Holding on to my energy

Since Jeannie & Donald were taking the girls to Santa Cruz for the day, they wouldn't be going to the gym.  I decided I would go on my own because I've been feeling so good for a couple of days after exercising.  It wasn't at all crowded at 10:30 am and I got through what I wanted to do fairly quickly.  Instead of stopping at a couple of stores I need to go to, I came right home for a protein shake to help build those muscles that became flabby with non-use.

I saw my window cleaning supplies in the kitchen so I finished up on the "sunny" side of the house before the sun hit the windows.  There is so little humidity now that the Windex spray almost dries before I can wipe it with a towel.  In fact, I washed some of the windows twice because they dried so fast.

Well that is finished, but I can hear my mother asking me why I'm cleaning the windows and leaving dirty curtains up.  In fact I hate these curtains - they are old and yellowed and ugly, and I'd like to replace them.  It's just one of those things that keeps getting pushed aside.  There used to be an "Anna's Curtains" here in Rancho, but they closed the store and I would have to drive a ways to get to the only other one.

 i just made a trip to Target and other than my Chiquita bananas didn't find anything I liked.  Their prices have certainly escalated,  and considering their recent troubles with hackers, they may lose a lot of their customer base.  For myself, I buy a few things there once in a while but in no way do I consider myself a Target shopper.  I wouldn't dream of using any kind of a card there - cash only!

It's going to be a hot one today, so I'm planning on taking it easy.  It is already too warm to sit outside in the shade, but my house is still comfortable with the fan on.  The swamp cooler will be running before long.


  1. It always makes me laugh when I go to Target and when you check out they ask you if you would like to save 5% by using their red card....I just want to say "ARE YOU KIDDING ME"!! but I don't....I pay cash also.

  2. I just don't shop at Target at all. Although I think it is only a matter of time until Walmart and tons of other stores have the same problem. I used credit cards all the time for the convenience but they really are dangerous. Hope you find some new curtains you love.

  3. Can't remember the last time I shopped at a Target, and I avoid Wal-mart unless it is absolutely required. I'd like you to come and clean my windows. The Windex won't evaporate. :)

  4. I never shop at Target but if you can buy Chiquita bananas there I will go just for them. I haven't been able to find them at any grocery stores lately. Dole and Delmonty taste nothing like banana's to me.

  5. I guess I am the only one that loves Target, lol :D

    I love their prices on paper goods and getting a $5 gift card if I buy two advertised products. I do use their credit card on the few occasions that I am lucky enough to go to San Antonio even after the hacker attacks.

    In Del Rio we only have Walmart and I do not care for that store but have no other choice. There are always trade off to living in small towns,

  6. I can't imagine that kind of low humidity... I don't like to shop any more period ... I like Whole Foods and such but they piss me off too.

    always something
