Does This Count?


So, yesterday was a super long day.  I am not complaining, just explaining. Because in fact, yesterday was a great day! GGRRR-EAT (Tony Tiger great) day!

I got to bed at 1:30 am yesterday. I tend to fill my plate pretty full, and then I tend to procrastinate. So, if you add those together it equals some late nights. There, that is my confession for today.

Anywho! Yesterday was the last day of our ladies Bible class. We voted on our next study, completed the current study, and then enjoyed a potluck luncheon. I think we all had a great time!

After class, I had to run a few errands and the first stop was Wal-Mart, aka Wally World or Wally's Family Fun Center, and noone enjoys going there. Oh, it is such a dreaded place. But, I walked in that door with my head held high, a smile on my face, and my list running through my head. I am also very bad about making a list and leaving it at home.

The first thing on my list was a copy of Ree's new cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks – A Year of Holidays. As I approached the cardboard Ree standing in the middle of the aisle I noticed that there was a woman standing there with a rather unhappy look on her face. She was staring off as if she was day dreaming, but as I passed by she glanced at me. A little jolt of excitement went through me as I grabbed the book. I wondered if my grabbing one would draw her attention to the book as well. Not that Ree needs any help selling books, I just wanted to see if the "monkey see, monkey do" thing would actually work.

It did! This monkey, got that grumpy monkey to pick up Ree's book. In my own little way, I helped that monkey have a better day. Who can flip through any of Ree's books and not smile.

Then, as I was heading down another aisle I got the sudden urge to jump on the cart and ride down the aisle. I didn't do it, but it made the smile on my face even bigger. That is kind of how my day went. It was a good day!

I sat down to watch one of my favorite shows, NCIS, on television and completely forgot that I needed to write a blog post. I had even thought about telling you all of this yesterday, and then I forgot! I blew the whole NaBloPoMo thing! I can't believe it! I meant to post! I really, really did! So, if I publish this and try to add the time and date as yesterday at 11:59 pm, will that count?

    I couldn’t contain my excitement when my new cookbook arrived in the mail last month! I went straight into the house, Thankfully sat down a sleeping Augustus, and turned on cartoons for Ella and Bethany did her home work, and I sat in Scott’s chair and started looking at it page by page, and when Scott got home I had just finished looking at it, and said, “Oh Honey, you are going to be inlove with this new book” he grinned and said, “You got your new Pioneer Woman?” I smiled really big!!! I have done a couple and I’m doing several for Thanksgiving from the Thanksgiving Chapter!!!
    P.S. I’m the same way about Wally world…I wish we could get a Super Target….awwww wishful thinking…. Great to see you yesterday!!

    Good for you for posting regardless of when! FWIW your post showed a date of 11-19-13 and a time of 9:59pm… maybe it knew you wanted it to post on the 19th?? I’ve never understood blog platforms and how to date, schedule, etc. (not that I’ve blogged much….ahem, just once, actually). I think we need to send a note to our friend Ree (I don’t really know her, but she really IS your friend) about including you on the list of folks to whom complimentary (or is it complementary) copies of her books should go. You’re IN them afterall….at least some of the time. Anywho, good for you for making fun out of whatever you find in front of you at the moment. Maybe you should go try that monkey-see-monkey-do trick in the cookbook aisle again and see if it keeps working 🙂 PS I used to go to WalMart all the time (my dog needed a prescription med that was cheapest at WalMart) but haven’t been in one in years now. I don’t miss it.
