Wow, I didn’t realize that today’s party was my 100th TTF! I should have planned something special.
I have had a weird week. One day I have NO motivation and get little to nothing done and then the next I dive into a organizing/cleaning project. Of course, now that I think about it, my moods have correlated with the weather. One day it is rainy and gloomy, the next it is sunshiny and spring like. And then today we had a snow blizzard. No wonder my body is so confused!
What about you? Has you weather been effecting what you have gotten done this past week?
Are you a big book thrifter? I am! I love to find unusual books for cheap prices. Recently at SA I found this huge book for .25 cents!
Emily Post’s Etiquette is quite literally the etiquette bible.
It has a section on every subject.
A lot of what I have read so far is common sense and common courtesy. But, then I also realized that I was raised in a home in which both common sense and common courtesy were taught and expected.
Sadly, I see all too often, that many people don’t seem to have either of these skills. As a very simple and basic common sense/courtesy situation, the above small paragraph regarding coffee shops/deli’s. Recently I was at Panera having coffee and there was a group of 17-20 year olds sitting at a table across from me. They were having a fun time and then when they got up to leave, they did just that, left without cleaning their table. Now these were not rude or obnoxious people. They all seemed very nice but, I could tell that they didn’t even think to bus their table. I thought that was so surprising.
When I see something like that I often wonder if they grew up with “family dinners” around the table. And were taught when you are finished with your meal you remove your dinner plate and silverware.
Personally I think that this book should be a text book for high school students. It should be part of a mandatory class taken in order to graduate. Part of a Real Life Preparedness Class.
Okay, I will step down off of my soap box and put it away for awhile. LOL
Time for you to share all your thriftiness with us!
