Kate's 5 Things

Yesterday I sent out my monthly newsletter. If you haven't signed up for it yet, what you're missing is a lot of gossiping about my neighbours, bitching about my co-workers, complaining about my husband and badmouthing my family members. 

Actually, no. What you're missing is pretty much just more of the same as what you read here most days. It's a little more personal because -- well -- I know exactly who's reading it, as opposed to not knowing who's reading the blog here. Lately I've been copying and pasting stuff directly from my private journal. Sometimes I throw in a short video or a photo, that's all. It's really just a grab bag; I never really know what I'm going to put into it. 

I didn't realize till after sending the August newsletter that I've been compiling Kate's 5 Things for more than a year already. Whoa! It seems like just yesterday that I mailed out the first one.

So Happy Anniversary to the newsletter, I guess. 
And if you haven't signed up yet, what are you waiting for? 
Just send an email to the address below, and Bob's yer uncle:

I thought I'd read a little in the café while Scott went to wash his hands before breakfast was served.

Man I HATE shopping. If I get down to one or two outfits I grit my teeth, and when I find something that fits I buy it in three colors :) I must have saved billions over my life time. 

I hear ya, sista.
Some years ago Cathy had given me a pair of jeans that fit right and I wore them until they faded so badly that I dyed them to try to keep them presentable; our hard water discolours and stains clothing, so I do a lot of machine-dying. I've still got them but I'm not a faded-jeans lover and dye doesn't make them look the way I like.
Anyway they were Gap jeans so I took the style info and went to the Gap store in Kelowna when I visited my dad and sister there a couple years ago, and wouldn't you know it, they don't make that style anymore. Frig!! So they brought me some that they thought was most similar, and I bought two pairs.
This fall will be three years that I've worn both pair every week. To make them last, I wash them in cold water and hang them to dry. They still look almost like new! I might write Gap a letter and brag.
