So, now that I’m “well-connected” again I don’t have anything that I simply must say up on the soap box and I’m not particularly in the mood for surfing and reading other blogs. To tell the truth, what I want to do, unfortunately, is shop. I thought of all kinds of things I needed and wanted while our connection was iffy and I didn’t want to take a chance on being in the middle of an order when it went down.
I’ve already ordered (look away gentlemen) an X-back bra so I can wear my sleeveless dresses and tops without looking like trailer trash. I only ordered one but if it fits good I’ll buy at least one, maybe two, more.
I need some more address labels with both our names on them. I get all kinds of free address labels from people who want us to send them money but they always have either my name or the husband’s name, never both. Those are okay for paying bills because those people don’t care as long as they get their money but for sending letters and cards to family I feel that both our names should be on the envelope. So I need more address labels.
I used to buy this Lundberg Country Wild Rice at a local grocery store but they don’t have it anymore. I can get it via Amazon.com but you have to buy six one pound packages of it at a time so I’ve been hesitating to buy it but I finally decided that I must have it. I really love the stuff.
I think I only have one more piece of fabric for summer clothes and a few more fall and winter pieces but I seriously do not need anymore clothes. I need to finally get around to altering and re-making a few garments that I’ve been hanging on to. One is a yellow dress with print skirt and solid bodice that I want to completely take apart and re-make because I don’t like the bodice fabric. I was stupid and bought a poly-cotton blend. It’s very uncomfortable and it’s also too short so I bought some 100 percent cotton to make a new bodice. Another problem is, being a light color it needs a slip which sort of defeats the purpose of cool summer dresses but I’m thinking maybe if I got some cotton lawn and made a slip out of that maybe it would be tolerable when the weather isn’t terribly hot. I really like the dress even though it makes me look like Big Bird’s fatter cousin but I haven’t worn it half a dozen times in several years because it feels so hot and sticky.
I thought of several more things I wanted to say while I was out walking this morning but I’ve forgotten most of them. I lost three pounds this week in spite of the monster-size hamburger I ate last Saturday. I was going to post a picture of the place where we had lunch but all of the pictures came out blurry. I took them with my phone. I did have my camera with me but I think I need a new “memory stick” and I keep forgetting to buy one. It keeps telling me “Reinsert Memory Stick” so I hope it’s the memory stick and not the camera. If it’s the camera I might just do without for a while, maybe get one next year. The phone takes okay pictures when I manage to hold it still. But I’m sure it’s just the memory card. (I don’t know why they call it a “stick”; it’s a little square thing.)
Anyway… the restaurant. If you like history museums and old buildings you must go to Guthrie, Oklahoma sometime, and while you’re there you must eat at Geno’s. It’s in a beautiful historic building. The interior has brick walls, wood floors and pressed tin ceiling. The menu has a lot of of choices of standard American food, hamburgers, chicken, barbecue, salads, etc. I had one of the hamburgers. I forget what they called it but it had bleu cheese on it and it was sinful and heavenly! If anyone ever asks me what I want for my last meal that’s what I’m going to ask for. The fries were just okay. Not bad but I’ve had better.
I need to push myself away from the computer and get busy. I have much much to do today. The grandson is coming this weekend so I have to make cookies. I need to catch up on the laundry which is overflowing the hampers. (How do three people make so many dirty clothes?) I’m thinking about going to the store again but I might wait and hope I have time Saturday morning. But then I probably won’t get around to it until Saturday afternoon when there’s a gazillion people there and I’ll hate myself for waiting. Anyway, have a good weekend everyone. Stay cool.
