It's also a place that everyone goes too when it rains.
Today, it rained for the first time in 4 weeks--HA! Take that you rumour that "Living in Seattle is like living in your shower all year long!" :o) Well, that's overstating it a bit. But Quillyute, WA, that's a place that knows what it's like to live in your shower!
And we got a few other things that weren't on our list--a nice wooden shelf from the kitchen section for Riona's room. We need to get her dresser top cleared of the sports trophies so she'll have room for her boom box A&P got for her. We got her some nice wooden hangers--kid's sized--to hang up her nice coats.
Then i found this and...
We were in the store a whole 2 hours, and it seems like all Ri and i said to each other was, "Hey, look at that! It's the (fill in the blank) from the beach house!" ;o)
After we settled in at home, i started testing out my jars--filling them with numerous duplicate bags of thyme, cloves, and cumin seeds. My only complaint: the tops don't screw on. They have a silicone gasket inside the stainless lid that closes down on the glass. Not ideal, sure, because the first time someone unknowingly lifts one by the lid...whoopsy daisy, there goes all your parsley all over the floor. Lord, may it please be something as cheap as parsley!! :o) But i think once i get them in a fabulous little wooden crate, it'll be easier to pick up the whole shee-bang.
I've also changed my original thinking--i am thinking of round labels now...on the tops. Maybe it could work? I'll have to investigate!
