20 September 2007

It was a great day off! I was home on the computer for a while in the morning. Got the newspaper read. Didn't do a thing around the house, but there was nothing pressing to do. I thought of going to my mom's for a visit, but she's got her aide there on Thursdays, so she doesn't 'need' me. I wanted to go to my bank. I wanted to buy pansies. So, I drove by Sam's Club to see if they had any. They didn't, but I thought I might as well go in and look around. I bought stuff and put it in the back of my CRV.


Then I went to Walmart. They had pansies. I decided to go in and browse. I bought stuff and put it in my car.


After that I had something to return that's been in my car for ages:

I was feeling like a sneaky paparazzi. I worried that someone might think I was doing something illegal.

Time for lunch!


Wasn't I good? Black bean soup and an apple. Not a cinnamon crunch bagel with hazelnut cream cheese.

A few more errands:





I enjoyed all the errands. After I put all the stuff away, I went online and checked out a favorite blog, The Pioneer Woman Cooks! She had a recipe for Oatmeal Crispies that I got the urge to make. I decided to add Butterscotch chips to it. Seemed a good match for the oatmeal.

I had one cookie and it was delicious. I'm bringing the rest in to work tomorrow.

Then I made a pineapple pizza. Aren't you glad I got a new camera?


Finally, I noticed the way the setting sun was casting it's light outside. I went to look. It was the beginning of a beautiful sunset.



It was a good day

That does look like a good day. But it does raise a question.

What would I have to send you in trade for a couple of dozen of those oatmeal cookies with raisins instead of butterscotch?

Inquiring minds want to know. ;-}

I do the same thing with my camera. I take pics all over the place and people always look at me like I'm a terrorist or something. Of course I live in a really strange little town.

Great pics, love the sunset.

I love that you tried Ree's (pioneer woman's) cookies! I was drooling reading her biscuits and gravy post a few days ago. She is such a fantastic photographer that I am envious. Now, I need to order that camera as practice makes perfect as they say.

Oh what fun you are having with that camera! I've pretty much always lived in tourist towns so nobody thinks twice about seeing someone wandering around with a camera.

Well...there was that time when I was trying to get a good shot of a dandylion in a pothole in the school parking lot...

I love Ree's recipes! It is the time of year for glorious sunsets. I was just talking about it last night.
