What I woke up to this morning.........
I think "they" said we got about an inch of the white stuff by the time it stopped. Ok - that is enough - I am ready for Spring already.
On to other things: The wreaths that laid on the counter for days finally got hung one day last week,
and I finally decided to go ahead and put up a tree. However, instead of the usual 7 footer , I bought a 4 foot, prelit one in an urn and just used the dark cranberry and gold ornaments with a little gold bead garland. Can't see very well in picture, but there is a gold glittered snow flake on the top. I had planned to put it on the table behind the love seat, but that did not work out. Never mind the box of ornaments in the chair - I am still "tweaking" .........Maybe I should have gone with my regular tree.
I know I mentioned in an earlier post that I was thinking about NOT putting up a tree at all this year, but I got to thinking (dangerous - I know) . It would be the first year in my life I did not have a Christmas tree and that is "....." years.
I am really running behind in decorating. For years, the tree and other assorted decorations have been up before everyone arrives for Thanksgiving and more often than not, many packages already wrapped under the tree. Not this year.
Just a Ramble: Was out and about most of the day on Saturday - great weather .
One place I planned on going to was HL - NOT !! The parking lot looked liked a zoo, so ditched that idea. Did get a lot other stops accomplished - including DT. I needed to stock up on the aluminum large roasting pans and other sizes. $1 each and the lasagna size I get for casseroles, dressing and the like, you can get 2 for $1 - much higher at the grocery store. Love those things when cooking for a crowd and don't want the massive cleanup afterwards. Not to mention, my casserole dishes are not large enough for the amount I need to prepare.
The main reason for the trip to DT, was cloths for the swiffer. I use to buy the ones there - more in a box and only a $1, instead of the swiffer brand as they are expensive. Well...It seems DT has not had any the last few times I went. Don't know if so many people found out about them and keep them bought out, or they just no longer carry them. Anybody know ?
Another item on the list - aluminum foil. Charged for it on the receipt, but it never made it home with me. Hate when that happens, but not worth the hassle to try and recover the $1 loss.
Went in for a couple of items and came home with 27 (charged for 28).
An observation: I have noticed some bloggers referring to one of our favorite haunts as Hob Lob, and just thought that was a term used around "the land of blogs". Then I got my bank statement and noticed they used Hob Lob on the debit card transaction. :D
Just another Dab of This and That.
Hope everyone is having a great week.
