Hi Everyone!


It's mostly cloudy with sprinkles today. I'm hoping they water the few spring "potential" flowers in the gardens. 


Today has to be errand day for me. I never got there yesterday and I don't want to miss the sales. Hopefully, this will be a week where I can grocery shop twice and stock up on the double sales. Fingers crossed.


I was searching my wish list the other day for a pair of earrings and the price was reducted by 50%. There was a notation that said "this item was not available to refund or return". Hummmm? The same message came up with a Vera Bradley duffle bag-new item. I've only seen that on the while supplies last/ final clearance items previously. Odd??


Twinny--You are so much further ahead on your spring cleaning. I haven't even made my plan yet. I'm usual. It is so nice when it's all done. 


LindaLatte--I swear by the steam mop for the kitchen and bathroom floors. I did purchase a special grout cleaner with a mop for the kitchen floor tile. It did a nice job but I was really huffing & puffing by the time I finished. I have to find a grout cleaner that has a silicone seal to it so once it's done you don't have to repeat the process. 


Birdmama---I thought of you when the squirrels were running around this morning on the front porch. The suet cake feeder has been busy. I have the bunny & egg wreath on the door and more eggs are missing from it. The birds keep taking them. It's looking pretty sad so I'll have to retire it after this holiday. 


I watched part of Shoe Shopping/Jane last night. I was tempted but I didn't order anything.....yet. The only thing I need  is to replace a pair of sneakers. I prefer leather but not the current price. I'm not sure about all the knitted versions. I'm hoping for a TSV in the future months.


Have a good afternoon/evening.

Good Afternoon and thanks for getting us started, Fressa.  Hope you accomplished your errands.  


There are some items that are available for "blowout" sale prices here.  I think they did this once before.  The prices are great, but you are not able to get a refund if the item doesn't work out.  That makes me very nervous about ordering, especially if I haven't tried the item before. 


There is a SG dress available that I have, and the price is wonderful.  But, I am not sure if I will order since I haven't worn a dress all year due to COVID and certainly don't need new clothes.   Decisions, decisions.


I had an OLLI geography Zoom class this morning, and it was very good.  I'm also taking an on-line vegan cooking course (not OLLI and cost $20).  It is very interesting so far.  The chef is going over things like what types of pans to use, and spent a while demonstrating how to use knives.  That was something I thought I knew, but realized I did not.


It is cloudy and chilly here (high in the upper 50's predicted), and we are having sprinkles off and on.  I may skip my outdoor walk today and just do a DVD.


Waves to all of our posters and readers.  Hope everyone has a nice evening and sleeps well.
