It was 35 bucks from The Chamber of Commerce. It gave you this ton of checks in different denominations like 15 bucks towards your bill at ________ or 10 towards your purchase at ________. And a lot of the places are place we go. Or places we've been meaning to go. And they're not coupons. They're checks. No strings attached.
Well, we have already received our full value out of it and we've only used two checks.(I promised my Dad he could have the 10 dollars at Brown Cow Ice Cream for his birthday.) The first one was for Two Fish Art Glass and we three went together and had the most excellent time shopping and looking and talking. We really did. It's a cool store. We found these rugs. Hang on a second. Shish found 'em. You recall her shopping advice, don't you? "You have to dig."
For twenty dollars, this is the coolest thing because it's got tons of color AND made of recycled materials AND if it gets dirty you can just hose it off AND you can use it at the beach or the park. I plopped it in the living room after I finally got the floor swept properly.
Then last night, MK and Bob and I went to Trattoria 224 on Harrison and we had the most tremendous dinner. Two fancy salads and two brick oven pizzas and we each paid about 7 bucks each for tax and tip. We laughed because MK and I are all about the value and Bob was all thinking it was an opportunity to have new experiences. ha. Poor Bob. He's so way over his head when he sits between us.
It took me extra time to get the rug unrolled because I had to get my muffler fixed and no, it wasn't my muffler. It was the pipe that ran between the catalytic converter and the muffler and I didn't break it, it had rusted out. That cheered me up for some reason. And I have been busy.
This blog is going to go into semi-retirement. If there's something irresistible comes up, I'll be sure to put it up here and if I can direct you toward my writing someplace else, I'll be sure to post that up here too. I wanted to see if I could go for 365 days and if you count the weak ones, I passed that goal a long time ago and I'm on to some new ones.
MK was not 100% loving her rug selection. Hey look they're plastic, they are not for everyone but when I looked up from watching teevee and saw this?
