Visitors – This heron has been visiting my pond lately. I caught him twice swimming like a duck in my tiny pond. We had words and I haven’t seen him since. He is ginormous. Sure hope I still have fish!
Yikes! – I received an STD (that’s save the date) post card from my high school reunion committee. The number of years is astronomical. I have seen very few of these people since high school. On the one hand I am curious but on the other hand, they are strangers. My bestie died a few years back. I never maintained a close relationship with anyone else. What to do, what to do…
Mall fatigue – The beloved husband took me on a field trip to a large mall about an hour away to celebrate my birthday. I’ve been there several times but not recently. There are a lot (A LOT) of stores with huge inventories. There are much better selections than I can get locally. It was total overload. I felt like I was in a mouse maze trying to find the few stores I wanted to visit. I missed the Lilly Pulitzer store with its colorful clothing but found everything else. We had an enjoyable lunch and got home at a reasonable hour (for retired folks!). I purchased a small blue vase but I did a lot of feeling and fondling (of clothing not people). Perhaps I’ve outgrown this phase. (Oops, I just heard my mother turn over in her grave! She was convinced I would never grow up.)
Shoes – No, I didn’t buy shoes at the mall but in recent months, I’ve found a brand that works for my fallen arches. The fit is better than more popular brands. An interesting color combo came into my internet feed. One look and I bought them. Basic black with tasteful dabs of hot pinks, purple and turquoise. They were calling my name.
Birthdays – Mine is tomorrow. My condolences to anyone else who has a January birthday. It’s cold, people are broke and no one wants to go out to celebrate. A few years back, I started celebrating my half birthday in June. Much, much better.
So how was your week?
