6th of December

Grateful for a cup of good coffee.

The back story is we had to fast this morning to get the labs done for the insurance. Okay, I can do this but we get to the lab at 8:25 and supposedly we needed some sort of paperwork that B did not download.   So, I was not a happy fasting camper. But a quick stop to Starbucks and all was right with the world. But we’ll have to do it later anyway.

Then we went to the bank to use the coin machine. This is a sealed pot challenge originally started by the blogger’s new life in the country.  

We ended up with $88.78. Pretty good for a year. we still haven’t decided what we will use it on. Maybe part of our travel money.

I’m doing the minimalist game this month. So day 1 is 1 thing, day 2 is 2 things, etc. Not sure I can come up with that amount but I started with the Christmas ornaments I don’t want.  Plus I do need to go thru some old files so that will add some items.

Dinner is a roast chicken and farmers market chard, I’ll saute it with some garlic.

Here’s another amazing picture by my lovely daughter.

An IKEA trip

Fun!

We went to Ikea to get a new cover for the one Poang chair we have. We decided to declutter the 2 mission style chairs and get another Poang. They are made of a birch wood so much lighter and they are a smaller footprint.

Free coffee!

If you get their family card, you can get their free coffee with organic half and half. We had a cup but no breakfast as we had already eaten at home.

Hygge candles!

If you’re like me I burn candles year round and Ikea candles smell good and are inexpensive and don’t have nasty stuff in them.  The orange is my favorite.

So for now, the pile for my son’s yard sale is growing with 2 Mission style chairs added.

I’m making enchiladas in the Lodge tonight for Taco Tuesday.
