Just Monday...

Monday, February 25, 2013

Went to Value Village 1/2 price day today and got myself a nice new lavender cowl neck sweater and a soft, well-fitting olive green sweater coat with the long fronts.. Took m-i-l to Wendys' and shopping and then we came to her place. I went and visited my niece and stayed for coffee and talk and also she showed me how to make those "RuffleScarves". They are very pretty, teal green, hot pink and purple variegated... But, they are just so slow and tedious to make... this will be my only one.... and if you can buy one made for $20, do the poor lady a favor and pay her at least $25... they are worth it.....

Nothing exciting. But my niece did mention that she had wanted to go to the knit-a-thon but didnt' want to go alone - which I did... but I told her she should have texted me and we could have confirmed our arrival. They know the bus schedule and were concerned that I catch my bus home... That's too bad she missed it though. I didn't know what wool to take for her. She is knitting a blanket for a 14 pregnant friend of her dd's, who will the baby just before she turns 15!!!!!! Thought I might get to see my great nephew who was born in Jan. but apparently you have to call ahead and book an appt....I never thought to suggest niece call him and see if I could have stopped by tomorrow... too late now I guess... Is it just me, or was it expected too much to at least have gotten even a texted thank you when I went him a bag of oneies and toys....and diapers...

well, gotta getto bed... talk later and I wish restful comforting sleep for everyone.../

    It was a very full dayfor me., for you too! I don't get the deal with relatives that expect you to make appointments.,.too much drama I think.

    I had a better day today than most of the week,. My part time job is getting exhausting. Guess I am trying to do too much...oh well, some of the students seem to appreciate the extra help.

    Going to bed now, talk to you tomorrow. emoticon

    It's a shame that people seem to have forgotten how to say thank you. I knitted an afghan for my great-great-nephew and don't even know if my great-niece received it.

    Your new clothes sound lovely! We don't have a Value Village here in the MA but I have been to Value City in Cincinnati a long time ago. I've been wanting to try that new ruffle scarf but haven't had time. They look so pretty! Maybe I can talk my dd into making one for me. LOL I know what you mean about the acknowledgement of gifts. I sent out Christmas gifts to great niece and nephews and got no thank you. Have a great day! emoticon

    Thanks for sharing, the scarf sounds lovely, you reminded me about Value Village, haven't been there for years, when I did go I was always able to get something nice, before my accident when I wore Naturalizer shoes, always heels, I bought 3 pairs once that were in original box, price tag on them, the shoes had never been worn, a estate sale, I sure got a huge blessing and saved a lot of money. Will be sure to check it out soon...I know what you are saying, I've often thought that myself, my daughter was always good at sending thank you notes for the gifts she received, too bad not everyone is like that, and my friend, it's not too much to ask for, it's common courtesy...Hope you have a good nights sleep... emoticon
