I am trying to stay away from the thrift stores except for special occasions. This means if Shannon or Maria or Katie A. asks me to go to the thrift store, I would meet them there. No, but really, I was just going too often and although it is the perfect sort of down time for me, my accumulating became ridiculous and I just can't pass up a bargain. So, with that being said, I went today. And hadn't been for a little while. I also went with the back of my car loaded with things to donate. awwwww with no kids --- again awwwwww and while I was shopping this lady not far from me picked up a cute, red purse. I was gawking. She showed it to her friend. I started reaching for it. Ha! No I am kidding, I waited. She put it back on the rack. I waited a few seconds... I said "are you sure you don't want this? It is so cute and you spotted it" She assured me she had enough purses at home and encouraged me to buy it! -- I have to be careful. One day, in December, a lady accused me of shopping out of her cart.
so I bought the purse
I love their friendship.
An afternoon bike ride! Shooting hoops, vacuuming the car, tending to the washer, enjoying time in the yard... this is what our afternoon looks like...
