Kate and I got around at the crack of afternoon – actually 2:00, drove to Des Moines to do some shopping. Jane got me some tangerine Fiesta ware to match what I already have. She got me some bowls and big mugs – I decided that I wanted to expand the tangerine place settings so decided to make an exchange which I did…then the clerk (of course not knowing my addiction for dishes) told me that they are discontinuing the turquoise fiesta ware….OH KNOW. Thank goodness there wasn’t much of an inventory left – but they were 50% off at Younkers so decided to go ahead and buy two dinner plates, two salad plates and two bowls. On my way home, I was feeling quite piggish so offered either the yellow or blue fiestaware to Katy…she chose the yellow. Now I feel better about my lack of control….we also discussed selling several of the cups and saucers…didn’t know whether to try ebay or Amazon. I’ve never sold anything on either – she is going to give me a lesson tomorrow. Any thoughts, anyone?
I ground my first coffee beans this morning. Jeff told me I was going to have to just experiment with quantities…was kind of fun and I will have to say the coffee tasted excellent. “He” and Kate bought me vanilla creme and eight o’clock breakfast blend beans yesterday when they went to Hyvee…for you non-iowans – Hyvee is the local grocery store chain where there is a smile in every aisle.
Kate has a friend coming over tonight to watch as many godfather movies as possible. The first season of the Sopranos obviously has her hooked on bad boys. I’ll retire to the upstairs TV – now that I have the wireless router hooked up – it doesn’t seem so bad to be up there by myself. I’m sure there will be 3 doggies up there with me and a cat strutting around keeping everyone stirred up 🙂
Until next time……
