I have had a thrilling day. And for once I'm being serious! However, you'll have to wait a little bit before I share my news! Or you could guess...hahaha...Here's a hint - I spent many many hours on my lovely laptop today :) That's it, that's all you get.
Oh, something I will share is the amazing deal I made yesterday on www.shop.ca! Not sure if there is an equivalent shop.com in the U.S.?? Anyhoo I ordered my dining room area rug a few months ago from shop.ca and was impressed with their service. It arrived 2 days after I ordered it! Their prices are reasonable, their selection HUGE and there are always lots of things on sale. The gorgeous rug I purchased was only $120 (6'x8') and delivery is free anywhere in Canada. I see that coming in very handy in P.E.I.
On to my deals...I noticed a few days ago that shop.ca has partnered with aeroplan and until May 16 they are offering 15 aeroplan miles for every dollar spent! So I decided this was a good time to order a few things I've had my eye on so I did, I went for it! Carla - I'm finally buying that Vitamix I've always wanted! And also a picnic table that folds up into a suitcase (a large-ish suitcase), an inside grill for those frequent windy PEI days, a few more kitchen items, some solar lights for on top of posts, and a water pic. (been wanting one of those for a long time!)
AND I am now the proud owner of enough aeroplan miles to fly home from Charlottetown, PEI!! Pretty good deal eh? And I'm not even finished yet! I used my President's Choice master card and thus earned another big bunch of points I can use for free groceries!! She shoots...she SCORES!
Did lots of cooking today - made a yummy smelling cauliflower soup and did lots of juicing. I have some cooked shrimp for salads and some chicken defrosting. I'll bake that tomorrow. And I got my laundry all caught up - just need to put the sheets back on my bed. I'm still sticking with the flannel - it's just not warm enough to make the switch to cotton yet. But warm weather is in the forecast for the coming week so the bike will get some action! Tomorrow the day starts at a chilly 2c so I may wait til Tuesday to ride my book to school. YAY!!
On to the pile of stuff I brought home from school. Now that everyone knows I'm retiring the cleanup has revved into high gear. I've made some serious inroads but have a long ways to go still. I'm surprised (though I shouldn't be) of how much stuff I've brought in from home over the years...I tell ya, teaching is not a job...it's a lifestyle!
That's all she wrote today folks! I'm off to exercise and have some soup. And a little old Tiskybella is telling me she's hungry too! Happy Sunday! (Why do the weekends go so quickly???)
