In the wee hours last night a smoke detector started chirping (low battery). I listened for a few minutes to figure out it was the one in the hall outside the bedrooms, then struggled for several minutes to get the replacement battery into the little compartment and for it to line up with the contacts. It's the 9V type that is typically plugged into one of those caps for the positive and negative terminals, but this one you slide into the plastic case and it rests against the connections. I need to change the others so they're all in sync instead of playing the "where is the chirp coming from" game throughout the year.
A batch of beans is finished and stored in jars in the freezer, with a bowl for dinner tonight, served over rice. I have just a couple of more purchases to make tomorrow, then am entering a "no spend" month challenge for myself. I'm inspired by a friend who has taken his bullet journalling to a level I've never seen, but he's keeping good track of the bills as he pays off credit accounts. I think adding a couple of dedicated bill-pay pages to mine will do the same thing without all of the arts and crafts he put into play.
I have a package I prepared to list on eBay, but when I got ready to write up the listing realized I need to take another photo of the item so have to unpack it and set it back into the photo cube. Then repack it. Bummer
