Having a wonderful time! Wish you were here!

taillights.jpgPep talk to self: Git outta that cranky mood! And I think I am finally out of it a whole 24 hours later! Sheesh! Yesterday was a gray, foggy, drizzly day and I usually like that kind of weather but I like it better if I can get out into it and I couldn’t yesterday because I was at work. And then I left work and the reason I was able to take that picture without totaling my vee-hickle is because I was *sitting* in that long line of cars, inching toward the I94 18-wheel Slogway, hoping that it wouldn’t be backed up in my direction, and it usually isn’t and it wasn’t, so I was lucky. You can only see a small fraction of them in the pic. All in all it took me a half hour to get the seven miles or so from work to the Westgate Kroger and the only reason I went to the Westgate Kroger was because I tweaked the Thanksgiving menu just a tad at the last minute so I had to obtain a few more things. I knew it would be a zoo in there and I was right. Panicked shoppers with glazed-over eyes were standing with their carts in the middle of every aisle. Total gridlock. People, cooking a turkey is not that hard, so relax. And they were running out of things, including one of the ingredients on my list. I had to substitute. I’ll let y’all know how it turns out. *Finally* I got home and worked on organizing and packing stuff up. It was *still* a mad scramble getting out this morning and even though I had carefully packed the bourbon and vermouth, I forgot it (!) but that was okay because there’s a liq-wire store right next to the Best Choice deli/market and of course we had to go there too, for a few other things I also spaced out. Oh, and that feta spread, which they had already packaged because every other person who walked in there was buying it. Anyway, we’re here in the Great White North and I took a walk in the cold dark sleet and now I feel a bit more cheerful.

    Yo! We too are in the Great White Norther-North of your GWN…. Arrived about 1:30-ish, then proceeded to devour an Arby’s, figger out what was needed still and run out to Glen’s (then Parmer’s for the onion we forgot at Glen’s), back home, boots on and walkie the Dogz….brrrrr. Nap out on the couch, margaritas, food, and wait for Val to call in at The Bridge (whenever that will be….).
