So, I actually took the photos for the Present for Myself (did you do it yet, Lara and Aileen?). I dutifully uploaded them to Shutterfly to be picked up at my nearest Target. However, even though I got the confirmation email that they were processed, when I drove TWENTY minutes to the store late Saturday evening, ALAS - they never got the order. I was not happy. So, I will call them tomorrow and deal with it. I did receive a fascinating email from a customer service lady in some other country who used very interesting English phrases to comfort me, such as,
"For Target orders you are charged for the products only at store pick up. You can go ahead and process a fresh order to the same store or to another store in the locality. If your original order did arrive belatedly, the store will have it on hold for a few days and then dispose it carefully".
Ahh, I love America.
So, here are a few of the things in my current life!!
Here are my Fall decorations......
Missing my missionary....
Missing my 16 year old....
Learning to make a quilt for said 16 year old....(that is a post for another day... I had to tear out most of what I had done....sigh)
Beautiful rose blossoms from the 16 year old's rose bush......in October!
One of my new best friends....my BIG cutting and measuring mat! I have left it on my dining room table for a while since we don't use that room much. OH my gosh - it makes everything so much easier with sewing and cutting (hmmmm...... had I used it properly, perhaps I wouldn't be re-doing so much on my FIRST quilt!!)
Another new best friend ---this cleanser is wonderful ( I do not have a bar...).
NOT such a best friend, but I am using this every day now!! Woo hoo! Watch out all you marathon runners! Ha.
My latest food storage purchases --- obsessing over the economy, buying more food storage. I love Aldi's.
My kitty getting in the way of my photo of my XM radio. I listen to it a LOT (the radio, not the cat). Or, I did - I have given up talk radio for a while. I was getting too obsessed and disheartened over everything going on...
Ok, but still obsessing over the elections stuff.
NOT depressed over this.... I love my amazing hubby and my beautiful Japanese Maple tree!
