Monday I heard Bob Woodward speak at the lovely historic Miller Center, a.k.a. The Faulkner House, a.k.a The Old Ivy Inn. I had never been there before and discovered 19 acres of lovely grounds and a beautifully restored mansion. Mr. Woodward's presentation was very interesting and I put a check mark in my brain to seek out his books at the library. Later in the week when I stopped by the Recycle Center in Charlottesville and there is this wonderful trailer in the back full of discarded books! I actually found an old book of Bob Woodward's, The Commanders. I did the sniff test, no funky old smells and have begun reading it. So far it is fascinating and it was FREE.
Tuesday I took a trip to Lynchburg to have lunch with the parents and Wednesday I met with my Newcomers Club Saving 101 Group. Thursday I zipped up the 29N Bypass - yes, there already IS a bypass -- it's called Earlysville Rd - to get my hair cut and pick up some deals at PetSmart. I had a $15.00 off coupon for $50.00 or more purchase and it really adds up when you buy bagged dog food and joint supplements. Anyway, I saved over $30.00 with coupons.
