Sunday: I went through a lot of movies and some books. I had a big bag of stuff to return to the library on Monday. I made it through a whole week without drinking pop, it's a big achievement for me, but I've done this before and then I drink a pop and I go to drinking pop everyday and that's where it goes downhill for me. I'm trying really hard this time, I'm just hating being hungry (or maybe thirsty) all the time.
Monday: Finished a book, got some happy mail.
This and that swap:
Tuesday: not much, just getting stuff ready to mail on Wednesday. Had some interesting weather, pouring and hail
I got some happy mail.Surprise tag:
50 loose stickers:
Thursday, I went to a Humane Society sale in a neighboring town with a friend:
Friday: I was going to go to a few sales in the morning but talked myself out of it. After work I had to pick up some chai tea and saw this cute wallhanging:
Five pieces of purple happy mail:
Saturday: A friend and I went to a neighboring town's citywide garage sales. Saw this beautiful teapot while we were out:
I feel I've said this before, but these sales are more and more sad every year. There were a lot fewer this year than previous years and I think I won't worry about going next year. It seems like there is a ton of things going on this weekend each year, I read about 4 different citywide sales, this one included, we have our first Farmer's Market, also the university has graduation today. So, I'll probably just do garage sales here next year.
My friend and I stopped at Dairy Queen for lunch and I picked up these cute little squishy things:
I also talked her in to stopping at Hobby Lobby to check out their Paper Studio sale:
I just liked the ice cream and unicorn paper. My aunt suggested I sell my explosion boxes at a store, in order to do that, I'll need to make a few more, this paper pad has nice springy colors as well as a slight sparkly sheen, it was one of the few cardstock patterned paper they had. I've decided I like making them more for seasons than for birthdays, so I might do more of that. I couldn't pass up the cats with glasses and I will need some cactus stuff at one point. I thought the fabric banner set would be good for a swap. I've been eyeing the popsicle tags for awhile, so I finally bought them. I like the flower, figured I could use it in a swap. The washi has bicycles and flowers, I'm really into those right now. I love the llama charms and I've wanted the bags.
We also stopped at JoAnns because it's in the same strip mall. I saw these cute teapot pieces:
When I got home, I found some happy mail.
and a surprise:
It was a fun day to shop with a friend. I don't think Hobby Lobby is going to have the tape I want so I will be returning to Walmart and picking up a pack everytime I go. I need to sit down and make a bunch of those boxes now. I have sold a few to friends and it would be fun to sell to people outside of my network.
I feel like I need a nap now though.
I did break my no pop thing for lunch and sadly the pop was not as good as I expected it to be after not having any. Usually what happens is I don't drink any for awhile and then I drink one and then I just keep buying them and drinking them, but if I don't buy them, I'll be fine. I think I'll be fine, an occasional one doesn't seem to bad and I wasn't planning to never drink pop again.
