Guess who is at a college game today? The daughter and hubby.
Husband wanted a college jacket but they're quite expensive and it didn't fit in the budget.
While we were out on our weekly market trip we made a stop at the Goodwill store. You never know what you're going to find there and I'm all for a good bargain.
Fifteen minutes later husband arrived and told me to close my eyes. I closed them in anticipation (I should've known better.....lol)while he opened the bag. When I opened them he was standing there like a kid in a candy store holding this jacket. It was BRAND NEW with the tags and had never been worn. There wasn't a thing wrong with it and it was in his size. The bargain price was $10!
I sent the picture to the DD in college and told her the story of the jacket find. She reminded me that I should've known the bag content wasn't for me. After all, it wasn't a swiffer or a new sweeper! LOL
Trust me, there's a story behind that one. My silly day (as in birth-day) is fast approaching (eyeroll). I don't like a big fuss but just once I wish my kids and hubby would get together and plan a simple meal out as a family (sigh). But I'll hold out for another swiffer or some such thing. lol
Can you believe it? I finally finished something. These were lost. I remembered them the other day while I was watching a documentary on monkeys. Somehow in my wee brain, I got to thinking of monkeys and their dexterity and that lead to knitting which led to the Monkey socks. Don't ask! it's how my brain operates......lol
I couldn't find these anywhere. I knew they were almost finished. Three hours later, I found them! I quickly finished them while admonishing myself for procrastination. I love 'em but my next pair will be no purl monkeys.
