Long Time No See
Friday, January 18, 2013
Took a break from the blog, but not from my habitual penny pinching. Writing on a older MAC that was recycled from a brother-in-law which at the moment is faster than our old PC - we will see....
So much content on the old hard drive!
As an actress, I got a new agent - an accomplishment - I continue taking my "Sr. Citizen" commercial acting classes around the corner from my house - cheap & great!
Got thru Xmas by buying lots of BOOKS. Yes, everyone got books this year - 2 nice hardback in recycled gift bags from thrift stores & dollar store tissue paper! A bit bulky - but I had combined my - OK, I admit it - my DOLLAR Store hardbacks - just from one obscure dollar store, somehow - & bargains from the 50% off table at Barnes & Noble & the wonderful outdoor book store in Ojai, CA - Bart's - I also confess that I READ a lot of them 1st - very carefully! - so I knew that the books were good.
We recycled our Xmas decorations & hubby found THREE great nutcrackers at a yard sale to add to the collection & it all was quite festive. & we gpt the cards out, too -
Then we took a family trip up N. - first to Bakersfield & then on to Sacramento - & a few days there over New Year's. We even did a wine country trip to a small region near Placerville & stopped in 2 different Indian casinos. (Hubby''s brother likes sports bars & they watched the Packer game - I prefer to spend my $ shopping!) Also looked in the thrift shops of suburban Bakersfield & scored some bargains - $15 for a beaded chiffon jacket - back beads on wine chiffon - wore it for New Yr's Eve - even tho we celebrated quietly.....and some things at 50% off at a St. Vincent de Paul's -
Seems quiet since we have returned - & COLD. I have been getting a lot of wear out of my "beautiful coat" - the sparkly beige nylon car coat I have been wearing for years....Even in So. Cal, you need some winter clothes - & Sacramento was really chilly....
Warming up for MLK's birthday weekend - hope for lovely weather. How have you all been doing?
