A Big Hole in My Head

That hole in my head is getting bigger. The other day I posted that I needed another sweater like I need a hole in the head and then ordered the birds eye cardigan from LL Bean. Today, I ordered not one, but two lambswool cardigans from Pendleton. I ordered a green one and a red one. They are the same style sweater. They never go on sale, and they were marked down from $88 to $39. I couldn't resist. I already have the same cardigan in 3 other colors: navy, black and yellow. If you haven't check them out yet, Pendleton is having a good sale.

My next project is sorting through a tote that has about 100 tubes of lipstick plus other cosmetic items that I got in Clinique gifts with purchase. I am going to start using all the little tubes and bottles of goo that are in there. Maybe I'll finds some products that I can't live without.

It's raining here tonight. They are expecting 3 inches of rain before tomorrow night. Huntsville is expecting 6 inches. The ground is so soggy right now. The rain is going to make it worse. I guess we should appreciate it. It beats that horrible drought that we have had for the past 2-3 years. Even though it is only 8:30, I may go ahead and go to bed so that I can take advantage of the rainy night.

My sister loaned me some of her Nancy Drew books. They were in a storage shed and smell musty. Does anyone know how to get rid of the smell? I put them in a box with a bowl of vinegar, but it hasn't gotten rid of the smell. I may try a bowl of baking soda.

So you're not like Carrie on Sex in the City who LOVES the musty smell of old books?

I have two friends who collect the gift sets from Clinique and they both have picnic baskets full of lipstick. Funny thing is I swear that I've never seen either of them wearing makeup.

You just never know what people want to collect! I actually usually like the lipstick colors in the freebies, but by the time I use it up and want to buy it, they've discontinued it.

I've heard that crumpled up newspaper in a closed container with the books will work. Not sure how long you have to leave them though.
