Saturday:) Just Some Silly Stuff

3 Nov

“When you’re not sure what to do with your day, just be silly.”

It was a lazy Saturday. My sister and I just sat around the house most of the morning. We finally decided to go outside for a walk. Well, that didn’t turn out so well. The wind had kicked up and it was freezing out there. We did manage to walk a few blocks, then scurried home. But, we did rake and sweep some leaves that were covering the entire sidewalks and drive. I was in charge of the stairs. The leaves looked so delightful hiding in the corners of front steps, so I had to take a picture.

We finally got up the energy to get out of the house to run some errands. Our first stop was The Dollar Store. Who doesn’t love The Dollar Store. We found all kinds of treasures and a cart load of totally impractical unnecessary items. But, guess what? They were only a dollar!

I was remembering how we used to take Mom to this store and she loved picking out little treasures to give to her lady friends, or to make some craft project. Just as I was reminiscing, I looked down and found a lucky penny. Thanks Mom. Pennies from heaven.

While I was being silly, I saw this can of mackerel on the shelf. Laughing to myself, I picked it up the can to show my sister, and I said, “Look! Mackerel! I’m going to take this to church tomorrow and ask Father to bless it. Then, it will be……wait for it….. HOLY MACKEREL!

Yah! I know. I’m a nut. After this adventure, we drove over to Walmart to buy even more unnecessary items. Well, some were useful, but not many. Killing time can get expensive.

She bought me this cool Grinch sweatshirt for the holidays. It will match my Grinch hat that I have at home. Plus, it describes my personality quite well. “Naughty.” (Just kidding… I’m about as straight laced as a cloistered nun at the convent.-almost.)

By the time we got home, I was pretty hungry. It was after 6pm and all I had to eat all day was a peach and some tea. I warmed up some more tea. I’ve been drinking gallons of hot tea with lemon and honey for my cold/sore throat. Then, I grabbed a piece of Vicky’s delicious homemade baklava. (I always say to myself, “Darn you, Vicky Hodi!) Perfect! Just what the doctor ordered.

Now, the day is almost over. Time to relax, put my feet up, and maybe watch a movie. What I hard life I lead. Happy Saturday, my friends.

Don’t forget to change your clocks for Daylight Saving Time! Personally…IT AIN’T SAVING NOBODY NOTHIN’. I hate change!

Saturday:) Somemore Painting and Silly Friends

Yesterday, I painted with my senior artist friends, and today, I taught a wine glass painting glass at Lone Star Wine Cellars on the Square. It was a group of nine girlfriends, out for the day and evening. They came in rowdy and giggling, and they just louder and sillier as the evening progressed. At one point, I had to use my loud school teacher whistle to get their attention. It was a fun night, and the energy was contagious. 

The ladies had a good time. The noise level was off the charts. At one point they asked if they were the loudest group that I ever had. I told them that they were not the loudest, but they were the “funnest.” They had dinner reservations at 6:30, so they left their glasses so they could finish drying and came back later to pick them up. 


Saturday: Sales, Sights and Other Silly Stuff

21 Sep

If you see me smiling it’s because I’m thinking of doing something evil or naughty. If you see me laughing it’s because I’ve already done it.
-Unknown…but I think we’ve all been there.
I got up early to check out the big semi-annual Stonebridge /McKinney Ladies Association Fall garage sale. It started at 7am at the United Methodist Church. It’s a big one with great bargains

I found some treasures, but I was on the lookout for a small chest of white drawers or two for closet storage. I also wanted a small wine rack. I have about 10 bottles of wine. I don’t drink wine, but I have been given some lovely wine and I have friends who like wine.

Now, here’s the dilemma. I found this great bargain.

It was ONLY $5. Yep, couldn’t pass it up. But, it holds 70 bottles of wine, and I only have 10. Now, I have to get. 60 more bottles of wine! ( Just being silly.) I’ll probably just have some friends over to drink the 10 bottles, then I can use the rack in my craft room.

I bumped into some friends. Miss Kay and her lovely daughter.

It was a fun busy day, but I had to get back home by 4 to wait for the AT&T guy to fix my internet and Uverse TV.
He came, “He no fix, me be mad!” So, here I am AGAIN on my teeny tiny iPhone, trying to post this. No TV! Let’s see what tomorrow brings. It’s difficult to be silly without internet.
