DH was off today and tomorrow. Went to the post office, took stuff to soup kitchen, returned a bath shelf and got my free lotion at Bath & Body Works. We are getting a surprising amount back on our taxes, so DH bought me tickets to see James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt for my birthday in August. Going to be able to buy the kennel to replace the old one that goes with the chicken house, too. My bluebirds are back and busy in the birdhouse. Went to Tractor Supply and bought mealworms for them. Tomorrow I am weeding the garden and getting ready to plant warm crops next week.

Weeding the garden today, and that's probably about it.
03-17-2017, 11:44 AM
GB, I hope yours is not as bad as mine. Normally by now I'd have been out several times and cleared all of last years debris and got to the early weeds.
One of my sourdoughs is fine, the other I may have killed over the winter but I resurrected it with some dry starter I had held back.
Our new cards came so I need to order the asparagus, finally.
Get into the garden for at least ten minutes today.
Make bread and muffins.
Prep an appetizer to take to friend's house tonight.
Get started on a handmade gift.
All on one foot. The swelling is down a lot, my toes look like little prunes in the morning but unfortunately are back to balloons by nightfall. I'm walking on 3/4 of the foot, still can't put weight on the big toe and it starts to ache after a while. Still using the knee roller a good bit.
It's been awful quiet in the village lately. Hope everyone is well.
03-17-2017, 02:40 PM
I would love to work on prepping my garden, but it is currently covered with snow. This has been a wacky season for sure.
CH, how do you store your sour dough starter long term? I made a starter, but couldn't keep up with it, so ended up pitching it. If there was a way to put it "on hold" so to speak, I probably could manage better. We just don't eat that much bread & the kids are too far away to just drop them off some bread.
Today is my day off. Usually I have something planned & am quite busy. I am in a weird state, nothing sounds interesting right now. I forced myself yesterday to do a few things, cleaned my granite counters, used the special cleaner on the stove top, did dishes. Today was similar. I don't have anything pressing to do, though I have plenty I could do & probably should do. So I made brownies, unloaded, loaded dishwasher, portioned out chili for freezer, cut up turkey breast from a couple days ago, making broth in pressure cooker now. I did a general pick up & put away session, so everything is pretty tidy. I really don't want to start anything like cleaning closets or drawers...
I have to go to town tomorrow, so no need to go now, especially since it is snowing. I am seriously considering buying another sewing machine. There was an ad in the paper that there will be a sale of "student" Singer sewing machines for $149.00. I have been having trouble with sewing machines. I used to be very good at sewing, even won an award back in the day, but recent years, I have spent more time trying to get a machine to work than actually sewing. I have an antique Canadian Singer that I always fell back on, but now something is wrong with it. I have never been able to do much with the $800.00 Baby Loc. I think I may have damaged the bobbin case. And there are several others... So I am going tomorrow to take a look.
I finally got my credit card situation resolved. They took off the charge temporarily, then put it back on, then the fraud unit took it back off. Hopefully it's done. Had to update the cell phone auto pay with the new number & it was a big whooping deal! I just want to give them money. The phone is in my ex son in laws name, since he got it when he used to work at the cell company. I had to have the last 4 digits of his SS# to update. Then it won't update until next month so had to go through the whole hoop- de- rah again to pay this months bill & they were going to charge me an extra $5.00 for paying over the phone. So that's done.
Need to find something to do...
Everyone have a good day!
03-17-2017, 03:20 PM
Winkie, I have found that starter will keep about 6 months without feeding. There may be very little left alive in it by that point, but if you feed it, it comes back eventually. It may take a few days to get to the point you can make bread with it. If you can remember to feed it quarterly, you should be able to keep a good strain forever. I just put the starter in the coldest part of the fridge.
Beware the "student" sewing machine scam. They are not overstock school machines. That's BS. They are just travelling salesmen selling cheap low-end machines. More importantly, there is no warranty or service support on them, no matter what they say. They take your money and are gone the next day. You are better off getting a cheap machine through Sears or Walmart, where at least you can return it if it does not work. Better yet, if there is a sewing machine shop in your area, ask them about any used trade ins they might have. They will show you how to use the machine and service it too.
But since you already have two machines, why not just get one repaired?
I did my ten minutes in the garden and got the raised bed weeded. DH came out and helped get one mother of a yellow dock root out with the shovel, and he put my cucumber trellis back up. The big wind storm a few weeks ago took off all our trellises.
