Fairy Girls

After spending about 2 hours at the Craft Bazaar (and treating myself to a Prime Rib Sandwich) I headed back home to finish working on the Fairy Girls candle.

But first, I had to get propane. That sounds like a man's job, I know, but Tim had assigned it to me. A new Holiday gas station has opened up on the corner of Raspberry and Northwood. During the grand opening they sent out coupons for filling a 20 lb propane tank for $5 off, with a limit of 5. That's a good discount, so Tim loaded up 5 tanks into my trunk and told me to go for it. I told him I didn't know how to get propane, and he said I wouldn't have to do anything. They do it, so quit trying to get out of it and just please go do it. So I did. The first time I went they still didn't have propane, but they would tomorrow. The next day (tomorrow) they didn't have propane still but would get it "soon". The third time I tried they had propane but the safety valve wasn't working. Please come back tomorrow. The next day I went and safety valve was fixed, but they still couldn't get it to work. So, I waited about three days till today and saw someone else getting propane. Ah ha! Now would be the time. So I went and got 5 tanks filled up at the discounted price of $5 off each one. That's a very good deal and I feel like I got something major accomplished since I have tried to do it 4 times before today.

Then I came home and finished cutting out my fairy design. I like it.

Oh yeah, I bought an art print at the craft bazaar. I couldn't resist. It will be a present to me from Tim so one less thing he has to worry about buying for Christmas. See how nice I am to him? I buy my own Christmas presents. He appreciates when I spend money for him so he doesn't have to.
