We received one of Bed, Bath, and Beyond's coupons in the mail and figured we'd might as well take advantage of it....20% off is nothing to sneeze at.
See that sauce pan on the right, above the griddle? I went in thinking we'd just buy that for a start, but instead we came out with the whole set.
But wait....there's MORE!
They had a special promo going on: if you buy enough Calphalon products they give you (maybe "give" is the wrong word) a $50 gift card, too. 20% off PLUS $50. Sweet!
But looking back on our shopping experience I think I came up on the short end. I mean, K got some new
pots and pans cookware AND a $50 gift card, but she wouldn't let me buy anything I wanted.
K made me put her back. How fair is that? *pout*
I read an interesting article in the paper that said yellow, orange, teal, and green cars, in that order, had the highest resale values, on average about $1,500 more than similar cars in the more common white (21% market share), black (19%), gray (17%) or silver (15%) colors.
Maybe by the time I buy my next car (no time soon) VW will bring back their Fahrenheit Edition GTI. I dunno....you think it would be a cop magnet? The last thing I need is to drive a cop magnet. I thought it interesting that red wasn't on either list.
I did NOT see this coming!
We had a gray drizzly day yesterday, which was rather nice as it kept the temps down. But last night when I took the dog out the skies were clear. I just assumed (yes, I know) that we were back to "hot and dry".
Instead, this ^ is what I woke up to. Yikes! No complaints here....we desperately need the rain.
It's been pretty intense so far this morning. Lightning, thunder, 60-70 mph winds....luckily I had just enough warning to get my outdoor furniture safely inside.
We're currently under Stage 3 water restrictions: Lawn watering only one day every other week, limits on car washing, swimming pool filling, etc. And it's just the START of summer.
They say unless we get lots of rain soon we'll go to Stage 4 restrictions....no lawn watering at all. Imagine how this will impact lawn maintenance crews, landscape contractors, car washes, etc.
Meanwhile, less than 100 miles south it's flooding. Go figure.
