Garage Sailing Saturday

June 28th, 2008 at 09:11 pm

Only 5 weeks now till I retire Smile

My town had a community garage sail day today so spent the morning going to garage sales. Found some very good deals.

Brand new electric throw $7 ($35 new)
2 brand new pillows $3 ($20 new)
Phone Albumn for mom $2
4 jigsaw puzzles $7
2 hardback books $1.5
A box of Petite Princess dollhouse furniture $8

We also had a produce stand open in town so I went over there and got 2 organic tomatoes for $2

I've gotten several carrots from my container garden now and my tomato plant has 3 little tomatoes starting. I'm continuing to get radishes and I've started some more green onions. Next year I plan to expand my container garden. It's been a lot of fun watcing things grow.

My oldest niece got a summer job working at King Soopers $7.5/hr plus 15% off anything she buys there. That's a pretty good bonus considering how much some groceries are inflating.

I have two more weeks of very busy days at work after which it should slow down a bit. I expect to spend most of my time training others my last 3 weeks.

Finished reading the library book Living rich by spending smart : how to get more of what you really want by Gregory Karp. Finance. Very good, some very good advice in this book.

I also finished reading the library book From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris. Supernatural. Very good.

    Have you read The Lovely Bones yet? I know I felt like everybody had already finished it by the time I got around to it, but it's really good. It was one of my library reads last week... just thought I'd recommend it if you are looking for something else! Smile
