We all have those crazy busy days - ones where you pack in a million errands.
Days where your mind is never on where you are or what you are doing, but rather on the next stop on the list or the next job to call finished.
Well, I could have had one of those days yesterday, but I made up my mind that I wouldn't do it.
- Bible study breakfast (good way to start the day!)
- Grocery store (with a little list)
- The Art Store (and The Frame and I)
- Order flowers at The Flower Box - my friend, Margie, is 90 years old now!
- See what's new at the Huckeba Gallery
- Get gasoline (that I might be able to get home)
- Costco (with a big list)
- Olsen's Grain (to keep the chickens happy!)
- Pick up mail at the Post Office
- Go home!!!
My day was too busy not to start with prayer. Then I enjoyed a little bit of sunrise - yummy colors! My friends and I enjoyed good company, great conversation, and a nice breakfast. The grocery store is never crowded that early in the morning. What's not to like about roaming through an art store and frame shop? Well - okay, insert fabric store, craft store, mall - or whatever you enjoy! Then add good friends and more fun conversation in there, too. Then I ordered flowers from a friend of mine, and got another nice visit. Took a tour through another friend's gallery and enjoyed a little more fun. Beginning to see a trend here?
Next on the list? Costco. Now, you are thinking how is Costco going to be relaxing on a Saturday? Believe it or not, there was no line at the service station. That's relaxing! Now it's time to grab my list and fill the cart - and have a nice chat with the photo clerk who gave me information about printers and another chat with the nice lady who knew where the raisins were. "No thanks - I don't need any boxes." And off we go!
Okay, I am getting a little bit tired now, but it is really cool inside Olsen's (both the store and the temperature!). And it's fun to read the message boards in the back of the store... But, we'll get that last sack of feed and mosey on to the Post Office.
