Wow. They aren't going to sell many machines if people think they have to pay those prices.

Well, it's a fancy schmancy mall. The one "benefit" is they have a good selection and you can mix and match different individual coffees to make a dozen. Good if you want to try some new coffees without committing to buy 12 or 18 of one flavor.

I am sitting here ignoring the voice I hear calling me to the kitchen. It is the floor. It wants to feel the broom and hot mop. Sitting here at the computer is more fun.

Whoa! I've spent most of today gauging how to bake the quantity of French bread necessary for my friend's fundraiser. Been a challenge but I think I've gotten a handle on it.

The rest of today has been occupied with assorted chores and odd tasks.

One of my projects today was to create a gift for one of our granddaughters who will be 10 in December.

A number of months ago I came across the cutest little flower arrangement pot(?)/container. Looks like a cupcake.

Well, I immediately thought of our sweet little girl. So I got busy with my hot glue gun and some flower "parts" and created some nail polish "flowers."

So...

She'll have her birthday soon and she's into "girlie" stuff. I thought we'd give her a nail polish "bouquet." What do you think?

That is adorable! She will love it!

I made something similar for Shrek, only it had tape measures instead of nail polish.

Don't beat yourself up, SB! You were good all week, nothing wrong with a treat, and 5 Guys is a sometimes meal! Back on the wagon tomorrow.

5 Guys is for a good burger and fries...not a diet meal. Mmmm...I need me some 5 Guys, may lift my spirits. It's absolutely for Mental Wellness that 5 Guys is worth a visit.
