So my hubby and I have actually spent some money (that's more surprising for me actually)and made some new purchases.
Today I had to go buy my contact cleaner and some other toiletries so I decided to treat my self to a couple of things:
I bought some Ghirardelli Squares with Carmelized Almonds (my favorite "grown up" candy), the Scarf Style book, Garth Brooks Lost Sessions CD (Garth is my all-time favorite artist), the spring issue of Interweave Knits, and finally the Yarn Harlot's second book. A pretty good haul for someone who usually doesn't spend money on herself.
Yesterday hubby came home all excited about a new tv stand he found at the Salvation Army store (yes Amby the one at Auburn and John R). He didn't think I could lift our heavy ass tv but I proved him wrong. Here is a picture of the new set up - of course with NCAA basketball on the tv.
I like it. The shelf with our components next to the tv is black and the old stand was also black so this lightens up the room a bit. Don't let that tv fool you it is very heavy - I could barely lift my side up to move it the 6 inches from the old stand to the new one.
I have been working on the blanket but it does not really look any different. I am not putting a picture up - just imagine it a little longer and wider from the last time. I really want to get it done so I can start to learn how to knit socks. I think the bug has rubbed off on me finally. Until next time ....
