use for a party. I'm trying to reduce what we throw away and not using paper plates is my goal. Those I will save for emergency supplies.
I did little "fix its" like mending the hem of a washcloth and changing batteries in the scale and wireless mouse. Rearranged my clothes storage so I will more readily wear what I have in new ways to combat boredom without shopping.
Decluttered a bit and took the batteries to the recycling bin at the library and some items to Goodwill. Made sure to process food that was on verge of spoiling by making applesauce, veggie stock & banana muffins.
We finally decided on the style and length of shower grab bars to have installed, purchased them and they should be up next week. Then the bath remodel is complete.
Submitted my Medicare cost reimbursement to my health insurance (they reimburse $800/person for a tidy sum of $1600 for us). We got new tires on our car and had a rear brake job done.
Called TIAA-CREF and confirmed that I do not need to take mandatory minimum distributions until next year due to the law change. Also found out they will post what I am required to take by the end of January of that year and I can make the distribution arrangements online or by calling. Have it on my calendar for February 2021 LOL.
