Friday afternoon

Friday, October 26, 2018

Today was all about running around. I made a bank run, credit union, grocery store, and wonder-of-wonders, the dollar store. I NEVER go to them, but ever since I started going to PT a few years ago, I really loved the little el-cheapo solar moving thing-a-mabobs on their desk counter top. They have a lot of them, so I have always wanted just one of my own. I am absolutely NOT a dust collector-collector.
Of all of the beautiful designer jewelry, clothing and other things I have encountered over the decades, the one thing I really want for my goofy old enjoyment is one of these plastic $2 things! I have collected objects from around the world, but gotten rid of most of them..
I bought a pink flamingo with a Santa hat and Christmas lights n it, and an R.I.P headstone with a bobbing mummy head on top.
Call me DUH, but at this age, if I want these corny $2 things, I want to have them.
I will probably never set foot in one of those stores for another ten years or at all... I love them..

At another store,I bought a Christmas gift for 2019 for Connie. A beautiful pair of sterling silver starfish earrings. We have very similar tastes in jewelry, so I bought a pair for myself! It is the first pair of silver jewelry I have ever bought, as I only wear 18K gold or higher, but they did not have them in gold. One Christmas gift down for NEXT year! I also bought some earrings for DD for her early Christmas gift. She loves them

    I totally understand our preferences....I will only wear white gold....no yellow....and John is yellow gold. I don't want sterling silver. My best friend works at our jeweler's place so she always keeps me posted! LOL

    There is no way that I could buy a holiday gift for someone 14 months in advance! I would be just aching to give it to them every day! You have the patience of a saint!

    I had an employee who had about 20 of those solar dancy things on her window sill. They made me crazy! We still have a few of them scattered around the building.

    I haven't been shopping for a long time. We junked our car and are looking at houses. Right now, I am saving every penny while hubby is gallivanting and spending more than I can save.

    I love those solar moving thing-a-mabobs too. My SIL who recently passed always brought one for all the gals at our family reunions. I miss her.

    I bought two ceramic pumpkins today. I can put lites in them. They did not come from the dollar store, but a local place here. I will use them as a center piece on the table and one on the side board.

    I just got my little Halloween doodads out the other day, almost forgot about them. I also love those things. I is a stack of three skulls that wiggle and jiggle, and the other on is a cemetery with a bat flying around. I love those little jiggly things.
