Back again to play along with Sian's Memorandum Monday! I missed last week because, well, LIFE. You know, it has been totally kicking my butt lately.
Valentine's weekend we had temps in the single digits (think -15 for you Celsius folks). It triggered a fibro flare that left me tired and just plain miserable. I even missed creating & posting a LOAD layout for Valentine's Day. I was too tired to go out for dinner. Yuck. Honestly, I was ready to throw in the towel and call LOAD done for the month. But I spent Monday creating two layouts and got myself caught up.
Work has been stressful too, with a copyright infringement issue that I just can't seem to get resolved. So there's that. And all the tracking and careful eating and keeping up with things that I do all week just seems to fall apart on the weekends.
This past weekend was a bit milder (thank you!!!). Jay and I made it out to several thrift shops and an indoor flea market and had some interesting finds. And I learned that just because someone tells you something belonged to their grandmother doesn't mean it is old! We bought a totally kitschy "Betty Boop Diner" indoor/outdoor thermometer, which, upon research, is being sold today! Ah well, it still looks good at the shop, so live and learn! I actually learn new things about old stuff nearly every weekend as we purchase and research things for the shop. When I have something truly interesting, and can remember to save the links, I'll share!
