Good Intentions




Remember all the stuff I stuffed in my car? (I wrote that intentionally.) Instead of taking it to Goodwill, I took it to our local DAV Thrift Store. I laughingly told the lady my plan was to donate it all and not buy anything else. She said that never happened.

Well, she was right, but I only bought a small steamer. I hoped it would make removing the wallpaper in the bathroom easier.  It only cost $2. It didn't work.

 
 
Then I stopped at Tuesday Morning on my way home. I bought 2 Christmas decorations for 50% off. I hoped to use both of these in a Valentine vignette. I never made it.


I made one more stop at Kroger where there was an in-store special. Ham was 99 cents/pound. I quickly snatched up one and convinced another shopper to do the same. She was hesitant because they were huuuuuuge. I pointed out that the butcher would cut it for free. While I waited for him to cut and wrap mine, I also saw a sign that said they sharpen knives for free. Good thing to know.



I came home with my ham for Easter and one to eat before then. This I actually did. I baked the ham for a meal for my daughter and family when they came home from the hospital.

Do you have any  good intentions that never materialized?

Thanks for visiting my blog! Your kind words were so thoughtful! I agree with you I don't like word verification either! I have finally ..... finally found word verification on my dashboard. I hope I have successful turned it off! It is not like I haven't been trying to turn it off! I have spent weeks looking for the right spot. I am not well versed on all the aspects of the different parts of blogger. My time is spent helping my 89 year old mother who recently had an accident. My husband is handicapped and needs my assistants and a week ago fell while using his walker. The time I spend on setting my table and posting it on my blog is a relaxation for me. I hope you will visit my blog again and please leave a comment for I really enjoy it. Happy Tea Party! Pam

Indeed. I have good intentions on a daily basis, but it's easier just to sit here at my computer and pretend I don't. LOL

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions and yes I've had a gazillion that never materialized. But just because we haven't *yet* doesn't mean we won't, can we leave it at that :)

All the time! Still, like you, it is great when we do get something accomplished that we want to. Notice on your list that the things you got done were for somebody else (donating and cooking)? Some don't even get that part figured out.

Loved this post.
