Who Knew......Everyone Probably

Well, every day is a new more ways than one.  LOL   Who knew that I do not have to print out those coupons anymore........thanks to the Smart Phone.   Probably everyone knew but me.   I am a little behind in all this technology stuff.   How many millions of years have I been printing and clipping those coupons.......too many to count.   Where in the world have I been?   Certainly not up with the latest trends.   And, of course, I got the same story at all three stores.......Michaels, Joann's and Aaron's.  

I didn't do a lot of shopping but I like going to those stores ever once in awhle to see what's new and I usually always run into friends........that is the best part of it all.   And today was no exception either.   I picked up a few things but really don't need a lot at this point.    I did find this great book by Lynne Perrella, Art Making, Collections and Obsessions.   Now does that fit me or what!   I started scanning it and couldn't put it down.   I don't know how I missed this book as it was printed three years ago because I have all of her other books.     Well, of course I had one of the printed out coupons so off we went.  What I found so interesting in it was that I have taken classes with a lot of the Artists who are featured in this book and knowing them a little puts a personal touch on reading about their collections/obsessions.   I can't wait to sit down and really read this book and see what I am missing out on as far as collecting neat stuff.

Since I was looking for a particular magazine, I decided to stop by Barnes and Noble.   Well, they didn't have the magazine but this called my name.........a White Chocolate Mocha with a Pizza Pretzel so I sat outside in the shade and caught up on some emails, net surfing, etc.   Yum is all I can say.   That gave me strength so I could go to the grocery store to get stuff for dinner tonight.   And what a way to ruin a perfectly nice day too..........I really don't enjoy cooking anymore and everything it entails.

So a big pot of stew is cooking, just need to put garlic bread in the oven and Blueberry pie is waiting thanks to Fry's.   You know I am not going to be doing a pie from scratch these days.   Been there, none that and don't want to do it anymore.   Thank You Very Much.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend and enjoying your evening right now.   I finally had to put the air conditioning on as it has been so HOT lately here in the desert.


  1. White Choc. Mocha sounds so very good.
    The rest of your day wasn't bad either. LOL

  2. Hysterical post Nancy! lol! You crack me up. I don't have a smart phone, so I'm still clipping coupons, lol. The mocha and the pretzel sound delish, as does dinner...what time? lol!


Thanks a lot for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. That means a lot to me.
