It has been a busy morning after a rather sleepless night. Last night was filled with late night Stella barkings and early morning storms so I didn’t get much sleep. We had rumbles of thunder all afternoon and early evening yesterday. But it really hit last night in the wee hours. With Moose gone both girls pant and shake during a storm.
I woke to find several messages (that I still need to reply to) from friends and I have written the article for last night’s meeting and sent it in. The skies are grey and the weather is cool. I am glad that I filled the bird feeder yesterday. It has been busy this morning with a multitude of feathered friends!
Yesterday was actually pretty fun. I did get all my running done (except for going to Bath and Body Works, I caved and ordered online after I came home) and arrived at lunch on time. My friend was in bad shape worried that her cancer may have come back. She had two doctors appointments that afternoon. But we sat and talked for a long time over lunch (I was concerned because she hardly ate anything despite being hungry). As we were getting ready to leave she asked if I wanted to go to a resale shop. Well yaaaa! Lol. So off we go! A pile of books and a trinket box later we part ways with the promise to make this a regular thing. We are heading to a used bookstore in Interlochen for our next adventure.
I got a lot accomplished once I got home too. I got things ordered that I needed or wanted to as well as finally getting the printer hooked up to the new laptop. That last part took some doing. I had two plugs that were supposed to go into the laptop but I did not have the right sized port for on of them. I was pretty sure that I could do the wi-fi thing with it and not have to plug it in to the laptop but Mom didn’t give me any paperwork so I had to wing it via menus and my install wizard on the laptop. But it works! And I think that Chris can use it from his office as well. We haven’t tested that yet.
I also treated myself to several things. I got a pair of very fun shoes (I usually don’t do much in the way of clothing or shoes I just wear the same stuff til it wears out) that are really comfortable. I’ll wear them to work today (my first day as a manager on the floor). I also ordered some research books for the novel and a bikini. Now that last item might not seem like a big deal. I live in my bikinis during the warmer months. A few years ago I found a place that makes bikinis that fit everyone, not just the tiny models. It is called Fused. I have wanted to try one for a long time. I belong to their group online and it is a very warm and supportive community of women. This is my dream bikini. I hope. I opted for a surprise bottom piece. But I am very excited! I also treated myself to my coconut scented lotions from Bath and Body Works. When I worked at Younker’s one of their stores was just outside our front door so I could get them when I ran out. Sadly I have been out for probably a year or longer. But I couldn’t justify spending the money on myself. So I splurged on myself yesterday.
I will share pictures of everything as it comes in. I should wrap this up before it gets much longer. I hope you all have an awesome day! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