I need to go back out and tackle the wintercreeper that is trying to take over the yard and the escaped honeysuckle I thought I had killed last year. Maybe tomorrow.
03-17-2017, 03:25 PM
Winkie-checkout the reveiws for them online. I got DD a project runway machine online and she has loved it for years. It does all the embroidery stitches. Came w/ a good case. I usually buy mine at S.A. for about $30. and order accessories online at ebay or that. I have a cheap $100. singer from Target and DD has the same one. But I have a metal WHITE machine also. Joannes services machines but it may only be ones they sell now. AND yes it is lightly sleeting? here. Was supposed to start at noon and just began @ 2:30.
I have been shopping stamps again today and was bad. I will call it a St. Patricks Day present.lol
DH leaves again Sun. for a week so he actually went to get a haircut. I was laughing because he wanted to get in before they "filled up". WHAT,will there be a ST. Patricks DAy line??lol He is so funny.
I decided not to do anything today for cooking. I will maybe make everything tomorrow??
03-17-2017, 04:12 PM
FW- had to laugh at the hair cut comment. My DH goes at 5:45 AM so he can be first when they open @ 6:00. He always comes home with a report of how many were in front of him!
CH & FW - you are both right about the sewing machine. I think the old Singer can be easily fixed, but it just does straight stitch. There is a sewing machine repair shop in the next town who should be able to handle it. The Baby Loc needs to go back to Cleveland which is a bit over an hour drive. I bought it on a whim while at the Home & Garden Show probably 8 years ago. I think the problem is I never learned how to use it. I also have a White I bought used that isn't working right & my old favorite Singer Golden Touch & Sew that I bought 40 some years ago brand new. The Touch & Sew can't be repaired any longer, I need to pitch it. I don't know why I was sucked in by the ad for the student machines. I guess I just wanted instant gratification. It would just be nice to sit down & sew & not have to mess with the machine forever. Thanks for bringing me back to earth.
03-17-2017, 04:12 PM
Thanks CH for the sourdough info.
03-17-2017, 06:45 PM
Winkie well worth your time to find someone who can service the Singer if needed. I took mine to a "Brother" repair shop when it needed service. Then I got brave and started watching Youtube videos and cleaned/oiled/ and made some small repairs myself. I downloaded the manual from the Singer web site. Read the diagrams and figured out part names. Ordered parts off the internet. Mine is a very old 1950's machine "Rocketeer" model. It does what I need.
Still busy w/ work. Everything else just has to wait for another month. Snow is melting here but I am not tempted to go mess in the yard or garden yet. Hope everyone else is well.
03-17-2017, 08:21 PM
OK now wait a minute. Is the singer a good metal one or anything. If it only straight stitches I WOULDNT repair it unless it has sentimental value or maybe if it was metal. I got rid of moms old metal one w/ case because a spring busted and I am still kicking myself years later. I was lazy and ddint want to haul it in for weight. How much do you sew and would you sew more w/ less hassles. I'm thinking the repair would be more than a new one and still only be a straight stitcher. IDK I would browse at Joannes and buy online.
SO HAPPY ST PATRICKS blizzard.We just got 3" delivered in 1/2 hr w/ quarter sized flakes. Poor DH we had ordered a pizza is normal weather and 10 min later the guy said there were 3 accidents in the mile he needed to drive to get it.
Going to make a meal tomorrow. Wasnt motivated today.lol
AND yes DH got his hair cut w/ brave tales of how many ahead and how the young people were filing in after work. I guess in our 50's we are "old folks" speak for yourself man.
03-17-2017, 08:27 PM
Dcpa-love that machine-looked it up. Please tell me you have the pink one!!
03-17-2017, 08:42 PM
CH, I can imagine what your foot looks like by the end of the day. The last 3 months of my pregnancy with our son my feet (especially the left one) swelled up horribly and stayed that way till after he was a couple of weeks old. The only shoes I wore for that whole time were men's black flip-flops. My brother said my feet looked like potatoes with toes. I had DH take pictures for posterity.
Don't overdo----feet heal slowly.
fw, I laughed at your DH at Aldi. My DH is different----whenever we go shopping together he always lags behind. I tend to zip through the store to get it over with but DH will be a few aisles over from me, looking at stuff. He spent over 20 minutes one time looking at pickles. No, he didn't grow up in a jungle where he never saw a store. He just loves to look at the variety of things.
