A few hours ago, I jumped up and yelled for Aaron after suddenly remembering there was an antique consigner that I had meant to stop by yesterday (unfortunately, I arrived a few minutes after they closed their doors last night). He said he could go with me, finishing his work later, so we got in my car, drove to the dealer, and began working our way through aisles and aisle of consigned goods. Most of it wasn’t my cup of tea, but there were certainly some treasures hidden amongst the merchandise. In addition to picking up some early Christmas gifts, I found a few things for my home renovation and upgrades.
Oh, and the barstools arrived today! I am thrilled with them. Later in the evening, my mom came over for several hours to visit since we’ve all been so busy we’re out of our usual routine. Following that, I approved a small grant from the Kennon & Green Foundation to a local animal shelter.
I’m trying to get quite a bit finished before this weekend, when my time is committed to multiple Christmas parties and get-together for friends and family. I’m very behind on correspondence for the Mail Bag and I’d like to get to those, at some point, as well.
Update: The next day, I changed my order, instead going with the Mauviel Professional Copper Cookware 2.5 mm thick 10-piece set and several stainless steel Ruffoni cookware pieces as my core set.
