Gentle Friends today is my Friday, I took off Thursday and Friday so coupled with next Monday it will be a loooong weekend.... and the big plans so far are to shampoo the carpets!!! WooHoo, life in the fast lane, watch out!! I am though, very excited an feel that since it's Wednesday that I am the.....
I did want to show you a Thrifty Thursday snaperoo - since we did run around to a few Thrift/Consignments Shops and a couple of Estate Sales last Saturday and I found a few things....
I picked up the small 9" spring form pan (it looks brand new) to have another choice to bake with. The two books, first the John Steinbeck, published by Collier, is from a set of JS books they put out in the mid 30's, I have a couple of other sets of Collier books by different authors and thought this would be a nice set of books to look for, and the "Ladies of Liberty:The Women who Shaped Our Nation" by Cokie Roberts, was only a $1 and since I have been watching the reruns of CSPAN's "First Ladies:Influence and Image" I am just fascinated by the conversations about the First ladies and am finding out just how much I didn't know and how influential these women behind the men were. They Second Season starts up on September 9th and begins with Edith Roosevelt. You can click to the CSPAN site and watch any of the programs that have aired so far.
Since I will not be here on Friday I think I'll post a snap of last Sunday afternoon........
.... the Smokie after playing grab-ass with the other Who-hounds, as you can see he has one of the 100's of toys the who-hounds drag all over the house. This is one of 4 raccoon "Skinnnez" in the basket. We have all of them and double and more of each. We get the smaller size and the squeak (when new) can drive you crazy - the squeaker bit usually is the first thing to go, but they love them even when they stop squeaking.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks again for stopping by,
do stop again and have a wonderful labour day Weekend!!!!
