It was supposed to rain all day today, but luckily when I got up today there was sunshine. It did get overcast later, but it never rained. I live in a river city as I've mentioned before and we had a LOT of flooding here in the city. There are roads closed and underwater. I was glad it stopped raining because I had to run to the bank today. I wanted to get out a few dollars since my friend and I were doing our thrift store run tomorrow. I probably won't get my new debit card until Monday or later, so I just wrote a check for cash and got $20. I am sure if I run out of cash, my friend will front me until I can get my debit card and pay him back.
That crazy puzzle is driving me nuts! I got a lot more done of it today, but I think some of the parts are not done correctly. The raspberries are the hardest part and I'm working on them. I finally just gave up for the evening and I thought I'd leave it until tomorrow. I was just getting frustrating! I might take parts out and do it over. I know the blueberries are right. It's just those darn raspberries.
Here is the progress:
I am going to take out the majority of the raspberries tomorrow and start over on that part. The puzzle wouldn't be so bad if the pieces were cut almost in exactly the same shapes. Pieces fit where they don't do. It's frustrating, but I'm determined to finish it!
I got a new wallet in the mail today from eBay. It's a Relic brand. I'm pretty sure they are also a Fossil brand, just the cheaper version of their stuff. I had a Relic wallet a long time ago that I adored. I wore it just about out. I looked recently to see if I could find a version of it and did. It's smaller than the one I had, but it's pretty similar. It's blue and I love it. Here is the new wallet:
It's a smaller wallet than my usual ones. It's a good size for my smaller purse. I liked my Pink Fossil wallet, but it's really too tiny. This is perfect. I can put my most used cards in it and my coupons and other things without it being overstuffed. I don't like to overstuff my wallets. This little wallet has a removable wrist strap and a shoulder strap that can be used. I am not using either, but I have them stored in case I want to use them. The best thing? This is brand new and it still had the tags. I got it for a lot less than the list price. :)
I put a load of clothes in to wash last night and then forgot to move them to the dryer because I got caught up in my current read. I had to make myself stop reading so I could go to bed! I am sure my clothes would have been okay to just toss in the dryer today, but just to be on the safe side, I rinsed them and spun them and then tossed them in the dryer. I just need to get those out and put them away. I plan to do that after posting here.
