No thrifting for me NOOOOOO SIIIIRRREEEEE!

Was I a BAD girl? Not that I know of....Yesterday I woke up to RAIN, so no yard sales! That was a major bummer!

So instead we worked in the house more specifically the living room/dining room....Since the end of May I have 2 HUGE tubs on my patio filled with Pyrex. So I have to decide what was going in, being displayed, what was going in the basement and finally what was going for adoption....

So it was an emotionnaly charged afternoon! I just had to take a nap! After a well deserved nap....I continued to sort and clean and place...

Watch for a For Trade post real soon!

On to another subject! S'Mores are virtualy unknown here in Qu├ębec....Why? who knows! I knew of them from watching tv and reading magazines but never had them. Until last night that is!

 I made S'mores my way (I'm not writing S'mores with a twist because I CAN'T STAND THAT EXPRESSION! it seems every recipe is now with a twist!)

Do you see the Nutella? Yep it will take the place of the chocolate!

I melted the marshmallow on a stick over my stove's burner.
Spread some Nutella on a graham cracker, then add the melted marshmallow.

Then place another cracker on top and squeeze!

                                                        Enjoy! This is sinful and ooey gooey!

This morning I woke up at 7am and was really happy it wasn't raining, because maybe we could hit some yard sales....But at 8:00 just as we were leaving the house it started raining very,very hard !"/$%?&*( oh yeah I'm starting to get ticked off! But what can I do? I poured myself another cup of coffee and went to pet Boubou.....

See? A big (really BIG) and a regular one. What the?
He doesn't seem to limp but we're not taking any chances we are going to the vet later this morning.
If it stops raining Boubou might enjoy some yard sales too!

Be well and keep thrifting ! (because I can't for the moment :) )

Oh no rained out for yard sales. I'll look for your post about Pyrex...I've got some I'm looking to trade also. Poor Boubou!

I hope Boubou is ok! Maybe he just has some swelling on one foot that'll go down soon? Keep us posted. Also, can't wait to see what Pyrex you have for trade.

I'd love to do a trade! Can't wait to see what pieces you need new homes for!

Ooooh, brilliant minds think alike! I have been thinking of making S'mores with Nutella, because I love Nutella so much. But I'm afraid once I start, I won't stop at one or two, and I am trying to lose more weight.

I hope the rain stops for you and that Boubou feels better.

Looks good! I haven't done the twist since the sixties to Chubby Checker on the jukebox!
