I was supposed to go to my mother's Friday evening, but the weather did not cooperate. Where she lives everything closed early due to snow, sleet and icy streets. After, I was home and settled, I called her and she said that the temperature had risen and it was just raining. It was still a good thing that I didn't tackle it. It rained steady all evening and into the night. I didn't need those kind of travel conditions with my foot.

On the way home, I stopped by the Fresh Market to get some chicken salad. I ended up spending almost $45. I got chicken salad, fuji apples, granola, banana chips, gourmet snack blend and a couple of magazines. I think I am going to start making my own gourmet snack blend. All that's in it is pecans, cashews, pistachios, dried cherries and dried cherries. I think I'll get the premium mixed nuts and the dried berry mix and mix them together. I'm not too crazy about pistachios, but I'll eat them in snack mix.

Since the roads are still soaked and I didn't have anything planned, I decided to lay around and watch TV or whatever. I've been bored since noon. My mother called. She was bored. I guess I'll call BFF MAB and see if she' bored.

Tomorrow, I'm going to try to do some housecleaning and then head to Publix and the bookstore. Maybe my spending at Publix will be better than the Fresh Market.

I hope everyone enjoys the remainder of the weekend. If you live in an area that was hit by the snowstorm, please be extremely careful.

Love The Fresh Market! I can say that I spend so much money when I go there! I love to taste their sample coffee and love their "nut section."

Oooh, wish-wish-wish we had a Fresh Market, or even a Publix! (It is Kroger for us.)

Glad you have water again, what a nightmare!
