    I can't wait till I get the new card in my hot little hands. I see a post on my PC PTS showing the World Elite card (10pts) Maybe they posted that to start the activation lol

I need to rotate out my maternity shirts from the closet. I need to give my other maternity clothes one last wash before I box them up. I want to try and sell them next spring, when the twins are bigger. I don't plan on needing them again. I also have some items that I don't wear anymore, but don't know what to do with them. There are some clothing items that I have passed on to my younger brother (that dh wanted to just throw out) and some other stuff to my mom or younger sister. There are three different places in town that will accept clothing donations. I find it difficult to successfully sell adult clothing.
    I have this thing about selling stuff, it has to be worth my time to sell it. So generally unless I can get at least $20 for something I don't bother. Usually I just drop my clothes in a clothing donation bin. We also have this recycling depot in town that takes all kinds of stuff and sells them, the money is used to keep the center open and it is so fantastic that I donate a lot there (mostly household stuff) because I love being able to get rid of so many things in one place. Maternity clothes seem to sell but I hear you on adult clothing, unless it is Lululemon or something I find it harder to sell and not worth the effort and my time to earn a couple dollars. Also, I find I need to get something out of the house immediately or I will change my mind about getting rid of it so trying to sell stuff makes me second guess getting rid of it.

    Good day, everyone! It's quite cool here - apparently that will be our whole week. Just hoping for bits of sun here and there!
    Blanching some corn to freeze - I keep thinking the next lot will be the last of the season, then we find some lovely cobs!

    We bought corn at Walmart yesterday for 10 cents a cob! And it was the best we had all summer.

    I'm so disappointed that I don't qualify for this new card given the annual salary and/or combined income.

    I don't get it if a person has good credit why disqualify them based on salary...

    Did you call? They may have an offer for the card on your account. I know someone who got it that doesn't make anything close to what they stated.

    @sotypical and @Angela273 - if you have any good quality fabrics in some of the clothing from a couple of years ago, see if you have someone who can give them new looks or alterations so you can wear them when your youngsters are older. It's very hard to find good quality clothing in shops for womenswear. That is why I have a couple of community sales in mind for next spring based on good finds at this year's events.

    Saturday-I made the summer herb pesto from the magazine and next time, it will be only basil and parmesan with less lemon juice. The mint is fighting with the flavours and the lemon juice is not helping. But the pesto is fine when warmed up for cooked pasta and today I had some pesto on a slice of bread for lunch.

    Oy, I could only dream of that price, but I've heard of it before in the east.
    Here, 12/$4, pretty much the same as they have been all summer - just had two of them, a bit more mature, but still juicy and very good!

    My second oldest sister just emailed me some photos, which she got from an older cousin of ours - he sent her a flash drive full. She just sent a few, because she says lots need light/dark correction - but they are the first I've seen of my great-great grandparents on my mom's side, and my three-times great-grandmother!

    Plus there's a lovely photo of most of the cousins with my grandparents at their homestead - I'm the wee one sitting on the right side in that wagon or whatever it is. This was 1961.
    I didn't know my grandmother; she passed away when I was three or so, but I did get to know my grandfather.

    The pesto recipe is not online (there's a similar one without the dill and chives, not that I used them).

    However, the packet recipes are online so here you go:

    @saundyl -the ginger snaps recipe will come in handy to give some variety to tea nights when it's colder. Thanks for sharing!

    The WM in Estevan had corn on the cob for 10c each when I went there yesterday. It might be worth checking.

    Wow, got some pretty good deals this morning at the grocery store. Our little market always marks down the milk products when close to expiry. I bought:
    2L buttermilk .99
    4L organic milk .99
    1L organic half and half cream .99
    700g mozza cheese 2.50
    750g organic mango yogurt .99

    Wish all my grocery bills were this low. We'll drink the milk soon enough. I'm using most of the buttermilk to make muffins. Not sure what to use the cream for yet - any ideas?
