We live excited lives around here, the Ultra Frugal Family…(Just kidding! But you knew that already). Seriously, frugal family fun and recreation has been our normal way for quite a while. Being homebodies definitely makes it easier.
Here was our frugal fun for the day:
- Jogging--for UFF Mom. I love that running is an activity which requires very little in the way of gear. A good pair of shoes and a sturdy running bra if you're a woman are about the only requirements. UFF Dog and I went out for a nice long (9 mile) slow run today while UFF Dad was working at his desk. A bonus was listening to music, which helps me go farther.
- Library movies! We have serious wealth right now. Last night we watched About Time, which I really enjoyed (and got a little teary towards the end). UFF Boy even joined us for about half of it. Other things I have waiting on the library shelf include Indian Summers, Season Two, The Knick, Season 1, and Meet the Patels.
- A reading date, for UFF Dad and Mom. We had talked about a coffee date, with a coffee card he won, but opted instead for a couch date (we are thrilling that way). I made popcorn and chocolate pudding. I might have added a little glass of whiskey for myself. We are currently reading out loud The Body in the Library, our third Agatha Christie novel. Usually, UFF Dad reads while I knit, but he's still recovering from laryngitis, so we switched it up. This very cozy date resulted in our both falling asleep and taking a mini-nap (any parents reading who know that falling-asleep-while-reading feeling?).
