Today was my typical new Wednesday. I tried to get all of my running around done in a couple of hours. It was longer than a couple, more like four. Yes that sounds like a lot but really that’s a whole weekend plus a half day of running around. Next week won’t be so bad because I won’t have to drive out to the farm where I buy my local meat. That was an hour right there. I also found an Amish place that SB recommended as a source for fresh eggs. The sign said free range not grain free fresh eggs and they didn’t look as pretty as the ones I usually buy…but I have no choice, I can’t get to those eggs until the last Saturday in September. I really hope I like these eggs, especially since I can only eat like three things…okay..slight exaggeration…slight. I really like the eggs that I am used to getting and store bought eggs are just as bad as store bought meat… I just can’t eat it.
I left the farm and drove all the way out past the university to get some new incense. This new place I found has the best and she makes it all by hand. She is also a beautiful soul, even the Girl likes going in to her store. I spent about a half an hour talking to her before I got stuck in university traffic. 2pm on a weekday is not the best time to be on that side of town.
I stopped at Old Navy to get a pair of jeans for the Girl to add to her birthday present. I am so glad I took a picture of the tag because I went through three different styles of Pop Icon Skinny jeans before I found the matching sku. They were on sale this time which is even better.
I truly only wasted time at Fin Feather and Fur, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Shoe Carnival. I would really like to get a pair of hiking boots, all black and waterproof. I guess that’s not a thing because I couldn’t find it. It will be fall like this weekend and my Clark’s sandals aren’t going to cut it at the Renaissance faire. I am probably going to have to suck it up regardless…I have no more time. It would be different if the Girl was home but she is at her dad’s.
My aunt had a card for the Girl so I called her after I left Sam’s Club. She wasn’t home so she brought the card over a little later. The Girl cleans some things really well and others not so much….so I was still straightening up when my Aunt and Uncle got there. We briefly caught up, they had stuff to do too.
I sat down to make my list for the night and got distracted. I let myself get distracted. Now I have to go food prep, well half of the usual because of the holiday. One salad and breakfast for two days and then I am back in front of the computer starting at my story. One scene at a time….I will get there…I hope….Zia
