So, it's Friday. It's hot. I don't have the first clue where this week has gone really.
I am absolutely DYING to have my sewing machine repaired. It's been weeks now. I have things I want to make, things that need to be repaired. I need to sew.
Jack and I went to a garage sale on Wednesday where I picked up a big handful of old Halloween decorations.
Aren't they cute? I am a crazy person. I am already wishing for Halloween! Pumpkins and fall leaves and apple cider and pumpkin patches. Man do I love Halloween.
These are the oldest ones, and have been ever so carefully refolded since I brought them home to bring their honeycomb back to life.
I saw a Frugal Friday feature on Twiddletails last week, and I love that idea. I think I will try and do that for awhile.
My frugal tip for the day today is: make your own microwave popcorn. It's fast, it's cheap and it's free of all those fake buttery chemicals in the other stuff. Just buy regular popcorn kernels, put about an 1/8 of a cup of them into a brown lunch bag, fold over the top a few times and pop for about 2 minutes in the microwave. Yummmy, fresh popcorn with no weird stuff.
A bag of kernels used to cost me less than a dollar and it lasts forever. That probably means it's around $3 right now. LOL Still cheaper than prepacked microwave corn though!
We are still loosing those levees left and right around here. This is the latest, brought down by a muskrat. :-( There used to be a sign on the highway right by our house that said, "There are only 2 kinds of levees - those that have failed and those that will."
I was reading part of a book on line last week that said our county has the highest frequency of floods and flood related damage in the entire United States. Crazy.
I will be back with that cookie recipe this weekend.
Happy Friday to all!
