Thrifting and walking and food, oh my!
Friday, May 04, 2018
So, I got in my regular walk today. I stopped at CVS and got a book of stamps before heading home. I didn't do my workouts after I got home as usual. Instead, I went to the grocery store. I spent more than I planned, but I got a lot of goodies. I came home and put those away. My friend wanted to eat and walk again! I was surprised because he was pretty tired last night. :p
We rode to Eden NC to a trail over there. First we ate at a little pizza place called Stella's pizza. It was quite good. They are really just take out/delivery, but they had one booth inside and we ate in. It was some damn good pizza! After that, we headed to Goodwill so we wouldn't miss it before they closed. I found a brand new pack of Staedler colored pencils for .49! I also found a restaurant notebook, some assorted stationery, and a few other things. The notebook is cool. You can keep track of restaurants you visit. The stationery was some envelopes, some cute little cards and various other things. Perfect for a pen pal person! I also found a Fossil brand black leather purse. It's so nice and I paid a whole 1.49 for it! Yes, ONE DOLLAR and forty nine cents! WHOO! I love a good bargain. I also go a vintage candle trimmer thing. You use it on the bottom of a candle so it will fit in a candle holder. I also got a nice new wallet with the $35 price tag will on it for $2. And, I found a Weight Watchers kit. It's got two books on the point system and a little journal. It's pretty cool. Those things are really expensive brand new and I didn't have to join WW! LOL
All in all, it was a good trip to Goodwill. After that, we went to the trail. Almost this time last year, a tornado went through that trail and there was a lot of damage to trees. They have a plaque about it. The trail was re-directed at one point from the original trail! We got through walking and headed back.
I got home and did my workouts. It was stretch day and it felt so good to stretch! I am now going to relax until bed time as I'm extremely tired. I need to catch up my receipts from today in my checkbook and see how much damage I did! :P OH! I also received in the mail today my very first coffee grinder. I got some whole bean coffee at the grocery store. I am still working on making the perfect cup. I made my first cup tonight and it was pretty good, but I want to experiment and see what I can come up with. The grinder is easy to use and makes the kitchen smell good!
