Normally on a Sunday morning I pull myself together and pop into my neighborhood thrift store for a quick perusal of the latest goods and a little chat with Patty and JJ. We are the faithful Sunday morning “gang.” JJ has often said that the store should put out coffee for us. (I agree!) Afterwards I would head over to my church.
I miss that routine! I miss my church family. I miss all those little Sunday morning connections with people. My husband asked me what I was going to do today and I said, “Darned if I know!” There are a lot of things I could be doing. There’s a tub that needs scrubbing, dusty furniture that shouldn’t be dusty and things that need listing. Hmmm…I’ll save those for another day.
To satisfy my hunting itch I poked around eBay and Etsy. Decided to make an offer on this vintage Russian lacquer pin listed on eBay and they accepted. I look for lacquer pins that depict fairy tales, people or scenes (not the more ubiquitous flowers), signed pieces and those with fine, intricate painting. This 2″ pin had all three!
On a disturbing note I have heard anecdotally that gun and ammo sales have been brisk in some parts of the country. I’m guessing some folks think this pandemic will cause societal breakdown and widespread looting, etc. and want to be prepared to take on all comers to their property. Yikes!
Found a jar of alfredo sauce in the cupboard and made a casserole with the sauce, chicken and broccoli topped with parm cheese for dinner. Easy and tasty. It would have been good served over a bed of noodles.
We watched “Captain America” last night. Not my kind of movie, but it was nice to end the day together as we had mostly stayed out of each other’s hair all day.
Day six done.
