Goodwill and the Dollar Tree...

Craig has been wanting to take me shopping and to lunch...
so we took off for town today...
a different town than the usual Paris...
they have a new Goodwill store and its right next door to the Dollar Tree...
and I found a couple of pillows...

this one is zippered and the pillow inside is stuffed with feathers...

they look good together...

and I found a dust ruffle, because I like the material...
it will become something else soon...
all on sale today...
49 cents each for the pillows and $1.19 for the bed ruffle...

and I found 3 tops, long sleeve for fall and a sweater...
the tops were half off...
$1.74 each...
this is pale pink...

my favorite yellow color...

and a navy blue...

this also came with a short sleeve shell sweater that matched it...
it was full price...
$3.49...
I did good...
;0)

and this is what I found at the Dollar Tree...
puppy pads for Charlie...
a clothes line, because I am always using rope on things in the garden...
a pair of kitchen scissors for DH to take to work...
he needs them to cut the thread on the sewing machine...
it sews the top of the bags closed...
and a couple romance novels...
the one is set in Paris in the 1800s...
sounds promising...

we stopped at walmart...
but you know what Downy, dog food and paper towels look like...
so I didn't take a photo of that...
;0)
I got so sick while we were in town, that I opted out of Taco Bell and did a hamburger happy meal instead...
Craig grabbed KFC on the way out of town...
and there is a complaint coming here...
he got a 3 piece chicken tender dinner...
what a ripoff!
the pieces were smaller than a chicken nugget!
almost $6 for 3 bites of chicken...
and they wonder why their parking lot is empty most of the time anymore...
der...

we had a good time, but as the day went on...
the sicker I got...
not sure what is going on, but its not fun...
I had this a couple of weeks ago...
there is a bug that has been going around...
but surely I wouldn't have gotten it twice!

home alone the next couple of days...
it will give me time to get better!
have a good evening and a great day tomorrow...
;)

Hope you get to feeling better Tete,! I love our Goodwill Store in Carthage and it is right next door to our dollar store. I have gotten several nice things there. Enjoy some alone time and get some rest.

when ever anyone speaks of having a "bug" which upsets their tummy, i think of some sort of food poisoning.

it's summer. there are just so many ways, that food can be compromised. and if you have eaten "take out", how so you know who make it, or how careful they were?

i know. no one likes to consider this. but ... just saying... "bugs" can be something, simpler than "bugs".

I love the pillows, Goodwill is one of my favorite places, sometimes things are there, and other times, nothing, but then that is the way it goes.

Tete, I hope you are feeling better this evening. I hate when you get sick. You are such a good person. I like the deals you got. But that pitiful little meal from kfc...they should be ashamed but we know they are not. I hope he got more at home to go with that...that was a snack. :):) Blessings to all of you. xoxo,Susie

sounds like the GW prices at home are more reasonable. Have you been to the new Charleston GW, guess I need to go. Now keep a eye out for me for Pyrex!
So a novel set in Paris? not IL I take it? LOL
