Friday, 7 January 2011

I am so glad that it is Friday. I was at work by myself today. My coworker went home sick. There's a nasty virus going around and I don't want it. One of my distant cousins got a virus and then all of his organs shut down. He passed away on Wednesday. He was only 47 and a super nice guy. Every time I think about it, I say a little prayer for his family.

Today I was sitting at my desk reading something on the computer. I heard the elevator stop and the doors open. I looked up and in walked my two former bosses. I was so excited to see them. I was touched that they stopped by to see me. They were visiting someone in the building and stopped by on their way out. I would love to go work for one of them, but I know it is not meant to be at this time. Maybe things will work out in the future.

After work, I went out to the new outlets right outside of town. I wanted to check out Talbot's, Brooks Brothers, Cosmetic Company and RL/Polo. I didn't make it to RL/Polo. At Talbot's, I bought a black watch plaid 3/4 sleeve blouse. I can't wait to be able to wear it with my Austin Reed black skirt. I don't know whether to wear pearls or a gold necklace. I also bought a light gray turtleneck. Can't go wrong with that. Brooks Brothers looked picked over. I didn't see anything that struck my fancy. Same for Cosmetic Company.

After I left the outlets, I went to The Fresh Market to get some Gouda cheese. The lady in the deli was nice enough to slice it for me. I then went to Publix. I think everyone in town was in Publix. The weatherman has announced that we will be getting snow and ice beginning Sunday evening. That means that everyone heads to the store to get milk and bread. I've often wondered, who drinks that much milk and eats that much bread? That's the last thing that I want when I'm snowed in. I always buy the artisan breads. All that was left was a loaf of cranberry walnut. I snatched it. The man in the bakery was wrapping Italian bread and rye bread. I was lucky to get a loaf of Italian bread. There was only one jar of creamy peanut butter left on the shelf. I guess everyone had the same idea.

When I got home, I ate and then did a few chores. I have more to do tomorrow. I want to get done early so that I can go to lunch with BFF MAB. I also want to go by Publix to pick up some things that I forgot to get or that my Publix was out of. Maybe it won't be as crowded. You never know.

I hope everyone has a great Saturday.
