This morning my son had a birthday party at Gateway Lanes to go to. They played laser tag. While he was at the party, I had a couple of hours to kill. I decided to go to Michaels to get the rest of the supplies for my watercolour class. I found everything that I needed. I'm not sure about the quality, but I should be fine. I know it's more of a craft store than an art store, but it does have a couple of isles devoted to painting and drawing. It was enough for what I needed!! I already have a bunch of things at home and I already bought the few things I talked about the other day. Today I got one more paint brush, the angle brush or dagger. I searched it and they seemed to be the same thing. Hopefully that's true, so that I have the correct brush!! I already have a good, expensive round brush and the brush for doing the wash. I have some others, but I have the three good ones now. I also bought another sketch book – only because it's beautiful, not because I needed another one, lol! There's a picture of a beautiful watercolour tree on the front and I fell in love with it. I bought the masking tape, a new eraser, a cool eraser guard thingy for the thing I'm currently working on, (I've already used it!!) it is super thin and if you need to erase a tiny spot, it has different shaped slots cut out that you can erase through without accidentally erasing too much or the wrong thing!! I got the basic white wax crayon, that was easy, as my son has a gazillion crayons, it's even a trustable!! I got the specific permanent black, India ink mark .05 tip. I think that was everything. I feel like I'm forgetting something. She's supplying the paper and you can always use her tools if you don't have something. There's also an art store in SalmonArm where I've bought last minute things before. I'm sure I'll be fine though. I probably have more than enough!!
Once I was finished at Michael's, I went to Old Navy. I tried on a dress that I really liked, but I was looking for another pair of shorts, preferably denim shorts!! I didn't find any shorts that fit right, their selection was diminished. I did find a pair of jeans that fit, they were even on sale for $17.99. I figured I could buy the jeans and cut them into shorts!!
Following Old Navy, I drive back to Gateway and popped into Dots when I got there, because I was early. I didn't actually think I'd find anything, but I found a pretty tank with a navy and white print in it, for only $9.99. So, I bought that too!! Then I went inside Gateway Lanes to pick up my son. I arrived just as they were about to come upstairs!! Perfect timing!! He had lots of fun playing laser tag!! He wanted to stay and play longer or go bowling or something, but I didn't really few like it. So we drove home from there.
Once we were home, I was starving!! So I had something to eat. Then I searched through a pile of medical receipts. I remembered that my hubby accidentally moved one where we were supposed to get $100 back if we mailed it in. We need it now, with the cost of the train!! So I found it. I just have to fill out the form and mail it away and usually within a week, we get the money deposited into the account. At least it should be here by the time we go on our trip!! Every little bit helps. My
Hubby is freaking out about money. Now he said he found the leak (something has been leaking in our laundry room) he thinks it's the hot water tank. Not good!! We need to figure it out and it's not something we can afford right when we're going to BC in two weeks!! Argh!!
I cut my jeans into shorts and I sat fraying the ends while my oldest and I watched the final two episodes of the series we've been obsessed with!! And, just like that, it's over!! There was a big big twist at the end…something you couldn't have predicted at all!! Crazy who AD actually is!! That's all I'm saying. I'd hate to ruin it for anyone!
I got the kids Rotten Ronnies (as my hubby calls McDonalds) for supper. I had a salad from Sobeys. After supper, my son and I played Guess Who for a while. Then he played a video game with my hubby, while I worked on the thing that I'm not talking about on here, so I don't ruin any surprises! And, after that… bed time, here we are!! On that note, as my eyes drift shut, I think I'll stop for the night!
Night All! 💤😴
