It is one of those rare years where winter has taken its toll on almost all of us! Now, I realize some of you are really suffering with power outages and mountains of snow. But, for us in South Texas, we are just not used to this much cold. We are wimps!
Last week I awoke to this on my front porch...I have not seen anything white in our city since 1985! These were strange little ice balls which resembled Dippin' Dots Ice Cream treats.
I do not have that many winter clothes because we just don't wear them this often...so I am beginning to dig way back into the closet due to sweater fatigue!
There I found a Chicos silk jacket I have not worn in a long time.
I layered a long sleeved tee underneath. Layering is the way to go down here because our days tend to warm significantly! It is hard for me to believe that Spring Break is a month away! This blue jay in my yard yesterday brings hope of spring to come!
A good way to let Spring Shine through is to do a little shopping at Goodwill. Next Saturday, February 22 is the 90th Annual Rummage Around Event!
On Saturday, Feb. 22, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., thousands of shoppers at eight different Goodwill stores throughout San Antonio will visit the 90th annual Junior League of San Antonio Rummage Around in a treasure-hunt for new and gently used, high-quality items including clothing, accessories and housewares.
Proceeds from the event fund Junior League and Goodwill programs, and help serve San Antonio families in need. Through this collaboration, Goodwill provides “community cash” for partner non-profits to shop at Rummage Around.
During the event, families will also have access to free and low-cost services, including job search services, health care information, and financial literacy programs. These services will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at four Goodwill locations:
- SW Military Drive at Zarzamora St
- Fredericksburg Road at Vance Jackson Road
- Hwy. 281 at Bitters Road
- Loop 1604 at Bulverde Road
