Busy Weekend

Well, I had a pretty busy weekend.Saturday I decided it was time I got some shopping done. So it was off to Walmart> Looked around for awhile and bought a few things. Checked out the telephones. Gonna have to break down and buy a new phone. Just not today.

Went out to Breakfast and came home. Took a nap for awhile and then decided to go to Hancock Fabric. They were having a sale. I can never pass up a good sale.

After going through all their pattern catalogs I selected 6 patterns I was interested in. Their ad said Simplicity patterns were 99 cents and McCall patterns were a dollar. I had 5 Simplicity and one McCalls. Went through the cashier, she rang them up and told me it was almost 20 dollars. "$$Twenty $Dollars????". The ad says they are either .99 cents or $1. Well, you have to read the fine print Mc Calls Patterns are not on sale until next Thursday. Okay I don't need the McCalls. Why would I pay $13.50 this week when I can come back next week and get it for $1.

I then went to the Dollar Store and came home. I took out my patterns and my material, looked at them and decided all that shopping had made me tired and I needed another nap. Sewing will wait til another day.

After my nap I spent some time in the RV Dreams Chat Room chatting with my friends. The chat room is always fun. This is a great group of people. There is always something to talk about.

Sunday morning I was up bright and early around idea why I couldn't sleep. Decided to tackle a little more of my mountain and do a little spring cleaning. Well I only filled two boxes and threw out a sack full of things. But the mountain is getting smaller. Next to tackle is the closets. I just don't know what will happen to Fibber McGee.

Needed a new telephone, so off I went shopping again. I have never seen so many phone choices. I need one with big numbers. A lot of them have so much information in that little bitty Caller ID screen you need to have a magnifying glass to read it. I need one that I can hold in my hand and push one button at a time. I am not a fan of those thin, ones that have all the little buttons . I am having enough trouble with my IPOD. Its like a foreign language. A phone like that would push MY buttons. Went to Best Buy, Circuit City, Staples, Shopko, and back to Wal Mart. Finally found a phone at Wal Mart. The same phone I looked at yesterday and less expensive.

Stopped by to see the grandkids for a while and deliver their valentines. They were excited because there had been a moose in their mobile home park siince Friday. Went looking for it but did not see it.

Grilled a steak outside and made shrimp scampi and baked potato for dinner. Finished with some Tillamook Mountain Huckleberry Ice Cream. That's my favorite.

Back into chat for awhile and then to bed. I don't know what I did all weekend but it is Monday and I sure am tired.
