No spend, ate scalloped potatoes and salad for dinner. Will repeat tonight. Have no cooking goals in head yet for the week. I do have a head of cabbage that needs to be used, maybe a stir fry of some kind? We will see.
Sissie and I turn 57 years young today. I am fat and she is skinny. I am younger....... by seven minutes so I always win. We will see each other in less than a month and I am so excited. Have no Birthday plans. Eldest daughter sent me some cake decorating things and I think a cake turn table is on it's way. I love to bake cakes just have a hard time not eating them. Decorating them is fun and creative.
Hub's asked me what I wanted, and I thought a new garden bench for the front yard, but then I remembered we are adding nothing this year that has to be moved. I am actually proud that so far this year and it is almost 1/3 over, I have only added socks, and one sweater. The socks I needed the sweater I didn't. I have been really good. I don't see where it has saved me any money however.
The shop was busy yesterday and I took in two bride dresses, I have a third coming in today. I sewed pretty hard yesterday. I was also able to get a list of bothersome to do tasks done for the studio, and really got a major bit of choreography done with the company. I also was able to get all the laundry done. but still have one basket to put away and then I ironed a big stack of pillow cases and napkins, table cloth or two.
I had two things happen yesterday that I thought of as blessings (actually our whole lives are blessings) but as I was working on the pillow cases I noticed that my mangler was not as hot as I thought is should be. Now it started out strong and then seemed to peter out. It was plugged in and turned on, then I was interrupted by a wedding dress so I turned it off. When I turned it on again nothing. No heat. Crap! This is a very expensive piece of equipment and it is 25 years old, I am not going to replace it any time soon. So I started to pull it apart and the electrical attachment that went into the machine was loose. I tightened a few screws and it worked! SO HAPPY!
I went to Wal-Mart last night (Aggravating) we needed honey and I needed CD's for the studio. You can buy honey there in big containers cheaper than anywhere else. I don't like to use my Bee's honey for bread baking or cooking. I put these item in the back of the car and I could hear them rolling around as I drove home. No big deal. After I gathered the groceries I noticed the lid was off the honey and it was turned over on its side. Has anyone ever spilled honey? Panic ensued and I unwrapped the sack expecting a big mess and the little seal on the cap in side had held NO MESS! Whew! missed the big one that time.
Small silly blessing but I will count them anyway.
No story today, I have to go research a plane ticket.
Have a great and productive day!
