Oh my goodness, what fun I had yesterday! After chatting with you, I got myself clean and shiny and headed out to the hinterlands.
This is first thing that greeted me when I walked into the Michael's!
When I built my little dream house in 2004 I declared that I wanted a big red sleigh for my front yard filled with presents. I swear to you on all that is holy...I looked and looked and looked for one every year for twelve years, but alas, I could never find one.
(It's a good thing I'm in the apartment and there's nowhere for me to put this, because I would have tied this sucker to the bumper and hauled heiney otta there!)
This is what I went in for:
I saw Miss Caroline on Off the Grid stitching on one of these and decided to give them a try. They are frames covered with aida. They come in a pack of three and normal price is $9.39. (I used a coopun and got it for 50% off.)
They're nicely finished on the back side;
I also got this little bin to store Christmas whatnots...I think it was 70% off:
From Michael's, I headed to the pharmacy to pick up two meds that cost a bloody fortune, but I didn't let this ruin my day. Instead, I stopped at the Martin's and got a nice big salad for dinner and a few small other things to tide me over, and I headed home to watch the TeeVee and stitch:
Today i am in the d-chair doing my thing, Dearies! I will have tomorrow off to do a little more grocery shopping, and then it's back to the d-chair on Sunday so that we can have both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off.
So that's it for now...just behaving myself and looking forward to a latte on the way home as my end of week/attendance treat. Who knows? I might get jiggy with it and go peppermint today instead of cinnamon!
What's jiggy in your neck of the woods today? Come tell me alll about it.
