Heya’ everybody! Sorry for the late blog post! I had a lot of fun this weekend! Come and see what I did! 🙂
Well last Saturday, LOCMom and I went up to Weaverville, CA to see the annual Chinese New Year Lion Dance! It’s the Year of the Dog, ya’ll! This year, instead of kids performing the Lion Dance, there was a Chinese martial arts group performing the dance and they were absolutely super! Really talented those people were!
And the inside of the California State Park’s Weaverville Joss House Temple!
Sorry for the red circles in the pictures on two pics. I just felt the need to blot out these people’s faces because if it were me being photographed randomly really well and uploaded to a blog, I would like permission first. 😉 Didn’t do that for everyone in the pics, but I edited out the most obvious well captured faces. 🙂
Also, LOCMom’s friends were with us at the Lion Dance and we had lunch together after the big show! The food was good, but my fries could have been a little warmer. Oh well. 🙂 LOCmom’s friends then left and after checking out the local art shop and me hanging a memory on a Memory Tree in it, we drove home and relaxed all day!
Also bought a Starbucks’ glass cup ornament at Starbucks for 40% off for next Christmas since LOCMom likes Starbucks a lot. It was really cute and she picked it out herself, so I just had to get it! 😀
Money Spent on Saturday
- Starbucks Ornament – (around $4.50)
- Postage Stamps (for leftover Valentine’s cards) – $10.00
Total Amount Spent: $14.50
On Sunday, I decided to hit up Goodwill and found two things there! A card shuffler and a shower mat. Alas, the shower mat was brand new in its package, but didn’t work for my tub floor. Booooooooo. 😦 I have tried numerous shower mats for that flippin’ shower floor and none of them have worked in the past except my last one which was 15 bucks. I decided after the shower mat I bought at Goodwill that I will not be buying anymore. However, the card shuffler worked great! And I only paid $2.19 for it. 🙂 Not a bad deal since they go for like 10 bucks each on Amazon last time I checked! LOCMom has been wanting a card shuffler for a while and I happily bought the one I came across at Goodwill that day. 🙂
I also hit up the dollar store for a few small things as well. 🙂
Then after Dollar Tree, LOCMom and I went to feed the birds! And oh my god, there were SO MANY PIGEONS THERE! Like, there was like, 200 hundred of them at least. I heard in a movie or TV show once they were called “rats with wings” and I must agree that they did act like a bunch of hungry rats with wings…
Here are three pictures of all of them!
And the last one…
See? Crazy huh? O _O There was so many of them even the duckies and the geese didn’t want to eat around them. Little piggies!
Then to end the day, LOCmom made a nice meatloaf dinner for LOCAuntV who came over and visited with us for a bit! It’s always nice to see her and catch up. 🙂
Money Spent on Sunday
- Circle Hair Brush (OCC Gift) (Dollar Tree Item) – $1.00
- Hershey’s Cookie and Cream Candy Bar (Dollar Tree Candy) – $0.89
- Shower Mat (New in package) (Goodwill item) – $4.19
- Card Shuffler (Goodwill Item) – $2.19
Total Amount Spent: $8.27
So yeah… My shower mat failed, but at least I got a cool card shuffler! Battery operated! 🙂 I fear that this month may be a bit spendy, but I will try to make everything work! ^_^
How was your weekend?
