Steal of a deal

The holidays left me with several gift cards to Lowes, which meant a shopping trip was in order. I had been keeping a list of various things I needed from the hardware store and finally got a chance to make the trip alone. I had my list of items to acquire but also wanted to wander around and see if there was anything else I couldnt live without. Browsing the housewares sections, I came upon this.


I could hardly contain my excitement when I saw these on the shelf. Exactly what I needed, considering I ran out of small jam jars during jam making season last fall. And what a deal, less than .25 cents per jar. This may be a sign that I am getting old and boring but it sure made my night. I bought the last 3 cases they had along with pectin and more lids which were just as cheap.

On to the next one

2011 went by fast.
I commuted to work via bike 129 days in 2011.
Not bad considering weekends, hoidays, time off and travel.

2011 left me with good memories of riding in hot, cold, wind, rain and ice. Almost got blown off my bike in the nastiest wind ever during the fall SLC windstorm. Also went down at the busiest intersection of my commute due to ice. Lucky for me, no injuries resulted from the tree toppling storm or 1 mph fall.

Now I've got a goal for 2012.
