Went shopping (which I rarely do), at Walmart (which I almost never do), and spent in excess of $223.00 (in four stores). I didn’t buy a dress but I bought two long skirts (which I don’t need). When “out in public,” you’ll see me wearing long skirts and an attractive color-coordinated blouse. Hardly a day goes by that someone doesn’t compliment me on the outfit I’m wearing. Truthfully, I didn’t “need” another skirt (or two) but “it made me feel good” and that was the reason I left home today.
First stop was the Senior Citizen’s Thrift Shop where I found–and purchased–half-a-dozen attractive bottles, and vases, for my Bottle Tree. At Walmart I bought Perrier just for the green glass bottle. I selected Walmart because I wanted Sterno, and other items, for “evacuation necessities.” (I may be the only resident going to all the work–and expense–of “being prepared.” Houston TV news is urging hurricane preparedness; our CARE Facility Director urged preparedness.)
Before I left home, I received an email from the RV sales and repairs (in Florida) that sold me the new air-conditioner. They want their parts returned!! I’ve been conscience-stricken for weeks but had to wait for the air-conditioner thermostat installation before I could return the “wrong” parts. It was the RV sales and repairs mistake; I ordered all the correct parts. Never-the-less, I’ve felt bad about having the correct parts (uninstalled) and unable to return the wrong parts (installed). Does that make sense?
I hadn’t put away groceries but was asked to move the plants from a resident’s deck to my patio. Helen fell recently and broke her hip; she’s in a local convalescent home. I’m “foster parent” again as my shady patio is filling up with more plants!! Today: Three large, attractive Coleus, three Mosquito plants, several “unknown.”
Forgive me; this blog message is just idle chatter. My trailer home is wonderfully cool and comfortable; broiling hot outdoors (3:00 PM). Gratefully, I sense the air-conditioner is operating efficiently!!
