I did a little shopping this afternoon. I went to my favorite department type store (Gottschalks) and got a new top to wear with my black slacks to my retirement dinner this coming Friday night. Then I went to deliver a little birthday gift & card to my friend Candy. And on the way to her house I stopped at the newest Wal Mart in my area and ordered some pictures off my digital memory card. After leaving Candy's house I went back to Wal Mart to pick up my pictures and do a little shopping. This store is not a "super" store but they had eveything I needed in the way of groceries including milk & bread. It's a very nice store and not very far from my house. The other two I've been shopping at are both about 12 miles from here in different directions.
It was cold and windy here today but at least the sun was out. The weather forecast is for more wind and rain in the next couple days.
I talked with my son this afternoon and he's getting settled in his new place. He will now have about a 5 minute drive to work each day and I know that will help, especially because he works a lot of 12 hour days. Nothing like working 12 hours and then having a 20-30 minute commute each way. He's so close to home now, he can even go home for lunch if he wants to.
Monday afternoon I'm having lunch with my friends Barbara and Joni. Barbara and I are both looking forward to seeing Joni, we went to grade school and high school together and it's been quite awhile since we've seen her. We are meeting at a local Applebees and I love their food.
I hope everyone has had a good weekend. Here in the U.S it's a three day weekend, Monday is President's Day. They have combined Abraham Lincoln's birthday (Feburary 12th) and George Washington's birthday (February 22nd) into one day. The schools, banks, post offices and all government offices will be closed. It's even one holiday that's an extra day off at the hospital. But I keep forgetting...I don't have to worry about that anymore because I'm now getting paid to stay home from there. (BIG SMILE)
Until next time, Linda
