Happy Monkey Year To All.
I did not have a bridal shower when Mr Man & I got married, which did /does not bother me but I would like a shower now - replenishing & renewing the linens is expensive. Over the last year I have picked up a couple sets of new towels when on sale & a set of bedding sheets when a pattern or colour I like are on sale. This weekend I bought some new sheets through Costco, as the pattern really caught my eye. It's a queen set, in a pretty floral pattern, Mr Man made a face when I put into the basket - "those?" Yes I want some pretty while I'm sleeping.
The next new item I purchased in economy stimulus was a new pan. The one this is replacing has been in active service for at least 4 years, plus it was not a quality pan. I have not found many deep pans, which I need for 2 specific dinners I make. The bonus on this new pan is that it has a lid. Such an item makes me very happy & now in the weekly meal plans, my family recipe of Goulash is on the menu, oh the yummyness requires a deep pan. Also new, I am for this recipe, replacing the traditional pasta with quinoa. Of late I am trying to health up old recipes - a challenge for sure.
My third new purchase is going to be returned. When I was purchasing I asked several times & explained my needs several times to the sales person what I wanted, to be heartily reassured "oh yes, exactly". Once home & un-bundled, it is NOT exactly want I want. In the News (again) last week, is the warning that many of the health trackers, not only track your steps, heartbeat & calories burned, it tracks a whole lot of other things about you, plus when the info is connected to your phone or computer, the information on your devices is track-able as in hack-able. The makers of many of these tracking devices freely admit that their software is & has been hacked. No thank you, there is enough risk out there as it is. So this purchase gets returned later today (Monday). Back to the WW broken pedometer.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead of then.
