For the past two years, our New Year's Eve has been running a 5K at midnight through the Festival of Lights at Tanglewood. I know that isn't everyone's ideal New Year's Eve, but for us it was great family time and seemed to be a perfect way to ring in the New Year. Tonight, super-husband is working until 930p - so we opted not to do the 5K this year. Instead, we'll be celebrating the New Year at home with a couple of friends (assuming us old folks make it until midnight) :)
I had to pick up groceries earlier and while I was out and about I stopped by the Goodwill Outlet. Honestly, I didn't even know they had an outlet until this summer and this was my first time venturing in. It's a Goodwill store with huge bins filled with miscellaneous merchandise. (Note: make sure you have hand santizer or a pair of disposable gloves). I didn't really see much that caught my eye - it truly is digging for a treasure. BUT, I noticed toward the back of the store a lady unfolding what appeared to be a quilt. She kept looking at it and I kept rummaging in the bins around her and eyeing the quilt myself. It appeared to be in good shape and I could tell it was hand-stitched. The minute she put it down - I walked right over! I was pleasantly surprised -- it was super heavy; no hole, rips or tears; and while it did have a few spots on it - I didn't notice any weird smells. LOL!
