Some days I amaze myself. Other days I look for my phone while I’m holding it.
A quiet day today. I needed to leave the house because, of course, I needed fresh air, and also because the cleaning lady was coming. I neither wanted nor needed to be here while she was doing her fine job.
I ran errands, I drank coffee, and I braved Costco once again. And there, people tested my patience as I tried to maneuver through the books and holiday decorations. Samples of mashed potatoes and peppermint bark were being offered…and I realized once again I had made the mistake of going to the store during a weekday lunch hour.
Nevertheless, we now have paper towel, tissues, and generic Advil, and I hope to not have to visit Costco until January. What could we possibly need? If there’s anything Leslie can think of, Leslie will have to go buy it!
I came home, ready for peace and quiet, and found that our cleaning lady had not yet arrived. Grumble…..and then she showed up five minutes after me. I relegated myself to the patio, wrapped in an afghan because it was “chilly” and continued to read my book. I have 100 pages to go and I still have just under two weeks until book club meets again. Yahoo, I can likely squeeze in another book!
Today, I wish Marcy, my friend of 39 years, a very happy birthday. Which reminds me: tomorrow, I will write about the upcoming national dates we will be celebrating in December. I bet you can’t wait.
