Thursday, just before breakfast - Oh, and I won again !

I made it to the hotel, even after the blizzard of the weekend. The highways were amazingly good. I headed straight to the hotel, ate the complimentary cookies and some decaf coffee. Usually I drink my coffee as strong as they can make it, but I've given up on caffeine after noon.
Today, I get to go for an orthopedic appt, probably shots in the knees and hips. They work wonders, but you can't overdo it right afterwards........or you do pay for it !!! Depending on how things go, I will get to do all my quick stops at the shops, and then late lunch, my nap, and a quick runthru of what's out there.
And I won again ! It was thru, and the did a review of Quick Snippers. Basically the Swiss army knife of decorative scissors...1 straight blade, and 5 fancy ones. I think it will be very handy to take to card class and make a quick edge so mine are a little different. (Please excuse me if I already posted this, not trying to make a big deal about it - I forget what I do and don't post sometimes) I should get it in the next week or so.
I'm very excited to go and pick up my Sew Easy heads. They do have gorgeous shades of threads, and they are about $3. I have tons of embroidery thread from my cross-stitching days, so I'll do some of that first. OKAY.....on to the posts....sorry I missed them yesterday.

Getting ready to go

Trip to the VA hospital for follow ups and probably shots in the hips and knees. I got my partial plate for my upper teeth last week, and am getting useed to those. I have several cavities, 3 of them pretty bad, that will be taken care of in the next six weeks Want to see pix of those ? LOLOL !

I dug my car out of the new foot of snow we got in our weekend blizzard, and we have a wonderful neighbor who has a snowblower and takes care of our front walks and driveway. Another neighbor in the back, takes care of the back driveway and the back walk. By now, the highways will be pretty clear, but I have to leave on Wed for my Thurs appt because it is at 9:40...NO way am I getting up that early and driving 125 miles. I will be in a town that has a Michael's, a Joanns, a Tuesday Morning, a Hobby Lobby, a TJ Maxx, and my favorite LSS - R Scrapbook store. Is there anything you want me to look at - to see if it is in stores yet - or if it is as pretty in real life as in the mags or online ?

I get to get the rest of the new heads for my Sew Easy - and I hear there are 6-8 new, larger heads coming out too. I'm also going to purchase the 7 Gypsies Binderie. They haven't been selling well at Hobby Lobby, and they were marked down to $23.99 a couple weeks ago. I think I have a pretty good chance of getting one. And then some more Tim Holtz bits and pieces, some more Black Magic Core'dinations, some springtime colored Bazzill papers, and a few other things that catch my eye. Full report on Saturday.

Now it's time for a quick nap before supper, then pack to leave in the morning. Two nights in a hotel.....I just love hotels for some reason. I'm sure my cats will snub me when I get back.

Later, xoxoLiz
