Yes, this is my lovely white leg with my ankle tattoo. Don’t judge me. I quite like it (the tattoo not the whiteness of my leg). If it disappeared tomorrow, I’d go get another one. So there.
BUT…the reason I’m showing you this picture is the lovely brand-new Nurture brand shoes I got for $2 at the thrift store! ! ! TWO DOLLARS ! Look online. These are not cheap shoes. And they fit my foot and arches like a glove – a really soft and supportive glove. MAJOR SCORE ! They looked brand-new with no scuffs or marks at all on the bottom and no wear marks on the inside either. I did spray them with Lysol before putting them on at home. (It works at the bowling alley, right?) I just love them and may not take them off for days. And did you notice they are PINK SUEDE? Hee-hee. I also got a chair pad for The Captain’s computer chair for $1.99 and a magazine for .25, but that’s boring.
We’ve been looking for chili in microwaveable cups, but we haven’t been able to find any. The Captain likes to take them to work. They used to have several brands, but nobody is carrying them anymore...Nobody but the Dollar Store, apparently. And I got me four cans of Spaghetti-Os and a box of Moon Pies too. I always get Moon Pies at the Dollar Store when I go.
And the other day, Kris mentioned the fact that she lurves Peach Rings and buys them every time she goes to Wal-Mart. Kate commented that she lurved them too. Huh? Peach Rings? What are these things you speak of? So I looked for some at the Dollar Store, and sure enough…
And I merrily ate half the bag on my way home.

Break your eggs into the cups, screw on the lids, boil like regular eggs, and twist them out. Perfect eggs for deviling every time. No more shitty shells!! Although I bought these at the Dollar Store, this package of six was $10. Totally worth it if you ask me. I’m going back for another box because I got a $5 coupon for the Dollar Store that’s good next Saturday.
A really neat cookie tin with a clear lid so you can see what’s inside ($4.99). They only had one or I would have bought more. Apparently other people liked them too.
A wire pumpkin with rhinestones. I bought one of these last year and hung it above the fireplace. It’s really pretty and sparkly in the lamplight or firelight at night. I got this one to go on the other side so now I have a pair. I love this. It’s so much prettier than this picture, I promise. I’ll get a picture of it at night and you’ll see. I posted a picture last year too. $8.50
This is four boxes of polymer clay with which I am going to make some crochet hook handles. The purple thing in front is a rolling pin for the clay. Then I bought two icing decorator tips for making shapes from the clay to make pretty designs. We’ll see if it works. I have no idea if it will or not since I’ve never done it before. I also bought some little rhinestones to put in the handles, but I either didn’t make it out of the store with them or they fell out of my bag on the way home and are in the car still.
I also added to my Yarn Bee Snowflake yarn collection because they still had them for $2.99 on clearance. I fear that means they are no longer going to sell the colors that were on clearance. They still had other colors, and a couple of new ones, in its regular spot on the shelves for the regular price of $4.99. The orange is what I was interested in, so I got four more skeins. I had to pry myself away from the yarn aisles. I wanted to buy so many more things, but I already have a butt-load I need to use. Sigh.
That’s my day. It’s pizza for dinner tonight. No cooking going on here.
