Finally, a break from the arctic temperatures! It's going to hit a balmy minus 3 (celsius) today! As my mother pointed out a week or so back, it's a poor show when it has to warm up so you can go out and make a snowman! But I'll be taking advantage and getting myself some much-needed fresh air this afternoon!

Things are a little random here today. I have some thrifty finds to share with you in the near future, when I can get some pictures together. And tomorrow we hit the halfway point on the Captain's course. We're almost done!

I'm debating what to do for Valentine's Day this year. Usually, if the Captain is away for a gift-giving holiday (not that we've ever put that much importance on the Hallmark Holidays), I'd buy myself a little cheap-and-cheerful trinket. At present, we've been trying to tighten the belt, so it seems a bit wasteful. And since I'm trying to literally tighten my own belt as well, making cupcakes or chocolates seems like a depressive episode waiting to happen! I'm thinking whatever I do, it should revolve somehow around the kids. After all, who do I love more than them?!

So that's why I haven't been around for a few days. There have been no car chases, no explosions and no titillating scandals to share whatsoever! But stay tuned for my thrifting news. I'd take a good thrift find over a scandal any day of the week!

Happy Friday, blog pals!

Can't wait to see your thrifty finds.

Linda said...

I'm looking forward to the thrifty finds as well!


Happy Friday girl! Sorry it's still so cold there. We are looking forward to 60's next week with lots of sunshine. It really makes you think Spring, but don't be will get cold here again and there is always the possibility of a snowstorm in April!

Would you believe it's supposed to be in the low 60s here next week? Today was the coldest day of the year, too...8 degrees this morning. Weird weather!

Looking forward to the thrift news, and not minding that there are no explosions or scandals!
