The cold front was a dud
. Yesterday we had a high of 77
and a low of 67
degrees. Today we had a high of 90
a low of 71
with a heat index of 95 degrees
I never turned the A/C
off I just set it on 80
degrees...when I heard it turn on this afternoon...I knew we were back to our summer temperatures
. I was going to drive into town but changed my mind and decided to do laundry
instead after finally tightening up the clothesline
If you look online
it will tell you that Val Verde County
got some rain showers
both yesterday and today but they mainly fell in the northwestern
part of the County out by the lake
The last time I went to Dollar Tree
they gave me a coupon for 10% off
if I bought more than $10.00
worth of merchandise on Sunday, October 13th...they called it Associates Appreciation Day
. Being a dollar store that means any item in their store cost .90 cents
after the discount. While not a lot it saved me $1.50
and when you are on a budget
every penny counts.
I had considered buying these Egglettes
after seeing them on "As seen on TV
" last year but I did not like the price. You may ask yourself...why would you want these Belinda? Unless you are new to my blog you know that cooking
does not come easy for me.
Whenever I go camping one of my go-to items is hard-boiled eggs
but when you remove the shell
and it keeps on stinking unless you immediately put them in the trash
. That is easier said than done when you are partying all day
in the desert
and you don't want to have to walk all the way to the trash dumpsters
. Did I mention there are rats, snakes, and coyotes
So what was my surprise but to find them at the bargain price of .90 cents
...I could not pass it up! So if you are considering going camping today
or in the future
head to Dollar Tree
before they are all gone.
is coming along. When I got there this afternoon they were putting up the sign.
When I left they had the sign up. Yeah, progress! I really need some tarps
and I do not have the time or desire to drive to San Antonio
or to pay extra for shipping and handling
to have them mail to me.
I had high hopes for an afternoon shower but if they fell
it was in the northwestern
part of the county
Headed to DD's
to see what I could score...it was my lucky day...I found a Baggallini purse
for the incredible price of $4.99
. It will make a great camping purse
when I head to the band stage
, small and lightweight.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
