Cookies, Limeade and a Barong

It’s Friday and I had the day off from work. Yay for me! Sometimes you need a day all to yourself to do whatever you please. At least I do.

I didn’t do much. Slept in a little which isn’t easy with my kitties. I figure Beau will eventually eat me when he gets big enough since he spent an hour chewing on my arm today. What a silly little critter he is.

I went to the farmer’s market and got some utterly decadent cream-filled cookies, like whoopee pies only made with huge chocolate chip cookies. Super yummy! If you stop by real soon I might have one left. And if I’m in a really, really good mood and like you a whole lot I might even share it with you. I also stopped for limeade. It’s hot today and I really like that. Hmm, might be pushing your luck if you expect me to share that too.

Driving home in the early afternoon I wondered at all the people roaming the streets of my neighborhood. Most of them didn’t give the impression that they would take kindly to my stopping them and questioning them as to what they were doing wandering in the middle of a traditional work day. I decided my block and the surrounding area definitely had some odd characters.

Not me, of course. Just because I was dancing around like a little kid when I got home and found my new machete had been delivered in my absence I still do not think I fit in to the same classification as they all do. No my odd is different, an oddness unto itself as it were. But I digress. My new machete is soo pretty, 18 inches, all black and sharp with a nifty black sheath to keep it in when I’m not using it. What’s that? Oh yes indeedy, I fully intend to use it but perhaps you’re better off not knowing about that.

Happy weekend everyone!

I'm off from work today and tomorrow, too. But I don't get to enjoy them - bronchitis - stuck in bed. Thank God for the internet and lap tops.

As far as people hanging around during traditional work hours, there are many people who work non-traditional work hours or work part time. Then there's retirees and stay at home moms, too.
