I bought on E-Bay

Good morning.
Saturday ended up being the busiest day of the week. And the last nice day for a while. We ended the day with tacos for dinner.
Sunday, was a complete wash-out. It was cold(43) and windy. I cleaned the salon as usual, and when Craig got up, I fixed coffee and we read the Sunday paper. Went to Menard's to pick up some all purpose cleaner for the mo-ho. I used the other up doing the final cleaning. We also picked up some larger rollers for the portable manicure table at the salon. With getting new mats, the current wheels are to small to roll up over the mat. We'll see if the new ones help.
Back at home, I did pretty much nothing.
I bid on some Christmas lights for the Christmas tree at work. No one carries these types of lights any more and we really like how they look on the tree. I found an auction on E-Bay that had 3 sets for sale. The auction ended at 8pm Sunday. I waited until Sunday afternoon to bid, not wanting to let the 2 other bidders know I was interested. I like how you can bid the maximum amount your willing to pay, but it will only show the next increment on the website. Like the current bid was $3.25. I was willing to go as high as $33, but my current bid would show $3.75. Only if someone bid higher than $3.75 would it trigger an automatic bid from me. I ended up getting the lights for only $11. So even though I put in a bid of $33, I ended up paying just $11. That's the risk you take when deciding an auction over a buy-it-now price. The seller could have got $33 from me but had to settle for $11.
So I did that and played games. Craig did his usual laundry and bookwork, and as he does when it gets colder out, mad a delicious dinner. A slightly different version of his Cabbage Roll Casserole.

At it was sooo yummy!
You can find the recipe here. And his original one here.

With not much to watch on TV, I down-loaded the first 10 episodes of Hot in Cleveland. We watched a few. They were pretty good.

And now, I'm off to the Salon to try those wheels on that table.
