It is getting close to the time where I need to make up my mind if I want to try and start some flower seeds inside the house to transplant them in April or whenever I feel it is safe. I probably will, I just need to go and search for the little trays. I am sure they are there, at Target or Lowes because right after Christmas, Target has bikinis and swimsuits out. It was 0 degrees here around January 1st, and you walk in the store and see bikinis. I wanted to walk in and see gloves, hats and big coats. The sad thing is that if you are in need of some swimwear, you would have to buy it now because when May rolls around and the pools open up, you will end up getting the leftovers. When our weather is really in full blown comfortable swim season...say...July....that is when you purchase Christmas items and winter boots. Go figure.
I awoke this morning at 4 am and cannot get back to sleep. I have a feeling I will pay for it later. We went to an auction on Friday night for the Sisters of The Most Precious Blood. They are some really sweet sisters. There were about 3 or 4 small quilts and knitted baby items that were on the silent auction that did okay, but the 3 larger quilts that were in the oral auction only went for $150 to $300. What a shame. The material alone costs that. The money is just not there to donate. I think most of us are struggling to just take care of our own needs and bills and the "extra" is just not there. We are still holding on pretty well, because Bob still has his job and we can still pay our bills, but we do need to find ways to cut back, big time. I am confident that we can do it though. We went to the bookstore over the weekend and did not purchase a book and got a small coffee and did not go out to eat. Just changing a few things like that will help....I hope.
Well, it is now 7:10 am, so I may try and lay back down for an hour, because I have so many things I need to get done for the day.
