It's gorgeous weather and I am happy! I just received a huge box of goodies from Lands'End - there's nothing like online shopping to put some cheer in the day.
Before you go thinking there's old money bags buying stuff again look where I got everything from: Overstocks. It says save up to 65%. Since I am not fussed about having the latest designs it's perfect for me.
The most expensive thing I ordered was a pair of gaucho jeans at $34.50 and I splurged on a washable linen dress $29.99. Everything else was less than $20.00 actually less than $15.
Normally I feel depressed as we head into summer - nothing to wear, nothing fits, I've put on weight over winter, etc, etc. This summer I am good to go. I simply don't have time to cry each morning as I gaze on my awful selection of clothes.
In other good news, my old sewing machine has come home. It wasn't too expensive to repair and it's been delivered right by to the door by my hunky courier guy (I think it's well known amongst the Japan gals that KuroNeko hires the hunks).
On Monday the postcards for the Chatty Cafe arrived. They look great. I showed them to my friend and my husband. They both agreed it seems a great idea and that the cards look very professional. My husband was impressed by my design skills but VistaPrint gives you a lot of help with templates. I'll only need to host one Cafe morning to pay for the postcards so it was worth doing.
Lastly, I am happy to report I have finally taken Sherry's advice and joined Co-op for grocery delivery. She recommended another place but I've decided that Co-op looks good. They are coming this afternoon to pick up the forms. I hope it's not too complicated as I will have to manage in Japanese.
It's a half day at kindergarten today. My friend has put her daughter into the after-school class today but I couldn't as I had no weiners. What are weiners, you might ask? That's what Japanese people call small cocktail sausages. The word makes me laugh and I prefer not to use it. Anyway we all had a laugh over "No weiners, no bento lunch". They both agreed that weiners are pretty much the staple in the kids lunches. I'm not the only one who is disorganized with groceries (not for much longer though).
On that note, I hear the washing machine beeping, it's finished the load.
