These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

A-Shopping We Did Go!

Well, today was certainly therapeutic! I bought.....

At Venture:
  • a mattress pad for the futon
  • some household cleaning supplies

At Petco:
  • a second training crate for the kids
  • treats for the pups
  • a pooper scooper
  • pick-up bags to hang on the leashes
  • bird seed
  • more perches for the bird cage
  • bird treats
  • several other odds and ends

At Hobby Lobby:
  • a book stand/easel for my laptop (and it works like a dream!)
  • picture frames
  • picture matting material
  • fabric to put a new backing on a favorite old comforter
  • a few other odds and ends

At Home Depot:
  • additional hardware for the hammocks
At Sally's:
  • nail care supplies
We actually found time to eat lunch at Chili's, too!

And although we wanted to return to an antique sore and pick up a couple things there, we decided to skip it as it was nearly 5:00. We got a cold drink at Sonic and hit the road.

Linda just bought a new home, moved in just a few days ago, and she bought more today than I did! She even brought home some furniture, area rugs, and bedding!! Boy, am I glad I have a truck to haul it all home in!!

Have you ever noticed that being tired after a full day of shopping is a far different kind of tired than doing a day of yard work? Strange.......



  1. I'd much rather be tired from shopping than yardwork! LOL

  2. MQ, believe me, it would never enter my mind to challenge that statement from *you*!!! LOL!!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
