so of course I am hibernating. The older I get the worse I feel in this weather. My poor head has been pounding so fingers crossed it will break and rain soon just to clear the air.
I picked up a parcel from the Post Office on Tuesday. I had ordered some books from Book Outlet They had emailed me a $10 off code when you spend $30 so I thought I'd take advantage of it. I ended up getting these books for a tiny bit over $30 and that included tax and shipping. It is cheaper to buy a book than a magazine and I know I can get $1.50 at the used book store for them when I have done reading them. Have you read any of these books? I have started on Knit, Purl, Die by Anne Canadeo. I love reading books that involve knitting despite the fact I can't knit for toffee.
This is the two girls' toy basket. Our little Princess also knows where to go to get books on the shelf as she loves to be read too. Our little Munchkin isn't really into it yet. I have to read more to her as she does have a lot of books at home.
Do you like the colour of our hardwood floor? Gosh it is a pain to keep clean and marks so easily. I make everyone take off their shoes when they come in the house; which actually is something that is typically done anyway in Canada. However I can't afford to have folk walk in the house with dirty shoes that may scratch the floor. I brush and dry swiffer it nearly everyday. The marble border to the left of the border is part of the fireplace.
Oh, and finally we got our first gas bill for the house. It was around $85 and that included $25 new account admin fee, that we had no choice but the pay. We only use the gas to heat the water during the summer. As we don't have a bill to compare it with, is that pretty normal usage or is yours higher or lower? Remember without the fee it would have only been $60.
