I have not been blogging for a few days and YES I have missed it. Mouthie me has not been able to think of something to blow off about or rant about or to talk about. I know that is quite unusual for me and for those of you who REALLY know me. I guess lately I have been in a more "mellow mood" I feel that way anyhow!! Maybe I am just HOT!!

It is pretty warm here in the South East part of the world in the good ole' US of A!! I am sure it is going to (or already has for that matter) reach into the 90's today!! Our Air Conditioner is not working right AGAIN! Every year this happens and every year we have to get more freone added. Every year we bow our heads and PRAY that we are not going to have to have it replaced. One of these years (closer that I want to think about) we are going to have to BITE the BULLET and get it done. It costs a small fortune. I cannot worry about it though. Somehow we will just HAVE to do it. I guess we could use our tax refund check that we got in the mail yesterday. We received a WHAMPING big check yesterday from the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT for $2.00!! We keep struggling and working hard and they send us all they have!! ((smile)). I took it to the bank teller and asked her if the bank had enough money to cash our big refund!! She just laughed and of course told me NOT to spend it all in one place!!

Today was a fun day though. Tootsie, Baba, and my daughter all went shopping because Belks was having a SENIOR day!! Okay remember how you always wanted to be a SENIOR!!?? Well now you get discounts!! I found one top which is good but I was not in the mood to try on clothes. Lately I have felt FAT and well self-esteem is not in too good of a place in my life right now!! Everyone else did well but we had fun.

We went to SWEET POTATOES for lunch. I had alway wanted to go there because my favorite food is....................YEAP SWEET POTATOES!! I had the vegie plate with great Southern things like black eyed peas and corn pudding and sweet potatoes made with apples!! Yummy!! I was really enjoying that!! Hey Lazy Daisy you were right...that is a good place to eat!!

More shopping...more looking...Starbucks only for me...I splurged(Cinnamon Dolce')...back home...good day!! What more can a Flip Flop Lady like myself want out of life!!

Sounds like a pretty good day to me! Wish I could have come along! You know... usually when there's nothing to blog about it means you need to get out of the house! And that's what you did! Good for you!!!

Sandy, ...I skipped dinner tonight.I was still full from lunch.When hubby came home from work, I had him tackle his mess over the desk....He worked for two hours and a ton of old paper went into the paper shredder!!! It looks great now and I was proud of him.....The new baskets worked out well.... See you in the am. Baba

What a fun day! We don't have Sweet Potatoe resturants in NC but it sounds real good! You are so right about the heat... we had 95 today, can you believe it. The humidity was only 20% so it didn't feel like 95 (that's a good thing). Another hot one tomorrow, you better get that air fixed.

Sandy,
Thanks for coming by and commenting.

I love sweet potatoes. Lots of days I microwave one and it's delicious....

It's really hot and dry in south Georgia. The wild fires are playing havoc....

Summer is in full swing here and it's very hot. Our airconditioning is working over time to give us some relief.

Thanks for sharing about your fun day.
