I like to hear what everyone did today! Rod, that was smart to have your loved ones avoid driving in bad weather.
My one daughter and her partner left this morning at 6:30 am so she could get to work on time at 9am. Brian and I got up to make them scrambled eggs, toast, and coffee to send them on their way. Now it's just Brian, me, and Brian's son JP, and he'll be leaving tomorrow.
We had gone to Thanksgiving at a friends' house, so we had no leftovers to enjoy.
We three decided to make a semi-anti-consumerism statement by going to our local GoodWill store and checking through all the second hand clothes.
I just came along for the ride but it wound up with them buying nothing and me nabbing some great skirts for going contra dancing in. (I go to 2 or 3 dances a month) Apparently no one else had wanted these skirts- twirly flare-shaped with various weird fabric patterns from the 70's- perfect for swirling and spinning during the dances. Anyway- there were quite a few of these 'unwanted' wacky skirts so I got seven fun dance skirts that had been marked $7.50 each, but with today's additional sale, they wound up costing only $5.50 per skirt. MAJOR SCORE!!- seven dance skirts for $25 ! Most excellent- I'm like set for years now.
Also got a fistful of nice vintage butter knives and soup spoons for only 25 cents each. I always buy used silverware- it goes with all my garage sale dishes.
Then we came home, I took care of my sick cat Pearl, and then I made a big bowl of apple salad with chopped apples, walnuts, dates, golden raisins, and yogurt. We're just having that for dinner. I'm pretty sleepy after getting up so early, so bedtime will be early tonight.
Those irritated by grain of sand best avoid beach.
