Nice Drizzly Morning…

We have had drizzles the last few nights, not enough to amount to much, about .03 of an inch.  We need a lot more than that.  I am hoping it doesn’t come this winter in the form of ice and snow.  I hate cleaning the car off.

My daughter was kind enough to take me to a few garage sales this morning.  I have missed most of the garage sales this summer.  After we went to the garage sales we went to Bergner’s where I got a pair of slacks, a pair of shorts, a pair of sandals and 2 packages of fluorescent footies all for $29.41 for a savings of almost $83.  When I took some books to Goodwill this week I was given a whole handful of coupons to be used at Bergner’s.  The coupons worked on everything.  So much fun.  I think I will go back again before the promotion ends on October 5th as I have a lot of coupons left.

I have cleaned the bathroom and run the sweeper this week.  Tomorrow I have some laundry to do and mopping the kitchen floor and dusting.  I should have done these things today but I had more fun out at garage sales and shopping.

Tomorrow begins my 7th week of recovery.  I am keeping track of the weeks that I have been allowed to live and thanking God for the privilege. I have 3 doctor appointments this next week, the 23rd, 24th, and the 27th.  My birthday along with my twin falls in the middle of the week on the 25th.  I can’t believe how old I am getting.  Don’t ask, because I will never tell. 

Have a great weekend.  Stay safe and be happy!

Beth
