2. Josh and I did some serious spring cleaning this week. Well, we didn't actually set out to do it......it just kinda snowballed (or should I say, dustballed) into happening. See, we finally bought some new ceiling fans. Our old ones worked OK, but they didn't have a light, so only having one lamp in the living area....let's just say "we live in the dark" for the most part. It's OK with me, keeps our electric bill down and I love the look of candles instead. But it started to become a safety issue when company would come over at night and I needed to walk them over to the couch.
So our tax return came in.....and of course it would surely burn a hole in our pocket if we didn't start spending it. KIDDING! We do treat ourselves to a little home improvement each year with our federal check.....usually it isn't a treat, an appliance or something major lets go, just around the time the refund gets deposited. God is good like that. He keeps our accounting in check and always provides. (BTW, I am not kidding you....our microwave kicked the dust that evening)
So getting to the fans.......when Josh took them down, there was a dead squirrel on top of each of the blades. At least that is what it looked like. In my defense.......we have super high ceilings, I am afraid of heights.....and we don't own a tall ladder (we borrowed this one from my dad). So yeah, there was some dust up there.
After we saw
3. Total GoodWill score yesterday.
So H accidentally broke my crock pot lid.....and I'd like to mention that one oval tempered glass cover will explode into 1,564,762 pieces when it hits your tile floor.....in case you are wondering. Another little tidbit of information is that they do remain in perfect little cubes that resemble diamonds, according to N, who wanted to keep them in her jewelry box.
So being my frugal self.....I
anyway.....I ventured off to GoodWill in search of this lid....no dice. But.....I did score a two piece Hanna Andersson coat with matching snowsuit/overalls for N! Sized perfect for next year.
So, I did my GoodWill routine inspection.

and one last other thing....... I am a little miffed at the LOST writers. Not only was I devastated that it wasn't on last night..... don't they know I base a good portion of my grocery list on my Wednesday night snack spread?!
OK.....so that is a wrap. Please leave the link to your blog here (or feel free to leave a comment).....you surely must have three things to be thankful for, brag about, make me laugh!
