I went to Costco yesterday to pick up Diva’s glasses. After a comedy of errors where they made her new glasses in her old prescription they were finally ready. She is a happy camper. It was “torture” for her, having to wait so long.
While at Costco I figured I would pick up a few things. Well a few things turned into plenty. But for all my picking up of food the ability to greatly increase the number of vegetables in my house still eluded me.
I usually buy a big bag of fresh broccoli from Costco. Today the produce section looked picked over. In Costco!?! I seem to have developed a knack for hitting the grocery store when the items I want are all gone.
I have visions of spinach and broccoli but none to be found. I did substitute in Brussels sprouts and celery, but still not as exciting.
On the other hand I have stocked up on various kinds of meat, so we should be good for a while.
I picked up some wraps and chicken flings (boneless chicken wings) to make quesadillas. I think that will be tonight’s dinner. Last night was Costco rotisserie chicken with spring rolls and Brussels sprouts.
Speaking of tonight, I am debating going to my boss’ house to make Valentine’s Day cards. She is a Stampin Up demonstrator and has been trying to get me into this craft for a short while now. The cost to do it is $15 to make 4 cards.
Considering my many pending yarn projects I think I will pass on this new hobby but I still want to go to a workshop or two. I am on the fence about going to this workshop. Partly because once I am home I don’t want to go out again and also because I am over-budget this month. I was good until the trip to Costco.
At my boss’ insistence, I made my first card earlier this month. It was fun but a bit overwhelming. So many possibilities, how do I choose just one?? In the end I left it to “settle” for a couple of days then pulled out the glue. This is roughly what it looks like. For whatever reason it didn’t occur to me to take a picture after I committed. And looking at the picture now I think it might have been wiser to put the white card not on a white table. Next time,
