We Have A Decision. . .
The other day I posted about the domestic dilemma of how to prepare the Thanksgiving bird this year. Hubby & I decided to cook our turkey in Granny B's harvest gold roaster oven instead of deep frying. It will be much warmer to cook the bird inside the house, not risking it being a cold windy day outside.
I did a little shopping at Dollar Tree yesterday. I was on the hunt for spray starch, found it, couldn't believe it was a brand name! Now that I'm ironing hubby's work shirts instead of sending them to the cleaners I went through the first can of starch really quickly. I saw lots of other things that I wanted to buy, but resisted, reminding myself I need to save money for Christmas gifts.
Hobby Lobby was my next stop. I really went to look for fabric, but I did look around at the 66% off fall decor & Christmas bling, didn't see anything I couldn't live without. Couldn't believe I walked out of there empty handed!!
I also went to Sam's & spent more than I wanted to, but I did only buy things we needed, once again I resisted buying unnecessary things. (I'm patting myself on the back again!! LOL)
Today I'll do more 'Thanksgiving Dinner' shopping at Aldi, Pyramid, & Reasor's. I have some coupons from the Sunday paper & Aldi has some great deals.
Since I spent a lot of time shopping yesterday not much progress was made on the quilt project. After making only 3 squares I started playing around with the layout trying to decide what looked the best, still not sure.
