In the mailbox today were two older, used books I ordered - one copyright 1985 found from a Goodwill in FL for $2.71 and one 2000 and in better condition, $8 from AZ. So I'm happy. HRH says it's so expensive to pay for my frivolous purchases.
In truth, we did make one big book purchase of 4 of the same new one that will be signed copies, proceeds donated, after they are published in Dec. One for each of our children. The offer came to my email and I immediately knew I wanted to take advantage if I could, but it was limited to first-come-first-serve. The last time I tried something like that I was way down the list and left out. Email came at 11:13 and I was finished with order, uploaded receipt and wrote out the sentiments I wanted on the autographs by 12:40. So far so good, it looks like I was within the limit.
I took darts in two pairs of pants (they fit much better now) and did some extra laundry, got my tote ready for Sunday with paychecks and order of worship printed. I could still beg off attending because dd would be there and could handle this - thinking.
Tahiti caught my attention. That seems so far away and special to me. So unusual.
