Just home from Walmart and those that know me know what that means.
I some how ended up on candy aisle. I swear it was an accident. It was awful.Sooo much good stuff. I ended up with 1 small gingerbread cookie,1 claxton fruit cake,and a small bag of chocolate covered pretzels.The fruit cake I will cut up into small pieces and throw in freezer. On way home Bill went in Micheals and got me some dipping chocolate. I am going to blame that one on my cyber daughter Robin. I want to try to drizzle some on popcorn.
Back to my Walmart adventure. Bill also got a container of Bob's peppermint candy which is the soft peppermint candy.
Next I got Brianna's extra presents.She is only grandchild that gets extra but she is only one that is always helping me all year long. The Walmart we went to was not a super store but an older one that they are expanding. I found her a hair straighterner but they had a skinny and a fat one.Another shopper who was also shopping for a teenager told me her daughter liked the skinny one better.But I double checked with Angel and she said same thing.It is a wet/dry one.Sounded good to me. Then I was going to get her some eyeliner and mascara.I think 7-11 has a better selection.But I got her some anyway and then some hair bands and clasps for her hair.
And we know I always find me something.I wanted a new blouse but I didn't like any of them. But I went thru pans etc and saw a Paula Deen roasting ceramic dish. I roast veggies all the time so I got it
Bill also picked up a new set of towels for bathroom. And I got a few extra candles to wrap for unexpecting family showing up. We also stopped at shoe store and Bill got 2 pairs of shoes. So it was an expensive trip but all Christmas is done.
Bill's brother and his wife are coming to have lunch with us on Christmas day.I am fixing corning hens and baked /grilled veggies. I do have a very small ham in freezer and may fix that.None of us should be eating ham so this way it will just be a taste for everyone.Then they will stay for the afternoon and show us some card games.
We decided to move the futon out of back room so Bill's exercise gym can be put up.I was going to put it back here but it is too big.So Angel is coming to get it for Brianna as her bed needs to go. So we also got a full size air mattress to use in that room when Brianna spends the night.His gym thing will fold up. Plus I am giving her the sheets and comforter.I don't need them and it gets them out of my way.
I am giving my daughter Joy my ad-doer. We will have a nice little exercise room back there.
OK I have rattled enough. It was a good trip and all I have to do is wrap Brianna's present and put my sisters gift certificate in something.
My sister just called and said they are at emergency room with her husband.My other sister is with her. I think her husband is 83 and has some problems.Hopefully it isn't anything too serious. Now they think it diverticulitis.
Gotta go.I have to go get clothes in dryer. Bill is cooking tonight (Take-out)
Stay warm my freezing pals.
