I picked up my girlfriend Nancy and took her with me. I got to get another box from her attic. The bird I got at the thrift but the other neat stuff were treasures from her attic. The one dish has a stamp of Byron-Molds 1978. Then carved in it is the name Dolly. My neighbor is Dolly so I plan on making banana bread and taking it over to her on that dish. It really is cute. I got a bedspread but it's in the wash. I'm taking my Christmas one off until next year, but I am leaving the electric mattress
pad on for a few more months. Now I have to get off this computer and do some housework.Yuck!

Such a nice busy day. Woke up with Giovanni, fed him breakfast then took him home to his mom's who needs to wake up eariler. Then off to gram's. Did her laundry, bedding,meals then my favorite part of the day. The thrift store with Nancy. It doesn't get much better(unless I'm raiding her attic) On the right I got 2 new aprons for .99cents each. A beautiful pitcher and a hurricane lamp. I plan on that going to the patio when it's warmer. I am keeping one of the aprons but I'm giving my girlfriend Kathy one for Christmas.(we get one gift for each month and then write a note on what we did that month..I'll even tell her I only spent .99cents and she will love it. Then when we buy our last gift in Dec. we mail all 12 gifts to each other) This started 25 years ago with my friend Diane who felt sorry for me because I only got socks & undies for Christmas. She said she would never let me have another Christmas like that again. So we started buying or making a gift a month writing and wrapping the gift every month. Diane lives only 30 miles away so we will get together and exchange our gifts then. Her DH says I get more gifts then he does. With my friend Kathy who lives in Idaho I will mail her gift. Boy, do I get side tracked. When I left the Thrift I new my day would be the same old day. Laundry, dinner, cleaning ect. But I wanted to get my blog done before DH comes home. Life is good. I hope you have a Sunny day!!!!!!!!!!

Nancy Jo don't look. These are a few items Nancy Jo had packed away in her attic and she felt the need to clean her attic out. She has a beautiful clean attic but as a friend I said no problem I can help, I love the 4 plates with handles, perfect for pasta. The 4 ingredient cookbook will be put to use this afternoon as will the cookie jar. I love the handmade bags that she has embroidered, The little red golbet will be used to hold the Box Tops for education that I cut off from the boxs and cans that have them on. There were more items that will be given to my nephew and his wife as they can use everything and are appreciated of any item given to them. Everyone in my family loves to recieve a box especially if they know there's items from Nancy. I am so lucky to have her as a friend. She is a beautiful friend to have, and so talented also.
It's spring, at least it is in my kitchen, I can't wait for them to pop up in my gardens, if the critters left them alone over the summer.
It is nice outside today I have my grandson today and I think we will walk up to get the newspaper. It's a slow but steady hill to climb but then the walk back is easier. It showes me I need to start working out more.
