Yes, I realize I didn't post last night. Sorry about that. I only went out once yesterday and that was to pick up a gardening bucket at Lowe's. They have a promotion going through the month of April where you can go each week and get some things for free. This week was a bucket with a bag of potting soil, plant food, gardening gloves, and seeds! Very cool! You can use the bucket and do container gardening or plant the seeds elsewhere. I am not sure what next week's 'kit' will be, but this was very cool. While I was out, I called my bestie to see if she would like STarbucks. She is recovering from Covid, so she can't really go out right now. I took her a peppermint white mocha (her favorite) and place it outside her back door and hurried away! :p I felt a little treat would be nice for her. I got myself one, too! :p
Today, my friend and did a thrifting trip. He did not get off at noon like he sometimes does on Friday, so we had to wait until he got off at 2:30. We went to Greensboro and ate at Herbie's place. They have breakfast all day and it's good, too! We ate and then went to five Goodwill stores over there and we didn't even get to all of them! I found some goodies, too! Remember the Sak bag that I found at the beach and didn't get and then bought on eBay? The one I found in teal later and then had two? Well, one of the Goodwill stores had it in purple! Now I have three versions of that bag. :p I also picked up another Sak bag in there that is blue. It was very pretty and in excellent shape. I found two Starbucks things. One at two different Goodwill stores. One is a plastic 16oz tumbler and one is a lidded ceramic tumbler from the holiday collection in 2011! Very cool. Here are those finds:
I have another green tumbler like this one that I bought in the store back in the early days of me going to Starbucks. This one is just like it with a different design. The ceramic was is nice and in perfect condition, not a nick or scratch on it! Other finds today were a small paper cutter, some pens, a ream of printer paper for $2, a cute Mario Bros mushroom zipper case, three ceramic jack o lanterns and one big fabric 'bucket' jack o lantern, and a weather alert radio just like the one I found on the way home from the beach last year. This is the same radio, only the newer model and it wax still in the box and had the manual. It will be nice to have backup or I could put it in another part of the house. Speaking of weather alerts, it's storming here and the lightning was so intense I could see it through my blinds. I was waiting for a loud BOOM! I hope I don't lose power before I get this posted. Yikes! :P
In one Goodwill, I saw a pair of almost brand new Nike shoes and they were my color and they were in my size. My friend bought them for me. Yay! I love them and they'll probably replace my daily shoes. I even wore them for a bit after I got them to test them out. Pretty comfy. like Nike shoes so its was a nice thing to find. I have one more picture to share. I took a picture of the pretty little tree in the parking lot at Herbie's. Here you go!
Such a pretty little tree! :) I forgot to mention that after we left one Goodwill and were headed to another, we passed a Starbucks that I'd never been to. My friend asked if I wanted to stop, I said YES!!!!!!!!! lol, I got a peppermint white mocha again and was able to grab a stack of cards to add to my collection. I also saw a Tumber I want. :p I didn't get it, but it's on my 'want list' now.
