The last few days have had the appearance of snow days, and I don't like that feeling. I need sun and blue skies. On my morning walk with Cricket, I've put on a jacket and even a hat. It's not natural . This is Florida.
I feel the need to go Christmas shopping when the weather is like this ,and I don't celebrate Christmas. In the Mid West, merchants don't like warm weather around Christmas. People aren't in the mood for shopping . I was even
thinking about going to a shopping mall and just sitting there to watch the shoppers. That sounded like fun. For a few minutes.
My favorite store for " just looking" is
a book store. There are only two in my area. One is more fun than the other. One has a Starbuck's. We give ourselves a time frame when we go there. We meet in a certain area , at a certain time. I can look at coffee table books that I would never buy, magazines
that I love and every cook book on the shelves. Book stores are shopper friendly. They expect you to browse.
Another good place to spend time on a grey day is in an electronics store . Lots of buttons to push
and things that I have no idea what they can do. It's almost like going to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. I am such a cheap date.
It's never too late to hope for a typical , sunny , warm day
in Paradise, but if it doesn't happen, go to plan B and take a field trip to a mall.
