Busy Day


Brooke never took these socks with her so I wore them the other day and they felt SO wonderful.  I used to wear toe socks all the time in the winter but haven’t worn in any years.  I don’t know why.  I love them. I think I’ll ask Santa for some in my stocking. :)

Remember how I was telling you the other day that I was disgusted with the human race as a whole? Here’s yet another absolutely disgusting reason why: Japanese fleet heads off to hunt for humpbacks. :( Of course, I guess I could be labeled a hypocrite: I eat beef, chicken, & pork. But they aren’t just killing the whales for meat. They’re killing them for research, and killing a lot of them, too. :( I hate hearing about stuff like this, it makes me so very sad.

Cain is out of school this week for the Thanksgiving holiday so he and I are going to work really hard in the yard tomorrow. I can’t wait either. My yard is horrible. We usually keep it nice and neat but we’ve been so busy this past month that we’ve let it go.  The leaves are taking over so I’ll tackle them while Cain rides the lawn mower and takes care of the backyard.

Soooo, today I went and got groceries for Thanksgiving dinner. I shopped at Wal-Mart. I bought three small things that weren’t food items.  Want to know how much I spent? Have a look-see:


ONE HUNDRED FIFTY SEVEN DOLLARS AND FORTY SIX CENTS FOR FOOD! I almost passed out when she gave me my total. Yes, I know it’s Thanksgiving and yes I know you buy more, but I probably don’t buy that many groceries in a whole month! My turkey was $23.25 (for a 21 lb. Butterball turkey). I spent $16.29 on a ham. 18 eggs cost me $2.72.  It’s just nutty, I tell you.  Of course, I have enough to feed an army….  :)  And Brooke—Brooke could eat the whole turkey by herself so none of it will be wasted, that’s for sure.

Today I worked in my kitchen for the majority of the day (after I got home from running all my errands).  My counters and became a catch-all for just about everything.  I cleaned everything off of them and moved my microwave to another location.  I like it better already. :) I’m still not finished but I’ll tackle it in the morning and get it done.

  1. Hey Rachel!
    I would happily make an apron for you!!!
    What is your favorite type of fabric… you can see a lot on my explosion of fabric post, but if you want better pictures I can get some more…
    I have all types, snowmen, santas, gingerbread men, angels, trees… you name it, I might have it.
