{ Goodwill, Dollar Tree, Walmart and Bed, Bath and Beyond }

And so went my Saturday.

If I had read this title elsewhere I would have been majorly jealous thinking that the author of the pst was one lucky woman.  Some of my favorite places all in one day.  And while it did happen, it wasn't exactly for me, I guess I was just the ride along this time hahaha

Only place I really needed to run by was Walmart and the post office, and unfortunately the post office didn't happen.

Curt, Jasmine and I were out doing some errands, mainly all for Jasmine really.

Started this morning with some laundry and house cleaning.

But before I continue, I have to say that I could use some prayers for my health.  For the past week I've been feeling slightly lightheaded.  I think it's sinus related because I'm congested (I also have terrible allergies which have gotten worse since moving to Texas), and it hurts my cheekbones if I touch them.  But for the past week I've had this lightheaded, woozy kinda feeling going on, almost feels like a head cold kinda thing.  It's so frustrating.  I can handle headaches, a cold, allergies or whatever, but feeling that disconnected kinda feeling is very frustrating.

Anyway, I'm hitting this with Sudafed and hoping it clears up, if not, then I'll be headed to the doctor next week to see what I can do.


But back to my day, got dishes, laundry and some house cleaning done, then basically sat down and watched the first episode of the new Orange is the New Black Season on Netflix, while I waited for Curt and Jasmine to get ready.  Also worked on Jasmine's new Cosplay, I'm trying to make the gun and it's proving to be quite a pain in the behind.  But I can't wait to show you all the finished costume put together, it's adorable :)


I also got a bucket going with hot water and Oxyclean for my crochet pieces.   I'll let them sit overnight and then throw them in the washer tomorrow.


Let Marley out to use the potty,


and almost walked smack into this spider....AGAIN!!!!

He was there the other day and I thought he had disappeared, but nope, I stood out in the back patio watching Marley and this creeper literally came creeping down on it's web and stopped and dangled right by my face.  Like, what the heck???


I don't know what kind of spider it is, I really don't want to know, all I care is that it stays far far away from me.



Fed and change the water for Jasmine's birds.  Aren't they adorable?

And then finally we got on the road.

So our first stop was actually at Luigi's for lunch, hubby wanted to take us girls there.  It's a great Italian restaurant right here in town, it's pretty inexpensive, and serves delicious authentic Italian.  We usually go for the lunch special which is just $6.

Today we all picked the Pasta Sampler which is Lasagna, Spinach Ravioli and Cheese Manicotti.  So good.

After that we headed to Goodwill.  Jasmine needed some pieces for her new cosplay, basically she


She now has everything she needs, just have to make her handkerchief, paint the headphones and make the weapon, and that's it.

After Goodwill we actually went by Aaron's to see if they had any ride on mowers available, but unfortunately they only have it online, so that was a bust of a visit.

Next we went by the Dollar Tree, I hadn't been there in a couple of months.  We have 2 Dollar General's nearby as well as a Family Dollar, but the nearest Dollar Tree is about 20 minutes away so I don't always go by.  I do love it though, I always find so many things.  I got two organizing baskets for under my sinks, some Fourth of July things, and some dish sponges and brillo pads.  Jasmine got the red lipstick she needed and Curt picked up some picture frames for his Class Graduation pictures that he still had to put up on the Office wall.

After that it was Walmart for Dog Food, and of course hubby got Marley some toys and a big bone to chew on, which he absolutely adores.

By the time we got home, I was so done being out in the heat.  My feet hurt, my stupid head cold/sinus/lightheaded whatever was starting up again and I just wanted to relax.

So I can say that by 5pm, I had already taken my shower and gotten into my pajamas.

A good day.

Or at least I thought it was until I took that picture above of Jasmine's outfit.  Right after I took that picture, I set my camera down and it came tumbling down onto the tiled floor.  It broke my favorite 50mm f1.4 lens, and it also busted one of the pins inside the lens compartment.  I am now down to my zoom lens which doesn't really help for day to day photos.  I'm so upset and sad, I've had this camera for 6 years and have been so careful with it because really, it's not an expense that we can just have or go out and quickly buy another.

I don't know when I'll be able to get a new camera, so I'm completely bummed out.  I will have to use my 18-55mm standard lens, which had started acting up the past year, not really auto focusing etc.  But I'll make do, at least the camera still works so I'm thankful and blessed for that.

Anyway, that was my Saturday.  I'm going to go and make myself a cup of coffee and a sandwich (that will be my dinner tonight, not too hungry) and then I'm going to sit down and wait for the new The Dead Files episode at 8pm, and maybe watch one or two more episodes of the Orange is the New Black before going to sleep.

Goodness, I just pray that tomorrow I wake up feeling 100% better and this foggy head feeling is gone, I've about had enough of it.

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday night.


  1. You may have a sinus infection since your cheekbones hurt to touch. I hope you feel better soon.

  2. I was thinking the same thing....and maybe an inner ear infection if you're feeling dizzy, too!!! Feel better soon!!

  3. Sounds like a long Saturday for you. As for my family, we finally had the graduation party, and had many folks over. We were exhausted at the end of the night. Today, it's back to the garden to water. The heat is rising here.

  4. Sorry to hear about your camera and I hope you feel better soon - the lightheaded feeling is very disconcerting. What exactly is cosplay?

  5. Sounds like a long Saturday. I hope that today is a better day and you have found some relief from your sinus stuff.
