Thrift storing Day


I lucked up today. The first place Jane and I walked into this rapid washer was the first thing I saw. I wanted to get one so I wouldn't have to use the scrub board but to order a new one was too expensive. You use it like a plunger but it has a piece in the middle that water is pushed up and out the little rivets at the top of the metal. It works like the agitator on a washing machine. I also found some shirts I can wear to work in outdoors that will be cooler than what I have been wearing. Found a few books and a purse. All in all I didn't spend but a few dollars till we stopped at the produce stand. There I bought 2 cantaloupes, blueberries, bananas, pears, apples, squash, green beans, new potatoes and corn. These will keep me going till my gardens start producing. All I am getting is lettuce, onions and tomatoes right now .... but soon I will be covered up with my own produce. Hope each of you have had a blessed day. We had a nice steady rain all night and part of the day so everything is looking so fresh and pretty. Time to set down with a glass of tea and count my blessings while I watch the birds.

I love seeing what new gadget you have this week.... it amazes me how I take so many 'modern' ideas for granted. I won't tell you how much my last power bill was...oh dear. Miss Peggy, do you know much about preserving vegetables???? specifically capsicums or peppers???? many hugs to you xox

I was looking at the Lehman's catalog the other day and noticed the rapid washer, and I thought of you and the scrub board. And now you've got yourself one.... uncanny!

If you find another one, will you get it for me please?
