289.  Finding a quote for this week's post that made me smile.......how appropriate for me ; )

290.  Leftovers for dinner.....I never have understood people who don't eat leftovers ~ I often double a recipe for the sole purpose of having a night off in the future!!

291.  5 bags of old college textbooks (and a few other things) taken to Goodwill, .....

292. ....the husband who finally relinquished them after years of effort on my part ; )......

293. ....and how beautiful my bookshelves now look because they've been jam-packed with stuff shoved every-which-way-it-will-fit.....clutter-busting is a very beautiful thing  indeed!

294. Dinner with ♥sweet♥ friends


295.  a dresser found at Goodwill for $14.99 !!  to replace a very sad-looking one for my youngest son,....

296. .....several clothing items for my kids (Gap, Old Navy, etc.) at $2, $3, $4 each,....

297.  .....a new set of Pfalzgraff everyday dishes at half the price of another set I've been looking at.....oh, so pretty!....,

298.  .....and, a new set of glassware (we had an unexpected thrift/bargain store shopping experience yesterday.....after my complaining this weekend  that all my  friends find the best treasures while thrift store shopping & I never do).....

299.  God's sense of humor =)

300.  the strangers who helped my 11-yr. old and me get #294 into our vehicle....

301.  .....and the neighbor who helped us get it inside the house

302.  a bathroom light that finally works the way it's supposed to thanks to my.....

303.  Mr. Fix-It ♥

304.  my SIL, who is back in the same city for good after a year in Ohio

305.  perspective {gratitude, thankfulness, happiness, being content where God has you.....it's all about having the right one, ya know}

306.  coffee, without which this post might not be coherent ; ) {I'm having a hard time waking up today!}


Mustard Seed Planting today.....and although riches would be nice, I'm reminded in Proverbs ~

"Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven."
Prov. 23:4-5

Excellent list, sweet bloggy friend! Can't wait to see snaps of all your thrifty finds. Isn't it the best feeling to clean out and send it to Goodwill? ☺ I have a box that is accumulating from every room. Happy Wednesday! ☺

The only thing that would make this post better...would be to sit with you,drinking coffee laughing over the little things...and God's humor!!
Received the blanket...it is PRECIOUS!

It took me a long time, but I think I finally figured out the best day to go for my stores. Or, it could have been a once-in-a-lifetime thing....we'll see. =)
So glad the blanket made it to you, Rebecca!
