Life here has been so different. At the farm I was used to doing what needed to be done at the moment and not really having regular work hours. My what a difference a job makes with regular set hours. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving childcare but I do miss going to town on random days during the week. Before I’d go to town whenever and then just work that night instead. Now it’s work from 7 am to 6 pm and then fit my stuff and the family stuff in and around that. It turns out that Saturdays are becoming grocery day. I hate that because then I end up blowing a Saturday….
Yesterday was that kind of day. Errands and groceries. Yuck. I even went all out and bought myself an outfit in an actual store. I know that for many of you that’s not a big deal but for me, clothes brand new from an actual store is a rare occurrence.
I did hit up the local thrift stores too. I came home with stash fabric. I can’t say no to it!!
The store had a tote of fabric some was together-some was loose. Some was dirt cheap. Some wasn’t. I picked up the little bundle to the left it was marked at 25 cents. I immeditely knew I’d snap that up. Then I looked more and other bundles of what looked like were strips from sheets were priced at $4. I was so confused. Obviously whoever priced it didn’t know a thing about fabric. In one basket was a whole bunch of loose fabric. I started sorting through what I thought looked like I would use. I had a little pile there. When I went up to the counter I asked the clerk about the pricing. She said that the loose stuff looked like about twice as much as the 25 cent bundle so she asked if 50 cents was an okay price.
So my fabric stash here was 75 cents. That made me smile for the day.
When I got home I told Hubby that I hate that Saturdays have to be shopping days. I don’t get time to do more projects at the house if that continues. He suggest taking care of the grocery shopping one night during the week so I’d have Saturdays free to work on things here….great idea. Hopefully that’s the plan for next week.
Stop by this evening. We’ll have a recap of the blog hop and give you one final chance to win a copy of our book.
