Yesterday was quite the day for me. A church friend has asked if I would go with her and her daughter to run an errand. She picked me up at 7:30 A.M. and off we went. We weren't able to do what we had planned on, so she took me back home. Another friend picked me up at about 11:00 A.M., and we were off for the day. We spent the whole day shopping and having fun.
We went to some stores in an area across the city from where I live. We did manage to stop for lunch at Subway, but then we kept on going. We went to 2 different Penningtons, Giant Tiger, Canadian Tire, Wal Mart and Toys R Us. I was able to buy an umbrella and stand that I can put next to my little patio table. My patio window faces the west, so I get the afternoon sun. It is so hot that I can't sit outside until later in the evening. With the umbrella I should now be able to sit out there during the day. My friend and I like a lot of the same things, and we have a wonderful time together. People think we're sisters. We didn't get home until 10:00 P.M.
When my friend dropped me off the security guard happened to come buy. He asked if everything was all right. I told him I had a lot of items to take into my apartment, and he went and found me a shopping cart to use. It sure was helpful. Thank goodness we have several carts around the apartment. People use them when they are moving in or out, or when they need to take their garbage or recycling down to the basement.
I sure managed to get a lot of walking in and I had fun as well. We are going to have to do that more often.
