Forget clothes shopping and the dreaded malls, I LOVE Home Depot, it's my favorite place to shop! Picked up a couple of things from the cleaners, stopped at a roadside stand for some yummy fresh picked tomatoes, hit a couple of yard sales, had the car washed and vacuumed out, and I think that's about it. Time for a glass of wine.
Forget the glass, I'd go for the bottle, Cheryl!

Give me a hardware store over a clothing store anytime

I'm wearing my Fascinator, my ratty t-shirt circa 1995, and my garden jeans that predate my t-shirt, awaiting the Running of the Roses.

I'm with you too ladies. Anywhere but a fashion store. Give me grocery stores and hardware stores for my fun times. Do you have Lowe's by you? That is our big box fun store of choice - our daughter works for one in OH. Her current position is normally manager of the paint department, but right now she's filling in for a manager above her who is on maternity leave right now. Loverly's store manager is grooming her for movement into and up through the management ranks. Needless to say, we don't shop Home Depot unless we have to go there.

And I agree with Dawg. A bottle of wine and one of those long straws from a sports bottle. If you use a bendy one you can still slurp wine while you slide down in your chair.

I am enjoying a rainy afternoon in my studio playing with my cricut cutter while TB is working on my large table setting up some of his light show equipment.

Violet is on her bed (which is under the big table) and Monkey is in TB's office asleep in the tray of his 3-step ladder

I never saw that before, the dyed eggs. Those are pretty nifty.

Dawg....have you ever heard the late and great Dan Fogelberg's song Run For The Roses? I have his greatest hits CD and that song still brings tears to my eyes after all these years.

LOL....I need one of those big straws. Unfortunately, today I only had 2 small glasses left in my wine bottle and I'm not going back to the store today.

We don't have a Lowe's here but I love that store, too! I'm out in the boonies here and we only have Home Depot and a couple of little hardware stores. Anything else is in the city about a hundred miles away. Congrats to your daughter on moving up at Lowe's - can totally understand you being loyal to them!

Yes, beautiful song, Cheryl. Thanks for the memory!

Thanks, everyone! :-) To make them, I peeled hard-boiled eggs and dipped the whites in the same food coloring gel/water/vinegar mix they sell for colored whole eggs. Then dry on paper towels and fill. Fun!

No pain contract. He took more of the Percocets that were prescribed, and came awfully close to taking more than the recommended max dose according to the internet. He was taking them way sooner than recommended. He switched to Advil because he got too constipated with the Percocets. Then he was taking more Advil than the recommended max dose, and when I called him on it he cut back and is just living with the pain during the day but taking Advil at night so he can sleep.