Gbug----James Taylor? Sweet baby James? Oh, I'm jealous. What a fabulous present!
Winkie, I know next to nothing about sewing machines but I agree with the advice everyone has given you.
dlrcpa, isn't Youtube great? I learned how to light the pilot light in my oven from a video there. Scared me to death the first time, but I figured if the Youtube posters could do it, so could I.
Anyone I missed, hi, hope you're okay.
Been enjoying the warmer weather today. After highs in the low 40s the past few days, today was close to 70 and sunshiny. Gorgeous day.
Today I cleaned some windows, did some vacuuming, really thrilling stuff like that. For Saturday I'm doing laundry, going to my nephew's ball game, mopping, and continuing going through boxes of my parents' belongings. No cooking because we're still enjoying the turkey I cooked on Wednesday.
03-17-2017, 09:20 PM
ILc-would love to do windows but its too cold. DH just looks at stuff then announces I'm going to go sit in the car. I hate that as it makes me feel obligated to hurry which make me forget things. Just stay home then. He likes watches,books and electronics after that-bored. When we go to S.A. he always gets "a prize". I can buy the whole store if he gets a raven bit=something small,shiny and electronic.lol He always wants me to call him in the store when I'm done. HOW many stores have I been in w/ no signal. Kmart,Sams,every groc. etc. Just meet me back up front in 20 min. It worked for mom and dad?
Going to bed and rent Passengers too dang cold.
03-18-2017, 04:36 AM
I read a few days ago my favorite ice cream shop opens a store in my old neighborhood. Since I moved out my favorite bakery also opened across the street. I think I would have spend a lot of money if I still lived there.
My birthday was last week and we'll visit my family this weekend. The gifts from my BF and his mom were replacements of broken things.
Fold laundry and run dishwasher before we leave for the island I come from.
03-18-2017, 11:16 AM
Never will I understand my DH's logic. He is moving everything to mop his bathroom floor-wow. But then I dont smell anything so I ask what he mopped w// HOT WATER-WTH. All these animals and a bathtoom why bother. 10' away was a cabinet w/ bleach.DW soap,lysol floor cleaner,vinegar. There wasnt anything in here. REALLY. Ya walked past it to go in HERE. Helpful-no
We had a 3rd storm of large fluffy flakes that stayed all the power lines,trees everything fluffy white. Happy March.
03-18-2017, 03:01 PM
I do think the old Singer is worth fixing, or at least getting an estimate. It is metal, plus it is pretty small & not hard to find a place to keep it. I think I paid $12.00 for it when I was a teenager & I have never been able to part with it. I tried selling it at a garage sale, but decided to keep it. It has always worked, until the last time I tried it about a week ago. Great for those quick mending jobs. I will also get the Baby Lock fixed. I got my brain engaged & realized there are probably places in Columbus that can help me with it. I googled it & yes, there are several choices. ( the Internet search also brought to light that I had been spelling the name wrong). Columbus is also an hour or so drive away, but I go there frequently, because my DD2 lives there. So I have a plan...
I agree you tube is great. I figured out to change the bulb in a rear projector TV back a few years ago & was able to bring it back to life with a $99.00 bulb rather than a $350.00 repairman visit.
Went " Krogering" today & pretty much just bought stuff with WhooHoo stickers. The cashier even mentioned it! They had round steak buy one/get one & I got brave enough to ask if they would run it through the cuber. The meat lady was charming & did it right away! Stopped @ Drug Mart & got Arid deodorant for $1.00 each. Also got a free movie rental there w/points. Got Sully. Last week we saw The Accountant.
Now I have sheets in dryer, towels in washer, will make pork chops & boiled potatoes for dinner. Tomorrow we are having scalloped potatoes & ham from the freezer.
Dh helped me in the garden again this morning. I got in 15 minutes of exercise digging out more dandelions. This is more exercise than I have had in months, but is likely to be an ongoing battle. We need mulch but can't get it until the community garden opens for weekends next month.
That's a cute machine Winkie!
Got corned beef in the crockpot for dinner. It is beyond beautiful out today, we took a bunch of houseplants out for sun and air. They are looking pretty ragged after being wintered over indoors.
Going to work on crafts this afternoon.
03-18-2017, 10:49 PM
Nice you got into the garden CH. Those 15 minute sessions will add up. I need to do the same. I used to be pretty active, but got sick around the first of the year & became a slug. Now I need to build up my endurance.
