Saturday – The Way It Should Be…..

After all the Gala planning, home renovations, and other stuff going on either done or not the major time consuming activity it was, I promised myself a weekend that focused on relaxation… I kept that promise and had a wonderful day!

After my chilly awakening (see previous post), I bummed around the house a little – read the Sanford Herald on-line, caught up on the blogs I have in my favorites, balanced my check book, paid some bills, did a load of laundry, emailed and exchanged IMs with my Mom, and played with the girls.

About noon-ish, I was dressed and ready to head out for the day. The plan was to hit some downtown shops to start getting ideas and maybe even buy a few things to kick off the Christmas shopping season. The last two years, I started way too late and was still shopping at the last minute – totally contrary to my usual practice of being done by Thanksgiving…

  • I started my day with lunch at Java Express – I had a delicious Vidalia Chicken Salad sandwich on toasted Wheatberry bread, nutty broccoli salad, and a glass of refreshing fresh squeezed lemonade – YUM!
  • Then, I went next door to the Sanford Antique Mall and looked around — they have so many great things! I always enjoy spending time in there!
  • Then, I went to Shoppes At Steele Street and found a couple things (not telling what or for who) and got some ideas that I will think more about. I can usually find that perfect little unusual gift or something special for myself in there! It is always on my list of places to go when shopping for gifts.
  • I had planned to go to George Norman Antiques and Collectibles – another great place to find something special and unusual – but it was starting to get late so I decided to leave that for another day.
  • My next plan was for a pedicure – that was an absolute MUST! I decided to try the new salon in the Super WalMart. It was really nice!!! They did a great job – I got the Deluxe Pedicure, which was totally relaxing!
  • I topped it all off with a banana split at the Dairy Bar……..enough said there!

I came home and took a nap with the girls and feel totally refreshed and renewed! Other than the couple of first Christmas gifts, it was a totally unproductive and non-hectic day — just what I had in mind!!!!

Some possible items on my tentative agenda for next Saturday – BPWs Game of Life, Memory Walk, ARTober FEST at Depot Park, The Brush and Palette Show at the Old Armory, and maybe a visit to George Norman…..Saturdays throughout October will be devoted to hitting specialty shops for Christmas shopping!

Saturdays are back to what they should be…WOO HOO!!!
