Friday: I had to work that afternoon. It was ok, I was really grumpy (I've noticed that a lot lately and I don't know how to make myself not grumpy at work, and sometimes just in life.), so I bought a pop and it didn't put me in much of a better mood, so I'm going back to not drinking pop. I went out to supper with a friend afterwards.
I had some mail when I got home.
Saturday, I totally overextended myself by going garage saleing in the morning. It was also cold, about 50 degrees when I left. I went up to a few sales north of me, and misread where some others were, and didn't realize it until I was halfway there. I stopped by one more on my way home and decided not to go to two more because of a closed street and my foot hurt. I was in my tennis shoes that I bought two years ago that gave me some horrendous blisters when I broke them in. This time I walked further but still got a pretty good blister on one of my feet. I'm very annoyed about that.
I had planned to attend the second Pridefest that afternoon, but I was exhausted after my morning excursion and after taking a shower to cool off/warm up I couldn't warm up for the rest of the day. Our heat finally kicked on later in the afternoon and that helped.
I found some mail at the end of the day.
Yellow happy mail
I put together some tags.
Monday, I had to work in the morning and tried to read another unrenewable book.
I found a wish of address labels and tea
I also made a coffee card for a swap:
3 notecards and envelopes:
Thursday, I headed to Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's and the Asian food store to pick up some things for a swap.
I can't quite get into the mood of Christmas yet, but I saw these cute angel figurines. I wasn't going to spend whatever 40% off of $17.99 is for them, but I love the look. Maybe I'll see if they're still there after Christmas.
I thought the stars and trees would work great for advent calendars. Tim Holtz was 40% off, they usually don't price it down more than 30%, so I picked up these paper dolls I've been eyeing. All the stickers were 40% off, this sticker pack was paper studio, but it was so cute and only one there (though I think they do that on purpose, you think it's the last one and you have to grab it). I'm not exactly sure why I picked up the monsters. I liked everything else, I'm sure I'll use them in swaps.
Apparently I read the sign wrong, I thought all planner stuff was 40% off, so I had two of these sticker books, turns out it was only the kits, so I used a coupon on this one. I did learn, though, that using a coupon at Hobby Lobby makes them cheaper than Target ($15) and Walmart ($13), unless they happen to be on sale. I really thought the suns and llamas were cute, they are wood. I thought it'd be cool to make a unicorn explosion box. How wicked cute are these pandas?
Here's what's in the big sticker book:
Here's a close-up of the smaller book:
I found a few things to pick up at JoAnns, but talked myself out of them because I was going to the Asian foods store. Sadly, they were closed. It was what I was really looking forward to.
Friday: woke up late and realized I can't slack off as much when I work at 1 vs working at 4.
Found a wish granted of tea:
Trick or Treat swap:
