Gentle Friends, as you well know by now I am a creature of habit. Year in and year out I like knowing whats going to happen, doing the same things, knowing when and where and for how long..... pretty boring, but that's the way I am, gotta love it. Now, with that said, life usually throws a curve ball in my direction about every three seconds to disrupt my ever pleasant, even going, temperate nature (there would be those who would disagree with that little statement..... but, I do love my rose coloured glasses!!) and one was thrown in our direction yesterday.
Our routine for Sunday is as follows.... attend 8 am Mass, then on to breakfast, either at Mickey D's or some Cafe, then on to Trader Joe's, then home..... yesterday we decided to go to Mickey D's, and part way through my Bacon/Egg and Cheese biscuit the fire alarms went off. After sitting about 5 minutes listening to the racket, and getting no information - we gathered up what was left of breakfast an trotted out to the car to finish. After another 5 or so minutes - the Fire Truck, Hook and Ladder, Emergency Vehicles and mall Security all showed up and tossed everyone out of TJ's ( Trader Joe's is two doors down from Mickey D's) we knew we were not getting to do our regular TJ run. We do have options, there are a few other TJ's in the area, so we drove down to the West lake one, about 5 minutes down the road from Stonestown Mall..... I knew that on the way was.....
... so we stopped and picked up......
... thank goodness this Krispy Kreme is a good distance out of the City, any closer and it might get to be a regular stop on the weekends!! We did get to the TJ's down in West lake and eventually made it home to settle down into a regular Sunday afternoon....... and late in the afternoon I made a pot of tea and it was made extra delicious with one of these donuts!!!!
Another Seasonal routine I like, when it comes around is Easter and the candy explosion...... you can tell it's near Easter when this is sitting out.......
...... like candy corn in the Fall, Black Jelly Beans are the harbinger of Spring in my book!!!!
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
