I spent an hour this morning “shopping”. When I moved here, I got involved with a crafting club, and our teacher, Karen, became more than a teacher; she became a friend. We would meet at her house once a month, down in the basement, and she would teach us various techniques, and we would work on projects. It was so much fun, and just relaxing.
Well, she died. And her husband just let the basement sit. But finally he decided that it was time to get rid of all her craft stuff. So he invited a couple of close friends who had been in the craft club to come and organize a sale. He just could not deal with doing it himself. The ladies invited each of Karen’s craft club members to come to the sale. Very odd to once again walk down into her basement and see the friends that used to gather there with Karen. We could fill a sack with anything laid out for sale and the cost would be $10 a bag. They were large bags, and I filled four of them. I know how much crafting materials and tools cost, and I estimate that I had well over $1000 worth of tools, inks, stamps, punches, paper goods, glue, etc. When I got everything out to my car, I just let a few tears come down. I missed her so much…
Went to visit Mom next, and she was doing well. She was smiling and talking!
Then went to Aldi’s. Our store had closed to remodel and now is open again. They sent out coupons for $5 off a $30 dollar order. I have 3 coupons to use. Today I spent $30.92!!! So the coupon was good!!!
Ready to clean house now, and also get a vacation booked.
