I have three kinds of lists. I write everyday lists; errands, groceries, chores, etc. I write lists to keep track; things I've knit, DVD's, etc. Mostly though, I write what I think of as "long term lists". These lists involve things I would like, to acquire, do, or create long term. They are, by nature, everchanging. Times change, needs change. An example, five things I'd like to knit this year. Another example, household items I would like to acquire. This week, I made a purchase that allowed me to cross an item off of this particular list, an item that had been on the list for quite some time. For some, this item might be considered a little useless, though I believe I will use it frequently. Why haven't I purchased it before now? All of the ones I had found were a teeny bit pricier than I could justify, or when I could justify it, I wasn't in the mood to lug it home (the item is relatively small, but quite heavy).
Earlier this week, I went in search of Peeps, they were an Easter
I brought home my wonderful new item and immediately made a place for it to live in my kitchen, a place where it could be seen and used, but not in the way, and if you knew my kitchen, you'd know that finding such a spot is so not easy. I'm a happy girl. I even have pictures.
Isn't it beautiful? I love it! Oh, and did I mention that it was less than a third of the price of the others I have seen in the past. On a side note there was another purchase made at Winner's that day. It is a gift for a friend, a foodie, crafty friend. I hope that they are able to put it to good use, enjoy having it as much as I enjoyed choosing it for them, and selfishly, I hope they remember me whenever they use it.
A little hint, just in case they're reading.
