This and That

December 3rd, 2018 at 01:10 pm

I've done two mystery shops since my last post -- one at a restaurant and one at a car dealer.

I went to see "The Favourite" yesterday ($7 for early-bird show) and I'm not sure what to say about it. I think I will say it was both amazing and outrageous. Not quite what I expected, but I'm glad I saw it. I think. Hmmm.

I did a load of laundry yesterday but ran out of quarters, so I ended up hanging everything in my bathroom and on the radiators. They dried pretty well, but they were stiff and kind of wrinkly. Makes me appreciate what a dryer does! I meant to get more quarters today, but I forgot -- darn it! Well, I'll have to go out again and get some, because I spilled coffee on my coat and pants, and they really should be washed soon.

I got some gas this morning, which was only $19. Love these prices! I haven't seen gas for $2.22 a gallon in years.

I stopped in at Goodwill yesterday, since I was in the area, and I bought a Haviland-Limoges plate for $5. It is from one of their series based on medieval tapestries. I wasn't sure if I should get it, but a quick look at eBay showed they were priced in the $20-50 range. Of course, I don't know if they are selling, but I love the plate and would be happy to keep it. It's part of their "Lady and the Unicorn" series, and it has a red background, so it almost looks like a Christmas plate.

Haven't progressed much on Christmas prep, but now that I have no more mystery shopping on my plate, I should have some more time.
