I made it through another week. It was like climbing a mountain or maybe running a marathon. And so many last minute details thrown on my desk. But then the halls were quiet. The school tends to clear quicker on Fridays. I'm glad. Do I even have to tell you why?
I stopped by Barnes and Noble on the way home. I.T. girl told me a month ago she wants a Nook Simple with Glowlight. (Simple Nook? Nook Simple? Which is it? I'm too tired to google it) Ironman had gone by earlier in the week and they were sold out. The Engineer checked several places in Dallas. All sold out. So today I returned and reserved one. The assistant told me they were expecting a shipment on Tuesday. Let's hope they do and there are enough to fulfill all requests. Because her birthday is Thursday and that's what she's getting!
While I was there realized I was not ready to go home. As tired as I am and as frazzled as I've felt this week, I just wanted some quiet time. Fifteen minutes alone. Is that asking too much people? So I wandered around the store. Before too long I found myself looking at Home Decor books. I'd pull one out, flip through the pages, return it to the shelf. They were all filled with beautiful photography but none of them caught my fancy until I saw this one.
And then I wandered over to the cookbooks. I had heard about this book several times through different avenues and so I flipped through it in the store.
Makes me hungry just looking at the picture.
I checked the prices on both books and quickly remembered I have gift cards. In fact, I have three gift cards. I can get BOTH BOOKS. This must be how Oprah feels when she's shopping!!
I have a three day weekend to enjoy. I'm going to read and sleep and cook a new recipe from my new cookbook. Maybe I'll even try these waffles. I'm hungry enough right now to make waffles.
What are you cooking this weekend?
