100th post...and I spent the egg money!!
A nice, organisational and congratulatory moment here. As some regular readers will know, I save my egg money and I had let slip a few months ago that it had amassed the grand total of $299! Well, with recent chook sales I finally reached the milestone that allowed me to buy the side table I wanted in order to get my bedroom on track and here it is! (complete with one drawer out I just notice!) I haven't quite filled all the drawers yet but by the stuff that still needs a home on the floor it will not take long! (better a hoarder than a borrower be! Isn't that how it goes?)
DH still thinks I am crazy that I didn't just go out and buy it 18 months ago when I wanted it, but then I wouldn't love it like this and be quite proud of it, it would just be furniture.
Tidied up the "book floor" as well after this came, borrowed some of the wooden shelving cubes and solved the problem of keeping all the stuff I like nice and close. See the magazines next to the pen and little sticky notes so I can mark the good quilt articles so they are easy to find for later. I have not yet come to the point where I rip and file the good bits but with my growing mag. collection I may get to that. I also love the chook. He plays the chicken dance until you put your hands around his neck then he makes a choking sound. Depends on your idea of humour... my daughter's class gave it to me for my birthday for doing storytime!
Now, back to being my 100th post. What fun that has been. My posting started at about the same time as my daughter got sick with her giardia and associated tummy problems and the blofgging interaction has been lovely for some added contact and to keep me motivated to record my quilting. As a result, and as a Thank you, I am going to borrow from Darlene's idea and everyone who comments prior to my next post will go into the draw for a prize or two......
Have a great day, Tracey
