I had still been in the Market for another Food Dehydrator since the one I have has been only borrowed. I really don't like to keep something "borrowed" even if they say they never use it anymore. Once someone says, "I never use it but you can borrow it" I am not of the opinion I should have to be asked by them to have it back.
How many times I have "lent" something and not had it returned? Many ! I have even asked for the items to be returned, and still have NOT had them returned ... I have even asked a FEW times with still not having MY item(s) returned. After asking a few times and a few Years later, I have finally given up. You think I would have learned better not to have lent to those same people over and over again, would you not? I think I have finally learned now, especially since the last time I had lent them something, that had been lent to me, just for them to "look at", with even that not ever being returned. Now that had been embarrassing on my part ... thank goodness the "other" person had been more then forgiving.
My Rob says I can't expect other people to be like "me" ... is "common courtesy" not to be expected from someone else, which I try to have for others. Really now ..... oh yes, back to my Yesterday and away from that "tad" of an outburst.
Actually I hadn't made the "actual" purchase, another gal on the Swap who I had never met before, but bought a few items from (my "Crabby Cabbie" had been the pick up guy for those items), had seen I had a "Wanted" post for a dehydrator for some time. She messaged me and told me she had made the purchase on my behalf ..... sweet !!! How nice to have something "Payed Back", as in her message to me she was happy to do a "Pay Forward" as someone else had recently done something nice for her too !!! Happy days are here to know there are still some of us of the same frame of mind when it comes to helping each other out !!!!
I, of course, when picking the dehydrator up from her and meeting her for the very first time, I could not go "empty handed" in light of her kindness.
The next stop was for ....
That had been the remainder of my "amazing" Yesterday. Wow it certainly had been an all around "amazing" day !
Today being Wednesday, it of course was the VON SMART Exercise program in Wiarton this morning. Off I went, really not feeling much like it as my stomach has still been acting up somewhat and my neck pain has been giving me much grief as well lately. I was happy I did go after all, as I do so love all the ladies who attend the program as well as the ones I Volunteer along with. I also get to keep up on a bit of a Social Level of what is going on in and around Wiarton too .... Mark your own Calendars for the following two upcoming events:
I am really happy the Wiarton Church Christmas Bazaar is on the 17th of November, as the following weekend on the 24th of November is the one at my Aunties Tolmie Memorial Presbyterian Church in Port Elgin which I have attended to three years running in a row and would hate to miss out on it this Year ! I was happy to have dropped off 4 Jars of Black Bean & Salsa and 2 Jars of Homemade Bath Salts at my Aunties as my donation to be contributed this Year, the first time I have done so. It feels good to give and help out when able !
Oh yes, before I forget The Patch has their Annual $20.00 FILL A BAG DAY Sale going on over in Sauble Beach right now too. For further information on this just *click* HERE.
I LOVE being involved with my COMMUNITY and surrounding area, as well as being there when I can for my FAMILY and FRIENDS. This is what LIFE is suppose to be all about, is it not? or a great portion of it anyway.
When I had returned home from exercise I was happy there had been leftovers for our Dinner. It couldn't get much easier then that for me. Rob had leftover Kentucky Fried Chicken Uncle and Auntie had sent along home with him, and I had leftover Chili with a Cheese and Leek Scone.
After lunch and the dishes were done up I had a bit of a rest as I have been feeling "tuckered" right out this day. Really it has been a very dreary grey day out there, so this is what I am contributing my "mood" to. Eventually I did get my butt off the couch and in to making up our bed before I "tackled" the kitchen.
Ha ! Good thing for closet and cupboard doors that can be closed, it is not?
Really though with the tomatoes finally done I hope I can now concentrate more on the rest of the house and as my friend, Debby over at Nanny's Place calls it, some DEEP cleaning, along with the 100 Item Challenge I joined in on along with Carla's at My 1/2 Dozen Daily. I know they are both way ahead of me, but that is "okay" I will get done what I can and know there is lots of support out there for me while I am doing it.
I was also excited to learn today that four more of my favourite "crafty" friends are going to be participating in their very first "Craft Show" !!! Anyone over in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), more specifically Milton way, please do drop in on the Craftmates by finding all about it HERE ! Really had we still lived in the Kitchener-Waterloo area it would have been only a hop, skip and a jump for me to go from there. Lots of luck girls ! I can't wait to hear how you all made out !!!
Another exiting tidbit I read about today was my friend Mrs. Thrifty, along with her Hearing Dog, Zena, having had recently met up with Princess Anne. Wow that would have something to be really excited about, especially when it had been said how "nice and lovely" Princess Anne is. Please drop over HERE to find out more about all that excitement.
Ha ! really all this excitement has "tuckered" me out all the more. Spelling or Grammar errors? really I am too tired to worry about any of that at this moment. And "NO" my dear John Gray, I am not on Speed when awake at 3 am, just a little female hormone problem I am thinking; would you care if I shared with you? Hahaha ... xx
I am planning on staying HOME the whole day tomorrow. Please wish me luck this happens for me, as there really is so much to be done here, as always, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
