I picked up another quilt from the longarm quilter. This is one my mother-in-law made. I'm hoping to get the binding on it before she comes.
While I was out, I went to Trader Joe's and found figs! I don't think I've ever seen figs in the supermarket before. I bought 3 containers, and plan to make preserves this weekend. I'm not sure how they will turn out, as these aren't as flavorful as last year's were from my sister-in-law's trees.
I also picked up several bottles of their French Berry Lemonade. I love it, but it has a pretty high sugar content. To cut back on the calories without losing any of the bubbles, I cut it with some of their Sparkling Mixed Berry Mineral Water.
When I was checking out, the cashier didn't want to put all the heavy bottles in a paper bag, so he gave me two reusable shopping bags...free!
I work tomorrow, so I thought I'd do a make-ahead, portable, healthy breakfast to grab on my way out the door. Overnight No-Cook Refrigerator Oatmeal from The Yummy Life.
I made one with figs, one with banana, and one with banana and figs. I'm set for the next few days.
But the thing that absolutely made my day was when I stopped by Sonic on my way home to pick up some magic ice. I had just pulled in, rolled down my window, and was about to order, when I began a sneezing fit. A mustachioed young man was walking down the sidewalk...wearing a t-shirt, a bandana on his head, big dark sunglasses, and a tough-looking swagger. Without breaking the swagger he turns my way and says, "Bless you." :) Oh how I love it when someone snaps me out of conclusion-jumping stereotypes in a good way. I think I smiled for at least an hour.
