Today I bought eyebrow stuff, concealer, and even mascara. But I made a huge mistake - I also picked up a 10X magnifying mirror. Shouldn't have ever looked at it - I applied the eyebrow stuff and concealer and then took a look in the magnifier. Holy crap! I didn't realize how bad I actually look up close. That's what people with young, normal vision see, so I'd better hang around with old folks wearing thick glasses!
I also filled up my fuel tank - at $.40/gal. higher than the last time I bought gas, just about 3 weeks ago. I remember when the price per gallon hardly fluctuated, and I will never understand the extreme ups and downs of today's prices.
I wanted to buy my grandkids some Valentine's Day candy - you know, the little hearts with goofy sayings on them. These tiny little hearts have a list of ingredients you can't believe, the first two of which are sugar and high fructose corn syrup. I remember those things from when I was a kid, and I would wager they didn't use corn syrup, so why today do they need a double whammy of sweet stuff? Needless to say the grands aren't getting candy from me. As I was going through the checkout some unseen hand threw a York Peppermint Patty onto the conveyor belt, and before I realized it I was having a real blast from the past in the form of chocolate and peppermint cream. Heavenly!
What a storm they are having in the northeast. My d-i-l and the kids stayed home today, and my son came home early. I'm so grateful for the sun that is shining here today, although I would like to be in a little snow now and then. My son Steve and his family are heading for Lake Tahoe today, and I hope they have their chains along. A few years ago they drove my F-350 up the mountain and while everyone was chaining up the Ford was waved through. I miss that truck.
