I have put off for months driving into Nashville. A dozen places are on my list.
My cell phone needs to be updated. It has been dropped more times then I can remember and I am surprised it even works. Even dropped in the toilet several times. I have a habit of sticking it in the back of my waistband as pockets are shallow and I might lose it. Consequently when I have to make an errand I forget the phone is in my waistband and it falls in the toilet.
Here are the results of the visit to the phone store. The young man asked me if there was something wrong with my phone. I replied "no." Just my contract was up for renewal and wanted a phone with larger screen and numbers. (plus my little granddaughter wants grandma's old phone to play with) I was told if I get that type of phone it has a lot of features I do not use and do not want to learn how to use - that my phone bill would increase.
The nice young man informed me that my phone was better then many on display and had greater battery time. So ---- I still have my old phone.
Have a gift card that is months old for the really big grocery. So I purchased a lot of small items. A pro biotic fruit drink that is loaded with vitamins - my favorite flavor - mango. Some items that my local grocery does not carry - tahini and miso. Guess what ??? I forgot to use the gift card - it is still in my purse.
Doctor appointment at 8:00; I left home at 6:45 and traffic was so bad I was 15 minutes late. Called to let them know I was on the way. Needed a booster tetanus shot and flu shot. Important since I might come across some old piece of barb wire. Callie has scratched me several times with her nails. Not meaning to but when she jumps up my arms are the victim. Also wanted to share about my fall 3 weeks ago.
It was impressed upon me once again that I should not hesitate taking the medication I have for this ongoing colitis. I just do not like to take anything. It is so severe lately. Lymphatic Colitis is inflammation of the colon. Just a nuisance and then stress makes it worse.
Was able to stop at the wonderful bakery for Tuscany bread. It is so good when it is slightly warmed and toasted in olive oil in a frying pan on the stove.
In the parking lot my best sunglasses fell off my face. Lucky, the optical shop in the mall put the part that goes over your ear - back on.
Did not go to 3 places on my list. Would like a new pair of walking shoes. Did buy a new pair of jeans. Will be my big city jeans - all I have very faded - which I love - but some I will take for doing work in the woods. I never fail to find slacks that fit me at Banana Republic. Will not share the size....
I love browsing in a shop where so much looks old. I could pull up a chair and just stay in Anthropologie.
Should treat myself to a nice sit down lunch ... but will probably grab something quickly at one of the eating places and head back to the country. Did just that - my favorite hot dog place.
Veggie dog on wheat bun with his homemade cold slaw - so guess it was not too unhealthy.
So I left the big city with items still on my list. Wanted to drive by my city home. Was getting late in the day and I just headed back to the woods and Miss Callie.
No one in my lifetime has ever ever greeted me with so much love as this little dog. I let her out of her pen and she almost dances!! Callie, guess I will keep you :)
I will return to the big city in a few weeks. My to do list will be smaller.
The mistress of Woodhaven is very tired. 4 messages on phone that need to be returned.
She is calling it a day. A busy day that started with her getting up at 4:30 a.m.
The wonderful picture of Nashville was taken by my daughter Jamie. I told her it looked like a painting.
