The last few years have been quite difficult for me following many losses and unexpected events in my life. This has meant that I have stayed a lot closer to home while I am slowly finding my way back to a life with more Joy and Purpose and improved psychological Health!!! Perhaps, the biggest changing factor for me has been the loss of so many (and I really mean many) close friends and four-legged "love bugs" that have departed for The Hereafter. Even though I have lived alone for the majority of my life (for various reasons) I have found that at this stage of my life it is a lot more difficult to live day to day feeling enthusiastic, adventurous, creative and independent.
Well, anyway, I really enjoyed my day even though I did not have a companion to travel along with me to laugh, purr or bark and share the adventure. I visited Lowe's to buy the spray paint that I am going to use to refurbish my very old iron patio furniture. One Homecrest small adjustable-height table with two swivel-rocker chairs is from the 1970's and the larger table set with four chairs is from the 1980's. I tend to always take the best care I can of my things/possessions and the patio furniture is in great condition. A good spray coat of premium paint and it all should look sparkly brand new. I managed to find a few other things that have been on my shopping list for quite awhile.
Then, I stopped in at Applebee's Restaurant for a small lunch of Fish and Chips with cole slaw. It was nicely prepared and very good.
Then, off to Walmart for some paper products, cleaning supplies and a few miscellaneous items that have been on another list for quite some time. And much to my SURPRISE, the 27,000 square foot expansion and newly remodeled Supercenter had celebrated it's grand opening in June.
The large grocery department looked very nice from a distance as I knew I was too tired to peruse the whole store I will have to check out the produce next time.
The fellows were very happy with my little surprise for them.
Wishing all of you a Good Weekend and let's send positive thoughts/energy and prayers for all those impacted by Hurricane Harvey in the Texas region.
