Little Elizabeth doesn’t stay in one size for long. One day, her clothes fit fine, the next I try to put her pants on but her chubby thighs won’t let me and I know it’s time to move up. So I buy the next size up and I think, “Ok, now I have enough clothes for her,” and then she grows out of them two weeks later! lol Slow down, girl.
A few days ago, I found some things for her at our thrift shop. I bought four pairs of pants, a pair of shorts, and a shirt. Each cost between $1 and $3. Some of the pants are too long but I’m going to hem them; I had to buy larger to accommodate for her cloth diaper (and those thighs). ;)
I also found a really cute twin bed sheet that I’m going to cut and use for fabric. It was $4. I have all kinds of ideas for it!
We went to two libraries this week. I am still reading the same (fiction) book as I mentioned several days ago, but this week I accumulated a good many non-fiction books as well. When I’ll have time to read them is anyone’s guess (lol), but I aim to at least try. I’ve learned the art of skimming; for example, I read a good three-fourths of Do More, Spend Less last night in about 30 minutes because of skimming. I slow down when a section of a book captures my full attention but otherwise I skim. Do you skim non-fiction or do you thoroughly read?
This week was our week “off” from homeschooling so I could plan for the next three. Between the libraries and getting Maggie’s drivers license, I didn’t get it all done which means I have to finish today.
I hope you’ve been having a great weekend and enjoy the upcoming week! ^_^
