It's been a cloudy, rainy day today....but not too dark and dreary. At times it has actually been rather bright outside.......whoa, it's DARK right now. Could be a good thundershower rolling in. It's been raining all day and we do need it so I don't think anyone is complaining. 'Cept maybe my hubby 'cuz he knows it will make the lawn grow and he doesn't like yard work. Too bad for him!
|all those black clouds I mentioned earlier dumped on us|
Of course, I had to stop at the thrift store...and here's what I got today:
*never used Mosaic House Number Tile Kit (originally $14.99 at Hobby Lobby)
*2 magazines (I like to buy previously read mags...the price is much more reasonable)
*boys long sleeve navy shirt
*Red Hat cardigan sweater (dressier than the sweatshirts I usually wear in winter)
....all for a grand total of....drum roll........$3.47. I was tickled! A Red Hat sweater for $1.00??? Guess I just hit it right today. Yesterday, on my way home from work, I stopped at a 'boy' garage sale and picked up a coupld of things for the boys. I called my SIL and she stopped there too. The family had only boys and the items were priced quite reasonably. I really haven't been to many rummage sales this summer, I just don't need anything. Actually, I want to get rid of stuff.
My bff is having a garage sale tomorrow (I hope the rain stops) so I took a box of VHS movies and rubber stamps, and a small box of miscellaneous items over there. No big ticket items....but maybe I'll make a couple of $.
I wanted to bake cookies today and use up some cereal crumbs so I googled and found this recipe: Hearty Oatmeal and Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies. I'll save the recipe an make them again. The cookie jar is full, I am anxious to see how it will look tomorrow morning when I get up (after hubby watches TV tonight and packs his lunch for work).
I'm off work tomorrow! Woo Hoo, can life get any better????
