The Navy was hosting a Super Garage Sale yesterday at Richardson Field near Pearl Harbor and I could not resist going. We gave away, donated or sold most of our holiday decorations last year before we moved to Hawaii so this was an opportunity to buy some economically. Besides, it's being green by reusing things people don't want.
It was a beautiful day and I couldn't wait to start looking. The field was jam packed with bargain hunters.
I was not disappointed. These ornaments looked brand new and I got them all for $3.50. It was funny because the colorful box of bulbs was tagged at $1.50. I was about to pay for it and the woman smiled at me and said it was supposed to be a dollar. What could I do? I bought two boxes.
Because my sister-in-law and niece are both going to have to work on Thanksgiving, we decided to have Thanksgiving later on Saturday. After all, it's not the day that's important, it's the family you're thankful to be spending it with.
Now that I've got my ornaments, I told Art I'd like to put up the tree a tad earlier than usual....like today? Being a very nice and flexible husband, he said, "Sure."
