Frugal deeds for the day: I used my "O" dollars today and ordered a 54 piece silverware set for us (some of the current set went down to the beach - seems with the bad economy more sticky fingers?). I will put the old set in the condo closet for replacement pieces. I also got my daughter and husband a pair of leather gloves each - out of pocket for me was .69. Another annoying fact, the house that my husband and I tried to buy as a short sale is now up for auction. It has been almost a year since we made our offer. I want to see if they get at least what we offered. I found some easy recipes for some nice treats on-line during lunch today. I hope I can make them this weekend: Coconut custard pie, chocolate covered coconut candy, toffee bars, and divinity. That should definitely be enough - and I hope we can give most of it away since they will all be loaded with calories. Added: I made an appoint for a cut and color at the brand name beauty school - the "special" price is $24.95 - and I did my own manicure today - in a pretty tiffany blue.
