The number of hits, or page views, was way down in August, but that's normal. It went back up in September, but dropped again in October...which is not usual. Usually people are hunkering down for winter, spending more time on the computer, and wondering how they will pay their heating bills.
However only at your website our computer tries to load all of the pages on the site while I visit making it slower than dial up which we do not have and rather frustrating. No one else has ever mentioned it on this board, so it must just happen to me. I have been trying to post a little bit more lately when I am able. If I think of a great topic I will post it.

But I must be one of the few that are.
I guess I can brag about my DD's frugal birthday dinner. The gifts I got her were a necklace I made myself, a pair of socks I knitted, a travel mug bought on clearance for $3 (I think that was the price, it was in my gift stash and I've had it a while), a pair of PJ pants from a thrift store that had Snoopy on them ($1), and a picture frame with her birthstone on it, also from a thrift store but still unopened in the original box ($1).
There were 6 adults and 2 little ones in attendance. I made pepper steak from a chuck roast that cost $4, the other ingredients were $3 for 5 bell peppers (2 red, 3 green) and a can of tomatoes for 88 cents. Rice, $1. Corn, not sure of the price, it was the last of a large bag from Sam's, we'll call it $1. I used a cake mix (79 cents) and canned frosting ($1) bought on sale. There were the usual additions to the mix, eggs and oil. All told, looks like I fed that group for around $12, with leftovers.
Next up, my BFF's birthday. I'm almost finished knitting her sweater. After that is my son-in-law's birthday, I bought him 2 t shirts on clearance, $1 each. Then it's Christmas, which means I need to work harder at getting presents finished! I still have 8 pair of PJ pants to sew.
