My great granddaughter, Aslyn Grace, is turning out to be a beauty just like her mom. She is going to make Christmas very special this year. Nothing like babies at Christmas time.
Today was filter changing day at the MoneyPenny household. I change furnace filters with the season, sometimes ignoring summer if I've not used the furnace. My little timer on the Brita also indicated a new filter is in order. I washed out the Brita and soaked the filter and headed for the laundry room to tackle the furnace.
This is the first time that I have changed the filter on my new furnace and I got so irritated that my glasses fogged up and the dogs went and hid. Changing out the filter was nothing but getting that #*^%$# door back on was an exercise in frustration because of this thing:
And there are two of them. The first one worked like a dream but this one would not latch. You may ask why not just leave it?? Well, because the furnace does not work without it being latched. Who knew?? I remember that the guys who installed the furnace seemed to be having trouble getting it to latch but they were always able to do it. Not me. I finally figured that it was a little off, so I stuck a screw driver in the edge and lifted and it went in. I think that this warrants a call to Air-Flo, don't you??
Enough of that. Let's go grocery shopping. QFC is still running the Buy 6, Save 6 promotion on General Mills and Kraft products. Now would be a good time to stock up on GM cereals and there is a coupon ($1/2 12/9/S) to help make it a deal. The two pound brick of Tillamook cheese in on for $4.99 and this is pretty close to a rock bottom price, so I'm going to buy the limit, which is two. It doesn't go bad if you don't open it and I'm a big cheese eater.

Bird Guide Drawing Reminder:
The birds at my feeders are going through the seed like crazy during this cold, windy, snowy weather. They are so much fun to watch as they jockey for position. I hope they aren't fighting but it looks like a little push and shove to me.
Don't forget to leave a comment or like on Facebook to get entered into the drawing for the above pictured book. My neighbor, Tina, is going to pick the winning name on Christmas Eve.
