Good morning friends!
If we were having coffee…I would welcome you to a crisp fall day here in Southern NJ…finally! Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, especially the part where I get to stay home and play instead of going to work, but, I was dead tired of the heat and humidity. I felt like it was extra oppressive this summer. Perhaps my age is catching up with me! Anyway, on Friday the weather took a turn and today is a high of 79. The doors are open and the air-conditioned is off. Hallelujah!
What do you all have going for this fine Sunday? Our plan for today is simple. It is an Philadelphia Eagles game day, which is a major event for my husband and I suppose for the rest of the family too (but mostly my husband 🙂 ) so we will be watching this afternoon all suited up in our green and keeping our fingers crossed for a win. In between, I’ll do laundry, a bit of cleaning and basically catch up with my life. Today is a stay at home day. Yesterday I did my running around.
Running around was actually just a trip to the mall but it felt like a big deal because I don’t go that often anymore. I desperately hate shopping for myself and that’s what I was doing-nothing major, just a fall jacket and maybe some tops for work. So, I literally walked from one end of the mall to the other and I’ve come to the conclusion that my body and my taste are out of style. Nothing looked like something I would wear. Plus, and tell me if you all are finding this too, every store looked understocked and messy, which made the whole thing even more depressing. I understand that many places are understaffed (still trying to figure out where all the pre-pandemic workers have gone to. Don’t they still need to make money? I know I do. ) and that many people have gone to online shopping (hard to try stuff on that way) but still it was very discouraging. My dream would be to have a personal stylist fill my closet with clothes that I love and that fit me perfectly. Probably not going to happen, huh?
Oh well. It’s still a beautiful day and it’s time I got moving. Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know what you’ve all been up to and don’t forget to visit the rest of the Coffee Share Post and our host Natalie The Explorer.
