Blogmas Day #17

Well, remember how I wanted to go to the post office yesterday to mail some presents?  Well, I didn't because of the dicey road conditions but today was sunny and supposed to get into the 50's so off I went!  Until I tried to start my car and there was nothing but a ticking noise.  So, I went in and called B&J's and they said they'd be out.  I waited and called back...they forgot and then came out.  They gave me a charge so I could get it to the shop.  They gave me a new battery, checked oil, tires, needed oil and antifreeze all to the tune of $200......didn't I just spend $800 on my car this past summer?  Why is it when I think I can finally breathe a little financially.....something happens that takes my breath away!
I know, it could be worse.....so after that, there was still time to make it to the post office and I got the presents off in the mail!  Whew!  When I got home there was a package for me!  My yarn swift for $20.  Best deal of the year!
and the bulbs for my Christmas tree!
All's well that ends well!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Has this ever happened to you?  I received a beautiful Christmas card from a young family in Cedar Rapids, Iowa where my daughter lives and where I stayed this past summer while my son was in the hospital.  Lovely photograph of their family with 3 daughters and it was addressed to me so I thought it must have been one of Amy's friends that stopped by her house while I was there.  I asked Amy and she said she had no idea who they were.  I don't have any idea either!  It's driving me bonkers!  Do I send them a card back and ask them politely how I know them?  It's crazy and they look like such a nice family.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Last night Amy got the 2 magnetic memo pads from me and her hint to me was "Sugar, oh honey, honey"  and it was this cute little guy filled with Iowa farm-grown honey in the tiniest little honey bear I've ever seen!
Here are your Christmas Tidbits for today..............


What an adorable snowman...............this was $18 on Etsy or you could make it yourself....it doesn't seem too complicated..........
This looks tasty AND festive!  The recipe is here


That's all for today!  I hope you had a good one and I hope it didn't cost you $200! LOL!  Unless you bought something really nice for someone you love or yourself who you should also love.  Have a great and cozy evening!
Happy Trails!!!

  2. Bah Humbug! A battery gone bad is no fun anytime of the year, and most especially at Christmas! The mystery card is a bit of Christmas fun. Surely you will find out who this nice family is. Yikes, tomorrow will be your Blogmas Day #18. I must hurry!

  3. At least your battery died when you were at home. The last time it happened to me, I was at the mall with a friend visiting from Germany with her 5 year old son, and my car wouldn't start after we had a very nice meet-up. Had to get a taxi but then remembered I left my housekeys in the car so we had to go back to the mall, then drop off my friend and her son, then I finally got home. I gave the taxi guy extra money after all that. Thank goodness my husband has a very good friend who is our mechanic. They came and picked me up later that day so we could go to the mall and change the battery. How funny that you would received a holiday card but don't know who it is from. People wouldn't send a holiday photo to just anyone. They must have gotten your address from someone. Hope you figure it out.

  4. That card story is funny, but kind of strange too isn't it? She must know you from somewhere or how else would she have your address? Most people don't send just anyone photos of their kids!
    Sorry about your battery. I know just how you feel. I had a dead battery twice in two weeks and they finally decided the battery had a bad cell and replaced it for free since it was only 1 year old. However they did charge me for the diagnostic which I think was rather unfair when it was their battery!
    That little snowman made from the salt shaker is really cute and should be very easy to make for much less than $18.00, although I do know that they have their Etsy shop to make a profit.
    I hope you have a great Wednesday. One week until Christmas!
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  5. Oooh... I'm so sorry you got hit with a $200 car fix this month. Hopefully, though, it makes you feel more confident about getting through the winter. What a cute little honey bear, and how fun and funny is that to get a card from someone you don't know. You've evidently made some kind of impression on them! And they had to get your mailing address somehow. If you ever figure out how you know them (or they you), please let us know!

  6. I almost bought my Mom a tiny jar of honey like that with local honey it, but got her something else. That is so cute though. Funny about the card.
