Have you ever just taken the day off to go wherever your mind and body took you and had nothing at home pressing to do? Well I did just that today.
The weather is just beautiful - the kind of day you can dress for summer or put long sleeves on - MY KIND OF DAY!
Sooooo....I took off for an hours drive to one of my favorite Wholesale places to buy for my shows and when I got there I went in - looked around and no one was there so I went over to the stairs and called up to the office....no one!
So I sat down at their desk for a few minutes thinking they would be back, possibly an early lunch....NOT!!!
So off I went to a cute litte shop up the street and found a couple of great treasures - you know what a treasure is - something you just have to have, can't live without....yeah, right....a halloween/pumpkin head doll and some beautiful red napkins. A girl just hasta have these you know!
And then I did the trip back to the other shop.....no one! So I asked the people in the next building if they had seen them - they said they had gone to wholesale market and were not back yet! Aw man.....I NEEDED THINGS...lol
Sooooo, I figured it was a wonderful day to 'stay away' and headed for the next town where there is a super wonderful Primitive shop that I always find lots of goodies in.....well wouldn't you know - THEY WERE CLOSED TODAY TO GET READY FOR THEIR FALL OPEN HOUSE!
I couldn't get a break on spending money even TRYING!!!!
That left me with the only thing I could do....EAT LUNCH....so off to Applebees I went and had one delicious Asian Chicken Salad....as far as I'm concerned that's the only thing they serve...lol
Mind you I'm sitting there all alone and my hands are on the table, clasped together so the waitress came over and asked me if I cared to have a newspaper in my hands...lol I said you bet - nothing more sad than a single person dining - especially a woman.
So then in came three business men and they were seated at the table next to me - and when I say next to me IT WAS NEXT AS IN 'WITH' ME....I was at one of those single tables along the railing and right next to the railing on the other side is a high table - THAT'S WHERE THEY SAT! I felt like I was dining with them....but you know what? They weren't gentlemen at all, not one of them bought my lunch! LOL
Thanks for putting up with my sad, uggy day!
Oh, I almost forgot....it ended quite well. I went to visit my cousin who works at an ice cream shop and went in and had a big hot fudge sundae to drown my woes.
