Today was such a busy day. Up at daylight for the chickens. The sunrise is so beautiful and seeing it gives me such a sense of a new beginning . . a new day is ahead of me . . to do with whatever I please (within reason). Most days, except for a few chores, the days are mine to do with whatever I choose but once that day is gone . . it’s gone forever. 24 hours of my life . . gone. I hope at the end of each day, I’ve done my best with the time given me.
But, today was a day for shopping with my husband. I woke up at 2 a.m. with a scratchy throat but I knew it was sinus though the thought did run through my mind to say “I’m sick . . I cannot go shopping!” That would be a lie and I would not do that. I did lay in bed for a few minutes thinking about what I should do and then the thought went through my mind . . did we ever close the downstairs garage door 2 days ago? Got up, went downstairs . . No . . it wasn’t closed. Good thing there’s no crime in our neighborhood!
First stop was Target. I knew as soon as I saw this sign . . I’d never leave the store. Vince would buy everything in the store that’s 75% off. He cannot pass up a bargain. Yep, we about filled up the SUV at that one stop. I said “Vince, don’t forget that I will not go shopping again til after Christmas!” Panic filled his eyes. I could see his mouth begin to twitch. Alarm bells were going off in his head. I could hear them! 🙂 He grabbed more toilet paper (we only have 384 rolls now); he grabbed another package of paper towels (we’re up to 104 rolls now) . .
In fact . . this is the exact look on his face when I said “Honey . . we must leave the Target store NOW!”
A trip by World Market for more Blood Orange Mimosas.
It was an absolutely gorgeous day to be out running around. A bit windy and a bit warm for this time of year but very, very nice!
We did make it to the restaurant. This is the salad. I love the basil dressing! I also love the salmon, the prosciutto, the tabbouleh and . . I love everything on that salad bar. I did save room for the meats though. Oh, and dessert!
Does he look like he’s sharing nicely? He did. I was stuffed and asked him to finish it.
Yes, dear! We at the whole thing. A few more stops and we were home just in time to unload the car and put up the chickens . . just in time to see the sunset.
What a perfect day! Do I have a good life or what?
