It does not matter how much money I have or don’t have, one thing is true. I get almost giddy when I get something I need on an incredible sale. Yesterday, I hit a jackpot of sorts. I got myself 4 pair of Jones New York velour cozy yoga pants (I walk and workout in them), that were originally $59 for $4 and change. If that was not a great enough deal, I then picked up Levi jeans for Ethan at $6.81 a pair. I could not believe it but I love it!!! Got a few more bargains but those were my biggest.
It was a glorious and warm day here and I took a great walk outside with the puppies. It felt wonderful and you can definitely smell spring in the air. All the snow is melting so rapidly. I know it is supposed to be cooler the next few days but there is no denying spring is coming. Yesterday, when I was shopping the bathing suits, gardening supplies, swim toys and Easter candy were a very welcome sight.
Remember, a few weeks back I told you all I was stressing over Ethan’s birthday cake and that it was going to be a construction scene. Yesterday, I got the trucks for that and then in another store I found the perfect things for a John Deere tractor cake. I bought those too because with two little boys they are not going to go to waste for sure. I plan to ask him what he would rather have, and then start my mental planning.
It is a time of planning isn’t it? Springtime, and the anticipation of rebirth and renewal. I am mentally preparing my garden and I decided I am going to ask my husband to build me another large raised bed. I already have 2 but I want to add a third. I cannot wait to get my hands into the soil and to start planting. Are you all planning a garden? I love being able to grow healthy food that I know was not sprayed with pesticides. I also love showing my kids how things grow. I would love to add some free-ranging chickens for eggs and for fun, but with our pack of dogs, it just does not mix. Heck, I have even wanted a goat or two and a miniature donkey. That does not sit so well with my husband, who knows he is the one who takes care of all the animals. I try to sell him on the healthy benefits of our own goat milk and making our own goat cheese, but he just points to a farm down the road where we can pick that up. So no chickens, goats or donkeys but I will have my garden.
Don’t forget the cookie stamp give-away is over in a few hours. I have so many great give-aways coming up. Great things like $25.00 gift certificates and gift cards to various establishments like Dali Decals, environmentally friendly products, toys and so much more.
