-2 degrees

December 6th, 2005 at 07:48 pm

no walking today it snowed again. I think if I want to continue the benefits of my walking regime I'm going to have to start using my treadmill, boring! It's hard for me to talk myself into using it, but the way it's snowing every other day that might be the only exercize I get all winter.

I drove in to work this morning and the sun was shining, a beautiful day. It started snowing around 11:00 am and it's still snowing, supposed to snow through tomorrow. Currently it's -2 and the high today was 15 degrees. I came home from work early, (around noon), because I heard they were having whiteouts up where I live. I worked a few hours after that then quit early because of a sinus headache. I usually get those with quick moving weather.

I have the heater set to 62 degrees and it's been running non-stop all afternoon.

I was watching a show on HGTV called Designed to Sell where people fix up their houses so they can sell them for more money. The concept of this amazes me, why spend all that money and hard work fixing up your house just to sell it? Why not fix it up and make it look great while you're living there? I don't get it, don't they want to live in a nice place? Why fix it up for someone else to enjoy?

Thanks to all of Flash's shopping tricks I went to the YvesRoche site and spent $9.83 on a last minute gift for my oldest niece. $4.95 of that was shipping, but I get a real pretty crystal watch and earring set as a free gift with my purchases that I'm sure she'll like, as well as 3 candles for myself and a sampler of their products which I'll give to my niece also. They had two cute candles that look and smell like pine trees. My hobby is miniature rooms and I'm hoping to use them in one of the rooms if they are the right size, if not I'll use them as decorations. I overspent on the younger niece and had to buy something small to get the amount right between the two of them.

Got another Pinecone survey to do today. Sent off for my Parker Bros rebates on the Monopoly and Twister games I bought. $5.00

I finished listening to the library book on tape Eleven On Top by Janet Evanovich. Mystery. Excellent as usual.

    I've seen Designed to Sell. I think the reason they put all that hard work into it is to pull a bigger profit from the sale of the house. Normally they have an open house and get people's reactions (always poor), fix up the house a bit over a couple of days, and then have another open house (always good reactions). I don't think they spend more than $2000 though (of course, it helps to have your own carpenter). An interesting concept.
