Out of sorts

I still feel all out of sorts while cycling naturally and want so badly to get back into blogging regularly. But life is just so ho-hum these days, there is not much to tell. So here goes a post on life as I know it.

I've been collecting pyrex like a fiend. I haunt the local thrift stores and find nothing but have found a bunch on a regular basis at a local antique mall. When I'm out and about in the neighboring towns I do the same and have amassed quite the collection in a short period of time. I have found several pyrex blogs in the process of determining what I have collected on my own and the value of the pieces. But I haven't really joined in because I don't want to link any comments in those spaces to this blog. I'm not sure why, it just doesn't seem right for them to pop over here based on my comments on pyrex.

I've found that I like "thrifting", but I'm not sure how it makes me look. Does it make me look cheap because I have a good job and can afford to buy things new and am choosing to go to garage sales and thrift stores, or does it make me look snobby because when I go to these places I'm just looking for pyrex? I worry because I run into a lot of my patients while doing so. However, one woman I've seen repeatedly ( I love this patient by the way) is buying up all the costume jewelry in town!

However, with my new pyrex I've been cooking up a storm. Lots of homemade food and dinners and whatnot with the leftovers and all. It keeps the husband happy, if I'm not spending money on eating out, he "allows" me to spend it on he really has a say.

I've been pinteresting lately too and may have collected a few more hobbies in the process. I've been tearing apart fabric just to reconnect it via crochet into rag rugs. It makes me feel less snobby at the thrift stores and garage sales. When I'm scanning for pyrex and I pick up a patterned sheet or curtain or whatnot for my other project and I don't just walk away empty handed.

I've been painting as well, but I'm at the point in my current project where I just absolutely hate it, so I've set it aside for a bit and will pick it back up when some of my other projects are done.

So, outside of work, that's life as I know it these days.

I meant to post pictures, but have transferred them all to my home computer by accident, which I rarely have access to when Nate is in school.

  1. LOL, I feel weird about thrifting too, but there's a great thrift store next door to my office, so I'm constantly checking out the kid's toys, etc. Nothing wrong with getting a good deal!


If you can relate to this post or have an opinion about it, please leave a comment.

I do read everyone of them and look forward to hearing what you have to say.
