I started off my day by loading all of my recycling in to my truck. I try to recycle as much as I can because I can drop it off for free and it reduces the amount of trash I have to pay to dump...and of course, it's a good thing to do. I wait until I have a lot before I drive in to town, usually 3-4 months worth. The neighbor's dog was helping me out. This dog lives with the crazy neighbor dog mentioned in earlier posts but this dog is calm and quiet. Luckily I didn't see crazy dog today. Actually, crazy dog has been behaving himself lately. I've seen him a few times and he hasn't jumped on me or used me as a chew toy. Maybe he is getting some training at home.
While I was in town I stopped at the thrift store. I wasn't planning on going to the thrift store but yesterday a friend gave me a big bag of clothes that a friend had given to her. I tried them on but they weren't my size or style. I can't stand high waisted pleated polyester pants even if they're free. I dropped the big bag of clothes at the Goodwill and then went in to browse. I found a lot of things to try on but only 7 of them passed my test. All but one were half off so my total bill for 7 items was $25. Not bad. Some of the labels are J. Jill, Christopher Banks, Ann Taylor, Converse, and Old Navy. I don't care about labels for status but when thrift store shopping it is good to pick brands that are well constructed and will last a long time.
Here's my cat posing with my new-to-me clothes because she just loves being in all of my pictures.
Speaking of cats, I saw this link on Vegan Ruthie's blog and had to post it here. I'm going to share this at work too because I work with engineers and they will think it is hilarious. :)