What kind of mulch do you get? We get mulch from the county, for $15.00 a truck load. They grind up all the trees, limbs, etc, compost it, then sell it. I have only used it on the flower beds. They also make leaf mulch & we haven't gotten that, but it seems like that would be good on my vegetable garden.
03-18-2017, 11:22 PM
WEll there ya go Winkie -metal,sentimental and a place to go. I was actually at S.A. and they had 3 machines w/ cabinets but everything seemed ratty and expensive there today. We went to s second one and I got stuffies for the dogs. DH found some computer cartridge for $4. that would retail for $100.?? so he says.
So ok. Angelic fluffy snow landed. It was pretty. Now its slop. Can we be done now. Trash tomorrow will be annoying and I'm tired of all the extra effort it takes to do the simplest shopping. The dogs have cabin fever and wore themselves out tearing up several new stuffing filled toys,then slept. GLad they run .25. It cracks me up when mikey and hunty each take a side of a long armed monkey and tug. Mikey is using minimal effort at 100# and Hunty is really seriously giving it his all at 40#. Mikey is so good hearted w/ him. Hes a good dog its not his fault if hes tigger on a Rottweiler frame w/ a beagle brain.
I accomplished about nothing today.I vow to kick it up once next week starts. Snow lulls me to coma...
03-18-2017, 11:31 PM
And I am sore from just that 15 minutes of work. Ugh. Going to spray weeds tomorrow, invasive honeysuckle and wintercreeper.
I can get hay bales from the community garden for $5. We can also get free mulch from the city, but it's very chunky sometimes and I've been warned that it has herbicide in it so we don't use it in the vegetable garden, just certain parts of the yard.
03-19-2017, 08:34 AM
Must confess I love old sewing machines and playing detective to identify what the mysterious "accessories" are and do. I used to like the sewing.about.com forum where people posed questions and I would try to answer. No, my Rocketeer is not pink, it is tan. All I really use is straight and zig-zag stitch. It has some decorative ones that I rarely use. I had found an old library book "Speed Sewing" that I found useful so I bought my own copy from Amazon. It gave me a lot of good ideas relevant to old machines. https://www.amazon.com/Speed-Sewing-.../dp/0442224885
Working (paid) again today. Drudgery. It is overcast with rain/snow mix. Don't expect any accumulation but we need the rain. I will to bake later, bran muffins and bread. Need to make another pot of soup this week for my lunches.
Went to Gsons soccer game yesterday and then to the casino with free tickets to see The Commodores. Great concert and I won a little money to boot.
Today I am going to finish weeding the garden, sweep the front porch, and probably nothing else. DH did manage to get most of the mowing done yesterday morning, but he still has the weed eater and push mowing to do in smaller spots. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will get done by tomorrow. It is suppose to be in the 80s all week here. Unbelievable.
03-19-2017, 11:59 AM
well, we have some sun and I'll take it.
Doing a little bulldozing in the bedroom. Got a load to toss in. Hanging a bunch of clothes washed when i was dizzy but couldnt hang.
My sugar was good this morning and I am under my first milestone. Hopefully I can keep heading down.
DH left at 9 a.m. for another trip fpr a week in s.carolina. Actually vert close to 50/50 this year. More travel than ever.
Made my goal of 12 months EF and bought a new desk top last night from SAMS club. They had free shipping and $100. tech discount so it tipped me. That and this computer is unusable w/o great irritation. I got an HP ENVY 5i 6400 processor w/ 12GB memory.1TB Hard drive Windows 10. Item #810570 (4/11 the tech discount goes away) Came w/ new keyboard and mouse but I will use the old monitor for awhile. DH is irritated-too bad. The unit was $499. and tx. He said it is a good machine and the reveiws are good. Anything will seem almost magic from the old grampa computer. So in 5 days it gets here. I may let Dh install it. He loves to play w/ computers all day everyday.
Well once again-super duper you guys are garden envied. We have mulch available at the DPW if I wanted to drive all the way down but no delivery. Most of the times its just chipped materials.
03-19-2017, 12:56 PM
Supposed to be 80 today (but cold again during the week). Slept late because I hurt all over now. I am so out of shape. I hope I can loosen up enough to go spray weeds later. FW, my garden is not worth envy yet. I hope you enjoy your sunny day. I wish DH would mow, the yard is already 6" deep, but he got grumpy at the suggestion that there is MORE gardening to do yet so I doubt he will leave the house all day.
