How is it almost May already?!
Not much going on around here during the weekend. I’ve spent a good bit of time trying to finish reading The Shadows by J.R. Ward so I can get caught up on those books. I finished it at 2 am Sunday morning because I’d made it to a point where I couldn’t stop. The last 20% of the book was brutal. I can’t believe I allowed myself to go so far behind on them. After I finished Shadows I started the first in the Black Dagger Legacy, Blood Kiss.
Friday night I met a friend for dinner, which was both needed and appreciated. We were those annoying people that didn’t get up and leave after finishing dinner and sat there talking for a few hours. We went to a local place I’d never been to and it was really tasty! I had lemon pepper chicken, rice pilaf, and steamed broccoli. Wish I’d ordered dessert but I’ve been trying to be good. Next time!
On Saturday I went to Old Time Pottery, Pet Smart, Kirkland’s, and Target with my mother. She loves Old Time Pottery and rarely gets to go, but I can take it or leave it, honestly. Pet Smart was a trip for dog and cat food and nail clippers for Jasper kitty. He’s so good when you trim his nails, it’s amazing to me. Picked up a picture to hang on the wall in the newly painted bathroom, which I’m hoping to blog about later.
I’m a huge fan of the Best of Friends Podcast and one of the hosts raves about the Sea Salt Vanilla candle there. I didn’t intend on picking it up when I went in but I felt it required a sniff at least. I liked it so much I decided to go ahead and pick it up after seeing it was only $5.99. Lit it when I got home from shopping and Jasper immediately started sneezing, which worried me because of his history with a respiratory infection. Anyway. I’m going to bring it to my office since I spend the majority of my time at work.
The thing about Target is when you go in there you have a list of things to get but come out with things you didn’t expect. Always. My mother is hugely into flowers and such so we wandered over to look at the garden type stuff. At first, I noticed a little bitty version of a gnome wearing a metallic gold hat and talked myself out of it. Then we rounded the aisle to see what was on the other side and there was a large version of the same gnome. I couldn’t help myself. Gnomes just really amuse me and I think they are so cute.
So what did you do this weekend? What are your plans for the coming weekend?
