It's on top of my microwave as it was the only
place I had left for it!
But it is a beautiful basket and I figure it is good
to have reminders of Pascha year round.
I carried my roses on Good Friday for the shroud
and it felt so beautiful to have a basket of roses for
I am blessed as even the roses I got were at a discount
and they were beautiful real long stem red roses
fragrant, stemmed with leaves and ferns...
For my Pascha party I was getting some really heavy items
so I broke down and bought this cart:
Sad to say it did not suffice.
The tips off the top fell off before I got home
the day I bought it!
And it was too short and so was really uncomfortable to push.
I kept thinking about collection development
in libraries; my teacher in library school said
everyone makes a few collection development
mistakes, items - books, DVDs, etc,
that just don't get the use they should.
Well thankfully my super cool grocery store,
where I bought it from,
let me return it that very day and I was refunded
the money I used buying it.
Last week, admittedly when I had felt excited about a real
I got this new red cart:
It cost 23.00 total Canadian
and I had talked to various people using them downtown
who recommended them.
So far, I am loving it!
Great handle height, good wheels (the other carts wheels
were so wobbly that it was actually hard to use),
and it's red! :)
Here's to hoping that I get another job soon
so I can not worry about 'extra' purchases like this one...
another Cleo picture.
My friend said Cleo looked older and I fear
it is true.
Though I can't always see it, I think somehow she is not always as
fluffy as she was around the face.
She still acts the same, which is great.
Including sudden appearances at the dinner table when I put my
dinner down to eat and turn around to get a glass of water...
so here she is, the famous meal sniffer/stealer
