We are beginning to realize that the quaint “little” area that we thought we lived in is not so little any more. Schools are bursting, houses sell in a month and there is traffic everywhere! And we still have to drive to Delaware for a Trader Joe’s! There was a perfect spot that everyone around here had picked out for a Trader Joe’s but it’s going to be a Ross Dress For Less. So very sad! Then we were supposed to get an Aldi’s but now we aren’t even getting one of those. Delaware is not far away but we just yearn for a store we want to go to that’s right in our back yard…closer to home! Even our Dairy Queen was turned into a funeral home and Brewster’s Ice Cream literally just disappeared one day. Oh…we had the best fish store, too, and even it upped and moved further away! It’s a conspiracy!
This is why I always wanted to live in either Portland or Camden, Maine! I want to walk to morning coffee! I want to walk to dinner. I don’t want to walk to Ross Dress For Less! Ever!
Books! I cannot tear myself away from this book!
We made these yesterday! They were outrageously delicious! This is not a dinner that fills your tummy but it is so good! So we did what anyone would do after a low calorie dinner…
We had these! OMG…so good! But…why an eneven number? Does Magnum want us to fight over the third one?
So…it’s been a good week but an exhausting one…people are so kind to me…last week I zipped into Pier 1 because I love love love their Wildflower room spray. I spray it in all of the upstairs bedrooms and then shut the doors…when we walk into those rooms the scent is heavenly…light and wildflowery…anyway…a very nice lady was ringing me up and she commented on my hair and then I quickly told her about chemo and last year. She shared that her daughter in NYC was about to get married and was diagnosed with leukemia. Her daughter was being treated at Sloan Kettering and her daughter had a very cold unkind oncologist…so…there was a line of people behind me and this woman and I were holding hands and crying and wishing each other well…the kindness of strangers…right? It was such an incredible moment.
I am off to read…have a lovely week end!
