Yeah, I knew I was being generous on the 50% but after all why kick them when they are already down....and basically out.

Dad wore pajama pants and polo shirts around the house because he was more comfortable that way and I could pick them up at Zellers real cheap. I also got a lot of catering supplies (dishes, decorative pieces) at a good price as well. And it was just nice because they were the only "discount" store left that was Canadian.

Add me to the group. I don't have baking but I have a very cantankerous slipper that doesn't want to be crocheted and is needed for Saturday morning as well as some snowflake washcloths, cleaning, present wrapping, card writing for the family, phone calling and if the slush from the snow will let me out of the house, a ton of errands!

It took me a long time to learn to accept gifts with graciousnes and a smile. A simple thank you and let them know further down the line how you used the gift. Like my wonderful red stool that has saved my hip and spine a lot of pain. I keep it right next to my low countertop that I do most of my work at. Perfect height. And a foot rest to boot. Luv it!

When you first bring it home from the store, you want to put it on the shelf right side up. Don't. Always store it upside down. And when you return it to the shelf after using just some of it, continute to store it upside down. You open the cabiinet door and see it is upside down and you want to right it. Leave it upside down. That way it is always ready for you.

Taking a breather before I get going on the rest of the baking. I also just realized I need to go out and get a little gift for my daughter's boyfriend. *sigh* I hate when I forget stuff.

I suppose I'll go put the snow thrower on the tractor... before it starts raining harder than it already is.
