Shopping Can Be Embarrassing

October 17, 2009

Today is a bit crisp, but sunny. My little garden is looking quite haggard. Wouldn't it be nice if we could put a heater blanket beneath the soil so that the flowers could bloom in the colder weather? On second thought, maybe they need that long winter sleep in order to put on a fine display come next Spring and Summer.

Yesterday, I did a bit of shopping. At my first stop, I found some lovely warm fuzzy socks for my daughter Laura, and some slippers for me. I also found a new little bed for Miss Tootsie, a book and a cutting board. Nice going. Then I went on to do my banking and food shopping. Next stop was at the library, but alas, I forgot to bring the books with me that I was returning.

Seems my day is beginning to peter out on me. I got home, and one of the dwarfs came out to help me carry in my bundles. They can be so helpful sometimes. While putting things away, I noticed that the bags containing all the goodies from my first stop were missing. I checked the car several times, looked everywhere I could think of and then called the store. Maybe I left them at the register or worse yet, in the carriage.

Nope!! Finally, the store manager agreed to see what he could do to help find the missing items. This morning - oh the pain of embarrassment!!! Quite accidentally, I stumbled onto the missing bags. They had been set down in a very obscure place (not by me), maybe to open a door or whatever, and then forgotten about. Well, I was very happy to see them, but now I had to call the store manager and give him my apologies and thank him for his help.

Tonight I am back to work. So now, I must make sure there is no laundry to do, clothes for tonight are set out, and make some lunch for myself and Miss Tootsie. She is trying to get used to her new little bed. After staying in it for about thirty minutes, she has decided to lay on the floor instead. Ah, well. I tried.

I have a couple of lovely photos to share today. These are some orange and lavender mums that are really quite lovely. Enjoy them. Y'all have a wonderful day now.

Hugs, Edna B.
