Nature's September Fools Day
The weather, however, is currently 99 degrees and rising which does not bring with it lovely thoughts of curling up with a hot drink and good book.
I do believe nature is trying to fool us into thinking this summer will be ever lasting... not unlike the way we feel about winter in the month of March.
I was chatting with my favorite cashier at the grocery store today, we both agreed we'll think more kindly of this hot weather come mid-January... but not now.
Especially if you are living without air conditioning. I don't know who is more miserable, me or Miss Victoria. Since she had a flea treatment this morning, I'll vote for her.
I was out and about early this morning, hoping to beat the heat by finishing all necessary errands before noon. It didn't quite happen that way due to a detour to campus to have lunch with my son (a very pleasant change of plans) and the decision to stop by Tuesday Morning before heading to Aldis' to check out their latest pretty paper napkins (a very frugal luxury).
Actually, I also wanted to see the prices on their Churchill china (an autumnal pattern) that I'd seen in their sales paper. If you've ever been to Tuesday Morning, you will know it is not cheap but it is reasonable for what it offers. I call it the upscale version of Big Lots. There aren't many places you can find a Churchill brand mug for $4.99!
This particular china pattern works very well with Friendly Village, too. I only purchased a mug but I'm happy with it. I have always been a pretty dishes, unique cookware, lovely stationary, scented soap kinda' girl... which makes that place just heavenly. Somehow Aldis' wasn't as much fun after that. :)
After doing our banking, paying bills, and stopping by the aforementioned stores.... I called my husband to tell him I was still alive but stopping by the grocery store to purchase a liter bottle of Diet Sierra Mist. It is... as I type... chilling in the frig and soon to be poured over a tall glass of ice. I wonder if Victoria would like ice cubes in her water?
