Day 3 Done - Time to rest

Well, I just finished Day 3 of my mini Staycation with my friend Sherrie. Monday, we visited McKay's and AC Moore. Tuesday, we went to antique stores all day. Yesterday was our final day of getting out of the house while the weather is still pretty. We made it a short day, but we both needed a few things from Walmart and Sherrie needed some Corning ware lids for some of her bowls. So we went to the local Corelle Outlet. 


Every time I go in there, I look at the new Pyrex Charms sets. I love the dotted, but I only want the red dotted one. However, you have to get the whole set and it is anywhere from $25 to $35 anywhere you find them. I'm just not going to pay that to get four bowls when I only want one of them. But I look every time to see if the set is on sale. It wasn't.


So I figured while I was in there, I might as well head back to the clearance section where I usually pick up my random plates. I walked up and there was only one shelf in clearance and it only had three items on it. But guess what one of the items was....


That's right, my red dot bowl...by itself....on sale....at clearance pricing. Check out what I paid for it!!!!


That's right. My one bowl I've been wanting for just $1.97 and wow did I snatch that baby up fast. So glad Sherrie decided she needed some lids. After we left there, we decided to treat ourselves to Steak and Shake for lunch. We both had cheeseburgers. I had french fries and she had onion rings and we split them equally so we got the best of both worlds. This is my favorite place to go when I want a good cheeseburger.


Afterward, we went back to Sherrie's and booked our hotel for our 2nd annual beach trip. Then I headed home and just vegged out and relaxed. Today is my last day off of 5 days off so I go back to work tomorrow. Not sure what my schedule will be next week, but we are going to start picking back up to normal hours after February 1st. I must say it has felt good having some time off during January. And having some beautiful 60° days to enjoy it on. It made me even more excited about thinking about our beach trip.


Now to just figure out what to do with my day today. I have kept the house clean all week. I have kept up my laundry and all the closets are cleaned out. I may get out some material and start working on making pillows. It's time I tackled how to work my sewing machine.  Have a great day!

I'm so glad you found your bowl, and on sale!! I haven't been to a Corning Outlet store in a long time. I should look it up to see where one is still open. There are lots of outlet malls down here. Always fun!! It's so nice that you had a nice little staycation and no have that beach trip to look forward to!!
