I found a few things for myself at Tuesday Morning the night I went to my daughter’s house. I bought her the mortar and pestle, but I got something for myself and Ivy as well.
There was this sweet little table l fell in love with.
Since my income tax appointment went far better than I thought it would, I bought it for myself to put in this exact spot.
When I find cat toys that are just a couple of dollars I usually get them for her, as she so loves to play.
Charlie never played with a toy in his life. They were wasted on him. So I love that she enjoys them so much.
However I didn’t want to sit or stand and hold the end of the stick so she could play with the feathered end, so I stuck the stick part inside the sideboard drawer and it holds it for her.
What is it about feathers and cats? She has a big time squirming and jumping and grabbing at the feathers dangling down.
On Thursday I sat with my granddaughter for awhile because she was out of school sick. Then her mother took her to the doctor yesterday.
Marley had eaten a banana before they left because her mother didn’t want her to take medicine on an empty tummy.
Her mom said she got in to see the doctor and began throwing up so violently her nose was bleeding. Poor child.
I have only thrown up twice that I can recall in my life. I know that it isn’t pleasant. I hope whatever this is passes soon because it’s just miserable to be 11 years old and sick and stuck at home.
After I left Marley I stopped at the grocery store to get a few things to make taco soup. and I bought this gold garden stool while I was there.
I’d seen it the time before, thought it was so pretty but had passed it by.
However I know how much these things cost and it is a good size so I wasn’t passing it by again.
You can see it a bit better here.
As I was leaving the store with it in my cart one of the women working there said as I passed by her: “Oh, I thought I might buy that beauty for my friend.”
Well, too late now. And there was only one.
I’ve learned that when I really love something and it’s a good price and I go home without it, I usually regret it if I hurry back and it’s been grabbed up already.
A girl’s got to have a little bling, and this sure fit the bill for that.
With extra care I placed it in my car. And with equal care I carried it inside while a neighbor walking by held the door open for me.
I put it in the very place I envisioned for it at the store. Right in front of the little table with the pretty scroll cut outs.
I think my daughter is having photos of the flip house taken because it’s finally finished. I’ll show them to you when I get hold of them. She did a remarkable job on that little house.
