As with most Thursdays I’m linking up with Jennifer at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom.
Today I’m frustrated with Beyond the Rack. Â I ordered some towels for the house on September 27th and they have been stuck in a “processing” mode for a month and a half. Â Then I ordered new canisters for my kitchen because well the ones I have are over 20 year old plastic Tupperware that are scratched and well probably not BPA free. Â So after spending almost an hour on the phone, the towels are in Canada at the warehouse in Montreal with the quality control people. Â The canisters are in Canada but apparently enroute from customs to the warehouse in Montreal. Â So they were shipped to BTR but not to me. Â They’ve added a $10 credit for my trouble. Â I didn’t have it in me to argue about the cheap “for your trouble” credit that they added. Â Seriously, September……I ordered and still waiting. Â I ordered the towels in the first place because well I think the Kidlets EAT the towels. Â We all use the bath sheets. Â I have eight of the blue ones already, two navy, two green. Â I think only six towels can be located at any given time. Â These are the house towels and not the trailers. Â
Can I just say it’s NOVEMBER and I’m going to be wearing sandals again today! Â Seriously its been beautiful here. I’m not complaining. Â Just last night my girlie asked me about my Hunter boots and asked why I haven’t worn them. Â Well it’s not been cold and rainy. Â It was, but I was in bed all those days. So I’m going to dig my hammock out for one last day and I’m sure these two will join me in it but I’ll read the book that came yesterday and enjoy this wonderful weather.
My featured image today is a photo I took yesterday. Â I bought myself some flowers. Â You’ll notice that I usually have carnations, they’re not my favorite but they smell nice and last so long and I always get some white ones and they had the pretty purple too. Â I put my print that I received from The Bloom Workshop into a frame. Â Here’s to the creative ones, yep that me now! Â Oh I think I am anyways. Â
I’m doing well and eating well with the 21 day fix. As a result the rest of the family is eating well too. Â My hubby and daughter are still in bed so I haven’t had my shake yet. Â Today I’m going with the chocolate, a banana and some peanut butter or PB2 with coconut milk and ice. Â So they will be waking soon!
So I’ve been doing these secret Santa’s with my girlfriends since last Christmas. Â We have also done one for Valentine’s Day, Spring/Cinco de Mayo, Halloween/Fall and now Secret Santa. Â I’m still waiting for my Fall/Halloween one but my secret elf has something special for me so it will get here. Â I really can’t wait to shop for my new secret Santa person. Â I have fun finding things just for them!. Â My lesson learned is don’t use Amazon to ship directly, they spoil the surprise….
After hammock time, I’ll be making labels for my new spice bottles while I wait for the chalkboard labels to come in. Â
So are you having good weather? Â Have you done something fun like a Secret Santa? Â Reddit has their Secret Santa opened.
