I had errands to run. It's the only day of the week with no softball practice, or games, or PTO meetings, or church bazaar meetings, or...well, you know.
It's my one day of the week to catch up on cleaning, or outside chores, or, well...everything that doesn't get done on a weekday.
I wish I could just sit around with a book and read every Saturday. It would be heaven.
But it's not reality, unless I'm sick. Which I wasn't today, so it was errand and hard work day.
Grace went with me in the morning. We got gas, went to Menards for more insulators for my tiny tomato plants (which went in the ground today...along with peppers and cabbage that I grew from seeds in the kitchen window), the library to return books, the resale shop where I sell our clothes, and then I asked if she wanted to stop at Goodwill.
Well, her answer is ALWAYS the same. Um, Yes. Hello. It's shopping. There might be something for me.
You know the drill.
When I drove up, I noticed it was a 50% off day. This can be a good and bad thing all rolled into one.
You see, we pulled in about 1 hour after they opened. On 50% off days they can be extremely busy, like no carts available busy, or...like today.
Today, it was a good thing. It wasn't too busy, and I stumbled upon some GREAT things.
That's WHY I surf Pinterest.com People. For ideas for stuff like this!
Now, I'll be honest...the Penmanship book.
The small tin...
It will become a very cute little pin cushion with vintage fabric.
The small file folders...
The frame...to be used...I'm not sure how, but it will get a dose of spray paint once I decide on the color.
The large piece of Styrofoam will be used to stand up the rings I'm making for my ETSY shop.
I also scored a new pack of scented vacuum bags, a large container of small paper cups for Evan's state project on Wednesday, an Elle shirt for me, and some brand new Velcro curlers that Grace wants to try in her hair.
I used my $5 off coupon, and my total bill....$4.75.
Made a great start to my day.
Then I came home and worked my tail off in the garden, and got a farmer's sunburn to prove it!
How was your Saturday?
