I LOVE FRIDAYS......all of them!

I try to order my pictures and my comments but it seems I goof it up no matter how hard I try so if it sounds confusing it's because it is!  I splurged and bought 2 new books and a new magazine.  This issue of Quilt has a gorgeous pumpkin throw size quilt that I ADORE!!!!  It is bright and colorful and when I get some money ahead I will be making it!  Tonight is football....Philadelphia Eagles and the Cincinnati Bengals...I get lots of handwork done during these games but sometimes I miss good plays or stitches or both.  Have a great Friday!
I went grocery shopping today and if I haven't shared with you...I am trying to take better care of myself.  First I quit smoking and I am still on the patch but it's working.  Then I started taking good care of my skin by getting some good skin products.   I got that Reader's Digest book on Living a Long Life and started reading that.  It said that people who ate whole-grain cereal every day were 17% less likely to die over the next several years from ANY cause, and 20% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease so it was a no-brainer!  I went and researched on the internet and most people voted for Fiber One cereal by General Mills so I bought a box with 51% of the daily requirement for fiber.  Then there was a display of another NEW high-fiber whole-grain cereal that had a mail-in rebate of the total cost of the cereal!  So, if you want to add fiber to your diet for FREE!!!!!  Go buy Kellogg's Fiber Plus.  I came home and had a bowl of Fiber One and it was delicious but I haven't tried the other yet.Now, the other area is exercise and I was exercising by walking 3 miles a day but it has been so hot here all summer that I gave up!  In the North, I would walk whenever and if it was cold I just dressed warm but here it is TOO HOT...and you can only take off so many clothes without getting arrested and even nude you wouldn't be cool in this heat.  So, I will walk again as soon as it cools off but meanwhile I saw this exercise "kit" and decided to try it.  There's the exercise band, Richard Simmons with his great music and the neatest thing is this food mover calculator thingy which I haven't investigated yet but looks very interesting!
I usually drink Dunkin' Donuts coffee and I love it but today I saw this Dunkin' TURBO and with all the things I plan on doing I think I better start drinking this TURBO version!
I ordered these the other day and they arrived in the  mail today!  I'm SO EXCITED!!!!  The one DVD is for kids to learn to build...(I'm just an older version)...I want to learn to build things and have for a long time.  Mostly just to fix things around the house or remodel if I get REALLY good! I figured this is a good place to start. The other DVD is by the West sisters who have a whole series of DVD's about homestead skills.  There are ones on cooking, gardening, quilting etc.  I'll let you know how I do!

    Turbo coffee sounds good to me. Sounds like you are keeping really busy.
    Yes I took off from bloging and thrifting for about three months, but I came back. Hard to stop a good thing.
