I took a quick trip to Canadian Tire for a watering can and some replacement bulbs for some lights that had burned out. I find I always have an odd experience when I go to this CT and this one did not disappoint. On every display that I was looking at there were previously opened packages that had been (obviously) taped back together. Now while I appreciate that these products are still good and they don't want to waste products, it kind of makes the displays look sloppy. And if I have to choose between a new product and a previously opened one, I'm going to choose the new one, if I'm going to pay the same price anyway.
I looked at ironing board covers as well as I need to get a new one because the one I have the pad bunches up and gets lumpy, which is annoying while ironing. The problem is that I really like the colours and pattern of the one I have (evidently why I bought it, as it certainly wasn't for quality!) and I haven't liked any of the ones I have looked at so far. You would think it wouldn't be THAT hard to make an ironing board cover that is good quality and appealing.
While sitting on the back porch an ant approached me, I flicked it away and it made a big arc through the air and landed on a step much lower down. It walked in a circle many times before carrying on. I thought of the wife of the guy who went for a test drive and never came back. She must feel like that ant.
