Somebody is watching out for me!


Remember when I started making the Gravlax and needed a heavy object to make sure it stayed pressed down, I first used a rock but it was too tall and I had to use something else!..Cecil kept promising me a brick but that never happened :o I've been nibbling away at my Gravlax and soon, very soon I'll need to start the process all over again..So again I was prompted to visit Goodwill (I love (shopping) shifting through stuff and finding a treasure from someones junk :o)....and lo and behold...there was this block of wood...don't know what it was used for..but it was exactly what I needed that would fit the dish I use for makingthe Gravlax with enough weight to press it down :o)...I paid only a dollar for it...what a bargain for such a treasure :o)....I'm smiling all the way home for a block of wood, a small thing that makes me happy :o)...

Ginny, I'm always glad to hear that something made you happy because I think you have such a pretty smile. That was a lucky find--just what you needed! :-)

I, too, love Goodwill! Isn't it amazing how exactly what you're looking for appears there? Unfortunately I'm not always smart enough to realize it and buy it right away. When I go back someone else found it was just right for them. :0/ I'm glad you found your block of wood.

It was a lucky find...makes one feel all warm and fuzzy all over.
Not like the one I'm feeling today, the computer is really bombing..it needs some memory and it's a bigger job to install than I would be able to handle right now
I hate going into debt for another,
Interest rates are ridiculous.

When Cecil and I first married we didn't have anything and I found what we used to call "Cheap Johns", or "Second Hand Stores" had household items we needed for less than nothing...That's where I learned the art of "Antiquing" :o)
Got pretty good at it too...Ginny
