Time With a Friend

Today my friend, Shelly, and I went on a long overdue outing. We did some early Christmas shopping then she took me to Chili's for a late birthday lunch.

We were ecstatic to find that the dollar shop had everything marked down to 60 cents (it takes so little to amuse!) and I loved looking at all the pretty new yarn at the craft stores.

At Hobby Lobby we discovered all kinds of cute snowmen that we're absolutely positive we can make ourselves. Of course, I had to snap a photo so we could remember what one of them looked like (is that permissible?!)

Being with her was just what the doctor ordered. It's been a very long and exhausting week and I really needed some time with someone who "gets me". We talked and laughed and recharged our batteries. It felt good just to be "me" for a little while.

I think I may even be ready for Monday...

Whoa down girl.....don't be jumping into Monday so soon! Glad you enjoyed your outing. It is always good to "recharge" those batteries!

Hugs!

Sigh! The Hobby Lobby I always frequented closed a while back. So did the Chili's that was in the same shopping center.

Can I come to your neighborhood to play with you and your friends?

gleyes - Thanks. I know I'm fortunate to come from a close family. I count my blessings daily. I miss talking with you...

martie - You were so right there! And what a Monday this was! I wasn't as prepared as I thought I was - ha!

clew - Heck yes you can come to my neighborhood! HOWEVER.... the closest Chili's in 45 miles away, and that antique store is an hour away, but....we have lots of coons, skunks, possums and coyotes out here! :-)
