Memorial Day

Well, I couldn't manage plans with anyone, so I took myself shopping.

Started the day by sleeping late, then having brunch at Dunkin' Donuts. Then I went to the Skyview mall, to Target. I got a pair of pants, a pair of shoes, and two shirts. Got a drink from the Starbucks in the store, something called a Dragon Drink, made with coconut milk, and dragon fruit. Quite tasty and refreshing.

The I browsed the mall a bit. Checked out Old Navy and Nordstrom Rack, didn't find anything I wanted, and then started going farther afield, mostly because I didn't want t go home yet.

Did Bob's Discount Furniture, in the hopes they might have a bookcase I could use (They didn't), and Michaels just because it's there, and then I went to BJ's.

And in BJ's I finally did something that I've been talking about for years. I got a new printer. It's pretty cheap, it was on sale for $49.99. It prints, scans, and makes copies. And it's wireless.

I came home in a cab rather than cart it on the bus. Got home and started setting it up. Was nervous as all get out, thought for sure I wouldn't be able to get it hooked up, but I did! It WORKS!

So after that I Skyped the FWiB, and after that made dinner, and then went into the bedroom to just putter around on the phone and read.

But I feel I had a very successful day all around.

So here's to the fallen heros who gave us this day. Wish I could have gotten to a parade but it was not to be.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. My new printer works.

3. Memorial Day and what it means.

4. Clothes from Target.

5. Lovely weather.

6. The cute squirrel I took a picture of.
