Yesterday we made a trek to town, despite heavy snow. It was warm enough that the snow was not really sticking to the roads....The snow made no dent in the crowds in Walmart. Getting a parking place there was impossible as usual...handicapped placard or none. I had already done my grocery shopping on Friday so this time was free to wander around and just LOOK. I found three tops for $5.00 each and a pair of black dress pants for $9.00. I'm wearing one of the tops today (see my profile pic)...I love the colors in it: deep blues greens and turquoise. It's nice to wear to church and every Sunday I struggle wtih the "What-0n-Earth-will-I-Wear"s so now I have two more options. (the third blouse was more sporty)
I also had ordered from Catherines's (a subsidiary of Lane Bryant) a sleeveless dress that is kind of long, almost a maxi. It has blue flowers and is really just gorgeous. I spent more than I usually would have on it but I wanted something nice to wear for Easter. Of course, it's sleeveless and yesterday it was snowing...but hey, it's March and in two weeks it could be warm..who knows. Even if it is snowing, I"m going to wear it....I've got hot sauce in my veins. LOL. Menopause is good for something. I also got a gold shrug from Catherines which I can wear over the dress if need be...although I hate to cover it up...it's so pretty. It would be nice to have accessories to wear with it. I have almost no earrings or necklaces...They all get broken or lost. The other day I picked up the two trays I have my earrings in and they spilled all over my room. I'm sure some of them fell down into the recliner and I'll never see them again. I did not try to match up the pairs yet or fix the mess in my trays...I was in a hurry and just threw them back in there after I picked them up. Maybe that would be a good goal for this afternoon.
I also bought a little slow cooker at Walmart. I'd given mine to my daughter and then regretted it. She never uses it but kept forgetting to bring it to me, so it was either a matter of growing old without one or buying one for myself...which I did. It was only $10 so it wasn't a huge investment. I like to throw a bunch of grains in there overnight and make a hot cereal type of thing for the morning. Steel cut oats are also good. It's also good for slow cooking rice if you want it to be ready at dinner time.
I have no idea what I'm going to make for dinners this week. I should really come up with a list of recipes. Otherwise it's gonna be a LOOOONNG week. My husband is on this cardiac diet and that combined with his unbelievable pickiness makes for a difficult dinner choice. It seems like no matter what I make, he complains.
Oh well. gotta run.
