For the first couple of laps of my swim, I was not feeling it. I wondered why I hadn't just taken the day off. Then I forgot about that whine and thought about other things and by the time I hit 1800 yards I was all like hmmmm what if, for now til the end of the year, I try to do 2000 yards a few times a week? hmmmm. Starting today. 200 yards more than normal is kind of a killer. At least it was today. I should have stopped and sat and rested for a bit but I didn't.
I tried to give Trader Joe's the $13 from two weeks ago. Their terminal would not accept payment from my phone so the clerk just said 'take it' and handed me my groceries. I think trying to figure out how to key it into the system was maybe more trouble than it was worth. Gives me all warm and fuzzies about TJ's.
BUT even bigger TJ's is a new cake. Banana cake with cream cheese icing. A little mini sheet cake. Banana cake with cream cheese icing is only my favorite ever. I bought 3 today. I would have bought all of them but I thought maybe I should taste one first. If yummy, I'm filling my freezer with them.
Also I found frozen Hassleback potatoes there! I've always wondered why someone didn't do that. Make up Hassleback's and freeze them. Good going TJ's.
I got the groceries put away and next I need to go up to the sewing shop and buy something. It's Small Business Saturday. Every year I try to get out in the neighborhood and buy at least one thing. Almost always it's not something on a list or something I need but something small and fun. Today will be the same. Might be yarn. Might be fabric. Hopefully, it won't be too $$.
And that's it for my plans for the day.
I'm wearing the shirt I made yesterday. I learned a new trick making it but the shirt itself is going right to Goodwill. There's been a rash of that lately. Not long ago, I tried a new pattern turned out to be not even close to ok BUT it had the coolest pocket ever. It changed the way I add pockets to most everything. The pattern cost me $11 and I'll never make it again or wear the one I made but that pocket trick was totally worth $11.
It's chilly in here today. The thermometer says 64 degrees. I think, when I get back, I'll be turning on my trusty little heater. For it's size, it does an amazing job and very quietly.
Ok, I'm off now to hit the streets.
