I read The Weaver’s Daughter as an e-book through the library (using the Libby app on my phone).
I mended a pair of pants for my son.
I harvested lots of basil from the garden and dried it to use in recipes later.
Garage sale season here starts now so I updated my list. I hope to find several items that I will use as Christmas gifts for my family.
My mother took a copy of my garage sale list with her to a community sale and found several things on it for me, including a wooden clothes drying rack. I wanted a second rack and this one is very sturdy. She also found several t-shirts for my 6-year-old for 50 cents each that I will give him as Christmas gifts.She remembered the things he liked and I know he will love these shirts.
I asked a friend if I could borrow a jacket her son outgrew for a Halloween costume for my youngest this year. She said yes, and brought me some pants as well (he is going as an airplane pilot and she had a bomber jacket in his size from a few years ago). After I got off the phone, I thought about how awesome it would be if people loaned Halloween costumes to friends for their children on a more regular basis. The thrift store is a great resource, but borrowing would go even further.