03-19-2017, 01:03 PM
fw, congrats on the new computer. And sorry about the soupy, slushy snow. N. Georgia has gotten some this year but not us.
Tine, happy belated birthday!
Gbug, oh, James Taylor, I still love his music. What fun that will be!
CH, Winkie, dlrcpa, and anyone I missed, Hi.
Yesterday and today I've been washing throws from the den, the sofa slipcover, my clothes, mine and DH's towels and sheets, etc. 8 loads total but I hadn't done laundry in a couple of weeks. I hope to pack away the heavy throws and just keep out a couple of lightweight ones because it's still chilly in the mornings. Went to church and breakfast. For the rest of the day I've got Bible study homework, menu planning, and need to cut off turkey and package it for the freezer.
03-19-2017, 03:28 PM
Sure would like some ooomff today. I am weak and wasted. I need meat I think.
CH-grass is an enviable thing right now. I have snow,mud,slush.leaves and filthy doggie print all over the downstairs. I opened the window and aired it out.
03-19-2017, 04:24 PM
Glad you were able to open the window for some air. I dragged myself outside and sprayed the honeysuckle and some patches of wintercreeper, and cut the vines growing in the lilacs. Will need to follow up in a week.
I wish we had snow and slush, it would mean we had enough water in the ground. It was a record dry winter and is shaping up to be a dry spring. We have even had burn bans in effect on windy weekends, it is so dry. My summer water bill is going to be a killer. Which reminds me I need to ask DH to hook up the rain barrels in case we get some this week.
It is 85 and climbing... need to put iced coffee latte mix on the grocery list...
03-19-2017, 05:46 PM
My challenges are to get my 8x11 mixed media canvas done and my junk journal 30 lists done, both for a couple of online swaps I am doing.
I reserve Sundays to do as I want, listen to music/podcasts and work on art. Husband has other ideas but I'm standing my ground for my "me" time. Housework can wait until tomorrow when he's not home to be under foot.
The canvas is coming together and the junk journal needs some additional decor and will be ready to hit the mail tomorrow. I may have to hot glue the flowers onto the canvas but we'll let the white glue have a chance to set. Otherwise it may be ready for tomorrow's mail also.
03-19-2017, 07:28 PM
dlrcpa- thanks for the link! I watched that video & a couple more. It really is a sweet little machine, but I never really investigated it before. The lady that sold it to me said it was Canadian- well now we know that is not the case.
ILC- 8 loads of laundry? Amazing!
It's still in the 30's around here. Most of the snow is melted, there is a little left in the shady areas. We have a to of lawn work to do before we ever mow. There are branches down all over.
I did very little today. Went to church & served lunch. DH made popcorn for supper.
Everyone have a great evening.
03-19-2017, 08:12 PM
RR1-welcome. Thats all out of my realm so if you want to share pictures done or at diff stages that would be interesting to me.
So i sensed DH was not very pleased i was keeping my 15" monitor thats OLD and recycled from another job when he worked for HP w/ no shut off button. So I looked at SAMS Club. And purchased an HP 21.5" IPS LED backlit monitor for $129.. w/ tx. shipped free. There is tech savings of $20. on that until 4/11 also. I compared Walmart and Microcenter,and a few others. So DH is happy. I keep forgetting there are no kids to tak ecare of and as long as I am no spending frivilous its ok. It was so easy. So now I have to empty this desk.=thats the hard part.
Winkie-mmm popcorn. I found this michgan made popcorn w/ olive oil and no anything added except white cheddar. Wouldnt mind a bit more. Just have to watch my carbs.
03-19-2017, 09:44 PM
Just spent an hour on Ebay looking at purses. The 1 I have has a broken zipper and its past time. Very overwhelming. I like black and compartments. I usually just happen to see one at the S.A. and grab it for about $7. I have sticker shock. I am just realizing also I dont need a mom purse. This is a weird process. I can do what i want.HOws that work?lol
03-20-2017, 08:24 AM
Good morning. Got the rest of the garden weeded and one part of the compost box done. My eldest DS and wife made a surprise visit yesterday on their way home from a camping trip. I gathered a few radishes yesterday. Happy spring to everyone. Working at the soup kitchen this morning, got to make a Walmart run for bird seed and stain for my porch swing. DH and I have to take some homestead papers to the tax office after he gets off work. I have some old water hose that are going to magically disappear today too. The outdoor cleanup has begun and what DH doesn't know, won't hurt him. Have a great day!
