Missed yesterday! I had too much going on. This will be short too.
Thankful Day 18
I am thankful for our woodstove which gives off such wonderful heat! Presently I am the one getting home first to make the fires and I must say I am also thankful for my husband making it easy for me. The wood is near the door ready for me to bring it in. The kindling is all cut and ready. Throw in the newspaper. Add the kindling and the wood. Voila! Warm fire to sit and read by, blog by, eat by, veg out by!
Thankful Day 19
I am thankful for bargains! Tonight I paid nothing for a new book at Borders. First I had a coupon I printed off the web. That took 33% off. Then I mentioned to the clerk that I had received a $10 voucher on line to use. She checked it out, handed me the book and told me I owed nothing! Score! Then I went to Bath and Body which I have not been to in quite awhile. But it is holiday season and vanilla bean noel is my favorite scent. I bought 3 lotions, then got 3 shower gels free. I had spent $30 so I got $10 off with a coupon. This was combined with a coupon where I got an item free which will be a great gift. In fact I bought 2 more and used another coupon to get another free item. (It wasn't time for the coupon yet but the clerk let me use it anyway!)
Now I need to go finish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Emily has finished the second one and assures me she will bring it home for me to read at Thanksgiving. I love it that Emily is in a reading time. Neither one of my kids is the voracious reader I am but they both get into reading spells and I love it when they do!
Tomorrow I am going to walk with T. Yes, walk. It is the precursor to returning to running!
