Well, I'm finally over that nasty cold I had. Staying in my jammies all day Sunday and sleeping most of the time worked wonders. As many of you know, due to the Deep Freeze Western Washington endured last week, I was not able to have the surgery on my eye. Lots of people did not get to have their surgeries last week!!! I was housebound for 6 days and ready to lose my mind I have rescheduled the surgery, but cannot have it until February 21. That has me very disappointed, but I will survive.
Yesterday, a friend took me into Bellingham, the big City, and we did our grocery shopping together, stocking up for the next storm front expected later this week.
Today, I was able to make it to Lynden to my favorite Thrift Store.
This immediately caught my eye:
A 100% queen sized alpaca blanket for $40. Even in Peru, this would have cost 2-3 hundred dollars!!!
Ever since I visited Peru, I have longed for an alpaca blanket for my bed. I don't think I have ever slept as well as I did there. We shall see if it works it's wonders for me here.
Then I found this:
I love hats, and if this isn't something Queen Elizabeth wouldn't wear. I have already dyed the tips of the petals red, and plan to put some red flowers and ribbons on it. I am going to wear it to my church's Valentine Banquet. Then I will wear it for Easter, and finally to the Kentucky Derby party my kids have. After that, it will be delegated to one of the scarecrows for the summer.
I will post another picture once it is finished.
Last but not least, I had the oil changed on my car last week.
Is this the kind of reading material you get at your local repair shop? Good thing I took my knitting.
