After breakfast we hopped in the truck and went down to LaVale for the day. It was snowing when we left but as we got farther away from home, the snow stopped and the sun came out. Went to the mall first and walked around in and out of stores. There is a Walmart there in the mall and it is a much bigger store than the one we usually go to. We picked up a few food items that we couldn't get at ours.
I needed a battery for my watch but couldn't find one. It was just a cheap Walmart watch but I really like it. I saw the exact same watch today and just bought another watch. It was only $12. I also picked up some pink wool. I thought I'd try to knit myself a sweater with it.
In another store we bought two more puzzles. Don't know when we will get to them though because that big 3000 puzzle is going mighty slow.
A light blue blouse caught my eye in a store and I got that too.
The purple cross cookie cutter I got in a craft store that was right next to a Joann's Fabric store. I am going to bake cookies for the kids for their snack at Sunday school and thought that cross cookies would be nice for that.
We also went to Ollie's, Harbor Freight, Martin's and had lunch at a Wendy's. I love the baked potato with cheese.
On the way home we made a stop at Candy Land again. Ken needed a new supply.
We had a lovely day out and didn't get back home till about 3:30. Here's my loot for the day.
For supper this evening I made Shepherds Pie - a recipe I got out of my Better Homes and Garden cookbook. It was the first time I've made it and it was pretty good. Not spectacular but a good hearty meal. The recipe is HERE.
Hope your day has been a happy one.

How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.

Today's Three Thankful Things
- Emails from friends
- Enjoying a nice day out
- Having a husband who is not a picky eater. He'll eat whatever I make without complaint.
Thinker - Don't think you can make scones in a microwave. : )
RK - The locals say that they usually get this much snow, just not such cold temperatures. I think the average snowfall for a winter is 102 inches. It is the coldest winter here in 20 years.
