One Hundred Even

I needed groceries and decided to go on the coldest day of winter so far. It didn't take long to realize I need my thermal underwear today as soon as I stepped outside. The digital readout on the way home from Wal-Mart showed 15 F. When I checked the weather earlier, it was in the 20s with a wind chill of 1F. So, it's gotten colder. So, as I got to the checkout, and the clerk finished ringing everything up, she said, you won't see that again, and she said $100 even. No, I don't think I ever will. Unless I duplicate this mornings purchase. When I got home, I realized I only forgot one thing, Apple Cider Vinegar. I still have a couple cups left in the gallon jug, so I'll be good for a little while. This morning I'll be leaving to get my hair taken care of. Hopefully, by the time I leave, I'll be thawed out. Until then, I'm going to take care of notifications. Hopefully, I can get enough down that it won't seem overwhelming the next time I log in. I didn't go to the pool this morning, and the severe cold is the reason why. My knees were in rebellion all night due to the new system coming in. They're doing good now that I've been up for a few hours, for which I'm grateful. My new suit is supposed to arrive by Friday, so I might just wait until then to go back to the pool. Writer's Guild went great last night, and I got one more chapter edited for Destination Love. I also edited a chapter of A Score to Settle as I'm also reading that one at Writer's Guild and getting feedback. Well, that's all the news I have. How is your day going? Thanks for reading.

That's very cold, it's quite mild in England today. That $100 was very unusual.

I'm glad you had a mild day. Yes, it was and I don't expect to do it again.

Brrrr I'm cold just reading about the temperature there. It's getting colder here too and my knees are complaining. Hitting $100 on the head is pretty unusual. Sounds like you're having a good day. Things are good here. I'm making my grocery list but it's doubtful it will be $100

It was unusual, but I'm glad it happened and I could tell about it. It's warmed up. It's 31, which is the high for today.

That sure is something! What do you use the apple vinegar for?

It's a great meat tenderizer as well as good for weight loss. Since I have only 9 teeth and all on the bottom, I need my meat as tender as possible and it works awesome. It also gives it a great flavor.

@just4him It's our high, too. But still snowing and still 100% chance of snow for the rest of the day.

@xander6464 Sigh. I will just need to live off your high. I'm not going to get that feeling here anytime soon at least not where snow is concerned.

I see you are in Wisconsin. When I was a child I LOVED the Little House on the Prairie books which were set in Wisconsin so I remember how incredibly cold it can get in your part of the USA.

I've never read the books, but I did watch the show it was taken from. Yes, it can get very cold here.

@just4him Oh they were my absolute childhood favourites. I truly recommend you get a set and give them a read.

@boiboing I'll need to find them, most likely on Amazon. My daughter read them as a kid and I know she liked them.

$100 even? You'd be battling to do that if you tried.

Do you use a hot pad for your knees? I do and it helps.

I need to get a heating pad. I'm sure it would work, but I never think of it.

You are making me feel cold in my air conditioned condo. . How remarkable to have hit $100 on the head. My doorbell keeps ringing, so I may need to go for another walk. Sheesh!

I think that we had a day of our January Thaw and now it's nasty out there again. Love your $100.00 story. I don't think that I have ever had that happen to me either!

We're in January thaw right now for a couple days with it in the 30s before it drops back down next week. Thanks. I don't think it will either.

To get $100 exactly is a bit unusual
