I thought of that title as I drove away from work this afternoon. I though to a brief description of the stops I planned might make a nice change from my usual Friday Lame Post. We’ll see.
Steven and I have plans for this evening, so I did not want to spend hours running round. However, I had said I would stop at Basloe Library to check their ongoing book sale for magazines such as might be good set dressing for Steel Magnolias. I could have done that tomorrow morning, but I have some major running around planned for Saturday. Then I remembered that I still had not contacted the lady at New 2 You consignment shop to tell her I did not want the dress she was so nicely holding for me. Yes, that is dreadfully inconsiderate of me. I hang my head in shame. Well, you know how it is: when I thought of it, I wasn’t near a phone; when I was near a phone, I didn’t think of it.
So that was my first stop. While there I also looked around for shawls or scarves that I MIGHT use to accessorize the dress that I MIGHT wear to be Ruby in Rubbed Out at Ruby’s. I did not find any, but I found a book that looks really good (I didn’t waste time looking at the books; this one just caught my eye) and a couple of long strings of beads. You can’t have too many long strings of beads. Ilion’s Dollar Store (I think it’s Dollar General; you know I’m never specific about dollar stores) is in that same area, so I stopped there as well. I found some fake money, which I need for Ruby’s and for Magnolias, so that was good.
As long as I was in Ilion, I checked their library for a book sale. They had one, but there were no magazines. I didn’t even get to look at the books much (just as well), because a large person was kind of hogging the space (it was only a couple of small rolling racks).
At Basloe, I found a lot of magazines but not specifically what I was looking for. I almost picked up a couple of magazine-looking recipe books for myself but after sternly reminding myself about all the recipe books, magazines and loose pieces of paper I currently have cluttering up my kitchen (and I usually just make something up anyways), I sadly put them back.
I did not get back home substantially later than I usually do. Then I spent enough time futzing about on Facebook and puttering around the house that I am completely NOT ready to go out and Steven is due home any minute now. Yikes! Well, at least I’ve made my blog post. Happy Friday, everybody.
