This and that

Hope everyone is doing well.  I've kept tabs on a few people whose blogs load quickly, but lost track of others.  My apologies.

Sorry, no pictures here, but if you scroll down there is a link that will take you to some.

I've been spending quite a bit of time at our "new" shop.  Someone asked about it, so here is the scoop.   Well, I finally had had enough of the business being in the house.  We found what was basically two offices one block off Main Street that we couldn't pass up:  $600 per month with everything paid except telephone and internet.  What does my husband do?  Computer repair and consulting.  What do I do?  His books, answer the phone, get in the way, wander in and out and about...

Daughter has learned the art of thrifting and cooking.  Check out the first 5 posts for what she "hauled" home today and a yummy sounding recipe.  http://carmencanusing.blogspot.com/

Yes, my friends and I still go thrifting at least once a week.  We have found the best bargains! I need to charge my camera or stay home long enough to do some scanning so that I can post some pictures of recent purchases.

Stay warm.  Stay well.  (Roxanne and Shay, get well!)

Nice to find you here. Your new business location sounds excellent. All the best with it!

So with the offices moved out of the house, will that mean more room for thrifting finds???
Glad you're posting again & will go check out link to Daughter.

Good to see you again! Sounds like you have been busy with life - and it goes on, and on, and on! I'm glad that you are more settled, maybe more time for blogging?

I love to go thrifting - wish we had some good thrift shops here!

I checked out your daughter's blog! She has some great finds, and the Spaghetti Squash sounded great, gotta try that one!

Don't stay away soooooo long!

That sounds like a GREAT situation. I totally understand about having the business in the house. A paint sprayer and several cans of paint have been living in my living room for two weeks now. The paint cans finally exited yesterday. The sprayer is in for the season, apparently.

Too bad we don't live close to one another. I know we'd have a blast going thrifting!

(I'm MUCH better, thank you.)