03-20-2017, 09:21 AM
GB-sound like my dad. He was always making something out of obvious garbage.
And my dh who saved the last non working sump which I made him throw out and the recycle raven grabbed. He's keeping the last old one w/ the sticking arm for now-in case we want to burn the house down apparently. Or I guess me-I just let go of 2 cat furniture pieces that could have been,but I never would have, recarpeted. I got one from the garbage and paid $10. for the other. We are all so silly.
So after I got the computer and monitor,I bought some more collectible stamps,and I'm bidding on 2 purses. Thats a lot of let go of $$ for me at once esp. after the sump. Still need a wallet,shoes,hair cut,new vehicle-oh my!lol I'm teetering betweem a safety pile in the bank and using things so old it makes my life more difficult. I cant wait for the new computer now because this one is so slow and buggy. IK some people couldnt get the concept that I choose to use junk but we were very poor for awhile. And his income has kept going nicely but it comes at a hard earned price w/ all these trips. Its the anniversary of his last surgery this month and I cant believe its been a yr.
It is so drab today and could start raining any time but most of the snow is gone-woot. Our backyard is a pigpen of mud though and my 3 little piglets are so gross. Hunty must have been digging last night. He always wants to come in and jump all over me for a cookie.I just wish we had a utility room like my childhood home.
Headed out in a bit to Sams for groc,paper towels and such. GOing to cruise around if I can just for the excercise.
Everyone have a nice day. No more gardening talk allowed though.lol
03-20-2017, 09:57 AM
GB- I want to hear all about gardening, even though I am months behind you. We will have to ask FW to close her eyes when gardening topics come up :)
FW you will love the new monitor! Now that I have a larger one on my home computer & two huge ones on my work computer, I can never go back. I love the dual screens on my work computer, I could use three sometimes.
Yes purses can be quite pricey... My DD1 is a purse snob & spent what I consider an obscene amount on them. I can keep the same one forever, but do want real leather. I now have the grandma purse, usually some gold fish crackers or Cheerios, occasionally gummy fruit snacks & lots of Kleenex. I have the Frozen purse pack tissues, so I am a cool grandma.
03-20-2017, 10:02 AM
GB -I wanted to add that I hung on to my old hose because I saw on Pinterest that you can cut it up & paint it to look like snakes to keep the birds from eating the seeds. They completely dug up & ate whole rows a couple years ago. But I still don't have the snakes made yet!
03-20-2017, 02:05 PM
Not much happening here today. It is already 80 out. Yesterday we hit a record 87F. AC on in March, unbelievable. Looking forward to the cool spell later this week.
Messing about with flower pots. Got some marigold seed I saved from the plants I bought last year, and a couple heads I pinched from the city garden. :vs_smirk: Going to try pinks and snapdragon from seed, they tend to do well when i buy them. Also planting morning glory. One year we had some climb all over our lilac tree and it was beautiful. I keep trying to recreate that but they never survive.
I think I will do some foil packet fish on the grill tonight. No sense heating up the kitchen.
03-20-2017, 02:11 PM
Winkie you can stand there all day hammering nails to make a sprinkler but I'm not doing IT!!lol Gardening-lalallalalalalalalaaI cant hear yoooou. No to snakes,snakes in the zoo behind glass, rubber snakes,pictures of snakes in books,knitted toy cloth snakes and movies w/ any snake no matter how small.. Bleh!! I actually have a green thumb and no where to use it!
So I lost me cheap,money hoarding mind and I like it. I went to Sams and made it rain. I got 2 pairs of skechers,1 for working out,2 extra cover your behind tshirts,a PB book,a pkg. of reading glasses, 8 new towels all towels are $4.91 now from $8. ,2 new pillows. I also got strawberries,raspberries, a cooked chicken softball sized oranges,a huge bag of walnuts,steak,a big bag of string cheese and paper plates so I dont have to do dishes sometimes. Also got Maxx 3 cases of cat food and 4 canisters of temptations. I walked aroung the whole store and felt pretty good. I then wnet to Kroger and got milk,bananas,lunchmeat, diff steak,and gaught the Classico sauce sale. $3.19 down to $1.49 if you get 5 so I got 10.
