My lack of camera has me resulting to craziness so that pictures will be present and your eyes will feel entertain as my words stimulate your mind. (tee hee)

Next stop – Walgreens!

That seems like a lot, kinda.
Then I went to First Watch – a “daytime cafe” and had a FREE breakfast! Seriously! If you sign up for their “Sun e Club” you get an email worth a free menu item! So, I ate my turkey omelet (egg whites, turkey, spinach, tomatoes, and feta) and read my book – so fun.
I took my calendar, notebook, and birthday gift card and planned for the week ahead (big week coming up!)
Next: haircut. I LOVE the lady who cuts my hair. She loves Jesus and it is FUN and ENCOURAGING to spend time in her chair. She has been cutting my hair since I was pregnant with Little (so, five years) and really helped us through seminary. Today she helped with the maniacal wave in my hair that appeared after giving birth and I CANNOT control. She used some Redken product, it worked, and so she gave me the bottle!!! WOW!!!
Now I am home and the tune of “There shall be showers of blessings” keeps floating through my head. So, maybe I am not cheap. Maybe I am frugal. Maybe I am wise. Maybe I am just plain blessed.
