Veterans day is coming up and I found this really neat flag case at Michaels this summer. Since we lost my father-in-law last January, I thought this would be a nice gift for my husband to put his Dad's flag and some of his medals, awards, ribbons, etc. And it also has a place for a 4x6 picture! This is such a great display I think, and my husband if very proud of it. It will hang in his office.
This year has gone by so fast, it makes my head spin, and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it!! I always feel a little conflicted about Thanksgiving, as sometimes I feel the need to go ahead and start putting up my Christmas decorations (BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY OF THEM) to get a head start on December which always seems to end up with me thinking that if I just had ONE more week, I would be ready. Do you all do that? I'm going to try and get some things done ahead, cooking, wrapping and such. But then I say that every year!
One more thing, I went to the Goodwill last week and Guess What? It was CLOSED because of mercury contamination indefinitely!! Wow!!. Do you suppose it was one of those new CFL bulbs that got broken? I've heard some bad rumors about Haz-Mat teams being called to clean up after those things. I do not like the light they give off AT ALL!! So, guess who is hoarding light bulbs? I buy them everytime I go to Walmart and I've noticed that the cheaper ones are getting harder to find on the shelf. Four bulbs for $.77 is way cheaper than 4 for $7.50 or more, and from what I've heard they don't last quite as long as they are saying. Oh well, just thought I'd mention it. Let me know what you all think.
Hope you all have a very happy and safe Halloween. I have made Chili and Apple Crisp today, as our kids are coming over to celebrate birthdays.
