The Fickle Finger of Fate

May 27th, 2014 at 02:47 pm

Well, I should never plan to get a lot of things done. Fate always interferes! I got sick on Sunday and remained sick on Monday, so I lost two days of my long weekend, plus missed all the Memorial Day festivities.

I'm feeling better today and am back at work. Tired, but functioning.

Before I got sick, I went garage-saling with my DIL and her mom on Saturday. I spent about $10 and found some interesting things. Probably my best buy was a McCoy teapot for $1 -- but once I got home I realized that the handle had been broken and glued, so it isn't quite as valuable as I thought. However, it's pretty!

I also got a Belleek vase for $5. It is perfect. I put it in my glass-doored cabinet with my white ware and I am inspired to look for more Belleek, I like it so much! For those that don't know Belleek, it is a lustrous porcelain made in Ireland, almost always white with a delicate clover pattern.

On the more practical side, I found some cookie cutters to give to a friend, some clothes for my granddaughter (including a brand-new Carter's jacket), and a very cool pewter coffee scoop.

On Monday I dragged myself to Supercuts. My hair was already overgrown and I didn't want to wait another week to get it trimmed. I actually felt pretty good while I was there, but afterwards I went home and went straight to bed. The cut was $17, including tip. I've found a wonderful hairdresser at Supercuts; she cuts my hair perfectly. I just hope she stays a while.

I tried to get my train pass for next month this morning, but there was a huge line. I'll try to get it this evening, when there is more time between trains.

I went through a bunch of papers and mail this weekend, and found a $5 bill in a letter from Nielsen. Thank goodness I looked! It was payment for a survey I had done. I wasn't expecting cash. I'd been looking for an email from them.

Well, it's a short week. Tuesday already! Hump Day tomorrow! I can do this!
