Red purse and wooden bowls

I was able to sleep to a reasonable time, but then I had an unreasonable breakfast. Aldi has had such cheap strawberries and pineapples, so this morning we all had the last of the pineapple with (our second large bottle of) nutella, french bread with butter and a banana for Jack. I’m living it up while we’re doing all this walking at Disney!

I headed out for some errands afterward. I found a couple of new thrift stores I hit up. I bought a crossbody bag from Amazon not long ago and have been using that at Disney, but I don’t think I really like it. It just seems too slouchy to me. Fortunately (and this may have helped me decide) I found a cute red leather purse for $9 today. Sadly I realized this week that the black dot on my red leather backpack is from a pen that leaked from the inside to the outside. I’m not sure I can get the stain out. In other thrifting I finally found Max a sombrero for his church activity.

I stopped at Camping World and ordered some light switches, and stopped at WM where I finally broke down and bought a rechargeable toothbrush. I’ve figured out how to rig the extension cord so we can plug this toothbrush stand in. My last stop was the rock store to look for an empty vial for my medicine. They didn’t have what I wanted, but I did see some pretty wooden bowls. The small one was $13, and when they looked up the price of the large one it was $30. I couldn’t justify that price, especially since I bought an expensive wooden bowl from the redwood forest last year. I told her I couldn’t afford $30 for a bowl and went to pay for the small one. She came by a few minutes later and asked if I wanted it, and said she’d give it to me for $20!!! I’d been standing there thinking what I could reasonably pay for it and that was what I’d decided my top price was, yea! Then when I gave the guy my credit card he asked if we were military, and he gave me the military discount, so my total was about $31!!!! What an awesome day!

At home I sent the boys to the playground while I took the stickers off my bowls and oiled them up, and then I made dirty rice for supper. I’d bought a fruit tart from Publix so we had that for dessert. We read our Bible in my bed before the boys went to bed. I’m so glad we’re still going strong on that.
