As sick as I am today and as sick as my daughter is, both of us with colds I thought a walk would do us some good. It is trash day after all. I am hoping the exercise will help me sleep better tonight and with my daughter bundled up in her chair she might feel better too. It worked! She is a tad more alert and I have been able to get a few things done around the house. I know my energy will give out soon but I am ready for that with a good book and crocheting. I am without a car this week so this mornings walk included a trip to the post office to mail a couple of vintage book orders to far flung corners of the globe. I also took pictures of the fall leaves to use as my etsy store avatar. I took photos of S in her chair loaded down with our finds but for some reason they didn't turn out???! I am the worst photographer in the world. Anyway today I found a wooden bench to use as an end table. This replaces the smaller wobley bench that was there that the cats have knocked over twice in three weeks that I know of, once with a bowl of soup on it and once with a cup of coffee. The smaller bench has all ready been listed in freecycle. I also found 2 small trees to use as displays at craft shows, an ugly wreath that I will take apart and make pretty and a metal plant stand that all ready holds a large potted plant in the front window so it will catch the weak winter sun. All that and 2 pop cans that equal 20 cents!
