D and I got out of the house for a bit this afternoon. We had a late lunch, and then ended up walking around Best Buy for a while. We got our heads turned by a washer & dryer set, because we are old. Ha.
Speaking of D, I just ordered some of his Christmas gifts, and it feels good to have that done.
I had packages awaiting me when I got home earlier. I had two packages that contained loungewear. I decided to splurge and bought myself some things from Soma. So now I have a few bougie pajama sets. I figured this was a good buy given how much time I spend at home nowadays. Comfort is king!
Another package is the latest edition of Wildfire, which is a magazine for younger women who are facing life after a breast cancer diagnosis. This particular issue is the annual metastatic breast cancer issue, and I’m super excited to dig into it. I almost submitted a poem or essay myself, but I chickened out at the last minute.
I’m happy to report that I’m really into the book I’m currently reading. It feels like that has been a big problem for me lately, a lack of interest in things, so it’s nice to be feeling again. And hopefully I’ll get back to my normal reading schedule. My Reading Rivalry contribution was quite sad last month, and I felt bad when our team came in dead last. Oof!
I’ve had this weird craving recently for what I’ll call “old lady candy.” I’m currently on the lookout for those chewy neopolitan candies. I need them.
You know what I miss: a medium rare ribeye steak with a loaded baked potato and a Caesar salad. I’m not supposed to eat steak or lettuce, and I’m so very sad.
Tonight we’re having bbq salmon with pasta in a pesto sauce. I’ll allow it.
