Rattlesnake beans, ready to plant.
Quite a day. I knew I wanted to go back to town today because- okay, well. It's a long story. I'll try to keep it short.
I have a purse obsession. Not as bad as it used to be by any means. In fact, I have not bought a new purse since before Covid. So, you know- it's under control. And in fact, I've been quite happy with that purse. After all these years of usage, there are no rips or tears and the zippers still work. It's a backpack bag which I do love because I always know where my purse is which is on my back.
But at Christmas, Jessie picked out a new purse for herself and asked me if I'd get it for her, which I gladly did, and it was so much like mine that I have accidentally picked it up by mistake. But then yesterday I told her that I was thinking of buying a new purse and she just happened to go to TJ Maxx yesterday afternoon and started sending me pictures of the purses there and there were quite lovely. So fuck it- I decided to go there today and I did. My Target experience had sucked but I decided to give recreational shopping another try.
I immediately found two purses that set my heart beating a little faster. One was a backpack bag, the other was not, but it was SO my sort of bag. I thought about it and thought about it and could not make a choice so...I BOUGHT BOTH OF THEM!
Plus, it was Senior Discount Day and you know that 10% off made a big difference. Right?
So now I have all the purses I need for the rest of my life. This is comforting.
"But it's gonna get cold again this week!" he said.
"I know! In the thirties!" I answered.
"It's always got to get cold once in March," he told me with all of the wisdom of his years. "And then, it'll be done."
