|That's me in the black cover-up. This was day 1, the first beach we hit. We went to at least one beach a day, every day.|
The kids enjoyed the waves,
But I was also amazed by the prices - why didn't anyone tell me how EXPENSIVE everything is there!?! All I could think was, "Thank goodness I just got paid!" :)
I was also amazed to learn when I stopped by the farm store today that I had my first sale (YAY!) and that the proprietor had gotten lots of positive comments about my items for sale, and she specifically asked that I make some of my pillowcase shopping bags to bring in to sell because she's interested in buying some and thinks others will be, too. Validation makes me so happy!
And surprisingly, yesterday I got bitten by the PURGING bug. I am a nester and a collector by nature, so when I am moved to get rid of something, I do it fast before the feeling passes. I took a load to the dump, 4 boxes to Goodwill, and I cleaned out my sewing/quilting books because my bookcase was overflowing. I was so proud of myself for pulling about 30 books out to get rid of, but my quilting books STILL don't fit. Gonna have to get another bookcase, I guess.
Anyway, I wanted to offer those books free to anyone who wants them. I was going to list them here and on Paperbackswap.com. I listed them on Paperbackswap.com first, and by the time I had finished listing all of them, 3 had already been requested. I went to cub scouts with the boys, and by the time we were done, 9 more had been requested and 7 were placed on hold. Holy cow! I had no idea they would move that fast!
I'll list what is left, and if you see a book you want, list it in a comment. If it hasn't been snapped up through Paperbackswap.com yet when I receive your comment by email, I'll put it in the mail to you. I'm just going to list titles and ISBN numbers - you'll have to look them up to see what they are actually all about. They are mostly older books, but all in very good condition.
