For one thing it has gotten much warmer and is going to be warm for the foreseeable future. (Although it is COLD today.) On Thursday it got up to 67*F (19*C)! And just last week we saw this:
I was inspired by Mrs. Erica's vlog to get rid of some of my plasticware. How does one person accumulate so much? I keep thinking I will use it one day but I have so much. I am almost done with this job. I will finish it tomorrow. But I will show you my counter. It was stacked about 30 inches (76cm) tall and just thrown there. I had to move everything to get to my slow cooker and it all kept falling.
I kept the good stuff and threw out all the little containers and the ones I kept from the deli counter. I kept the Chinese food ones because that's what I feed the outside cats with. And I kept some of the Wawa hot bowl plates because I freeze left overs in them and use them like TV dinners on those days we all have. I kept only the Chinese food plates, the lids for those, and the two snap lid ones I use when I make muffins on the counter. In other words, the ones I use every day. The other ones I put away in a cabinet. Neatly. It looks so much better I can't believe it. I am very happy. And it really didn't take that long to do.
This afternoon we were invited to have lunch with our pastor and his wife. We had the best meal! Everything was wonderful. And then we stayed for several hours just talking. It was so good to be able to just visit with them. Sometimes it's kind of hard to have a conversation after church with everyone wanting to talk to either them or us. We finally had to leave at 4:30 because I had to go to Rite Aid to pick up my medicine before 5:00.
Rite Aid has their Valentine's Day things out. Everything was full price, so I didn't get anything. I can't afford to buy a sign for $9.99 or a cute little decoration for $19.99. Although I was tempted by the pretty LED candles they had. When things come down to half price, I'll see what they have left. But they did have some cute things. I took a few pictures to show you.
So that's what's going on. Hope you all had a good weekend. Now we're all heading into another week. I begin the week by having a fasting blood test tomorrow morning. Wonderful! I'm getting something to eat and going to bed. See you all later.
