I am exhausted.

Darla picked me up and we went shopping at 9:30 this morning.  I have only been home for about a half hour. We went from store to store and found a few things for Christmas then for a late lunch.  I haven't been on my feet that long since I retired.  Poor things are just smokin'.  It wasn't raining when we left but by the time we headed for home it was.  Not a hard one though, just a nice little one.

You remember I've been going through closets looking for a scrapbook.  Well I went through some old purses, and lo and behold, found a book or two.  As I hardly ever go anywhere without one I was surprised to find the unread material still there.  Always have on in the glove compartment and usually one in my purse (when I carry one).  Now brings me to last night.  We went to the funeral and after they had a luncheon for the family and friends at the Moose.  When we left I drove Sherry home and realized I didn't have my purse.  A quick call assured me it was still there and I had to go retrieve it.  Well, they all laughed of course, and asked how a woman could forget such a thing.  I informed them that as I hardly ever carry it there I wasn't used to grabbing it when I leave.  I'm certainly glad that that was where I left it.  Could hav been disasterous elsewhere. 

I think maybe I will take a late nap.  You all have a good evening. 

May you all have a wonderful Thankgiving!

  1. By all means take ah nap lol.
    Glad the mystery of the scrapbook is solved.

  2. My purse weighs a ton as I have half of what I own in it. I never go anywhere without my purse and my worst nightmare is that I might lose it. I am glad you found yours.

    I feel the same way about books. I love to read.

  3. I dread shopping for Christmas. It's just the little ones though, thank goodness.
    So glad you found your scrapbook and purse.
    Have a nice Thanksgiving.

  4. I read books in spurts. I'll read 3 in a row then I won't read another for 2 or 3 months.
    I love the George Burns quote.
    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  5. I loved the George Burns quote too. So true! Shopping is so very tiring. Maybe relax and have a nice soak in the bathtub - so relaxing.

  6. Well, I'm sure glad you got your purse back, I have to admit I am surprised that you'd forget it! I know that we are really creatures of habit and if things shake that up it can be cause to do something like that. You have great Thanksgiving there too my friend!
