for this blog. It amazes me.
I made a second trip to Hobby Lobby yesterday for their grand opening. Not a whole lot different than when I was there on Friday except more muckity-mucks in suits running around looking important. Which is what they do best. That and interrupt the salesperson who is already helping someone to go help someone else that the other eleventy-billion and one employees who are standing with their thumbs up their asses couldn't do. @@ Lord but I hate the Corporate Suits! I was looking for ONE thing in particular. Couldn't find it. Asked an employee, who asked another, who asked another. I had THREE people plus me looking. Nope. No gots. Will see if they can get it in. Thankeweverymuch! I did manage to find some cute Christmassy "things' I had missed, so I got them to put up for next year. And a beautiful cardinal "welcome" sign that is supposed to be for Christmas, but I think it will be great at my front door year-round. So since I couldn't find what I was looking for, off to Michael's and JoAnn's to see if they might have it. No go for Mike's so across the street to Jo's. They had what I needed! Shoulda walked out the door a happy camper. But no. I had to walk the Christmas aisles "since I was already there!" Didn't have anything that wowed me til I got to the food aisle. FOOD?! At JoAnn's? I didn't know it either. But they have quite a nice selection of Christmas candies and cookies and other holiday-ish noshing stuff. And then I saw them. Peppermint Peeps shaped like stars! Seriously! So in the quest of scientific research for this blog, I bought a package. Now I'ma Peeps purist. They must be yellow and they must be chicks. Nothing else. It's what my father taught me. But chicks and Christmas don't so much go together. So I bought o n e package for my research. You can see by the accompanying picture that three are missing. Research is H A R D. These things are the bomb! There are now 6 missing. It is a pkg of 9. The rest will be gone today. And I'll be making a return trip to JoAnn's for more before everyone realizes how good they are. You can also get them online.
