Lately I feel that there isn't enough time in the day. With the school events, hockey events, work, the kids after school activities and home. I want to do so much. But, when I get home, I just want to crash. But while having those days. I think of what I want to be doing. Like maybe some sewing. Putting new wallpaper up. Maybe painting the kitchen. Do you know the days I'm talking about? Just no time to yourself kind of days. Well after one of those days, really a couple of those days. I felt like hell. No life in me. Then, the doorbell rang and there was a swap package from Annie. A nice happy surprise for me! Usually, when the doorbell rings, it's for someone else. Not this time. I opened the box with ds. What a wonderful package it was.
Annie, I love everything. Thank you.
It made my day.
It also inspired me to plan my days more and to make time for the things I want to do.
Have a good day!

Thrifty finds

The colors are fading away. After two days of rain and high winds. There are hardly any leaves left on the trees. Which means, need to go and rake. Something I dont want to think about.
Yesterday I had a chance to stop at the thrift stores. My first stop. With baskets to put my cookies in this year. Old ornaments, cards, ribbons and bows. The snowman playing the piano, cute! Ceramic snowmen to plates. $5.00 well spent. Everything was in great shape. Left with a smile on my face.
Thinking, there is another shop on the way home. Should I stop. Yes! When I walked into the store. There it was. On top of a cabinet all lite up. Went right to it. Mine! All for $4.50. Left with another smile on my face. I love the holidays!
Have a great day!
