Monday seemed like a mob scene everywhere we went. It was Martin Luther King Day, a federal holiday and a lot of people must have been off from work. I know that they were all out on the roads and in the stores.
Our plan was a trip to a thrift store that opened since we were here last. We had a bit of a hitch and took the wrong road but finally found our way back . I didn’t have any luck finding anything but Margot got 6 dining room chairs for $40!! The tricky part was getting them in the van, but we did a jigsaw puzzle thing and they fit! Great Deal for Margot!
Outside of the back of the thrift store, where we had to go to pick up the chairs we sa a man feeding a lot of big birds, I think there were cranes and herons in the group plus some smaller birds.
We made a stop at a Salvation Army store in the same area. We stopped and couldn’t figure out why we were just barely able to get a parking spot. When we got to the front of the store we understood. Everything in the store was 50% off!! It was crazy in there. I also didn’t find anything there and none of us wanted to wait in the line to pay. I actually saw two women fighting over clothes. It was crazy!
We had a quick lunch at Taco Bell. I picked a bean burrito.
It doesn’t photograph very well, but it is very tasty. It counts for 9 points on Weight Watchers, but it’s much more filling than getting 2 soft tacos which I usually get. It’s 1 point more but worth it because it holds me over for a long time.
For dinner we decided to eat in and it was a matter of everyone doing something for dinner.
I had a Morningstar Farms California Turk’y Burger, brown rice, roasted asparagus, cottage cheese, cranberry sauce and salad. We made a huge salad so I had a second helping of that. It was delicious!
Dessert was lime sugar-free Jello with a dollop of fat-free vanilla yogurt on top. Very tasty!
I want to leave you with a photo I took in the area where the man was feeding the birds.
I thought it was so pretty! I love when I just stumble upon a photo waiting to happen!
Not sure what Tuesday holds for us. I’m sure it will be an adventure!
