I went to Half price Books yesterday and bought a knit pattern book. I'm going to make this Vested Interest Vest for myself. It is going to take me a very long time to knit it.
I'll only give occasional updates.
Biggy yarn and needles hurt my arms and hands, therefore I can only knit a bit of this at a time.
The pattern is ridiculously simple so I can leave it and return to it easily.
(Beatles is not interested in going out today, even if it is 20 degrees)
I liked Half Price Books.
*I love my vacuum. I have an Electrolux Ergo 18 volt cordless vacuum. We have next to no carpet in our home. Just some throw rugs and bare wood floors.
I will never go back to a corded vacuum again.
You can imagine why-
*I am happy with our Sears Eliptical purchase of a year ago.
Zach and I use the machine in very different settings.
I force myself to go on it almost daily now that work is slow.
We paid about 800 dollars for it.
It is most definitely worth 3 dollars a day for the first year and free thereafter.
*My Sony Cibershot camera for 50 bucks on clearance from Target ( awhile back) surely suffices. It isn't fancy.
I notice a distinct difference in my images, but I'm too frugal to buy anything else now. Funny how I can't damage the cheap one but the expensive cameras jumped out of my hands to their death within months of purchase.
*My cats love their water fountain.
It is made by FreshFlow. I think I bought it from Drs Foster and Smith.
*I had a concern about Purina cat food recently and contacted them by email. They got back to me the next day.
They sent me a 45 dollar coupon for my inquiry.
We have fed Purina to our animals for 31 years.
I have had veterinarians, family vets and dog trainers all tell me that their products are thoroughly researched and hard to beat.
I'm sure some of you disagree, but I do like their customer service and our pets have a track record of longevity and health.
*Fireman bought me an Isprout watch that arrived broken at Christmas. I am still trying to get a new watch from them.
Yesterday, I called Discover as it was purchased on that card, and they are intercepting.
I am happy with the USPS. I don't think I've ever had a lost package in recent years. Our mailman works in these frigid temps and I'm amazed.
Are you particularly happy with any products these days??
