The best laid plans of mice and Suze………

I know I have been trying to simplify my life, but today’s sale was too good to pass up!

Yep. I didn’t quite plan for the purchase of almost 100 bucks worth of materials….BUT……..they were so gorgeous! and I can do so many things with them! And quilts….and more quilts!

I did however plan for two quilts, one pillow cover, and two pair of PJ pants……….I ended up with enough to make 2 pillow covers, 3 quilt tops, and just plain bought two pair of leggings (not PJ pants) for me and one for Angela…….. and I ‘saved” over 120 bucks cause everything was either on sale or I had a coupon! WOOT!

On the way to Stillwater (a good 75 miles away from Enid) Ang and I giggled and joked all the way there.  I did pull over once to take a picture of an oddball sort of fast food place that seems to serve Thai Tacos.  Yes, yes, I know….thai and tacos just don’t seem to go together, do they?

Well, it’s a crap picture, but there it is…proof that they eat thai tacos in stillwater!

We stopped at a truck stop on the way back home for lunch.  I know, but it is a restaurant shaped like a sailing ship inside and it had pirates! I swear! Best pulled pork barbeque I’ve had in a while…..

Then we were about to pass a giant robot so I pulled off the highway to take pictures….


I was impressed to see so many solar power farms on the way home. I love being able to have the sun and wind make my electricity for me…..

But I am pretty darned sure the very best part of today (besides the great sale and hanging out with Ang) was this………A GIANT CHICKEN!

  8. I know, Suze! The one thing I can never resist is material. But then I never get round to using it, so of late I sit on my hands.
    Sounds like you had a fun trip, Thai tacos and all!

      1. That actually sounds nice! I love mixing up cuisines. Makes my husband shiver in his shoes when I get into an experimenting mood.
