What I Buy Wednesday!

Well, we've been having printer problems---again! Mine hasn't worked in months. I kept getting the message that I needed to take it in for servicing. You might recall, I only paid about $10 for that printer with a clearance sale and my reward certificate. So, it definitely wasn't worth spending money getting it fixed. Printers are cheap.

Sooo, I've been using Butch's printer for months. All of a sudden, his printer quit working. I tried to troubleshoot it. Finally, I, too got a message that it needed more help than I could provide. It said that the print basket was full and needed emptying (or something like that). I gave up.

Butch got the Staples ad from the Sunday paper. I was going to get us both new printers. Before I even left the house, Butch said he got his going. That meant I only needed to buy one for myself.
I did. And then, the shocker---the ink cost more than the printer. There's just something wrong with that.

I set up the printer yesterday. When I opened the closet to get the box for the old printer---to take back to Staples (they recycle for you), I discovered another printer! What??? Honestly, I don't really have any recollection about it. I'm thinking either Sandy or Stephanie gave it to me when they moved. and I just forgot. I told Butch about it.

Hopefully, we'll remember we have a spare the next time we need one.

Other than that, the only thing I've been buying this week is groceries, groceries and more groceries. I'm averaging three times a week now---and I hate grocery shopping! I cannot keep enough food in the house for our boarder!!

Monday Mystery

What is the best way to peel potatoes for potato salad? 
 Score your potatoes before you boil them.
 When they are cooked, you can see that the peels are starting to fall off.
And they do! So easy!

Mystery solved!

It's Finished!!

I just got it back from the framers.

This was so much fun to stitch. When it comes to beading (that tree), you either love it or you hate it. Luckily for me, I happen to like it, but it is really time consuming. Since finishing this one, I've already taken the "pumpkin topiary" to the framers. Of course I'll be sharing that when I pick it up.
And this is what I just started. I love fun Halloween projects.
