Early Day

Category: Holidays | Posted: Sun Dec 04, 2005 2:29 am

We got up before 6 AM and went to the flea market in Prescott Valley. We do this once a month or maybe twice. We sell various things we've collected over the years. It's how I got money for the computer. Now, with Christmas close we went to see what we could sell. We did really well today and came home about 2 PM. It was cold all day. It maybe got into the 50's but it was windy.
We stopped at the grocery store coming home because I have a recipe that needs half a cup of almonds. They were expensive almonds. We spent $24.00. I guess you cannot go into a store and buy just one thing. We ended up with three bags of stuff.
The grocery store has a policy where if the scanner scans a price different from the shelf price you get the item free. So, when I got in line to buy a powerball ticket there was a lady in front of me that had an item and her sales receipt. The customer service clerk had to go and check the shelf price visually and compare it with the scanned price so the line got quite long. There was only one clerk on duty. But, the lady did get her money back. We did one time, too. So I wasn't too unhappy with the wait but there was some grumbling. People are so impatient.
We made several other stops on the way home but still made it by 3:30 PM.
Then, I made myself some tea and decorated the Christmas tree. My son stopped by and said I had a lot more decorations than he had. I reminded him I was a lot older than he was and had been collecting them a lot longer. We used to live in a house with 10ft ceilings so we had a big tree. The taller the tree, the wider the base. We had a LOT of ornaments for the tree. They won't fit on our 6ft tree. So, We have ornaments hanging around the house, too. Those I haven't done yet. You can only accomplish so much in one day.

How tall was the tree that was in the room with the 10ft high ceiling dooley? That must have been a massive tree!

I agree with you about impatient people. It makes me snigger at how petty they can get sometimes. Usually in doing things to speed up they make mistakes and they get things done slower than they would have in the first place. Oh well.

Quite nice store policy as well, I have never seen anything like that over here.

The tree topper touched the ceiling and the tree was usually six feet across. It took up quite a space in the room. I don't know if I would like a house big enough to have a tree where you didn't have to rearrange the furniture to fit it in the room
