Today was one of those weekend days that seems to go on forever. The weekends are the hardest for me to deal with Tech Support being gone. He is usually gone during the week normally. But then I would have him home all weekend making me tasty things to eat and cuddling. Oh, and mowing the lawn and scooping the cat litter. So him being gone over the weekends seems to make them last forever for some reason. Anyway, today I decided to treat myself a little bit. I had some errands to run and one of them took me near the Florida Mall. Now, I am not a big mall person. In fact I typically avoid them like the plague. However, the Florida Mall contains the Nordstrom’s, which contains the Bistro Cafe. Believe it or not, but they make the best french fries that I have ever tasted. They also make an excellent creme brulee. It seems odd to find such good food in a department store, but there it is. If you have one near you I would highly suggest checking it out. Trust me on this one, ok?
I also bought 2 tubs of World Market fortune cookies. If you like fortune cookies, then these are the best around and I would highly suggest that you not get a tub of them. You will eat them all and be feverishly addicted from that point on. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
I gave a bunch of violets away at the Herb Festival on Saturday. Most went to the folks that were working there with Traci, but some went to the Lake County Extension folks and some to the ladies that I saw from the Lady Lake Garden Club. (If you pay for 2 years worth of tuition, you get a free violet and lots of smiles!) I still have a small ton of them to find homes for so I will probably take some to crochet group Thursday night.
Now, I am going to veg and watch The Thorn Birds on DVD. What a fantastic story and a great movie.
