No Sun Glasses Today & Happy Birthday Will

It is raining more than cats & dogs today. Plus the wind is blowing.  I braved the crowds and went grocery shopping....the good old Fred Meyer store near my house was packed.   And everyone was in a cranky mood, banging into other people's carts, there were screaming kids and yelling mothers.  Oh what a mess!  It actually took me almost 2 hours to navigate thru the newly remodeled store to find everything on my list.  Of course when they remodeled they moved everything around.  WHY DO THEY DO THAT ?   But now I'm home with a little chuck roast in the crock pot for dinner later tonight.   On days like this, I like to turn on all the lights in the house and turn the radio or a CD up loud.  It seems to take the gloomy atmosphere away. 

I heard on the radio coming home that today is the 127th birthday of that famous American, Will Rogers.  He was born November 4, 1879 and died in a plane crash in 1935.  The radio announcer said his favorite Will Rogers quote is  "What this country needs is dirtier fingernails and cleaner minds."  I agree...that's a good one.  If you'd like to read more about Will Rogers just follow this link;

Well, my break is over.  I've got all those bags of groceries sitting around in the kitchen and they need to be put away, so until next time.......Linda

Brrrr that just sounds cold-rain and wind.  It was a mild sunny, cloud free day here. Temp of about 68 degrees.  We're enjoying it while we can.  They move everything around in stores regularly so we have to search, spend longer in  the store, and make impulse purchases.  "Guilty". LOL
Roast sounds good. I need to make one soon.
Have a good Sunday.

mmm, I can smell the roast cooking in the crock pot. There is nothing better on a rainy day that something delicious cooking in the kitchen.  Hope it was good.
Hugs,  Kathy

Why do stores move there stock around I always wonder ~ am told it is because we have to search and maybe see other lines they sell and be tempted to buy ~ It was very cold here yesterday 'Saturday' although we did have blue sky's and lots of frost ~ this morning Sunday blue sky's ~ cold ~ and no frost ~ Loved the Will Rogers quote ~ will go have a read about him thanks for the link ~ Ally
